Second grade students in Stefani Nolde’s class at Brookhaven Elementary School in the South Country Central School District dedicated each day of the week from Jan. 13-17 as a Day of Service to honor the wishes, hopes and dreams of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
To start their week of service to others, students crafted cheerful greeting cards for the residents of Brookhaven Nursing Home to let them know that they are in the students’ thoughts. On Tuesday, the students wrote positive sticky notes to teachers, secretaries, custodians, lunch monitors and other faculty to brighten up their day and to communicate appreciation for their efforts. Plastic water bottles were collected throughout the school to benefit the environment and colorful snack bags were crafted to package snacks and treats for peers in need. The week commenced with a buddy reading activity. The second graders read to younger students a variety of books with themes of kindness, thoughtfulness and acceptance.
Ms. Nolde said she was proud of the students for taking the time to think about others and for making the school and the South Country community a better place.
