On March 5th, 2014 students in grades 1-5 gathered outside of Tinicum school joined by the Tinicum Fire Company to celebrate Read Across America Day! Students were tasked with earning 500 expectation tickets for respect, responsibility and honesty during the month of February to earn this reward. We are proud to say that they blew that goal away by earning 786 tickets! Mr. Fanning dressed as the Cat in the Hat followed by Ms. Tozer and Ms. Farmer as Thing 1 and Thing 2 and read Green Eggs and Ham from the roof of Tinicum School! Great job!

Thank you from the art department,
The fifth annual Groundhog Day Family Festival was held at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Tinicum, but this is the third annual art contest. The Festival is sponsored by the Friends of the Heinz Refuge. This year there were 772 entries representing 27 schools. There were 667 entries from four counties in the very competitive Elementary School Division. Adriana Gaul (grade 5) came in first in the field of 667 entries. She was chosen by a panel of seven judges. The students' names, teachers, grades and schools were covered during the judging. The judges only saw the students' drawings. For her winning entry, Adriana received a cash prize of fifty dollars and a Refuge pin. A special certificate will also be awarded.
Two Tinicum students, Priyam Patel and Rachel Stachowicz, both eighth graders, were among the top fifteen finalists in the Middle School Division. Being among the top 15 out of a field of 105 is a significant accomplishment. Many of the middle schools that participated in the contest sent entries from only one or two of their top art students.
This is the second year in a row that a Tinicum student has won first place in the Groundhog Day Art Contest at the Refuge. When a volunteer from the Refuge was asked why Tinicum School did so well in the competition, Tinicum art teacher, John Mitch, said that Adriana is "an awesome drawer. She has a gift and she loves art." He also stated that Tinicum students "love their school." They also seem to have a great deal of pride in "their" refuge, the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum.
