Dec. 14, 2016 - Flamingos sighted throughout Valley Central School District
What would you think if you awoke to a flock of pink flamingos on your front lawn? If you live in the Valley Central community, unless someone had smuggled a crate of these tropical birds up from Florida (with portable space heaters, we’d hope), chances are you’ve been “flocked.
“Flocking” is arguably one of the district’s most fun fundraisers – the flocking elves arrive after the sun has gone down and leave a gaggle of pink flamingo lawn ornaments on the unsuspecting “victim's” yard alongside an invitation to designate the next “flockee” in exchange for a donation to the district’s All-Night Grad Party. The cycle continues as classmates, friends, and even staff members “flock” one another. Even our very own Superintendent John Xanthis isn’t immune – rumor has it that the flock recently migrated over to Goshen to surprise him.
Does a flock of pink flamingos sound like the perfect holiday gift for someone in your life? Contact the All-Night Grad Party’s fundraising committee on Facebook to request a flocking – suggested donation is $20. All donations support the “All-Night Grad Party,” a Valley Central tradition that provides a safe, sober and fun celebration for our graduation senior students.
