Team USA Sharon Heights School Parents Organization had very special "Astro Charlie" pins made by a master engraver and his son from Cape Cod to help the adults and kids celebrate with the Eaglets USA Teams last Friday during the NASA webcast event!
The first 100 pins arrived just in time for all to enjoy and proudly wear to school, as we were joined by our friends from Cottage St and East Elementary Schools.
Nearly 500 people were on hand to join in the fantastic celebration provided by the NASA folks at Houston Mission Control. Our marimba band performed live music at the end of the festivities. It was so much fun for all!
Thank You NASA!
Go Mission X!
The Sharon Eaglets of Heights Elementary School were treated to an out of this world jump rope demonstration this week by the Skippers Jump Rope Club of Mendon/Upton, Massachusetts!
The Skippers provided an inspirational morning for the Eaglets with a fine performance demonstrating various jump-roping skills that they have perfected.
We wish to thank the Heights PTO, Christine Horn and the Skippers for showing the Eaglets that hard work, training and exercise can be such an enjoyable and healthy experience for a lifetime!
Beginning with kindergarten classes, Team USA Sharon is preparing our future Mission X astronauts with mini astronaut training demonstration. Here Ms. D. demonstrates her dexterity with crew assembly procedures. Nice work!
The Sharon Middle School Marimba band and Team USA, Sharon Massachusetts would like to dedicate the song,"The Gift of Gravity" by Walt Hampton to all participating members world-wide of Mission X 2012 and the crew of the International Space Station. This is the bands' second song recorded for Mission X, as once again Team USA sends Best Wishes to all of our new friends from around the world.
We hope that you enjoy our music as much as we have enjoyed all of the Mission X activities and sharing in this fantastic program with all of you!
