Woodhull Elementary School students and staff participating in a program called “Move It! for Military Kids” during the week of Oct. 19.
The idea was created by the Military Child Education Coalition to bring about awareness of the challenges these children face in their daily lives with moving,transition, and family separation.
School Nurse Janet LaViolette coordinated the weeklong initiative at Woodhull, which included a different activity for each day of the week. These included a hula hoop contest, a “mystery hike” and yoga with Superintendent of Schools Loretta Ferraro.
The cause was near and dear to the Woodhull community, as approximately 50 percent of the Fire Island School District’s student population comes from the Babylon Coast Guard station.
