Go Blue for National Child Abuse Prevention Month

The last few weeks you may have noticed pinwheels in front of all the buildings throughout the District in recognition of National Child Abuse Prevention month.

We partnered with the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Centers "Go Blue 4 Kids" campaign. Students raised money for the pinwheels and the money they have donated to the advocacy center will be used right here in central New York for victims of child sexual and physical abuse.

Dr. Brown shared in his blog, " I applaud and appreciate the efforts of our Parent Teacher Associations/Organizations, as well as our students and staff." Thank you to everyone who participated!
