The ARHS OUTDOOR PROGRAM wishes to thank the PGO for supporting them this year with funds that were used to purchase new tents.
Since approximately 1970, the ARHS Outdoor Program has offered opportunities for students in our district to get outdoors. They lead day hikes, overnight trips, leadership programs, and the chance to push boundaries in the Survival Living program. For almost that long, participants have carried old leaky tents into the field!
The new tents were put to use right away, as we experience heavy rain on the first night of Survival living this year. The students who used these tents reported that they were totally dry the next morning!
The PGO is able to fund this program through the participation of parents/guardians in the Stop & Shop A+ Rewards Program.
The funds raised through this program make it possible to support many initiatives and have made a difference to teachers and students.
If you have not done so, please take a moment to register your Stop & Shop cards for the A+ Rewards Program and help support exciting projects proposed by our students and teachers.
Purchases made at all Stop & Shop stores will benefit ARHS, including purchases at stores in Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island!
