Ballston Spa: Wood Road Elementary Students Donate Thanksgiving Baskets
annual Wood Road Elementary School Turkey Shoot was held recently for
students and families. People played a variety of basketball contests and
ended with a parent/staff “knockout.” Free ice cream cone coupons
were provided by Stewart's Shops
to the winners. The event was organized by physical education instructor
Kevin Dayton and the Wood Road staff. They collected enough food to
provide 14 families with a complete Thanksgiving
dinner, including a turkey donated by Hannaford. More than 60 kids from grades K-5 and about 50 parents participated in this annual event.
