Mr. Cummings was treated to a rare opportunity as he was flown over the Swan and Flathead Valleys in a Blackhawk helicopter and off the tail of a Chinook helicopter by Montana’s National Guard and military reserve personnel.
The Boss Lift is sponsored by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (E.S.G.R.), a Department of Defense office dedicated to fostering a culture of support and value for military service members in the private sector.
Each year Jim Darcy Elementary honors military family members with their annual Veterans’ Day celebration.
After going through 30 large cans of whip cream, it might be awhile before Mr. Cummings eats another pie. Students and community members paid $1.00 to throw a pie in his face during the Carnival Classic held on Sunday, September 13th at Memorial Park. Jim Darcy also sponsored a photo booth with costumes for students to dress-up. In all, Jim Darcy raised nearly $200.

Field Day stands out as “one of the best school days ever” for our K-5 students. The morning is dedicated to fun, sportsmanship, and participation as students rotate through 15 different activities. Girls and boys compete in sack races, tug of war, and hurdles; they practice their skills in kicking a football, hitting a baseball, and shooting free throws; and they just plain have fun using the hula hoops, frisbees, and jump ropes. Enjoy browsing through the snapshots from Field Day 2015.
