NYS Mentoring Program: Bernie McCann and representatives Susan Murante and Brad DiPietro from the NYS Mentoring Program explained that they are coming to our North Warren Community and they’re looking for adults to mentor 7th and 8th graders in our district. You would be ‘a friend’ who has a positive influence on these children, meeting with them for an hour a week at the school. Anyone interested should contact Bernie McCann at North Warren School.
YMCA coming to North Warren: Brandon explained that Suzie Q’s will be now a YMCA outreach expanding its “No More Learning Gap” summer program from the city to include North Warren. They be providing the program so first- and second-graders can improve their reading level. Students can lose up to three months of their reading level during the summer, and that does not help at-risk kids, so this can help. Students are being identified by the school districts and the cost will be offset by a state reimbursement program and help from two pairs of donors, Bill and Lisa Powers and Jim and Susan Himoff. This will give children a chance to have a day-camp experience, and they will get to go on a trip every week for the six-week session. Contact Bernie McCann for more information.
Carol Theatre: Good to go with lots of great entertainment planned for this summer. See attached flyer for this year’s schedule
