Dear Parents, With the holidays fast approaching, it is time to start thinking about supporting a local organization that offers assistance to the Cazenovia Community and surrounding areas. This year, we have once again chosen Caz Cares to receive the gifts of kindness from our Burton Street and Middle School Holiday Sharing Program. Your generous donations directly help families in the Cazenovia School District. There are several ways that you may want to consider giving. Caz Cares is always in need of non-perishable food items to stock their shelves, new hats and mittens in various shapes and sizes, or a new game or toy that will go to a child in need. All gift donations should be unwrapped. Each entrance at Burton Street and Cazenovia Middle School will have festively decorated and labeled boxes to receive your gifts of kindness. We hope your family will take the time to discuss ways that you would like to share this holiday season. We understand that with these economic times that some families will not be able to contribute and that is okay. Your child will see the spirit of giving in the donations that are given as a school community. The project will start on Monday, November 27. All donations need to be brought in no later than Thursday, December 7th. Thank you in advance for your family’s generosity. Our school community is committed to building character in our student body. One of our core character traits is sharing. This is a very worthwhile project that teaches that valuable lesson to the young and old alike. Have a wonderful holiday season.
