Proceeds from the Saugerties High School Benefit Concert will be distributed to 4 programs vital to our students:

Tomorrow's Engineers Today The Saugerties Robotics Teams consist of several 'Sawyers' who travel to competitions during the school year. Students spend hundreds of hours creating technical projects that are showcased in VEX competitions. The teams also spend time advocating technology education at the elementary school level.

STEM Summer Camp STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Summer Camp is a place where high school students teach younger students about STEM and robotics. Students learn about coding, mechanical engineering, and other technology related fields that interest them. The student counselors gain a firm grasp on teaching and education while the younger students learn about technology and its global influence.

The Saugerties Youth Backpack Program This program provides a weekend supply of nutritious food for children. This food makes up for the school meals that children miss during their weekend and extended breaks from school. The program is run completely by student volunteers from the Saugerties High School Key Club, who help sign children up, pack food bags, and organize the donation drives that keep the program running. The program is funded by the generous donations given by the staff and faculty of the Saugerties Central Schools and the Saugerties Community.

Public Art on Parade Saugerties high school students will collaborate with Arm-of-theSea Theater co-founder Patrick Wadden to create large-scale puppet figures for the Holiday in the Village parade on December 8th. Inspired by characters from world literature, the figures will also be featured at the high school's library fair.
