In recent weeks, local superintendents have been challenging each other to purchase ten gallons of milk from Stewart’s stores in their school district and donate the milk to food pantries in their community.
Superintendent Stratton joined in on the fun and visited a local Stewart’s Shop on Monday, February 4, after being challenged by South Glens Falls Superintendent Kristine Orr.
Supt. Stratton purchased 10 gallons of milk, and was given an eleventh gallon free as a part of Stewart’s milk club, to donate to the local food pantry Corinth Community Cupboard.
“This is a great opportunity to give back to the Corinth community,” said Supt. Stratton. “But it is also creating wonderful camaraderie among the local district’s by having us come together for a purpose.”
Now he is passing on the challenge to Warrensburg Central School District Superintendent John Goralski and Indian Lake Central School Superintendent David Snide.
WSWHE BOCES has encouraged all 31 district superintendents to get involved. If all participate, BOCES District Superintendent James Dexter will donate 20 gallons of milk to the Fort Edward Community Food Pantry.
Way to go, Supt. Stratton! Thank you for all you do for our students and the community!
