Students Host "Have a Heart" Drive

The Babylon Grade School Student Council recently held a “Have a Heart” drive and successfully collected over 50 boxes filled with tissues, toothpaste, deodorant and other toiletries to benefit local shelters and Babylon residents in need.  The program served to reinforce the school-community partnership as an extension of the district’s character education program.
While the “Have a Heart” drive was organized by Student Council advisors Patricia Murphy and Rita Bartenback, along with the help of the third through sixth-grade Student Council members, the entire grade school participated in the drive.  The event wouldn't have been such an overwhelming success had it not been for the collaborative efforts of all involved.
