On Jan. 26, West Islip Union Free School District graduate and former Manetuck Elementary School student Vincenza Robiglio visited Manetuck Elementary for a special P.S. I Love You Day project. Robiglio was the recipient of the P.S. I Love You Day scholarship in 2023, given by the DiPalma family. She wanted to give back and honor the special day that the DiPalma family created. Robiglio decided to visit her former elementary school to implement the ideas of the day and educate students on the importance of mental health and kindness. She helped students write a kind word on a purple heart, which was later formed into a larger heart with each student’s kind words displayed in the hallway. Robiglio wanted to show the significance how saying something kind to another person can change their whole day.
