As part of Junior Achievement’s High School Heroes program, Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School students enrolled in the leadership class became teachers for a day at Deauville Gardens East and Deauville Gardens West elementary schools on Nov. 4.  

The high school students spent the day in the third- and fourth-grade classrooms teaching different lessons. The High School Heroes program is a service learning project that provides high school students the opportunity to become role models by teaching and empowering elementary students within their school district. High School Heroes work in teams to mentor students with hands-on, interactive lessons to students centered around work readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship.
