Helping out

Berkshire Arts & Technology Charter Public School ninth-graders recently decided that they wanted to raise $1,000 to help with the devastation in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of hurricane Maria. The students put on a dance and hosted a "Penny Wars" event to reach their fundraising goal. The $1,000-plus donation was proudly sent to United for Puerto Rico last week.

In addition, the BArT Student Ambassadors have visited with the seniors at the Adams Council on Aging, read to children at the Berkshire Museum Literacy Night, and collected more than 500 items to be donated to local food pantries in North Adams and Pittsfield the week of Thanksgiving. Ms.

Construction managers had a schedule calling for the building to be buttoned up in November, and heating pumped in to keep the building warm for
