Bennett Elementary School’s Student Council officers recently accepted a $1000 donation from the Imagine Onteora Foundation, which is to be used towards the purchase of risers for the school’s music department.

Imagine Onteora Treasurer Walter Bollenbach (second from right) and President Rita Vanacore (far right) presented the generous gift during a January 4 meeting that included (from left to right) Bennett Principal Gabriel Buono and Student Council Officers Clare Voelker (treasurer), Marena Quick (secretary), Hudson Turbo (vice-president), and Takemi Sono-Knowles (president). Imagine Onteora is a non-profit foundation dedicated to improving the quality of the educational experience for Onteora students.
