With gardening gloves and trowels in hand, members of Connolly’s Student Council worked to beautify the grounds surrounding their school.

The children, along with advisers Susan Stanco and Monique Vaccaro, planted marigolds donated by the City of Glen Cove Beautification Committee in flowerbeds around the front of the school, including those lining the walkway to the school’s entrance. The students also cleaned up around the school property as part of the project.   

“We really wanted to beautify the school, and we thought this was a great way to teach students to take care of their environment,” Vaccaro said.
