Have A Heart

Fourth and fifth-grade students participating in the 21st Century Program at Central Boulevard Elementary School took on the special activity of creating Valentine’s Day cards for senior citizens residing at The Bristal in Lynbrook.

Under the direction of fifth-grade teacher Patricia Tierney and social worker Sarah Glassman, the students met after school to brainstorm creative ideas for messages to be written in the cards, and then gathered art supplies to design their valentines. The students used construction paper, markers, crayons, foam stickers and hearts, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, and glue to construct their cards, then wrote positive messages for Valentine’s Day.
