The District honored a group of students and a staff member for their recent acts of kindness at the board of education meeting on May 2.
Students from Washington Street School were recognized by Principal John Stella, Superintendent Dr. Jared Bloom and the board for their participation in the school’s recent St. Baldrick’s fundraiser event, which raises money for childhood cancer research. About 20 Washington Street students participated in the fundraiser. They collected donations and had their heads shaved at the event. This year, the school raised approximately $19,000.
Part of the school’s team recognized at the meeting included: Charlie Colatorti, Brayden DiTalia, John Evangelou, Misha Foley, Dylan Hagmaier, Aidan Kolb, Thomas Mahoney, Christiano Mancuso (not in attendance), Alexander Mazzeo, Kevin Mulholland, Patrick Mulholland, Jacob Ortiz (not in attendance) and Lucas Vargas (not in attendance). The students received Acts of Kindness awards. H. Frank Carey High School students Jack Lewinger and Ryan Tierney also received awards for their participation.
Following the St. Baldrick’s recognitions, Washington Street School teacher aide Vita Amico was honored with a Making the Difference Award for her recent assistance with a student in a medical emergency.
