Reading and leading

Monday, February 11, 2019 by The Press in School

Representative Jeanne McNeill read to Mrs. Susan Walker’s 2nd grade Class at Calypso ES recently as part of the “Teach a Girl to Lead” reading project by the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University. Women Legislators from across the country were asked to read “Grace for President” to young students to “inspire girls to follow in the footsteps of women leaders, and to help boys grow up with more inclusive ideas about who can lead.” McNeill then donated the book to Calypso’s library.

STUDENT PROFILE - Lean Fastenau, Freedom HS - by Julia Swan

Monday, February 11, 2019 by The Press in School

Grade: 12

Family members: Jean Fastenau (mom), Joel Fastenau (dad), Kamrin Fastenau (sister)

Favorite subject: Calculus because it was such a joy to take – the teacher (Mr. Young) was great and most of my friends were in my class. Math has always been my strongest subject and calculus came very naturally to me. I’m also enjoying taking American Sign Language. It’s such an intriguing class, learning not only signs, but also about deaf culture.

Saucon Valley HS has created a Global Scholars Club under the guidance of Spanish teacher and world traveler Theresa Andreucci. The club focuses on raising cultural awareness and a joy of travelling through a variety of events and meetings.

“I had the idea to bring the program to Saucon because I knew a lot of students would be interested,” Andreucci said. “We have many students with global interests, some have already traveled abroad and others who someday will travel and want to learn about other cultures.”
