Of all of the dinosaur designs generated by students of O'Hara Elementary, one stood out in the eyes of the DinoMite Days jury committee.  That design, created by fifth-grader Madeline Docimo, won the school one of three dinosaurs given away to public schools in the region.  O'Hara's design depicts the dinosaur covered in the flurry of paper with which any student can identify on a daily basis.  Math, scienceI've been adopted!, language arts, foreign languages, music, art and social studies are all part of the daily lives of these students.
