Derry Area School District hosts January One Room School Event

Nineteen students from grades 2, 3, 5 and 8 and four helpers from Derry Area High School participated in an Atlantic No. 40 One Room School Event on Jan. 8. Taking part were Brook Stayduhar, Alexander Grohal, Jonathan Clark, Dane Marts, Antonio Foster, (second row) Cameron Miller, Lucas Grohal, Luke McDonald, Jazlyn Arnold, Logan Nolan, (third row) Xavier Bowman, Nina Smiley, Julee Blasko, (fourth row) Phoenix Barnhart, Aspen Blystone, Rylie Siko, Kylie Bonadies, Cameron McCune, Allee Keenan, (fifth row) Aidan Yates, Tamra Schissler, Amber Platt, Cydney Wierzbowski, and teachers Jennifer Zinkham and Karen Kerin. Students explored pictures to discover how students and teachers dressed in the one-room school days, they read an article about life in a one-room school comparing today to the 1900s, and they held an artifact gallery walk. Their art project included measuring and drawing a one-room school with glued buttons as decorations and they participated in a quilt-design activity.
