Five Deer Park students proved winners in Assemblyman Andrew P. Raia’s “There Ought to Be a Law…” poster contest, including three students from John F. Kennedy Intermediate School and two from May Moore Primary School. The imaginative students received awards in a recent ceremony at the Perry Duryea State Building in Hauppauge.

The winning legal suggestions were “Longer recess” from third-grader Kaitlyn Burke, “Always wear your helmet when riding your bike” from fourth-grader Adriana Harrilal, “Don’t kill animals, don’t cut down trees” from fourth-grader Cristina Schiaffo, “Never eat gum and swallow it” from first-grader Lillian Finamore and “Don’t drive with animals loose in the car” from first-grader Ryan Pichardo.

“We are very proud of all the Deer Park students who entered the contest because they felt there was a need to create these new laws,” said JFK Principal Susan Bonner. “We encourage their creativity and hope they take Mr. Raia up on his offer to join him in Albany sometime soon to enhance their learning and add to this wonderful experience.”
