A Commitment To Community Service

Thursday, 02 October 2014 00:00

In observance of Patriot Day, Lee Road Elementary School students pledged to engage in community service during the 2014-15 school year. 

 

Patriot Day is an annual observance on Sept. 11 to remember those who were injured or killed during the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. 

 

These Levittown students were not yet born, but the Eileen Vogel’s fifth-grade class commemorated the historic event by studying the bombing of the World Trade Center Towers and the subsequent building of the Freedom Tower, thus acquiring a better understanding of Patriot Day. The students also wrote community service pledges on hearts decorated like the American flag and posted their commitments to help others on the bulletin board. 

 

Bus Etiquette

Thursday, 02 October 2014 00:00

In an effort to continue keeping children safe as they arrive and depart from school, the Levittown School District provided bus safety training by district drivers. At Lee Road Elementary School, students learned about proper behavior, as well as procedures in the event of an emergency. The drivers then demonstrated how to safely exit from the rear of the bus during an emergency. Lee Road teacher Pamela Smith and bus driver Alu Zuardi helped students exit from the back of the bus, a skill they need to learn in case of an emergency.
