A Special Celebration at Harley Avenue Primary
By Alison DeMaria
Students of Harley Avenue Primary School in the Elwood Union Free School District enjoyed Special Person Day on Feb. 13. The pre-Valentine’s Day celebration allowed students to invite those people in their lives whom they deem special to visit the school and join them in some unique activities. The children’s projects included designing a wrapper for the chocolate gift they presented to their guests and creating handmade cards.
When kindergartner Nora was asked who her special person was and why she chose him, she remarked, “I chose my Pop Pop as my special person because I really like him!” She and her grandfather along with the others in attendance, took photographs together at the various “Special Person Photo Spots” set up around the school. It was the perfect opportunity for proud students to give a tour of their school and show off their work to the special people in their lives.
