Valentines for Veterans

In celebration of Valentines Day and to honor our veterans, sixth-grade students in Lisa Garry’s class at Shore Road School in Bellmore joined together with the second graders in Karen Reilly’s class at Charles A. Reinhard Early Childhood Center to create valentines for veterans. Together, the students participated in a read-aloud of Devin Scillian’s book “H is for Honor,” discussed the contributions that veterans have made for our country, and worked in pairs to create the valentines, which were sent to veterans through Hempstead Town Councilwoman Angie M. Cullin’s office.
