Harborfields Students Give Back to the Community
Students of the Harborfields Central School District, including Monique Keith Golding’s second-grade class at Washington Drive Primary School and Augustino Rettino’s and Susan Turrini’s fifth-grade classes at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School, “filled buckets” and candy bags in collaboration with the Harborfields Alliance for Community Outreach (HACO).
The students worked diligently to create approximately 300 greeting cards and spring candy bags for members of the community who would benefit from them. The project was part of a “giving back” initiative prompted by Maria Ryan, a class mother in two of the aforementioned classes. “We are hoping that the idea catches on, and that giving back becomes a way of life for these students,” remarked Ms. Ryan.
