With the focus this year on optimism, the school partnered with the Lions Club for its International Peace Poster contest. “Creating peace posters gives children everywhere the chance to express their visions of peace and inspire the world through art and creativity,” the website states. A North Star Academy parent suggested the peace poster contest idea after hearing about it from an acquaintance. While learning about empathy, students created personalized drawings of shoes decorated with facts about themselves that one would only know by spending a day in their shoes. K-5 students created 9×12-inch peace posters while middle school students in grades 6-8 created posters of varying sizes as required by the contest rules.

There was nothing LeBron James or Anthony Davis could do as Denver committed defensively in the second half, and the MVP did what he typically does. Nikola Jokic, whose Sombor Shuffle over Davis effectively ended the drama with 3:19 left, ended the night with 31 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists. The Nuggets suffocated the Lakers for just 17 points in the third quarter and blitzed them offensively with 32. When the Lakers sent a double-team at Jokic, he promptly flipped it to Aaron Gordon for a dunk. Brown paced the Nuggets with 16 points, and Jokic, playing more aggressive than he did against Portland, added 13 points, eight rebounds and four assists going into the break.1 month ago The Denver Post
PITTSBURGH — In what has become an annual ritual, Pittsburgh’s Jewish community Thursday honored the memory of the 11 Jews who were murdered on this date in the deadliest antisemitic attack in U.S. history. For many community leaders, their grief is mixed with dismay over the continued and growing incidents of antisemitism in the United States and beyond. Despite concerns over rising antisemitism, participants said afterward they were focused on remembering the victims and what they stood for in being martyred during worship. I feel rising in me the strong commitment to live a Jewish life.”Audrey Glickman, a survivor of the attack, agreed. “The Jewish community fears that after a handful of non-Jewish celebrities speak out with a generic statement about condemning antisemitism, we will never hear from them on the topic again,” she said.1 month ago The Denver Post
“I feel so good, for a lot of reasons,” Parks said after his New York Jets topped the Broncos 16-9 at Empower Field, sending his old team to London on a four-game losing skid. It’s business,” Parks continued. But in the meantime, I’m a New York Jet who just beat the Denver Broncos, where I used to play. “You’ve got so many guys that are in this league today that were a part of the Denver Broncos (recently),” Parks said. Transactions (said it).”The difference between all those one-score losses in Broncos Country and three one-score victories with the Jets this fall?1 month ago The Denver Post
In search of a little comic relief, the Broncos should sign 72-year-old Bill Murray to play quarterback. Every script written by coach Nathaniel Hackett is “Groundhog Day.”“I know it’s kind of a broken record,” Hackett said Sunday after the Broncos lost 16-9 to the New York Jets. The offense, with backup quarterback Brett Rypien playing the role of DisateRuss, blared “I Got You Babe” by Sonny and Cher on a continuous loop. Hackett is the architect of the most anemic scoring Broncos offense since 1966, when the team’s primary quarterback was the immortal Max Choboian, God rest his soul. We don’t give a “Ryp.” No matter who plays quarterback, the current coach of the Broncos can’t hack it.1 month ago The Denver Post
The situation: With two minutes left in the game, the Broncos trailed 16-9 and faced fourth-and-3 at the Jets’ 25-yard line. Melvin Gordon lined up to quarterback Brett Rypien’s right in the backfield. The play call: Dulcich and Jeudy ran intersecting routes right off the line, with Jeudy slanting in and Dulcich headed up the seam. Hamler ran what appeared to be a go route or a skinny post, and Sutton also ran a go route. On fourth-and-10 with 37 seconds left, Rypien’s downfield heave to KJ Hamler also fell incomplete.1 month ago The Denver Post
While mere mortal teammates slept during the long flight from Denver to London, DangeRuss said he worked on the plane, doing high knees and calisthenics in the aisle. Everyone was knocked out, I was doing high knees and working on my legs and everything else, making sure I’m ready to rock. But Wilson and his high knees are going to make this team buzzworthy, for reasons that will make the rest of the league snicker. But nobody in the league knows brand-building better than Wilson, as sunny as any QB for a last-place team can possibly be. Without hesitation, Wilson replied: “Winston Churchill.”Bonnie prince Russ is very different from you and me.1 month ago The Denver Post
