Arbor Day at the Arbors

Third-grade students in Diane Boccio’s class at John Pearl Elementary School recently visited their friends at the Arbors Assisted Living Facility of Bohemia in celebration of Arbor Day.

Throughout the course of their visit, the students were able to share their colorful drawings and posters illustrating the beauty of the spring season, and placed beautiful flowers into pots with their Arbors’ friends.

“Each year, the school comes up with a theme connected to academics, social-emotional learning and dignity for all students,” said Donna Leopardi, youth and family services coordinator at John Pearl Elementary School. “The themes are integrated into the children’s everyday experience, and this year’s theme of ‘Hand in Hand Across Our Land’ has been applied to districtwide initiatives.”
