FONDA, N.Y. - The Fonda Fultonville School District, like many districts in our area, has suffered deep budget cuts, and one of those cuts put the high school's prom in jeopardy.
When all extra curricular activities were cut out of the 2012-2013 budget students, staff, and parents were devastated when they realized that meant no advisors for the class of 2014 and no junior prom.
The only way to have the two advisors needed, was to have the $1,600 to pay them donated and students didn't waste any time making that happen.
"We stayed at McDonald's asking for donations. People donated generous amounts of money," said one student.
The two new class advisors have even donated their pay checks back to the prom, but the students still have a ways to go to make their masquerade prom come true and continue to put in extra hours to fundraise.
