WATERVLIET, N.Y. -- Eight after-school programs were aided on Tuesday by the Arsenal Business & Technology Partnership which stepped up today to donate funds to keep the activities going after they were cut from the school district budget.
Now more than 1,300 kids from elementary to high school students will still be able to participate in programs from the chess club, ski club, marching band, and singing programs.
"I have been part of the delta core singing group my entire high school career. So it's very, very important to keep things like this in the school," said high school student Kelly Veshia.
The superintendent says through this donation and with the help of the Watervliet Civic Center she is confident the district will be able to reinstate every club that was cut last year.
