3rd graders pose with donationsThe entire third grade class at Schuylerville Elementary School helped make a donation to the Schuylerville Area Food and Emergency Relief (SAFER) and the Schuylerville Blessings box in December. The students were encouraged to bring in donations in lieu of a student gift exchange and/or teacher gifts for the holidays.

“The activity is part of teaching compassion to our third graders and helping those in need for the holidays,” said teacher RuthAnn Thivierge.
