The front parking circle was transformed into a parking lot for 10 different vehicles and their drivers. The students rotated through the stations where the presenters shared a bit about their vehicle and career.  Careers on Wheels Day is a career awareness and exploration event for young sPicture Collage of Career on Wheels Day Vendorstudents coordinated by the school’s counseling office with assistance from various school employees.

Aevidum hosted the third annual October Fun Night on October 24th. Kennard-Dale High School opened its doors to the youth of the community for Trick-or-Treating and games.

The Male Mentors Volunteer Program at Stewartstown Elementary is in its fourth year of providing men from the community to assist students in their classrooms. Mr. Wendell Mulder and Mr. Steve Freeman volunteer one day a week to help students review their math facts, practice their spelling words, revise their stores, discuss the books they are reading, and help with many other learning activities as directed by the students' teachers. In addition to helping the students academically, the men serve as role models for the students, demonstrating how caring and mature men work cooperatively with teachers and students. Both the mentors and the teachers often comment on how the men's presence and assistance is of great benefit to everyone involved.

Men in the community who have their proper clearances on file in the school district's main office are welcome to join in this rewarding program. Please contact Mr. Michael Buleza, program coordinator, at or 717.993.2725 for more information.


Kennard-DaFall Play Rehearsal Picturele High School will be presenting 12 Angry Jurors, by Sherman L. Sergel, for their annual fall play.  

On a hot summer day after a long trial, a jury must decide whether a 19-year-old man is guilty of murdering his father.  The jury votes 11-1 that the man is guilty of the crime, but the law requires a unanimous vote by all 12 jurors in order to pass judgment.  What begins as an open-and-shut case of murder soon becomes a detective story that presents a succession of clues creating doubt.  Tempers flare as a mini-drama of each of the jurors' prejudices and preconceptions about the trial, the accused, and each other comes to light.  It is a courtroom thriller that puts you on the edge of your seat while powerfully exploring what it means to live in a democracy.

Cast members include:  Ashlee Bowers, Maren Carr, Curtis Druck, Julieann Gawlik, Kaley Gilland, Sam Greaves, Kasey Karoll, Mackenzie Lengal, Tariq McGriff, Abby Mooneyhan, Viktoria Panayotova, Leah Pavey, Kayla Pijanowski, Alyssa Thompson, and Julia Wecker.

The production staff includes:  Ms. Barbara Peterson as director, Mr. James Craley as Assistant Director and Technical Director, and Mr. Chad Druck as Set Builder.  Molly Holz and Lilian Kreiss are the Production Stage Managers.

The show will take place on Friday, November 16 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, November 17 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m.  Tickets are $8.00 and can be purchased in the main office or at the door.  For more information, call the high school main office at 717-382-4871.
