Donating a dozen pairs of pajamas, students in Jessie Ferraro’s fourth-grade class at East Islip’s John F. Kennedy Elementary School participated in Scholastic’s Pajama Program as a way of spreading some cheer to at-risk children during the holiday season. The Pajama Program offers at-risk children the gifts of pajamas and books through matching donations from Scholastic Book Clubs.
“Our class believes that every child has the right to a loving good night, complete with new, clean pajamas and a comforting bedtime story,” said Ferraro.
