Student volunteers from the Bayport-Blue Point High School Peers-to-Peers program recently came together to assist their community in various ways during the school’s first Citizenship Day event.

Throughout the course of the afternoon activities, upperclassmen could be seen alongside freshmen making hundreds of sandwiches for the Bellport Boys & Girls Club, creating dozens of toiletry baskets to be donated to benefit local veterans, planting gardens courtesy of donations from Bayport Flower Houses and cleaning up debris at Bayport Beach.

“Through the Peers-to-Peers Program, every ninth-grade student is provided with academic, emotional and social support,” said David Johnson, Peers-to-Peers program adviser and Bayport-Blue Point High School music teacher. “The program fosters a positive and inclusive school environment while providing every student with an opportunity to develop a meaningful connection with other students and staff.”
