In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the John F. Kennedy High School Key Club from the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District worked with Reinhard kindergarten students on a Love Bug project. The activity allowed the 25 club members to receive valuable community service hours while providing an opportunity to mentor younger students.

The kindergartners had fun decorating their red construction paper love bugs with fluffy pipe cleaner antennas, eyes and messages of love, while the high school students demonstrated important role modeling and teamwork skills.

Advisor Jessica Chilton said the high school students enjoyed working with the younger students. “The Key Club always looks forward to visiting schools and fostering community partnerships between districts,” she said.
