Elwood-John H. Glenn High School freshmen Bella Ronai and Samantha Siegler, both cadets in Girl Scout Troop 2597, were recognized at the Elwood School District Board of Education’s Aug. 31 meeting.
For their Girl Scouts Silver Award project, the pair developed – with guidance from Harley Avenue Primary School Principal Dr. Denise Toscano – a web page and video for younger students that will help foster a love of learning and playing musical instruments. Ronai and Siegler also donated eight picture books about music and musicians to the Harley Avenue library.
“It’s a lot of hard work that goes into doing a website, and preparation for a Silver Award takes time and effort, a plan and execution,” Board of Education President James Tomeo said. “Awesome job!”
Interim Superintendent Kelly Fallon also congratulated the two freshman Scouts, and noted that the district was ready and excited for the start of classes next week, saying, “We look forward to welcoming all of our students and families back to our facilities, and we are looking forward to a great school year.”
