First-grade teachers Laura Fitzgerald and Laura DeSa of Tooker Avenue Elementary School reinforced the concept of giving with their students while assisting members of the West Babylon community.
The first-grade teachers and their students united to donate Thanksgiving turkey dinner baskets for two West Babylon families in need. The teachers provided the gift cards for the turkeys while the children brought in vegetables, gravy, stuffing, corn bread mix and brownie mix to complete the meal.
"This is an important lesson for the students,” said Ms. Fitzgerald. “It brings to life the concepts of community taught in first grade while reinforcing and supporting the character education lessons that are such an important part of their development."
