GiGi’s Playhouse offers more than 30 therapeutic and educational programs that advance literacy, math skills, motor skills and more; all of which are free of charge. Ms. Maxwell spoke to students in grades K-5 about recognizing and celebrating differences, and expanded upon the Generation G Campaign: Be Accepting. Be Generous. Be Kind.

Sharon Elementary 3rd grader Anthony D'Amico served as “Principal for A Day” on November 30 and learned the ropes from Mrs. Kathryn Kowza, Sharon Principal. He had several duties to take care of throughout the day including helping with morning announcements, inspecting the building, eating lunch with the principal, and of course, having his picture taken with the principal! This day was one of the many items auctioned off during the 14th Annual Highland Foundation Dinner & Benefit Auction held on November 10. Each elementary school participated in the auction. Anthony is the son of Tony and Amy D'Amico of Montville Township.
