Members of the Summit Lane Elementary School community in the Levittown Public Schools virtually joined together to create a special thank you video project to show their appreciation for those working on the frontlines during these unprecedented times.
The 21-minute YouTube video featured pictures of staff, students and their families holding thank you posters and signs. The project was coordinated by teachers Cynthia Dano, Maureen McLaughlin, Jennifer O’Brien, Christine Pase, Meghan Ruane and Marge Wade.
A thank you flyer with a link to the heartwarming video was presented to frontline workers along with platters of soft pretzels from the Philly Pretzel Company in Bellmore. Summit Lane staff members donated money to provide these treats to essential workers at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Nassau University Medical Center’s intensive care units, the Nassau County Police Department 8th Precinct, the Levittown and East Meadow fire departments, and the Target and King Kullen in Levittown. The Summit Lane staff also wanted to thank the school’s custodians for working hard to keep the school safe. They provided them with gift certificates to Fred’s Deli.
