Contributed Story
ROSCOE — Despite the winter weather, the recent second Project Blue at Roscoe Central School was a success.
The Roscoe Achievement Program (RAP) Committee would like thank the students, school employees and community for their generous donations. One hundred percent of those donations help support the activity days that are organized each year.
For our first activity day, the RAP Committee took 59 students for pizza and bowling at the Callicoon Lanes. For our second trip, we have 60 students eligible and we are going to have pizza and play Monster (miniature) Golf in Middletown.
The RAP Committee would also like to thank the school employees and seniors who were the inspiration in our fundraiser: Ms. Barnewall (Physical Education and Health Teacher), Mrs. Mangus (Principal), Ms. Rosen (Science Teacher), Ethan Darbee (Senior), Katelyn Horton (Senior) and John Lundeen (Senior). Anyone willing to dye their hair blue for a fundraiser is a truly special person.
The Committee gives an extra “Thank You” to Ms. Rosen and John Lundeen, the participants who received the most votes. We love that you are willing to show your school spirit with your hair!
The RAP Committee is planning at least two more fundraisers before the year is out – its annual Spring Chicken BBQ and something new.
The committee members look forward to your continued support of our efforts to motivate the children in our school.
