    Community is the first “C” in the district’s COCOA Principles and we appreciate the support we receive from our community, including our corporate neighbors.  Tanger Outlet Center Hershey provided teachers Kelly Stewart and Jeanine Dreher with a grant for $1,200; the funds will be used to purchase 35 stability balls, a seating alternative with proven educational value for students who benefit from some movement during learning.
