Glen Hill Post 287 family helps Beach Elementary


N-Glen-Hill-Post-Dictionary-Presentation-March-12-2014

by LoraLee Nauta

 

The American Legion, Sons of The American Legion and the Auxiliary teamed together to purchase dictionaries for every third grade student. We all felt it was important to give back to our community and our students. They are the future of our country, and we wanted to help anyway we can as an American Legion Family. We delivered approximately 262 books to the Beach Elementary on Wednesday, March 13, 2014.

Mr. Ken See, the principle, was very happy to have this donation. Along with Mr. See, we had 10 students: Eli Malon, Leah Ramsey, Aricia Tompkins, Brady Mason (who is also a Squadron 287 member), Darrien Kolk, Molly Bentley, MacKayla Cazier, Haley Castle (Auxiliary 287 junior), Taylee Self, and Bryce Skelonce. We also had members of our Glen Hill Post Family with us: MaryAnne Yuncker, Past Department President & Unit Education Chairmen; Post Commander Bill Gregones; Keith Tyler, Squadron 287 member and Department Children & Youth Committeeman; and LoraLee Nauta, Auxiliary President.

This book is not only a dictionary, it has the Periodic Table, details about the American Flag, the United States Constitution, a section on all the United States Presidents, the fifty states, plus several more items. We were honored to present these books to the students.

It’s important to the Glen Hill Family to give back to our community and our schools. The Glen Hill Post family is very involved with the veterans, but also many other programs. Education is one of our programs we feel strongly about. These students are the future, and these books should help the students with their studies and give them information that will help guide them.

First catch


OUT-Ruffed-grouseAxel Anderson, 8, got his first hunting license this year, and this ruffed grouse is his first catch. The Beach Elementary student shot it in October, while on vacation in Sundell, MI (in the Upper peninsula) at his family’s homestead.

Congratulations, Axel!

The Cedar Springs High School FFA group gave second-graders at Beach Elementary a harvest time treat Wednesday. Classes were taken on a hayride to the nearby Middle School, and allowed to go through the corn maze the high school students created to the north of the school. They also had the opportunity to pet and feed some farm animals—cows, a goat with a seemingly bottomless stomach, chickens and rabbits. The kids loved getting up close and personal with animals.

When they left, each student was given a goody bag with milk, an apple, and coloring sheets to help them remember the special day.

Feeding the animals was a prized activity. Post photo by J. Reed.

Beach picnic basket


By Pastor Darryl Miller

Four years ago, Robin DeLine saw something that she knew wasn’t right. Some of the children at Beach Elementary school were not getting supper. When they left the school, they would not eat another meal until the next day. So she started the Beach Picnic Basket program. Now Robin and a couple of volunteers make and distribute 100 meals a day to students from pre-school to high school seniors. The program is run solely on donations, and more requests are expected as the school year continues.

“We are always in need of volunteers to help make sandwiches and pack the meals,” said Wendy Conely, a volunteer who has been with the program since it’s beginning. Their motto is: “No child in Cedar Springs Public School will go to bed hungry.”

Would you be willing to help? You can contact Robin at the school at 696-0350. Items needed are: peanut butter, jam, fruitcups or puddings, individually wrapped items (granola bars, fruit snack, cookies, etc.), any fresh fruit, bread, Ziplock sandwich and brown lunch bags, and juice pouches. Monetary donations are also welcome, because they are also fortunate enough to be able to purchase items at a reduced price from Feeding America and the North Kent Community Services.

Brownies with the Band


On a very warm Friday afternoon in September,  third graders from Beach Elementary walked to the high school football field where they all watched the Red Hawk Band perform their halftime program.  After the performance, the third graders were able to ask questions and just generally interact with the band members on the field.  The experience was made even better with the brownies that the Band Boosters provided.  It was a great experience for all!  A special thank you to the high school band and the Band Boosters for making this great time possible!
