Students at Pulaski Street Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District showed local seniors love by creating hundreds of Valentine’s Day cards for seniors in Riverhead and at the Southampton Senior Center.
“The students at Pulaski really want seniors to know that they are thinking of them,” said library media specialist Amelia Estevez Creedon.
The card project was part of the school’s monthly character education initiative and linked through the school’s intergenerational library program. In the past, students connected with local seniors through storytelling projects and caroling.
