Students at St. Augustine’s School in New City have decided to donate the proceeds of their fair day to helping buy an awning for the new handicapped-geared playground at BOCES’ Kaplan schools.
The playground was built with grants and donationsÂ from the state and local organizations, but could use an awningÂ — at a cost of about $80,000. An awning would protect the children from heat and sun. Kaplan school, which houses the county’s most fragile special needs students, operates all year long.
An official check-passing is set for Oct. 30.
