During the week of April 13, the High School and Middle School teamed up to embark on a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Instructional Week. Throughout the week, students from both schools participated in daily lessons and activities focused on social-emotional learning, mindfulness, mental health, and self-reflection. As part of the activities, students were asked to create digital thank you cards to show gratitude to first responders and essential workers within the Glen Cove community. These cards were sent digitally to the local post office, police and fire departments, hospital, and grocery stores to spread cheer and thanks during this difficult time.

Finley student sews masks

main thumbnail168862
Finley eighth grader Virginia Graziosi is using her time away from school to contribute to the community. When she was not doing schoolwork, she wanted to help the local medical staff at Glen Cove Hospital and started sewing reusable cloth masks. “Being at home inspired me to help in any way I could,” said Graziosi. “So, I gathered supplies and started sewing.” Rosella Graziosi, Virginia’s mother, said, “she received the sewing machine as a gift, and taught herself to sew watching videos on YouTube, but only started using it more until she knew the difference she could make with it.”

In total, Virginia sewed 50 masks. While Virginia and her mother originally planned to drop the masks off at the Nassau County Public Safety Parking lot, her aunt, who works in the radiology department at Glen Cove Hospital, suggested donating the masks to the local hospital. The cotton masks are often worn over disposable surgical masks and N95s, extending their wear-time for healthcare workers who have been reusing their PPE while caring for COVID-19 patients. “It is so gratifying to know that we could help our Glen Cove community. We are so thankful for everything our essential workers are doing to keep us safe during these strange and uncertain times,” Virginia said.
