Lisa Brush's family and consumer sciences (FACS) class at Babylon Memorial Grade School completed their end-of-year project to create puppets that will be donated to Wyandanch Head Start.
    
According to the Long Island Head Start website, the organization provides children from low-income families with a preschool experience to give them an equal opportunity for success in the public school system. These student-created puppets will help the children develop language skills and express their feelings in a constructive way.  
    
Former Babylon FACS teacher Cindy Theiss and Joy Torrey, a community volunteer, assisted with this worthwhile project alongside Mrs. Brush and Babylon High School practical arts teacher Jenna Cucci.
