Dr. Fuchs and the Board of Education honored the following High School students at the January 26th Board meeting Emily Azcue, Kelly Sepa, Eva Shorto and Amelia Spittal and recognized them for their outstanding community service work.
These students spent approximately 20-25 hours working on a backpack drive last summer. They collected 130 backpacks and enough school supplies to fill each one with notebooks, pencils, crayons, markers, rulers, flash cards and more. They delivered 80 to PS 236/173 in the Bronx and another 50 to the Oakside School in Peekskill.
This past fall these same girls spent about 10 hours working on a coat drive to benefit the Oakside School in Peekskill. With help of Mr. Burruano, Mr. Hallisey and Mrs. Edelman the girls were able to collect about 75 coats, gloves and hats.
They are planning to continue with the backpack drive this Spring/Summer.
