Members of the Ballston Spa High School International Baccalaureate and Sponsor-A-Scholar programs have continued mentoring Wood Road students for the second year. Once a month the high school students travel to Wood Road with games and activities that they have planned for their mentees. Throughout the rest of the month the students write pen pal letters to each other. The faces of all students light up when the two groups come together.
Performances will be held on Friday, January 31; Saturday, February 1; Friday, February 7; and Saturday, February 8 at 7:00pm. There will also be a matinee performance at 1:00pm on February 1 & 8, 2020. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens and can be purchased at the door before each performance.
