West End students and staff are continuing to spread messages of encouragement and appreciation for healthcare workers during this global pandemic. Jackie McDougal, a teacher assistant at West End Elementary School, recently reached out to teachers and staff members to see if they would be interested in creating thank you cards for healthcare workers at North Shore University Hospital 4 - Monti Covid unit and the New York Presbyterian Oncology unit. Mrs. McDougal's two daughters, Kathryn and Allison, are healthcare workers at these hospitals and are also proud Lynbrook graduates. The response from the West End students and staff were overwhelming. Three classes created heartwarming thank you cards for the healthcare workers that were both beautiful and uplifting. Kathryn and Allison delivered them to their respective hospitals where the cards were immediately displayed on the walls. Staff members commented on how wonderful they made them feel. Great job, West End!
