The fundamentals of good citizenship in community, classroom and family were at the forefront of a recent lesson in Donna Gianfortone’s first-grade class at Chippewa Elementary School in the Sachem Central School District.
During the lesson, students learned the various attributes that make a good citizen, and the class then organized a recycling project as a way to display its good citizenship. As the ongoing project continues, the class will donate the funds it raises to a different organization every two months.
This month, the donation will be made to Horstmann Heroes. George Horstmann, a student in the class, has diabetes and helped to educate his peers on the condition.
