December 2017 - Bardonia Elementary
Every year, fourth and fifth grade students volunteer to be part of Bardonia’s Student Council. As a student council member, children volunteer to find ways to connect all Bardonia students and families to our greater community. In addition to supporting district initiatives such as the fall UNICEF Penny Drive and Toys for Tots, Bardonia students work together with families to make and be the difference in the lives of many. This fall, children wanted to help hurricane victims. Reaching out to our Bardonia community, over 100 pairs of new pajamas were collected and donated to families in need. In November, our Gold team hosted a food drive in which over 700 lbs of food was collected through the generosity of our Bardonia community to support People to People. This December, our White team is hosting a winter clothing drive where new or gently used winter coats, hats, scarves, etc. are being collected and donated to families in need throughout Rockland County. With many such acts scheduled throughout the school year, Bardonia’s Student Council under the facilitation of Mrs. Wein and Mr. Pisano continues to inspire us all!
