Miss Caitlin's E1 Class is looking to raise $300 through 'Alex's Lemonade Stand' in memory of Anjeahlina Mann, the sister of one of her students who passed to child cancer in 2011. They surpassed it by raising over $600! Way to go!

Miss Caitlin’s E1 Class is looking to raise $300 through ‘Alex’s Lemonade Stand’ in memory of Anjeahlina Mann, the sister of one of her students who passed to child cancer in 2011.

3rd and 4th Grade Students to host Lemonade Stand with all proceeds going towards combating childhood cancers.

Ms. Caitlin’s class is hosting its 3rd Annual “Alex’s Lemonade Stand” on the same day from 12:00pm – 3:00pm to help combat childhood cancers. Ms. Caitlin believes that, “a big part of teaching children is to provide opportunities for them to give back as a very important life lesson.”  This year, the group hopes to raise $300.00.

The community can also make a donation to their goal by visiting the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation site.

GW Elementary Student Grads Return to Volunteer for TOPS After School Program

The GW Elementary School, a Montessori program in Kingston, NY, is proud of its graduates – and it is always a treat when they return for a visit.

Here, we wish to highlight those who volunteer their time after full days of Middle School to work with the children who participate in our after school TOPS program.

Great job, and thank you!
