During this unprecedented time, fourth graders in Gina Foppiano’s and Lauren Bianco’s class at Winthrop Avenue wanted to express their gratitude toward the first responders at the Bellmore Fire Department, who have been working countless hours to keep the community safe and healthy.

Each student was instructed to write a thank-you letter or create a poster to demonstrate their appreciation for the first responders’ work during the pandemic. With much synergy and collaboration, the letters and posters were digitized on a banner which now hangs in the firehouse as a token of the class’ appreciation.

On behalf of the class, Ms. Foppiano said, “We are so proud to be part of this tight knit community and to be able to give thanks to all the essential workers.”
