Finley Middle School students and staff dressed in orange to send a message of support, hope and unity against bullying in commemoration of Unity Day on Oct. 24. Throughout the week students created posters of support with positive messages that bullying will not be tolerated. They also created an orange connect link, writing antibullying statements on orange strips of paper. The paper links were then connected to create one long chain representing unity against bullying. Students received bookmarks that read “Be a Champion Against Bullying” and signed a petition against bullying. Everyone responded with terrific enthusiasm, which made Unity Day 2018 a success.

Local Business Donates to Finley’s Food Pantry

Local Business Donates to Finley’s Food Pantry photo
Finley Middle School Food Pantry recently received a donation of $371.20 from Rising Tide Natural Market in Glen Cove.  

The school’s food pantry was selected as Rising Tide’s September Charity of the Month, a program supported by its Bring Your Own Bag initiative. The Bring Your Own Bag Charity of the Month program allows Rising Tide to change habits and save trees, while helping local nonprofits that provide vital services to neighbors in need. The market’s customers are charged ten cents for every paper bag given out at the register – money which is then donated to the Charity of the Month. When customers bring in reusable bags, they are credited ten cents per bag, or given the choice to donate that money to the Charity of the Month, as well. 

Finley’s Food Pantry, which is open on Fridays from 3-5 p.m., was created by members of the school’s Kiwanis Builders Club, National Junior Honor Society and Student Council, as part of the school’s collaboration with international charity and educational partner WE Charity (formerly known as Free The Children). Through this effort, students are committed to making a positive impact on the local and global communities. The money raised will be used to purchase a refrigerator for the food pantry.
