JFK Students Give Back with Holiday Care Packages


Students in the JFK classrooms of teachers Heather Ciurleo, John Colford, Jenny Dixon, Joseph Verdicchio and Jennifer Zylberberg spent time last month creating care packages for those in need during the holidays.

The students decorated bags, which were filled with scarves, gloves, hats, toothbrushes, toothpaste, chips and hand sanitizer. They also wrote notes to include in the packages. The bags were later donated to Community Presbyterian Church in Deer Park.

“We wanted the children to realize how important it was to also give back to the community during the holidays,” said Ciurleo.
