Class of 2015 extends a "thank you"

Class of 2015The Fort Plain Class of 2015 would like to extend their gratitude to Al and Linda Wainwright for a generous donation.

It was a year ago at a class fundraiser when “Big Al” approached class advisors Melanie Pombrio and Sue Summerfield about working together to benefit the students in the class of 2015. Al and Linda have been hosting classic car shows throughout the area for over a decade and through a mutual contact, Diane Empie, the couple asked if the class would be interested in helping at some of their events and in return Al and Linda would donate the proceeds from their functions.

It was a huge surprise when a year later, at the pancake breakfast fundraiser where the first connection was made, when Al and Linda presented a check for $1,000.00 to the class of 2015. Class advisors, class officers, student council representatives and members of the class of 2015 were there to receive the generous donation. The class of 2015 has decided to use this donation to purchase sweatshirts for the class members and would again like to say “thank You” to Al and Linda for making this possible.

Is your emergency contact information up-to-date?

Fort Plain Central School District has contracted with Public School Notifications from One Call Now. This calling system will make it easy for school to quickly communicate with parents, teachers, staff and communities in the case of an emergency. Officials are still in the enrollment process and training, but parents are being asked to make sure their contact information is up-to-date with their most current telephone number. Please contact your child’s school secretary to make any necessary changes to your emergency contact information.
