Congratulations to Arilyan Steenblock and Jayson Stagg for winning the Peace Poster 2018 contest for Panorama Middle School. This contest is sponsored by the Jamaica and Panora Lion's Club. This year's theme was "Be Kind." Students are not allowed to write any words or numbers on their posters, but use pictures to express their message. Jayson and Arilyan will represent Jamaica and Panora for a larger contest and each receive a $50 prize.
On your mark, get set, Go!
Biology students completed photosynthesis relay races with Mrs. King. The teams were racing to build a glucose molecule first after accumulating enough energy (ATP) and splitting water to get hydrogen, and using CO2. It was a little crazy, and little wet (they used water to represent solar energy) but it looks like they had fun!
The HS Student Council asked that students, staff, and community uses this time to reflect and honor ALL those who have served or who are serving in our Armed Forces. Currently, there are more than 22 million Veterans who have served in the United States Armed Forces. It is quite likely that one of our parents, grandparents, siblings, or neighbors are a Veteran or still serving. These heroes helped shape America.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI. This year, Veterans Affairs facilities in communities all across America take time to offer a special recognition of the significance of the U.S. participation in the ‘war to end all wars’. For 99 of the past 100 years, Americans have remembered those who served our country in uniform on the 11th of November in the Great War – first as Armistice Day, and then, since 1954 as Veterans Day. As first declared by the President last year, this year November again marks a month of recognizing our Veterans and their families in service to our country and communities
Guest Speaker was Lynn Zajicek, a veteran from Panora who has served in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, and other countries while in the Army National Guard.
Our Student Speaker was Harley Hester a freshmen at Panorama and who recognized a very special veteran, her great-grandma Joan Allen.
Chris Helm, directed the high school choir and Collin Law-Reinhart played Taps. The Flag Ceremony was lead by our local Boy Scouts.
Thank you to everyone who helped honor our Veterans.
