Earlier this school year, Fire Island’s Woodhull Elementary School introduced an eight-week mindful education program, which included lessons on becoming more empathetic and understanding toward others. As part of this mission, the school recently coordinated two community service drives for those living locally and working abroad. Working together, the school students and staff collected several boxes of non-perishable food items for a Thanksgiving food drive benefiting Long Island Cares and families in need.
The first and second grades also donated 17 pounds of Halloween candy to Dr. Tichler’s dentist office for soldiers serving the country. It was noted that Woodhull’s donation was among the top amounts received, for which they were awarded a letter of commendation.
