Students at Clayton Huey Elementary School welcomed IGHL to the building on Valentine’s Day. Fourth and fifth graders in the Friends and Buddies Club and the Kindness Club spread love and smiles as they worked together to participate in Valentine’s Day-themed crafts.

Students rotated through stations with individuals from IGHL to make sensory bottles, create paper kindness trees, make tin foil hearts and paint a rainbow banner. The hands-on activities provided students with the opportunity to collaborate, be creative and spread joy while connecting with members of the community.

Cereal Box Challenge Knocks Down Hunger

Clayton Huey Elementary School knocked down hunger with its annual Cereal Box Domino Challenge. Throughout the month of January, the building collected 400 cereal boxes from students and staff. On Jan. 25, the boxes were lined up as a maze throughout the gymnasium and knocked down as a giant set of dominoes.

After the event, the cereal boxes were donated to the local nonprofit organization Helping Makes U Happy, which benefits the Center Moriches community and provides volunteer opportunities to help those in need.

Clayton Huey Elementary School has collected more boxes of cereal each year since starting the event four years ago. Next year, the building hopes to reach its goal of collecting 500 donations.
