Students and staff from the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center and Waverly Park Elementary School recently teamed up to host a “Peds for Peru” drive. Together, the school communities collected more than 220 pairs of shoes to donate to students in need at the Primaria 50896 San Isidro Labrador Publica in Huayllabamba, Peru.
Connecting with the district’s 2019-2020 theme of the year, A Community of Caring, this fundraiser was one of many service projects that Lynbrook students participate in throughout the school year to give back.
