The Merrick Union Free School District Board of Education was pleased to acknowledge Birch and Chatterton Elementary School students Jason B., James C., Max M., Adam S. and Alex S. as “Merrick Stars.”
In December, as members of Cub Scout Pack 206, these students collected nearly 500 winter coats to donate to local Merrick families in need and charities across Long Island.
Board of Education President Nancy Kaplan commended the children for their “exceptional contribution” to the Merrick community and to those in need.
Each of the students received a certificate in honor of that contribution, as well as a “Merrick Star” T-shirt to wear with pride.
“We are so very proud of you, and many families across Long island will be warm this winter because of your efforts and what you have done for them,” Chatterton School Principal Dana Bermas said. “You truly are Merrick Stars.”
