Throughout December, students and staff at Marion Street Elementary School celebrated the season of giving and their theme of the month, kindness. Members of the school’s student council, led by advisers Kristen Keane and Kelsey Occhino, facilitated a toy drive, organized a mitten tree initiative and conducted a fun-filled Spirit Week to help promote a food drive and get everyone into the holiday spirit.

With the help of student council advisers and library media specialist Marie Sarro-Pizarro, the school community donated more than 125 toys to Mount Sinai South Nassau Hospital. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the toy drive took place online. In addition, student council members created a festive video to send to the hospital along with the donations.

Continuing their mission of giving back, the student council created a mitten tree in the school and encouraged the Marion Street community to donate mittens, scarves and hats to support the Salvation Army. The students successfully collected 254 items to donate to children in need thanks to the generosity of Marion Street students, staff and families. 

The student council ended the month on a high note by organizing a Spirit Week before the district’s holiday recess. At the start of the week, Marion Street students brought in non-perishable food items to donate to families in need. They then participated in Merry Monday, Tacky Tuesday and Winter Land Wednesday by wearing specific attire and participating in fun activities.

In honor of Veterans Day, Marion Street first grader Kimberly Nugent in Claudia Hetzel and Joanna Cooney’s class welcomed her father, Timothy Nugent, a veteran of the United States Coast Guard, to speak with her class on Nov. 10. He wore his uniform proudly and led a virtual meeting with the first graders to discuss his experience in the military.

Mr. Nugent decided to join the military after Sept. 11, 2001. He chose the Coast Guard due to his passion for swimming and his childhood memories of seeing the military boats in the ocean. Mr. Nugent began boot camp in Feb. 2002. He emphasized that rigor training taught him discipline and respect. Mr. Nugent was in active duty from 2002-2006. In 2017, he left his family and was sent to Puerto Rico to help those who were impacted by the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria.

“Military veterans must face sacrifices, but we are proud to serve and protect the people and freedom of our country,” said Mr. Nugent.

The authentic learning experience gave the students awareness of the important role that veterans play in our everyday lives. Mr. Nugent’s photographs and stories helped the students understand the concept of what it means to serve the country. The classroom was silent with curiosity as he spoke passionately about his role in the military. The first graders asked questions and wrote thank you cards to show gratitude for the sacrifices he endured to protect our freedoms.

“This will be a beautiful memory for the class, especially for Kimberly,” said Mrs. Hetzel.

The Lynbrook School District thanks Mr. Nugent for his service.
