Soaring Heights School students in State College supported Comfort Cases in the spirit of Christmas.
Comfort Cases is a national organization that aims to give each child in foster care a book bag or overnight bag filled with toiletries, a change of clothes and other items needed to move to a new home.
Students donated money and items in conjunction with Northwest Bank in Bellefonte, PA so children in need received Comfort Cases in time for the holiday season. Students raised funds, shopped for, packed items, and delivered them to the Northwest Bank in Bellefonte, PA.

Soaring Heights School students visited the Pennsylvania Military Museum in Boalsburg, PA on Friday, December 6, 2019 for a remembrance of the lost sailors, soldiers and Marines during the attack on Pearl Harbor Naval base and surrounding military installations on December 7, 1941. This attack forced the United States into the second World War.
Students and faculty visited the Battleship Pennsylvania 14-inch guns memorial outside on the ground of the museum and learned that the 14-inch guns displayed were not on the Battleship Pennsylvania and had been switched out with new guns prior to the attack. These displayed guns were on the island though as the attack commenced. The Battleship Pennsylvania was damaged during the attack but was repaired and later participated in at least seven battles during the Second World War.
