2017 Red Mill character education walk

Red Mill students are looking out for one another. That was the message at the school’s 3rd annual Character Education Walk last Friday.

Escorted by the Clinton Heights Fire Department and East Greenbush Police Department, students and staff from Red Mill and school district administrators, participated in the one-mile walk around Hampton Manor Lake. Students held each other’s hands during the walk in support of school community and inclusiveness.

The event began with an assembly in the cafeteria to discuss this year’s theme of “I’ve got your back,” which was written on the back of special shirts worn by participants. Principal John Caporta, Superintendent Jeff Simons and East Greenbush Town Supervisor Jack Conway all addressed the students in support of their efforts.

School social worker Maria Fontaine announced that the funds raised from the event will be used to purchase a Buddy Bench for the playground in the fall. Once installed, a student who wants to play with other kids can sit on the bench and other students will know to invite them to play together.
