Bayview Elementary School
Snedecor Avenue, West Islip
The entire fifth grade at West Islip’s Bayview Elementary School decided to participate in Operation Goodie Bag this year, in honor of the people who sacrificed their lives in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Decorated and filled with candy, many of the bags were brought to the memorial service of New York Police Department detective Joseph Pidoto, who lost his battle with 9/11-related cancer. Retired and active members of the NYPD paying their respects were able to take home a bag full of goodies as a thank you for their service.
