Wanted to let you, and all other newspaper students, know what a great job you do. I picked up the Feb. 5 issue today [Feb. 26] at my hairdresser’s shop, State Street Style.
My great-granddaughters go to Hawlemont Regional School and I didn’t know Mr. Yagodzinski left [as principal] and Mr. Kermenski came. Now I know.
I enjoyed reading about “Pants” [“Pants is on the case to help kids read,” Features]; Emily Schoelzel building and repairing canoes [“All of our boats are handmade…” Cool Careers]; Pam Snow and teaching environmental matters [“Teaching the teachers: Pam Snow helps bring science education to life,” Magazine]; and the valentine-making for seniors, to name a few.
Last fall, Brooke Looman and Joy Bohonowicz did an interview with Holly Mae (Brown), my granddaughter, a senior at Mohawk. [“Charlemont’s Holly Mae Brown is going places,” Features, Nov. 20, 2014]. Nice piece.
Kylie Lowell is correct to want field hockey and volleyball at BSE. [Editorial, Feb. 5.] However, it’s time and money, and an adult who would volunteer. Last year, while watching field hockey, [I heard] the coach tell the adults there to cheer for “our kids,” that “the opposing team is tough. They start in the lower grades to learn field hockey.”
[…] Adults need to know about good things teens and younger people do with their time.
