Spreading some love, joy and smiles this Valentine’s Day, members of the Builders Club at Copiague Middle School visited with locals at Tanner Park Senior Center. As part of a yearly tradition, now in its 17th year, the students spend the morning with the senior citizens. The Builders Club, the junior version of the Key Club, is run by adviser Maria Ostrofsky. 

Each senior citizen was hand-delivered a rose and a handmade card by a member of the Builder Club to help brighten their day. The students spent time getting to know the local members of the community. There was plenty of time to play games, chat and even hit the dance floor to learn some new moves.

Fifth graders in Ms. Graziano’s class at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School worked on a literacy assignment related to the book “Esperanza Rising.” After completing the book, the students worked in groups where they recreated the ending, made their own comic strip, wrote about the pros and cons of different scenarios in the book and illustrated a scene.
