Just as a reminder, Veterans Day is this Saturday. I would like to take a moment to thank all of our Veterans for their service to this country. Their sacrifice makes what we all do on a day to day basis possible. Schools will be observing the holiday on Friday, so there is no school on Friday. Enjoy the long weekend!
Operation Santa 5K and The Tony Luciano Run
The Operation Santa 5K and The Tony Luciano Run will be held on Sunday, November 12, 2023 at 10 a.m. at the Hudson Falls High School Franklin Street entrance. If you are interested in participating in the races, there is still time to sign up here. All proceeds from the race and our sponsors will go towards Operation Santa and HF Rotary Scholarships for students in our district. For spectators, vendors from Adirondack Seafood and Coach’s Corner will join us to sell food and refreshments.
There will be concessions in the cafeteria selling coffee, Gatorade, and baked items to benefit Adam Wells. Now in the 7th grade, Adam was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy Duchennes disease when he was 6 years old. Adam, his family, and his teachers will be at the stand, and the proceeds will go towards a wheelchair accessible van for the family.
