During the week of Feb. 3-7, Copiague School District celebrated National School Counseling Week to focus attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within the school system. This year’s theme was “School Counselors: Helping Build Better Humans.” National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselors Association, highlights the impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.
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.
