Our American Voice is a group of students at Arcola Junior High that learns about civics and government, but most importantly, the students work hard to take an active part in making our community a better place. Each year, Arcola OAV creates an action project to give back to their school and community. This year, the students have decided to host a “senior” prom for the senior citizens in Arcola. The intended goal of the project is to encourage and develop friendships between Arcola students and senior citizens. This event will also kick of a summer of OAV involvement at Carriage Crossing, as the OAV members plan to visit the facility weekly to play games, participate in other activities, or just spend time talking with Carriage Crossing residents. This "senior" prom event will be held at Carriage Crossing on Saturday, April 28 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m and will be open to the public as well. Community members are invited to attend to enjoy a fun time of music, refreshments, and good company of both seniors and students. The prom's theme is "Past Meets Present."

Parent update #2, I just got off the phone with Southwest Airlines. As of now, our flight is on time as scheduled. To clarify the weather conditions we're looking at for NYC & Newark tomorrow: - Precipitation 1-2", mainly rain - Temps in the 30s and 40s - Winds around 25mph with gusts 40-50mph The precipitation forecast is not the issue; it's the wind gusts that might cause cancellations. The Southwest agent suggested we wait until the morning and call back to see how the flights are looking. She did not seem to think cancellations were imminent. If the weather looks like it might lead to cancellations, we will try to get an earlier flight. The main thing for you to know is that we are south of where the Nor'easter is going to cause the most problems, like in Boston. I will update you in the morning. I am optimistic that we will be able to stick to our schedule. Meanwhile, we are getting ready to head to dinner in Times Square at Carmine's (Italian, family style dining). The kids have mentioned more than once they are loving the food here! - Miss Coombe

Parents, I know some of you have heard that there is a winter storm heading our way out here in NYC. That is true. Right now I am on hold with Southwest Airlines, with the goal of finding out our options for our flight tomorrow. Worst case scenario: We don't get to fly home until Saturday. Best case scenario: We get out as scheduled on our 6:40pm flight. Somewhere in the middle: We fly out earlier than planned tomorrow. I will let you know as soon as I have more information. Meanwhile, there is absolutely nothing to worry about. Southwest would not allow us to take off if the weather is too bad to fly. We've had another great day; I'll post photos as soon as I can (my phone is currently busy on hold). If we stick with our current flight plan, we will go to the 9/11 Museum in the morning, and revisit some places around Times Square and Bryant Park the kids want to hit one more time before we leave. Again, when I have news, I will let you know. Meanwhile... please do not worry! Sometimes the weather throws a kink in the plans. We'll roll with it and figure it out! - Miss Coombe

Our neighbors from the north have challenged us to see who sells the most Cola War plates. Since ours is purple and has 4 state title years on it, surely we'll sell more than they will. The winning town will be awarded a trophy at halftime of the game. Sales run thru March 3rd, so its time to get your order placed.
