Valley Stream Union Free School District Thirteen’s Willow Road Elementary School recently participated in the Valentines for Veterans program in support of Nassau County Executive Laura Curran’s countywide initiative. The Willow Road Student Council took the lead in organizing the school’s participation and encouraging peers to write these meaningful valentines.
Students in kindergarten through sixth grade took time out of their daily curriculum to express their gratitude for the selfless contributions of the brave veterans. These letters of appreciation will be sent to veterans in local nursing homes and hospitals just in time to spread love for Valentine’s Day. The District continues to provide students with opportunities to collaborate on community-oriented projects throughout the school year.
