Is it possible that learning math – and practicing it – can be fun? Teachers at Seven Sorrows BVM School recently showed students and their parents how much fun it can be with games and puzzles – and s’mores, that gooey, melty marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker treat.

It was all part of the school’s “S’mores Winter Wonderland Math Night,’’ an evening of math and mirth capped by a s’mores treat.

MAHS to hold 'Raiders Run for a Cure'

 

If you like to run – or just walk – here’s how to turn your fleet feet into cash to support a good cause.

On Saturday, Nov. 15, a 5-kilometer “Raiders Run for a Cure” to raise money for the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital will be held at Middletown Area High School. The event will also include a Mile Fun Run.

All proceeds from both events will go toward the Middletown Area High School Mini-THON, which benefits the Four Diamonds Fund at the children’s hospital.

The 5K will start at the high school at 8:30 a.m. Walkers will start at 8:45 a.m.

The Mile Fun Run will start at the high school track at about 9:30 a.m. All students who take part in the Fun Run will get medals and goody bags.

You can register now online by going to raiderweb.org or register the day of the event.

The Mini-THON is a smaller version of Penn State’s THON, which also supports the Four Diamonds Fund. Considered the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, THON has raised more than $114 million since 1977.

Middletown Area’s Mini-THON raised $16,720 last May.
