Fifth-graders at Waverly Park Elementary School celebrated the values of Martin Luther King Jr. in honor of his day of  remembrance this month and day of service. Students read about Dr. King in the most recent Scholastic News Magazine and completed service projects to help others, just as Dr. King did. 

Students in Amy Garfinkel’s class collected 25 blankets to donate to Urban Pathways to be distributed to those in need at the Ivan Shapiro House. Students in Shari Bowe’s class also decided to give back with their own project. The class donated 26 journals with pens and pencils to the Mary Brennan Inn, a volunteer-based organization that supports the hungry and homeless across Long Island. To give residents the chance to love writing, the students created a cover for the journals titled, “Martin Luther King Jr. had a Dream…What is Your Dream?”

Student council members at Waverly Park Elementary School embraced the power of kindness this holiday season by raising more than $200 for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, a nonprofit organization that keeps families with sick children close to each other and provides the care and resources they need. 

With the guidance of student council moderators Shari Bowes and Courtney Jacobs, the student council members sold blue rubber bracelets inscribed with the words “Choose Kindness” for $3 during lunch periods. Those that donated to the cause also received a paper ornament known as a “cheer gram,” to write their name on and place on the school’s kindness tree. During the course of the two sale days, the tree was filled with student ornaments in the school lobby. 

The student council will visit the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island on Dec. 17 and 18 to donate their funds and non-perishable food items to the organization. The students will also be baking for the families there during their visit.
