Sachem School District
Students at Cayuga Elementary School in the Sachem Central School District are supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation this holiday season. Through a schoolwide effort led by teacher Tina-Marie Mikos, students wrote down their wishes for children with illnesses. They dropped their letters in a special mailbox located in the building’s lobby. For each letter that is received, Macy’s will make a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The activity helps teach children the importance of giving over receiving. Students were excited to send their letters and take part in what has become a tradition at Cayuga Elementary School.
