Warwick Valley CSD Community eBulletin

The District is saving paper! Instead of printing flyers about community events, information is being sent via this weekly School News Notifier (SNN) email.

To submit your non-profit organization’s event to be included in the Community eBulletin, simply send your information — in the body of an email, please — to communications@wvcsd.org.

Due to current circumstances around the Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic, we suggest people contact organizers to make sure events are still happening prior to attending.

3 Pines Nature Place Volunteer Clean-Up Day

Saturday April, 24   |   9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

3 Pines Nature Place is hosting its first, monthly Volunteer Clean-up Day at the Warwick Valley Community Center (11 Hamilton Avenue). 

Volunteers, please bring a set of gloves and any gardening tools of your choice (rakes, shovels, hand tools, etc.). There will be complementary refreshments throughout the day.

For information, please call (845) 986-6422 or send an email to dsharlynn3@aol.com. Of course, you can also find us on Facebook.

3 Pines Nature Place is a natural play area that assembles elements of nature and cultures to create explorative play and learning opportunities for children of all ages. There is a cedar palisade fort, dry stream beds and bridges for wandering, a dirt kitchen, a life size birds nest, an agility path, and plenty of gently rolling hills. Come experience it for yourself.

Many hands make light work. We hope to see you! 



Register today for Warwick FLAG Football & Cheerleading.

 

Warwick Flag Football & Cheer is back by popular demand after a fun and successful 2020! Registration is now open for all current K-12 boys and girls, and will continue through April 15. A waitlist will begin on April 16. Register online at www.warwickyouthfootball.org.

Registration is open to all K-12 children living in the Warwick, Florida or Greenwood Lake school districts. The season gets underway on May 17 with practices once a week, and games are played throughout June and July. We have set it up so that children can play flag football as well as spring scholastic sports — baseball, softball, lacrosse, soccer, etc. — with little to no overlap. It’s normal for players to miss a few flag games during the season for vacations so please sign your child up to have fun in June & July!

Every K-12 team will play one game, occasionally two, each week. Games are played at Veteran’s Memorial Park, and even a few under the lights on June and July evenings.

And, we’ve got good news! We added two high school flag football divisions — boys and girls.
Open to all current 9-12 boys and girls!

Flag Football Cost: $75 per child
No money is required when you register in April, we just need accurate numbers for planning the season and coaching staffs.

Cheer cost: $50 per child
Includes conditioning, working on sideline cheers and basic skills. No contact or dance routine for this season.


Highlander Rugby, a non-profit youth rugby team entering its 11th competitive season, has relocated to Warwick and is actively recruiting for high school boys and girls to field U18 and U16 sides. Practices are at Veteran’s Memorial Park from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday nights, under the lights. Games are played on Sundays, and the team has a full slate of games and “controlled scrimmages” this season, starting on Sunday, April 18. 
Rugby is a fast, hard hitting sport, emphasizing fitness and fair play. Come see what it’s all about. For more information, email highlanderrugbynj@gmail.com, or come by a practice any Tuesday or Thursday.
