Wantagh Middle School business teacher Nancy O’Connor received a 2018-19 Nassau Educators Federal Credit Union “Funding Your Ideas” teacher grant totaling $250.
Ms. O’Connor said the grant will fund the eighth-grade business management corporate social responsibility project in which students make homemade fleece blankets for patients at the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. The eighth-grade management class also runs the school store, where school supplies and snacks can be purchased throughout the year. During the school year, special sales profits fund the purchase of additional no-sew blanket kits for students to make in concurrent years so the students can fulfill their corporate social responsibilities.
The district congratulates Ms. O’Connor on this outstanding accomplishment.
Through a commitment to educational excellence in a secure, supportive environment, the Wantagh Public Schools shall inspire students to develop a strong sense of individual worth and respect for others, to become lifelong learners and independent thinkers, and to fulfill themselves as concerned citizens in a diverse world.
