Students at Pulaski Street Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District showed local seniors love by creating hundreds of Valentine’s Day cards for seniors in Riverhead and at the Southampton Senior Center.

“The students at Pulaski really want seniors to know that they are thinking of them,” said library media specialist Amelia Estevez Creedon.

The card project was part of the school’s monthly character education initiative and linked through the school’s intergenerational library program. In the past, students connected with local seniors through storytelling projects and caroling.

Pulaski Street Elementary School sixth grade students have been expanding their math and science knowledge as part of an interdisciplinary STEM program that was made possible through a grant from the Hess Corporation and Baylor College of Medicine.

School librarian Amelia Estevez Creedon secured the grant, which provided 12 Hess trucks that students are using to perform a variety of STEM-based experiments. Students are also researching simple machines using nonfiction texts and virtual resources such as e-books and videos.

“The program is a wonderful example of how children can learn through play,” said Estevez Creedon. “It’s great to see the kids laugh and enjoy the materials while simultaneously learning difficult concepts.”
