October 14 - A Day to Shower Everyone with Colorful Kindness
Since the very first day of school on September 6, 2017 Benjamin Cosor Elementary (BCES) and the entire Fallsburg Central School District (FCSD) has been preparing for a major event to highlight the District’s commitment to prevent bullying and promote healthy behavior. Spearheaded by the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and Olweus Bullying Prevention Program since 2008, BCES held two assemblies to accommodate the entire school at the front on the building to introduce the Color Run on October 14 behind the Fallsburg High School.

Color Run is part of a national campaign to create a united front against bullying with the school and community. Event coordinators are teachers Jessica Bradley, Heather Mady and Heather Clausen, with the help and support of school administration, staff, students, the FCSD Wellness Committee, parents, volunteers, community agencies and businesses.

On October 14 from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Fallsburg High School the community meets to become more aware of bullying and to combat it. There will be dozens of information tables with resources devoted to encourage positive behavior, good health and well-being. The Color Run itself is a 5K Walk/Run on the nature trail behind the FHS. Participants will be dusting each other and school staff with pastel powdered coloring—“showering everyone with colorful kindness.” The event motto is “Color Our Community with Kindness.”

Race registration begins at 8 AM and starts at 10 AM. Vendors for the event are welcome and should contact the Coordinators as soon as possible, at least five days before October 14 to reserve a table. Registration forms are on the school web site www.fallsburgcsd.net and you may contact Coordinators Bradley, Mady and Claussen at 845-434-4110.
