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.

Fighting pediatric cancer ... together

Thursday, January 4, 2018 by The Press in School


Students from Freedom High School and Emmaus High School teamed up recently to help raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer. Both student sections observed “gold-outs” to support the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley. FHS and EHS both sold the “gold-out” shirts in school, as this is the main way to obtain donations and participate in this event. PCFLV helps cover all of the medical expenses for kids with cancer in the Lehigh Valley who are registered with them and also have fun little events for the kids throughout the year.
