Achieving book fair goals at two Northern York County School District elementary schools resulted in entertainment for students, fueling their desire to read.

At Wellsville Elementary, students poured green slime on Principal Steve Lehman at the end of a school day so he could transform into The Hulk at that evening’s Family Fun Night festivities.

Wellsville’s book fair grossed more than $5,000 in sales with $3,100 in scholastic funds for library purchases.

Envirothon students tour first York County LEED project

The fifth grade Envirothon teams from Dillsburg and Wellsville elementary schools recently toured the first LEED registered commercial retail project in York County, the First Capital Federal Credit Union.

The tour was conducted by the CEO, Dennis Flickinger. In the parking lot students saw bike racks and special parking for energy efficient cars. In the basement they observed how the rain water capture system filters and reuses the water for flush toilets and irrigates the landscape. The lobby had special “solartube” skylights as well as wall coverings made from sunflower and wheat stocks. This tour helped the students learn about alternative energy, which worked in well with the current events part of Envirothon.

From left, first row, Angelica Sharp, Ashley Hannon, Gracen Smacher, Mady Clark, Taylor Heckman and Carlee Kubistek, and back row, coach Susan Hoover, Cora Bubb, Zach Hoover, Eythan Mealey, Aric Mealey and First Capital CEO Dennis Flickinger.
