Students throughout the Connetquot School District recently celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday by taking part in festive events and educational activities designed to give back to the greater community. In the days leading up to this year’s holiday, students used their mathematical skills to create fresh baked goods for area residents, coordinated nonperishable food drives for those in need and took part in themed parades to bring joy to the community.

Students in Alaina Bennet’s class collected over 5,000 items alone, ultimately winning the schoolwide competition to see which homeroom could collect the most food to be donated. Additionally, continuing with their constant contributions to the community, the Helping Hands Club recently gathered, sorted and packaged enough products to be distributed to at least 11 Connetquot School District families. Members of the Helping Hands Club are pictured here with their bountiful collection of food items.
