The Reinhard Student Advisory Council spread love and song to residents of the Parkview Nursing Center in celebration of Valentine’s Day. Dressed in traditional colors of the season, the students performed several tunes, including “V-A-L-E-N-T-I-N-E,” “Love Somebody,” and “You are My Sunshine.” SAC members then handed out valentines to their new friends to celebrate the holiday.

As an extension of the district’s core values, music teacher Randi Andersen said she impressed upon the students the importance of giving, not just collections from the school, but of giving time to others. “We wanted the students to spread sunshine and to do a good deed for others,” she said. “Our Bellmore students are so young, but I believe this is a great time for them to learn this concept.”
