Student Posters Teach History & Civics
One of the great community features of the Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road Race is its annual effort to involve local schools in producing posters that feature the race and its ties to Commodore Hull. For the students, its an opportunity to combine a lesson in history and civics at the same time. Not only are they learning about one of the greatest naval heroes in U.S. history, but they are also learning about the value of giving back to the community. Their posters will be on display at the Farmers Market during the course of packet pick-ups and again on race day. Following the race, the posters are presented to race sponsors in appreciation for their support of the race.
The students are also rewarded with a pizza party for their hard work thanks to our sponsors. Last year's poster sponsors were David M. Grant Caterers, Valley Roofing and Siding, and Drs. Dworkin, Stein & Lerman Dental Group. Posters were prepared by Elizabeth Shelton School (Miss Garbutt, teacher) Booth Hill School (Mrs. Moore, teacher), St. Mary-St. Michael (Mrs. Vernazza, teacher) Bradley School - 3 classes (Mr. Foley/Mrs. Piccolo/Mrs. Andrews, teachers).
