The holiday break from school is extra-long this year, due to Christmas falling a Wednesday. The school vacation is a record 16 days off, and if you are like many parents or caregivers you are most likely at your wits’ end right about now.
Warrensburg Central School’s athletic department sent homework home with your student. It is a little sheet of cute activities your child can do at home and if children complete the form and send it back in, they will receive a prize when they return to school.
The requirement for a prize is being active for 30 minutes per day for 12 of the 16 days of vacation.
If you didn’t receive a copy of this in your child’s book bag give me a call or email me and I’d be happy to send a copy to you.
Chiropractor aids hospice agency
Jonathan Gerber and his staff initiated a fundraiser for High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care by accepting donations in exchange for recycled grocery bags. The gesture raised $72 for hospice and will assist the non-profit in reaching its year-end fundraising goals.
