Hearts for Clara Ray
The CES Student Council raised $2562 this to help an area family pay the medical bills for their baby daughter, Clara Ray Morton, who has a congenital heart defect. This was the largest fundraiser the CES Student Council has ever sponsored. They would like to thank everyone who donated and helped raise awareness to make this fundraiser such a success. As Clara Ray’s parents, Johanna and Craig Morton, both said, "The awareness of the congenital heart defects and the heterotaxy are so important." Pictured here, fifth graders Emily and Chase Allen present the Mortons with the money that was raised. Learn more...
An annual tradition of the Catskill High School Music Department is to spread some holiday cheer around Catskill with a caroling trip. Over thirty chorus and band students participated this year. They visited Greene Meadows nursing and rehabilitation center, The Elliot senior living center, The Pines nursing and rehabilitation center, Catskill Elementary School, the Washington Irving Senior Center, Catskill Library, and caroled the streets and stores of Main Street as well, before finishing up their tour at Catskill Middle School and their High School. It was a great day of caroling that brought holiday fun and a lot of smiles to folks faces all over our community.
Santa's Helpers Carry On Tradition of Giving
In a season filled with hope and joy it is comforting to know that the holiday spirit lives on in the community of Catskill. About one-hundred Catskill High School students participated in their school’s annual Santa’s Helpers fundraising campaign during early December and ended up collecting $8,480 to help feed families in need within the Catskill Central School District. With the money the students raised, they were able to provide sixty local families with over a week’s worth of groceries each. The CHS Student Government, who organizes this event, would like to thank everyone in our community who helped make this year's campaign a meaningful success. Learn more...
