Students learn history while making race posters!

 St. Mary/St. Michael School, Derby

Booth Hill School, Shelton

Students at St. Mary/St. Michael School in Derby and Booth Hill School in Shelton have given the Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road Race a real boost with their art work while learning a bit about one of the Valley's greatest war heroes by combining art, history and community service. The students combined their new knowledge of Commodore Isaac Hull and his exploits as the commander of the USS Constitution with their artistic talents to create a series of posters promoting this year's race. Their handiwork will be on display in the Farmers Market on Canal Street during pre-registration sessions as well as on race day.

In appreciation for their efforts, each class will be treated to a pizza party. David M. Grant Caterers sponsors the party at St. Mary/St. Michael School while Tetley sponsors the Booth Hill School. David Grant is a graduate of St. Mary's School!
