Manhasset students at Munsey Park and Shelter Rock Elementary Schools created Valentine’s Day cards for local veterans. Students wrote heartfelt messages and drew pictures to thank veterans for their service and spread love ahead of the holiday.
Ms. Shackel’s class at Shelter Rock participated in the Valentines for Veterans initiative through Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman’s office. Students reviewed letter-writing skills and brainstormed details that their Valentine’s Day messages would include. In addition, the class spoke about how important it is to respect and thank our veterans.
At Munsey Park, Ms. Santomauro’s first grade class worked with their buddies in Mrs. Mora’s fifth grade class to create the cards. The activity brought different grade levels together to collaborate and share ideas.
