During the week of Feb. 25, Great Neck Road Elementary School celebrated Friendship Week with a variety of activities each day designed to promote inclusiveness and kindness.

Friendship songs were played during arrival each morning. Each student took a friendship pledge and made their own “scoop of friendship.” Each scoop explained how to make a new friend and all of the scoops were placed on ice cream cones outside of the cafeteria. During lunch periods on Feb 27, students mixed it up by sitting at different tables to meet new friends. During recess, students played games that promoted making new friends. To close out the week, Great Neck Road held an ice cream social sponsored by the Parent-Teacher Association.
