The William Floyd Alumni Association (WFAA) has once again welcomed the district’s youngest students by assembling and donating packets of school supplies for approximately 640 incoming kindergarten students and future members of the Class of 2029. WFAA members, district officials and members of the varsity cheerleading team and the Rockettes recently gathered to assemble packets for each student, as well as supplies for each kindergarten classroom in the district’s five elementary schools – John S. Hobart Elementary, Moriches Elementary, Nathaniel Woodhull Elementary, Tangier Smith Elementary and William Floyd Elementary. Individual student packets consisted of colored pencils, a notebook and folders; classroom packets included crayons, pencils and glue.
“We are pleased that we are able to welcome our newest and youngest students by providing them with these welcome packets” said Jackie Eglevsky, President, William Floyd Alumni Association. “We wish them nothing but happiness and success in their William Floyd journey and look forward to hearing the great things that they can and will accomplish.”
The William Floyd Alumni Association, a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization, exists to promote the education of students of the William Floyd School District, provide a conduit through which alumni may direct charitable activities in support of their school community and its students, providing charitable relief to those within the district who may be in need, recognize outstanding accomplishments through scholarships, celebrate achievements and honor those who have made tremendous contributions to the district through the annual Outstanding Educators Award, Athletic Hall of Fame and Distinguished Alumni Award, as well as to build and foster a renewed camaraderie between and among William Floyd alumni and the community.
