Lisa Brush's family and consumer sciences class at Babylon Memorial Grade School recently completed their end-of-year puppet creation project, which was part of a community outreach effort to help low-income families on Long Island.
The class worked hard for over a month to make uniquely designed puppets that will be donated to Wyandanch Head Start. According to the Long Island Head Start website, the organization provides children from needy families with a top-quality preschool experience that allow them to achieve an equal opportunity for success in the public school system. These student-created puppets will help the underprivileged preschoolers develop language skills and express their feelings in a constructive way.
Former Babylon FACS teacher Cindy Theiss and Joy Torrey, a community volunteer, assisted with this worthwhile project alongside Mrs. Brush and Babylon High School practical arts teacher Jenna Cucci.
