SOS - SOUP ON SATURDAY PROGRAM KICKS OFF THIS MONTH


In conjunction with Minisink Valley Kiwanis, our students, faculty, staff and administration will begin collecting cans of soup and boxes of soup mix to help feed the needy families in the district.  Each school and several of our student and community groups will take turns asking for donations of soup throughout the next several months, which Kiwanis will then distribute.  We know our students eat a balanced breakfast and lunch through our school programs on Monday through Friday, while they are in school. This new program, SOS or Soup on Saturday, will help ensure that they have something to eat on the weekends.  Each school and student group will use a variety of methods to elicit donations. For example, the intermediate school is having a movie night this Friday, January 16 at 6:30 PM in the intermediate school auditorium. Along with the $1.00 entrance fee, students are being asked to donate a can of soup, if at all possible. The intermediate band concert is Tuesday, January 20 at 7:00 PM. Although there is no admission charge, we will be collecting cans of soup at the door for all who would like to participate. This program is voluntary, but we hope that many of our families will be able to help. It is important that we continue to teach our children to care for those who may be less fortunate. Please watch this web site for additional ways that you and your children can contribute.
