Since November 1984, the students at the Stuart M. Townsend Middle School desire that all children of the Hadley-Luzerne Central School District have a Merry Christmas.  In a long term service tradition, the students will join the MS Student Council, parents and local community members who work diligently to provide a happy holiday to all.  A Santa Sprint (Walk-a-Thon) will be held to raise money, usually between six and eight thousand dollars is collected.  This provides each needy child on the list with a new present under his/her tree.  All students in grades 3-8 are eligible to walk and urged to participate.  Students will be collecting pledges throughout this month.  Pledge sheets will be collected by volunteers.  On Monday November 3rd , the Santa Sprint (Walk) will start at the high school cafeteria at 1:00 pm.  Parent participation is welcome.  Students will board their buses home at the high school at 3:10 pm. The top forty pledge collectors will shop for the gifts on Friday, November 14th.  The SMTMS Student Council will hold a canned food drive during the months of November and December.  Please help support these worthwhile projects. We all thank Mary Claire Noakes who will pass on this worthy project to the SMT Middle School Student Council and parental volunteers.
