The “Thoughtful Thursday” monthly series at the Central Boulevard Elementary School continues, and a special activity was held on April 11 with the intention of helping others. Exactly one month shy of the Long Island Special Olympics, students created artwork for the local event.

Grade levels were tasked with different activities that led to a collaborative compilation of decorations to support the Special Olympics participants. Kindergarten and first grade classes colored and cut out inspirational ribbons, while second graders prepared rainbows displaying special messages. Third and fourth grade classes wrote thank you notes for volunteers and the fifth graders illustrated posters for athlete encouragement. 

The district will host more than 500 athletes for the Long Island Special Olympics, which will take place at the high school’s athletic fields on May 11.
