Balloting for the You Choose program has begun at the new Key Bank Branch on Saratoga Road (Route 50) in Glenville. The ballots are available at the Key Bank branch. Ballots must be returned to Key Bank by Saturday, June 4.
Three Scotia-Glenville High School GIVE service learning students were on hand at the grand opening of the Key Bank on Saratoga Road today to explain the programs and projects that they hope the bank will help to fund through their You Choose program.
Students Casey Norton, grade 11; Danielle Conley and Drew Carlstedt, both grade 12, discussed the projects that the Student Senate are hoping would be funded through Key Bank's community-outreach You Choose program.
Customers at the bank through June will vote on the two most worthy projects to receive the bank's combined $1,500 allotment for the programs.
The Scotia-Glenville programs up for contention are:
▪ After Prom is an alcohol-free alternative party to keep prom night (May 20) safe for both the students and the community. IT is totally funded by the PTSA and community donations.
▪ The SGHS Booster Club is an all-sports booster club that provides extra funding for athletic programs and events that are not covered in the school budget.
▪ Life Skills Summer curriculum needs additional funds to help pay for transportation and fees for special education students to access the community and learn about life skills during their summer program.
▪ In the Mission Meals GIVE program, students serve warm meals to the hungry and needy twice a month at the Schenectady City Mission Dining Center. Since desserts are not served, GIVE students would like to prepare and serve desserts when they volunteer. Funding is needed to purchase baking supplies and equipment.
