The student council at Waverly Park Elementary School in the Lynbrook School District became bakers for a day as they visited the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island to prepare treats.
The student-led effort united every grade to support a donation drive for the Ronald McDonald House. Baking goods such as cake, cookie or brownie mix, tinfoil pans, flour and sugar were collected before the student council made visits on Dec. 14 and 15. There, they toured the house and baked sweet treats for house guests. In addition to the baking supplies, the student council also raised funds for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island with a successful candy cane sale in the front lobby. The student council and the entire Waverly Park community were proud to lend a helping hand for the holidays.
