North Colonie Kids Care

While the North Colonie Central School District has many clubs and service organizations which are widely known, it also has individual students who are quietly doing what they can to bring about positive change in this world.  To highlight these students and recognize them as the role models they are, North Colonie will feature one student a month with a presentation at a Board meeting, followed by a profile of the student and his or her activities.

Please note: We are not accepting nominations at this time.
