Keeping The Cool In School Festival

ELMIRA, NY (WENY)---Come this September, the Elmira City School District won't look the same.

More than 120 staff members won't be back for the next schooll year and several programs will be reduced while elementary schools are consolidated. It's the result of multimillion dollar budget short fall.

Now, several members of the community are stepping up to the plate trying to restore some programs and bring in much needed cash for the struggling school district. This saturday, from 10 to 4 at Elmira's Eldridge Park, the group known as Friends of the Elmira City School District will hold the "Keeping the Cool in School Festival.

A walk-a-thon will kick off at 10. Walkers will get a t-shirt with a donation of $10 or more.

Live music starts at 10 with other activities to begin at noon. For more information, please visit http://www.friendsofelmiracityschooldistrict.com/
