Rocky Point School District elementary students shared in the spirit of giving when they helped collect pajamas for the Pajama Program, an initiative organized through Scholastic’s Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive.
Spearheaded by Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School fourth grade teacher Deborah Vieira several years ago, the annual fun and festive way to help others has spread to the district’s Frank J. Carasiti Elementary School and has resulted in more than 200 pairs of pajamas being donated this year.
Vieira will deliver the pajamas to Little Flower in Wading River, where each pair will be matched with a bedtime book from Scholastic and distributed to children who live in the local community.
