Schools across the Riverhead Central School District marked Valentine’s Day by celebrating P.S. I Love You Day through a variety of age-appropriate activities.
At several schools, students wore purple for kindness, created signs and passed out kindness bracelets. At the high school, clubs united to hand out stop bullying bracelets to students as they arrived at the building on Feb. 14. Throughout the day, the guidance department encouraged students to share kind words by writing them on Post-it notes that were displayed throughout the school. Similarly, at the middle school, students were given Post-its to write positive messages to their peers and place them on their lockers. Roanoke Avenue Elementary School was a sea of purple as students created signs about kindness and antibullying. At Aquebogue Elementary School, students watched a kindness video and colored in “P.S. I Love You” hearts inscribed with positive character traits.
Now in its 10th year, P.S. I Love You Day aims to raise awareness about bullying and suicide while fostering kindness.
