Willow Road Elementary School recently participated in the heartfelt program “Valentines for Veterans,” in partnership with the Town of Hempstead. Drawing from the spirit of the Valentine’s Day holiday, the Willow Road Student Council developed a school-wide initiative to send heart shaped letters to local Valley Stream veterans. Students from kindergarten through 6th grade took time out of their daily curriculum to express their gratitude for the selfless contributions of the brave veterans.
Willow Road’s librarian Carole Anne Weik, 6th grade teacher Karen Higgins and art teacher Donna Geidel helped the Student Council facilitate the program. The uplifting messages of love and appreciation will now be sent to local veterans just in time for Valentine’s Day.
