Minnewaska Elementary would like to extend our sincere appreciation to Alisha and Justin Zavadil (American Solutions for Business and American Diversity) and Pat and Dan Douvier (Screen Prints Plus) for their generous support of our readers at Minnewaska Elementary School. “Because of them, we have been able to recognize and reward students who have gone above and beyond in their reading efforts this school year,” it was stated.
