Family Fun and Food Day set for Oct. 15
HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. — The community is invited to attend the free Family Fun and Food Day on Monday, Oct. 15, from 2 to 7 p.m., at Hoosick Falls Central School. The event will take place rain or shine.
The day will feature an assortment of tasty food, a raffle, and family-friendly activities such as mini-pumpkin painting, creating beaded bracelets, supervised nature walks, rock painting, knitting, and a chance to try out yoga, tai chi, archery, or other physical activities. There will be games to play and representatives of each school club will be there to share a little about each club. Families can have a family photo portrait taken and, as an added bonus, they can meet and interact with HFCS' therapy dog Pride and some of the horses used in the equine learning program.
Parents of students should note that Oct. 15, is a superintendent's conference day, and that students will not have school on that day.
"We wanted to have this event so that our community can get to know the staff members at HFCS a little better, to see what their interests are, and how we share them with our students," said Jennifer McDonald, a high school social studies teacher. "Family Fun and Food Day comes out of our desire to connect with the parents of our students and the entire HFCS community."
