Making Wishes Come True

Making Wishes Come True

Students, faculty and staff members from Edward J. Bosti Elementary School were recently congratulated by representatives of the Teachers Federal Credit Union for their outstanding efforts to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Due to their ability to come together to support a good cause, students collected more than $500 in pennies, while the Teachers Federal Credit Union donated an additional $500 of their own. At an assembly held in the school’s atrium marking this milestone, mathematics specialist Stephanie Gozaloff joined TFCU representative Jennifer Gunn in presenting a check in the amount of $1,050 to Make-A-Wish Foundation representative Frank Gaeta Jr. The school would like to thank Mrs. Gozaloff and Youth and Family Services Coordinator Ryan McGuckin for arranging this annual fundraiser. 

The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants a wish on average, every 34 minutes to a child with a critical illness in hopes of bringing out some extra smiles. The district congratulates Michelle Semder’s pre-school class for being named the top fund-raiser this year, and being rewarded with a celebratory pizza party in the near future.

A Centennial Celebration


Staff and students from Bosti Elementary School recently celebrated the 100th day of the school year by taking part in a variety of creative activities in relation to the number 100.

To begin the day’s festivities, kindergarten students from both Colleen Malone’s and Jordon Volper’s classes took part in a colorful parade throughout the halls of the school, as the upperclassmen lined the parade route to watch the young students walk by wearing their 100th day-themed shirts, dresses and hats.

After parading around the school, students went back to their classrooms and worked on a number of fun activities surrounding the number 100. Besides being a fun day for all, educators credit the 100th day theme with improving math skills and sharpening students’ observation skills. The students are also aware that there are about 80 days left of classroom instruction, and are looking forward to summer vacation as it begins to approach.
