Today marks the start of Teacher Appreciation week. This year, teacher and staff appreciation has certainly taken on new meaning for our schools and our parents. Throughout this crisis, we have honored the heroes who put their lives on the line every day to save lives---our doctors, nurses, paramedics, firefighters, and police officers. This week we also honor the teachers---the heroes who tirelessly navigated an educational emergency amidst this health crisis, sacrificing long hours, days and weeks to figure out how to teach their students remotely and help them feel safe and secure in the process.
Congratulations to Adeline Rodriguez, her poster will be featured on the 2020-2021 FLES folder! Please see the link to see her published artwork. While Adeline placed first in her age group from Lloyd Harbor School for the AATSP Poster Contest, she later placed 2nd "in the nation" in her age group!!! Way to go Adeline...

SIT members felt that elderly citizens residing at local nursing homes would enjoy the writing and drawings by young children.
