Fourth-graders present their stories at bookstore By ZACK SHIVELY

Robinwood Lane Elementary’s fourth-grade classes had an author’s event at Barnes and Noble on June 4. The fourth-grade students of Doreen Miner and Janice Zorman wrote their own children’s stories and presented them at the store in the style of a typical author event. The area had space for all of the students to sit and speak and enough room for their families to sit and watch the event. “We wanted to share their work as authors,” said Miner, who created the event. She had previously taught sixth-grade students and had a speaking event at the store with those students. Twenty students presented during the event. Each child gave their name, the title of the book and a brief synopsis of the story. They then read a piece about themselves and a section of their story. Some of the students also included to whom they dedicated their work. After everyone presented, the students autographed a page for other students and families at the event. The teachers created the project with their intervention classes. They did not work on the book every day, but they spent an hour or so on them on days throughout the last grading period. They asked the students to come up with a story idea within five minutes. From there, the teachers spent time revising and reworking on the stories to help the children make them better. The students wrote the stories

Camp F.R.I.E.N.D. announced for summer The Autism Society of Mahoning Valley recently announce that it is bringing back and tripling its summer day camp options for children with special needs and their neurotypical friends. Dates include, July 30 until Aug. 3 (full camp and integrated camp for ages 3-22) and Aug. 13-17 (integrated camp for ages 6-13). Camp Friend is unique because the student-to-counselor ratio is extremely low and unmatched to address the intense needs of children and teens on the autism spectrum. As a result, every year interested applicants had to be turned away for lack of enough space. The addition of integrated camp will allow ASMV to serve more families by offering more camper spots. Integrated camp will provide the opportunity for higher-functioning individuals to attend a traditional day camp with our counselors there to assist as they have ideal chance to strengthen their social skills. Camp F.R.I.E.N.D.’s full camp will bring back a model of daily activities structured around social skill building themes to provide evidence based instructional opportunities in a fun setting. This, plus traditional summer camp activities like swimming, sports and crafts supported by an autism-qualified staff, provide a supported environment while ensuring an equitable experience. Camp costs $150 per student per week and numerous scholarships are available. Registration forms are available for download at http:// and can be mailed by request to ASMV at 330-333-9607.

In addition to food, St. John’s Greek festival included a gift store, guided tours throughout the building, music and an art display from local artist Stephen Valantasis.

St. John’s celebrates Greek tradition with festival By ZACK SHIVELY

St. John’s Greek Orthodox Church had their 42nd annual Greek Festival starting on May 24 and ending on May 27. The festival mostly revolves around food and treats while giving the community a chance to get together at the church. Members of the church helped make all the food by hand. “It’s a major fundraiser and we want to show off our Greek tradition,” said Greg Giannios, one

of the organizers for the event. He enjoyed that the festival took place inside and outside of the church, because it gave the community a chance to tour the church. Many of the food vendors were in tents outside during the event. They sold authentic Greek foods, such as a lamb dinner, pastistio and spanakopita. They had more food inside, including a pastry room where community members could buy all sorts of sweets, ranging from Giannios chocolate to Greek honey puffs called lou-

koumathes. They also had a dining hall and a room where visitors could watch the sweets being made. They set up a gift store in their library, where people could buy books, shirts, hats and other items. Artist Stephen Valantasis of Stephano’s Orthodox Byzantine Art displayed and sold his paintings and works in the pastry room as well. During the day, the church also gave tours to show others their religious artifacts and art. Each night, the community danced to Greek music.

but it had ended a while ago. The greenhouse at the school sat vacant for years until Burns asked Winkle to make the club. The students got to plant different fruits and vegetables and see them grow over the weeks of the club’s existence. They ate some of their plants; for example, they made salsa from the tomato plants. They wanted to raise money

during the sale to make their club more self-sufficient. In addition to a table of plants for sale, they also had a prize table where people could enter a raffle to win a planting growing inside of ruby slippers. The group consists of mostly third and fourth grade students, though it is open to all students at the school. They meet after school each day for an hour.
