Mrs. Sabatelli’s fifth-grade class at Sawmill Intermediate School in Commack honored our veterans this week. Students created “Bookmarks for Bravery” with American Flag icons and quotes about bravery. The bookmarks are being sent to local veterans organizations to share the students’ love of literacy, as well as to student’s family members serving in the armed forces.

Special guest visitor, Vietnam Army veteran Paul Pedersen, who is Mrs. Sabatelli’s grandfather, shared his experiences in the armed forces with the children. He also shared his favorite pastime – reading! The class was so excited to do their part to help veterans and to thank their Mr. Pederson for his service.
