Shirley, NY - December 5, 2013 - William Floyd Elementary School students in conjunction with Brighter Tomorrows, an organization that advocates for victims of domestic violence, recently participated in HERO Week (Helping Everyone Respect Others) as a character education exercise to coincide with the celebration of Veterans Day

Each day was themed around a particular topic related to anti-bullying and showing respect for others. Students participated in a heroic medal contest, Stars and Stripes Day, Camouflage Day and more. They also created thank you cards to send to soldiers currently stationed overseas. “The purpose is for students to know that we can all be a hero to someone else by the kindness that we show,” said Keith Fasciana, Principal, William Floyd Elementary School. “It was also a way to honor our heroes currently serving in the armed forces.”
