For the fifth consecutive year, Eleanor Roosevelt Elementary School students from pre-K through fourth grade piled outside to cheer on fifth graders competing in a flag football tournament during the Super Duper Bowl V on January 30th.
This event, always the Friday before the NFL Super Bowl, has become “like a rite of passage to our fifth graders who come out and watch this tournament year after year, knowing their day will come,” said PTO co-president, Colleen DiMario.
Each of the young men, who are all students at Pennsbury High School, earned at least 21 merit badges, served as leaders within their Troop and completed an Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project to benefit others in their community in order to achieve the highest rank in Scouting.

Mayor Djouha actually lived in America for 20 years and still has family in Maryland, so he frequently comes to the US. He was enamored of Morrisville and its amazing history and looks forward to returning soon, perhaps to host a discussion at the high school.
