Ryan Sheehan of Haddon Heights, a junior at Camden Catholic High School, Cherry Hill, helped out with auditions for local elementary school students vying for roles in the school’s fall play “Miracle on 34th Street.” The high school’s Performing Arts Department invited students from Camden, Gloucester and Burlington counties to audition for the play, running Dec. 4-6. Camden Catholic added a fall play to its performing arts schedule several years ago.

Students at Assumption School, Atco, recently raised money for the troops in Iraq. Colonel Steve Ferrari, 4th grader Cassie Tortu’s uncle, is the Commander of the 50th Infantry Brigade Combat Team. He and 3,000 other New Jersey soldiers were recently deployed to Iraq.
The students at Assumption School donated $2 each and wore red to school on Friday, Oct. 10, to show their support of the soldiers in Iraq. The total proceeds of $338 is being spent on care packages of various supplies to be sent to these soldiers in Iraq.
Cassie’s cousin, and Colonel Ferrari’s son, Private Steven Ferrari, visited Assumption School to speak to Cassie’s classmates about what it is like to go through training to be a soldier in Iraq.
Last year, Cassie’s third grade class at Assumption School, made cards in support of Private Ferrari’s boot camp training. Private Ferrari made the personal visit to thank the students for their encouragement and support.
Correction: A caption in the Oct. 31 Star Herald incorrectly identified the student Ambassador William J. Hughes for a story on United Nations Day, hosted by St. Joseph High School, Hammonton. The student pictured was Taylor Draddy.
