Greencastle-Antrim school briefs

December 12, 2008

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Eighth-grade students from the Greencastle-Antrim Middle School recently raised more than $1,475 to help area animal shelters as a part of their annual Make A Difference Day activities.

The Antietam Humane Society in Waynesboro, Pa., and the Washington County Humane Society near Maugansville each shared the proceeds that the students raised through a skate-a-thon event. Over the course of a week, students collected sponsors and raised $1,477. In addition to the funds raised, additional items the animal shelters needed such as treats, toys and blankets were collected.

Hosting the skate-a-thon was Cosmic Skate in Waynesboro. The Greencastle-Antrim School District contributed the transportation.

  • Greencastle resident and first-time author Jessica Enderlin shared her children's book with students in kindergarten through second grade at the Greencastle-Antrim Primary School.

    Enderlin read her book, "Is There A Snuggle-Bug in Here?" to the students as a part of an assembly during which students learned about the writing process and, led by Enderlin, created their own stories.

The children's book, the first book of the "Bug" series, bounces along with rhyming playfulness as the main character, a bunny named Meggie, is put to bed for the night. Enderlin's book was released on Father's Day this past June and she has been busy attending promotional book signings throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia.

Enderlin is the parent of a first-grader at the G-A Primary School who shares Meggie's fondness for avoiding bedtime. In addition, she is a substitute for the Greencastle-Antrim School District and assists her husband in their family business.
