Sylvan Celebrates Veterans

Sylvan Avenue Elementary School marked Veterans Day with a patriotic assembly.

During the event, students and staff members performed several songs and the school made donations to two philanthropic organizations. They presented Honor Flight Long Island with a donation of $630, which will enable two veterans to visit the National WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C., and presented $340 to the America’s Vet Dogs organization. 

As a result of last year’s donation, two Sylvan staff members were invited to accompany veterans on a recent Honor Flight. The following video was shared during the assembly to highlight the work of the Honor Flight and the support the school provided the organization last year:
