Fire Island School students and families to pitch in at the Lighthouse / Kismet Cut Area
This year Fire Island School Superintendent Loretta Ferrraro saw an opportunity for the Woodhull school community to get involved as part of the April 23rd community cleanup.
Fire Island School students and their families will pick up litter and debris along the road, bayside, and beach between the beginning of Burma Road through Lighthouse check point and Kismet cut. It is a great opportunity engage in hands on stewardship to help Fire Island and highlight thier community service curriculum.
If you are traveling in the area that morning please drive with extra caution and give them a wave of encouragement for doing thier part to help the environment.
