Students at West End Elementary School in the Lynbrook Public School District marked P.S. I Love You Day on Feb. 11 by spreading positive messages of love and encouragement.
It was a purple-themed day at West End, as students and staff donned purple attire to celebrate the day. P.S. I Love You Day is designed to emphasize the importance of being kind to one another, embracing differences and lifting each other up. Students in Marissa Amalfitano’s third grade class learned how to take a stand against bullying and practice inclusivity.
Under the theme “One Step at a Time,” students shared the small ways they can make someone’s day brighter on craft hearts that were hung throughout the school. Students also sent messages of appreciation to peers throughout the day.
