No Name Calling Week Activities



Blairstown Students Help Veterans

Blairstown Elementary School Students and Staff recently participated in "Operation Chillout".  Student Council members collected money and staff members held a "Casual Dress-Down" Day. Students from kindergarten through sixth grade also made cards thanking the veterans for their service.  A check for $1,095.00 and the cards were delivered to  Tramontin's Harley-Davidson Motorcycle dealership located in Hope.  The money will be used to help build a Tiny House for a homeless veteran in Warren County.


Operation Chillout is an all-volunteer  non-profit homeless veterans outreach program.  Their purpose is the help veterans in need and to end homelessness in the general population as well.
