To celebrate, Principal Frank Golburn dressed like a turkey.
The Cinnaminson Middle School students and staff continued with their plan to “Take a Stand…Lend a Hand, last week for their annual Soup-er Bowl Challenge.

For Eagles fans, picking a team to cheer for Sunday could be a choice between the lesser of two evils.
No matter where you look, you can’t escape the Super Bowl coverage. The food! The commercials! The … teams? We feel your pain, Eagles fans.
