In May, we will explore Habit 7 - Sharpen the Saw. People who Sharpen the Saw value the importance of self-care because it puts them in a position to be prepared to do everything they must do. This Habit focuses on taking care of the body by eating right, exercising and getting enough sleep. We are encouraged to spend time with family and friends. We are reminded that we learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. And we are challenged to find meaningful ways to help others. These practices are important because when we sharpen the saw, we are preserving and enhancing the greatest asset we have - ourselves. We regularly renew our body, mind, hearts and spirit.

Dayton Avenue Organizes Effort to Help Those in Need

Dayton Avenue Elementary School students  thumbnail216814

Two Dayton Avenue Elementary School students recently approached building principal Dr. Shelita Watkis with an idea about doing something as a building to help those affected by the crisis in Ukraine.

The students turned their idea into reality and organized an essential items drive where they collected clothing, shoes, first aid items and toiletries. The president of the Pre-Health Professions Club at Farmingdale State College, Holdy Chauvette, accepted the donation and sent people out to collect the items and delivered them to St. Michael’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Uniondale.
