Members of Connolly’s student council created handmade cards, puzzles and crafts for Nassau County veterans in recognition of Valentine’s Day.

Under the guidance of advisers Susan Stanco and Monique Vaccaro, students took part in the Valentines for Vets program, writing heartfelt notes to local veterans to thank them for their service to the country. The children created the cards using a variety of craft items, including red paper doilies, heart-shaped stickers and candy canes, which were put together as heart decorations. The students also decorated puzzles with messages and pictures for the servicemen and women.     

Stanco said the students were thrilled to send these messages and show gratitude to those who have sacrificed for our country.
