Students at Central Boulevard Elementary School in Bethpage plan to celebrate veterans on Valentine’s Day. For their Thoughtful Thursday activity on Jan. 20, students took part in Nassau County’s “Valentines for Veterans” program as a full school project for the first time.
In previous years, individual teachers at Central Boulevard have participated in this annual event. Students colored their own cards and took the time to write a message thanking veterans for their service. The Valentines cards are distributed to veterans in hospitals and nursing homes throughout the county as a way for them to know that they have not been forgotten.
