Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School students in the Social Skills in our Schools Group, The After-School Group and John F. Kennedy High School Student Government recently honored the memory of members of the Plainview-Old Bethpage community who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001, by re-planting a 9-11 Memorial Garden.
The ceremony also was dedicated to community member Jane Pollicino, who died in February 2013. Pollicino, who lost her husband on 9-11, was a prominent supporter of 9-11 community events. The students honored her memory by planting a weeping cherry tree in the garden and celebrated her life and the lives of her family members and friends, and Plainview-Old Bethpage staff. Members of the Student Government mentored special needs students from the social skills and after-school groups through all phases of the garden enhancement project.
