Thanksgiving Day games offer interesting conundrum

November 26, 2010

t this time of the year, many college and high school football teams compete against traditional Thanksgiving opponents. We call them rivalry games, contests that are played for “bragging rights” and even, in rare cases, for league championships.
The advent of playoffs has diminished these games over the years. In college ball, radical reformers want to take it one step farther, creating a national championship for Division I teams that would completely dilute the meaning of bowl games while also extending the season deep into January or even into the first weekend of February.

SHOW & TELL - Culture Day focuses on students’ ethnic backgrounds

November 26, 2010

WOONSOCKET – Sometimes school work can be fun. Especially if that school work is a project that allows students to tell about their family history and ethnic backgrounds.
Ousamequin Martinez, a middle school sixth grader, found that out while working on his cluster’s Culture Day Exhibit at the Villa Nova Street building.
Students could complete an essay as part of their project assignment or work on preparing a meal item that members of their family would have offered in their ethnic homeland.
