Christmas trees collected on second collection day

Now that the holidays are all behind us, January is in full swing! We have officially taken down all signs of Christmas at my house and it makes things just a tad less stressful for me personally.

That being said, Christmas trees will be collected during January on the second collection night with garbage pickup. Trees over 10 feet tall are requested to be cut in half, or you may just find them still on your curb.

There is a school board meeting scheduled 7:30 p.m. Jan. 16 in the administration building.

Jingle Jam Christmas Dance Dec. 15

Giving Tuesday, a day of charity to kick off the holiday season, was very successful at Allentown Central Catholic High School. The school’s donors raised $3,200 Nov. 27, more than double the total contributions from 2017.

The beginning coding class traveled to St. Joseph the Worker Nov. 29 to demonstrate “Sparki,” a robot the class has been constructing. Sparki has the ability to draw, sense an incline and navigate around a surface’s edge. It was displayed to the sixth grade students at St. Joe’s, who greatly enjoyed the presentation.
