Giving Trees, Toy and Coat Drives, and Book Collections abound in Central Islip School District as administrators, faculty, staff and students organized collection drives gathering age appropriate toys and books to be delivered to our youngest Community members, all in an effort to spread holiday cheer and happiness. The generosity and humility exhibited by students and staff in their efforts translated into hundreds of gifts, outerwear, and books. O'Neill Social Worker Mrs. Melanie Tran noted that this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools were collecting gift cards. The O'Neill staff collected monetary donations totaling over $2,000 which translated to gift cards that were distributed to families. Mulligan Elementary organized a coat and toy drive-by coordinated by Ms. Militano and Ms. Blanco. At Mulvey, Kids Just Wanna Have Fun, under the direction of Bilingual Speech Pathologist Amber Amature organized a fundraising event on social media asking for shoeboxes filled with goodies - enough for each Kindergarten and First Grade classes, as well as a class set of 26 books (Superfudge, by Judy Blume), which was presented to Ms. Teneiro's very special 4th Grade Class at Mulligan. At Central Islip High School, under the direction of social workers Ms. Rios and Ms. Cramer, gift cards have been collected and distributed to help make the holidays brighter to local families during the pandemic. The Morrow faculty and staff provided gift cards and treats to over 20 families in the school community, and the Cordello faculty and staff also coordinated a gift card collection which was distributed to help spread cheer to local families during the holidays. The Central Islip Board of Education, Administration, Faculty, and Staff wish the entire Central Islip Community a peaceful and joyous holiday, and as we prepare to welcome in 2021, they extend wishes for a safe and happy New Year.
