The annual Rock-a-Thon was held Jan. 12 at Eyer Middle School where students rock for 12 hours at the school and raise money for the Justin W. Jennings Foundation.

This year’s amount, once again, set a record – $25,469.01 was given to the foundation which helps operate a house in Bethany Beach, Del. for families who face stress and hardship when dealing with cancer. The Jennings Foundation has provided a place for family fun and relaxation for several families in the Lehigh Valley.

Charter Arts skaters practice for the big show

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 by DOUGLAS GRAVES in School

About 20 graceful ice skaters from The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts participated in the annual winter ice show for the community at Steel Ice Center recently. The Press was present for the dress rehearsal.

Thom Mullins, the high school’s artistic director of figure skating, coached the skaters through their routines on one of the two ice rinks at the Steel Ice Center. Mullins was appropriately bundled up in the cold arena; the skaters, on the other hand, wore costumes suggesting warmer temperatures as many had bare arms and heads, wore tights and big smiles.
