New Year’s Eve Family Celebration
Kids may not always be able to stay up late to see it arrive but they still love to welcome the New Year! Ring in 2013 with the whole family at Phipps and participate in an early countdown at 8:45 p.m. - all before youngsters head off to bed.
The New Kensington-Arnold School District agreed to a mediator's judgement and removed a 6-foot high Ten Commandments monument from outside Valley high school gymnasium, paying $164,000 in legal fees to settle a 2012 lawsuit filed by a girl and her atheist mother. Freedom from Religion Foundation applauded the decision saying it should have never gone to court. The girl was not a student but found the object offensive when attending recreational events or when dropping her sister off at school.
Do you agree with State Senator Eichelberger comments about students who graduate from urban public school systems?
