New trustees appointed; plans for Fall Ball

The Haldane School Foundation (HSF) recently finalized $22,320 in enrichment grants for fall that will fund such student offerings as model United Nations, Farm-to-School and chess programs, computer tablets and educational field trips to Albany, Teatown and New York City.

The $22,320 in fall grants bring the total in HSF 2015 enrichment grants to $67,220.

“The money that funds these grants comes entirely from the individuals and businesses of our community, which supports the foundation and Haldane students with incredibly generous contributions of time and resources,” said new HSF President Shannon Keegan.

The community will have another opportunity to support Haldane students at the upcoming HSF Fall Ball, which will be held on Friday, Nov. 6, at the Highlands Country Club. Attendees will enjoy cocktails, food and dancing. Tickets will be on sale soon at haldaneschoolfoundation.org. Parents and any other members of the community who would like to help with HSF’s biggest fundraiser of the year can donate silent auction items or become a volunteer “Friend of the Foundation.” For more information, contact Cecily Hall at marketing@haldaneschoolfoundation.org.

The HSF, which welcomed the Haldane Class of 2028 at HSF/PTA Kindergarten Orientation Social with GoGo Ice Pops and Tshirts, also announces the appointment of three new HSF trustees: Lori Powers, Kevin Gaugler, Melany Campanile and Heidi Stephens. The new HSF Executive Board includes Shannon Keegan (president), John Hedlund (VP), Roman Danilov (treasurer) and Cecily Hall (secretary).
