Sandy, the Mega Storm, Could Not Dampen Port Washington School District's
Spirit of Giving
Dear Salem Families,
Sandy, the terrible Mega Storm, impacted most Long
Islanders - unfortunately, some worse then others. Several Days after
Sandy hit, an email went out that our Port Washington School District
Community was adopting the District of Oceanside, which was hit hard.
Unfortunately, all of Oceanside's supplies were destroyed and needed
to be replaced. Many Salem families, and much of our community,were
still without power and in the midst of cleaning up. But this did not
stop you from coming out and showing your support for our South Shore
Neighboring District. Salem's cafeteria tables were overflowing with
new supplies that had been donated. This was true of all the schools
in Port Washington's School District.
The delivery of school supplies went off without a hitch, and we filled
an Oceanside School Gymnasium with supplies. Oceanside Administrators
were truly overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and the volume of
donations from Port Washington! This wonderful selfless gesture helped
so many students, teachers, and families breathe a sigh of relief, and
made it that much easier for the Oceanside District to open their doors
It is hard to express the pride and appreciation
for the manner in which the Salem School District participated in this
drive. The donations made by so many students, families, and staff members
truly embodied the community service spirit that defines Salem School
and the Port Washington School District as a whole.
Thanks and Appreciation,
Chris and Dawn
