Field Trip to Everhart Museum in Scranton Field Trip to Everhart Museum in Scranton
 Mr. Lukachinsky and Mrs. Grebeck took some of their students to Everhart Museum in Scranton to allow them to experience another form of art in our local area.  This trip was a transition field trip that included community access and learning about what types of jobs are available in a museum.  The students learned to appreciate art while they did an activity expressing how different pieces of art make them feel.  They explored the museum while being respectful of the rules of the museum.

Taylor Lending a helping hand
You could say Noah Taylor, a 16-year-old Boy Scout working toward the rank of Eagle, inherited his giving spirit. As a little kid, he’d tag along when his grandfather, Ronald Mika, delivered donations of food and clothing to Ruth’s Place, a shelter for women in Wilkes-Barre.

“He told me they might not have a family, or sometimes their husbands are mean to them,” Taylor said Saturday afternoon, recalling the simple explanation his grandfather offered as to why a woman might need shelter. “I knew I would hate it if something like that happened to my mom.”

“It was always in the back of my mind that I wanted to do this for my Eagle Scout project,” he said as about a dozen of his fellow athletes from GAR High School and fellow Scouts from Troop 43, which is sponsored by St. Nicholas Church in Wilkes-Barre, helped carry paper products, slippers, socks, non-perishable food, bottled water and other donated items into Ruth’s Place.
