North Strabane Intermediate Students Hosting Supply Drive for Shelter Animals
At North Strabane Intermediate, part of being “Anchored in Excellence” is giving back to the community, and each academic team in the school has committed to participating in a one-month service initiative.
Team Independence decided it wants to focus its charitable efforts on a cause close to its heart: Helping animals, particularly the ones at the Washington Area Humane Society – a no-kill shelter just minutes away from their school that takes in 4,000 furry and feathered friends each year.
“Needless to say, they need a lot of supplies,” said sixth-grade reading teacher Mrs. Lauren Ihrig, who helped organize the drive along with Mrs. Haddox, Mrs. Gonze, Mrs. Richardson, Mrs. Fiscus, and Mr. Marra.
She added that the WAHS’ need for supplies is even greater this time of the year – after the holidays – when donations slow down.
Here’s how Team Independence’s supplies drive will work: Starting Monday, Feb. 8, homerooms will compete to see which can bring in the largest number of donated items. Monetary donations will also be accepted – with each dollar counting as one item (the school will purchase a gift card of the humane society’s choosing with what is raised). The homeroom brings in the most donated items earns a pizza party!
Letters went out to parents explaining the process and the items most needed at the Washington Area Humane Society.
The drive will continue through Feb. 26.
Editor’s Note - Here is a list of items the Washington Area Humane Society needs the most. Members of the community who would like to donate may drop off donations at 1527 Route 136, Eighty Four, PA 15330 (right next to the Spring House):

Canon-Mac School Director Appointed to State House Advisory Committee
Congratulations to Canon-McMillan School Director Joseph Zupancic, who was recently appointed to the House Resolution 540 (Zero Tolerance School Discipline Policies) advisory committee by Rep. Warren Kampf.
The purpose of the advisory committee is to conduct a comprehensive study of school discipline policies, laws and regulations.
HR 540 also directs the advisory committee to hold public hearings as deemed necessary to conduct the comprehensive study. The legislation requires the Joint State Government Commission and the advisory committee to issue a report to the House Education Committee within six months of the adoption of the resolution.
Zupancic has served as a Canon-Mac school director since 2007, and currently serves on the Pennsylvania School Board Association’s governing board.
PSBA Executive Director Nathan Mains lauded the appointment.
“Zupancic's background and knowledge will be an asset to the advisory committee,” Mains said. “He will represent school directors well on this important task.”
NSIS Pairs Students with Reading Buddies
At North Strabane Intermediate School, the “Reading Buddies” program is about more than developing fluency – it’s about developing friendship, too.
Sixth-grade students at NSIS are participating this year in the program – one in which sixth-grade students are given the opportunity to read books to their reading buddies in the school’s Autism Support Classroom.
These sessions, which happen twice a week, include time spent reading and sharing the favorite books of all students involved.
Principal Dr. Mark Abbondanza lauded the “Reading Buddies” program, calling it a very nice opportunity for students.
Mrs. Mary Dombrowski, the sixth-grade reading teacher who helped spearhead the program, agreed.
“Although we are not sure who enjoys these reading sessions more, the students being read to or the readers themselves, everyone benefits from a new-found friendship and reading experience,” she said.
Band Composed of CM Students Wins Washington's Got Talent
Congratulations to No Interruption – a band composed of Canon-McMillan High School’s own Drew Sipos, Anthony Popovski, Matt Pukansky, and Carter Seroka – for winning the recent Washington’s Got Talent competition.
The band previously won CM’s Got Talent competition earlier this year.
Here’s a picture from the event:
