On December 6 - 7, 2012, the Adams County Tech Prep culinary arts students hosted their first ever luncheon for the community. Here is a podcast of the opening. If you are in the area of Gettysburg on December 20 - 21, why not give this restaurant a try. Cost is a mere $12.00 per person and the gustatory experience far outweighs the cost. Reservations can be made by emailing Chef David Haynes at firstname.lastname@example.org. Bon Apetite!
Tech Prep Building Trades, under the guidance of Dave Snyder, teacher, has begun the work on James Gettys Elementary classroom pavilion, which is to be finished sometime next year. The students are shown here surveying the area for the build. Principal, Donna Kluck, explains the project and its expectations with Barbara Kingsley, Communications Coordinator for the District.
Watch and listen for more progress on this interesting collaboration between high school students and the elementary school. This is project based learning at its best!
My very mature granddaughter, Phaedra, attends a private Chinese school in Hong Kong. She recently wrote a song about a bullying incident at her school which left her “Drop Dead Speechless.”
Please enjoy her words of wisdom as she recounts the events that led up to the writing of this song, which is her attempt to challenge the bully in her life. Good for you, Phaedra.
VERSE 1: Hey, you're drop-dead speechless, make another guess, said you know me better than anyone else, or so you say, but not today.
Now, you're sittin' there starin' at me, wonderin' what to do, saying under your breath, 'gosh, what happened to you?! and so I say, I guess I'm different today.
BRIDGE: Yeah, I've known you for sometime now, and I only remember how you used me, how you broke me.
CHORUS: 'Cause, you and I know we can't go on like this, We just don't get along, it's plain obvious, but hey, it was your choice to make. And, you never meant anything you said so I think it would be better if we parted instead, or so you say speechless, drop-dead speechless.
VERSE 2: I can tell what I said has taken you back, makes your mind go blank and your face go slack. And now you see, Just how much it cost me. And now you're realizin' how much it actually hurt. Did you really think that was goin' to work?! But now you know, It's time for me to go!
Mitzy is a six year old Chihuahua/Rat terrier mix, who hates the fire/police siren. This podcast is her response to the sirens when they scream past our house. I wish you could see her when she howls. She holds her head up, facing her nose to the sky and howls like a wolf baying at the moon. She is, indeed, a hoot.
