Goldie Maple Academy Coat Drive, Family Night A Success
The Goldie Maple Academy of Arverne has coordinated two successful inaugural events at the school this year: the first annual Coat Drive and first Family Night. The Coat Drive, in collaboration with the Rockaway Development and Revitalization Corporation (RDRC) Beacon program, collected many coats for families in need during the winter season. Family Night was a huge success as well, drawing over 300 adults and children, signifying the emphasis of parent, guardian and family involvement in the lives of students.
