The Waverly Park Elementary School community in the Lynbrook Public School District celebrated a week of fundraising for research and raising awareness of type 1 diabetes with the non-profit JDRF.

The week kicked-off with a Zoom call with Waverly Park graduate Jonathan Marcus, who talked to students about his daily life with type 1 diabetes. Jonathan said to students, “When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade,” and he discussed how life has its challenges, but you always make the best of it. The week continued with read alouds, a “wear yellow” day and teacher relay races. Students also assembled a school lemon tree with positive words and pictures.

The week culminated with a school lemonade stand which raised nearly $500 for the JDRF foundation.

Students at Waverly Park Elementary School in the Lynbrook Public School District got a first-hand experience learning about and understanding those that live with a disability thanks to a special guest.

Joe Slaninka, a coordinator for The Viscardi Center who was born with spina bifida, spoke with students about his disability and shared how he lives an active lifestyle. Mr. Slaninka showed students how he exercises, travels and plays basketball, sometimes using special equipment. With a second wheelchair, students also sat and practiced moving around.

The Waverly Park PTA also presented a $500 donation to the Henry Viscardi School Student Council. Students handed the giant check to Mr. Slaninka at the end of his presentation.
