Student council members at the Charles A. Reinhard Early Childhood Center utilized the Bellmore School District’s core values and leadership principles as they collected and assembled bags of toiletries for soldiers stationed in the Middle East.
Respect, teamwork, continuous improvement and being proactive assisted in their campaign to provide toiletry bags containing toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, wipes, candy, pens, pads, Sudoku and word search games, batteries and cookies. The students also decorated a card included in each of the bags to brighten the soldiers’ day.
Teachers Amanda Kowalski and Jennifer Magliano both have soldiers near and dear to their hearts stationed in the Middle East and will personally send the toiletry bags to the troops.
