Temperatures were cool but spirits were warm as residents participated in the 27th annual Levittown Education Against Destructive Decisions Walk and Community Fair. Each year, this much-anticipated event precedes a week of school assemblies and activities in the Levittown School District that highlight ways for students to live healthy lives and learn to make decisions that will have positive outcomes.
Each of the district’s schools marched one mile through the neighborhood behind artistically designed banners. Student marshals Katherine Darr from Division Avenue High School and Mia Katz from MacArthur High School accompanied Grand Marshals Alice Andersen (retired social worker) and Jackie Levine (MacArthur High School drug and alcohol counselor), as well as district administrators, Board of Education trustees and the Salk Middle School band, to the cheers of neighbors. Community representatives, including Supervisor Kate Murray, Councilman Gary Hudes and Legislator Dennis Dunne, also joined in the fun.
After the parade, participants met in the gymnasium to hear speeches and introductions prior to the community fair. Superintendent of Schools Dr. James J. Grossane welcomed the community to the event and thanked residents for their support of the school district. “It is great that this event is always well-attended, and to see that parents and the community are so willing to support students in making good decisions for themselves,” he stated.
In addition to games, informational booths were set up by local support groups and community organizations to provide participants with valuable information. Nancy’s Dance Factory also entertained participants with a variety of dance numbers.
