Volume IX Issue VIII The OGDEN VALLEY NEWS Page 13 February 1, 2004 BROTHERS cont from page 12 His first assignment was to go to Shepard Air Base in Texas. LeMoyne considered it the most desolate area he’d ever seen. Beyond that, it had the worst drinking water he would ever taste. LeMoyne completed basic training at Shepard Air Base, which required taking Stanine tests to be selected for Air Crew Training. Lemoyne scored extra high in mathematics. The Air Force did not need as many pilots as had been planned because the U.S. could not deliver as many airplanes as had been prognosticated. Because of LeMoyne’s high Stanine scores, he was identified to go to navig a t i o n school. LeMoyne was then assigned to 17 air bases over the next 24 months. Prior to January of 1943, it only took nine months LeMoyne Hislop to complete training as a pilot or navigator. Because of the slowdown in aircraft production, it was 24 months before most of the group would complete their aircrew training. LeMoyne completed air navigation school at Ellington Air Base near Houston, Texas. He graduated as the Honor Graduate. Being the Honor Graduate, he was later offered a regular Army commission. Later, in 1947 when the Air Force was established as a separate military entity from the Army, Lemoyne transferred to the U.S. Air Force. It was considered an honor to be given a regular Air Force commission, especially with the first group of officers forming the new Air Force. After the war ended, and all the brothers ended up at their parents’ home on Christmas Eve 1945, LeMoyne received a lot of harassing from some of his brothers. Each and all of his brothers had served in combat during the war. The brothers always considered the war as starting on December 1941, and ending on that Christmas Eve in 1945 after they all had returned home. LeMoyne said, while he hadn’t serve overseas, he had spent much of his time in Texas. His brother Dean made the comment, “I’d have rather been overseas than to have served time in Texas!” LeMoyne responded by saying, “For all those two years I served in Texas, not one Japanese or German aircraft ever successfully penetrated the Texan Borders!” The crowning compliment of the Christmas Eve was when their father Henry put his arm around his wife Mable and said, “Our prayers have been answered; our boys all are home.” Mable Hislop then gave him a kiss on the cheek and said, “I forgive you for letting George enlist in the Navy so he could be in the war.” Six of the brothers went on to get married and raise families, becoming good citizens. Two of the brothers, George and LeMoyne, stayed and completed 20 years of military service. George retired in 1965 as a Chief Petty Officer E-8. During that time, he served at the Inchon landings in Korea, sailed up the Yangtze River, and then interfaced with the Chinese communists. He also served in the Vietnam War. He was there when supposedly a North Vietnamese patrol boat attacked a U.S. Destroyer that, according to President Lyndon B. Johnson, was why the Vietnamese conflict was escalated to where over 30,000 U.S. servicemen were killed. It is confirmed now that the whole incident was falsified. The Navy captain of the Destroyer was promoted to Rear Admiral and given a job in the Pentagon. LeMoyne went on to be recommended for two Distinguished Service medals. He became an expert in the application and use of space for military purposes. He was commended by the Undersecretary of Defense for work he completed in identifying some of the fallacies of using space for manned military activity. Henry and Mable Hislop’s eight sons all served their country. The subsequent peace lasted over the next two Hislop generations, which totaled over 44 grandsons and greatgrandsons, out of which only one served but a short stint in the military. Montessori Toddler Program: Beginning from “The Montessori Way: An Education For Life” By Tim Seldin and Paul Epstein, Ph.D. Montessori programs for children under age three are rare, but Ogden Valley Montessori School is starting one in September 2004. It will be offered for toddlers from ages 18 months to 3 years. Research clearly shows that the most important period in a human being’s educational and emotional development is not the years of high school and college, but rather the first six years of life. This is the time when children absorb everything in their environment, and a foundation can be laid for a secure and emotionally stable adulthood. The Montessori approach is a basic philosophy of nurturing the young child’s potential in an atmosphere of support, understanding, and respect using multi-sensory materials. In the past, many people pictured a child’s mind as a blank slate on which adults, through instruction, could “write down” the content of a good education. Likewise, another common metaphor was that of an empty bowl waiting to be filled with the contents of the school’s curriculum. Maria Montessori demonstrated that both concepts are inaccurate. The young child’s mind is more like that of an acute observer or scientist, eager to learn, explore, try new things, and master new skills. Most significantly, Maria Montessori recognized that with the right stimulation, the child’s ability to concentrate, absorb, and master new ideas and skills is enhanced. She also learned that the earlier we begin a program of intellectual, physical, sensory, and artistic education, the more dramatic the results. The early childhood years are a time of great sensitivity to language, spatial relationships, music, art, social graces, and so much more. If during this period the mind is stimulated by the child’s exposure to a rich environment, the brain will literally develop a much stronger and lasting ability to learn and accomplish. In short, while our culture may believe that preschool teachers are the least significant educators our children will encounter, in reality the contribution that they offer is of inestimable impor- tance in a child’s education. This is especially true of those who teach toddlers. The importance of the toddler age cannot be underestimated. Toddler Montessori educators are passionate about their work. They are specialists in their field while, at the same time, being warm, loving adults. The lead teacher for the Toddler class at Ogden Valley Montessori School will be Rebecca Harris of North Fork. An assistant will help her in a class with a ratio of one adult to six toddlers. Children do not need to be toilet-trained to be enrolled in the Toddler program. The focus of the Toddler classroom is on independence and self-awareness. Montessori Toddler teachers have an extensive list of activities and developmentally appropriate educational materials. Material must isolate one concept or skill at a time. The classroom is divided into four distinct areas: Practical Life In this area, daily living exercises such as pouring, sweeping, dusting, buttoning, zipping, and table setting are introduced. These provide opportunities for children to care for themselves and their environment. The exercises also help foster fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination. Sensorial This area of the classroom enables the child to explore and order objects in terms of size, color, shape, texture, sound, taste, and smell. Language At this age, there is a huge expansion into language. Toddlers learn language primarily related to their observations, but teachers also tell stories and sing songs, and there are special materials for more abstract vocabulary. Life Sciences This area of the curriculum exposes the child to the music, art, and movement of different countries throughout the world. Materials and activities are used that help the child develop coordination, balance, and strength during a time of life characterized by the need to explore everything. Lessons of grace and courtesy are also practiced daily to help toddlers learn to share things and be considerate of others. Although the classroom is divided into welldefined areas of learning, the layout is open to allow plenty of room for social interaction. The first few years of a child’s life are the most formative years. This is a period when children effortlessly absorb concepts and habits. It is also a time when roots for a love of learning are established. You are invited to help channel your child’s natural curiosity into positive learning experiences at Ogden Valley Montessori School. The Toddler class will start in September 2004; parents can choose between two or three mornings a week, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. The school also offers a Primary program for children ages 3 to 6, and an Elementary program for children ages 6 to 9, which will later extend up to age 12.
