Huggy Wuggy [THES]
We are hearing discussions at school about video games and cartoons that may seem age appropriate for young children, but are not. The title of the video game is Poppy Playtime, and the main character is Huggy Wuggy. It is a survival game set in an abandoned toy factory that references killing parents, searching for weapons and general fear/violence. The game/characters have spin-off cartoons that can be found on YouTube and other social media channels.

We would like to encourage you to monitor your child’s screen time to ensure their activities are age appropriate, and talk to them about their online activities and appropriate behavior. Thank you for your assistance in keeping our students safe.

Taconic Hills Little League seeks used equipment!
The Taconic Hills Little League is collecting gently used baseball and softball equipment (gloves, cleats, bats (USA stamp), baseball pants, etc) in order to pass these items along to other families. Please bring any equipment donations to the Elementary Library. Coaches will have equipment available during team practices at the beginning of the season. Any extra equipment that is not needed by our community will be donated to Turn Two for Youth (The Official Charity of the American Baseball Coaches Association) as part of a community service project that one of our former Little League players will be organizing.
