Students Raise Money for Sporting Equipment

Connolly students are enjoying new soccer balls, dodge balls, tennis balls and hula-hoops thanks to a bake sale fundraiser and the support of a local business.

Members of the school’s Student Council decided they wanted to do something nice for their school. After some brainstorming, they opted to buy new playground equipment and organized a bake sale to earn money.  Student Council members then contacted Board of Education President Rich Maccarone, owner of Valley Sport and Trophy on Glen Street, who afforded the students an opportunity to get many more items than their money would’ve allowed them to purchase.   
Student Council advisers Susan Stanco and Monique Vaccaro expressed their pride in the students, who worked together to make their dreams a reality.
