Students and staff in the William Floyd School District participated in several donation and food drives to help support local community outreaches and food pantries this Thanksgiving season, and many had the opportunity to enjoy a meal together through various in-school and after-school feasts.

William Floyd Elementary School is making a difference for local families this holiday season! They raised $180 for Colonial Youth & Family Services for their Thanksgiving food drive through “Thanks-4-Giving,” a project in which students had the opportunity to purchase small paper turkeys to decorate their school with. This project was spearheaded by the Student Council under co-advisors Jeanne Stern, School Social Worker, and Donna Haakonson, fourth-grade teacher. (Pictured above)
Thanks to the generosity of students and their families, the William Floyd Middle School physical education department ran its first "Knock Out Hunger" food drive collecting 682 items to help the less fortunate within their school community! When the food drive ended, physical education teachers Jennifer Wood, Jaime Curley, Mike Barba and Ron Krawczyk, used some of the donated goods as part of their workouts! (Pictured above and below)
