Hewitt students help Skelos make a difference


Members of Hewitt’s Student Council joined forces with Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos in an effort to help make his annual Holiday Toy Drive a huge success. Under the leadership of special education teacher Rachel Vyskocil and teaching assistant Abbe Wade, students collected new, unwrapped toys for distribution to those children within our community who were negatively impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Through this important and meaningful effort, students learned first hand that by working cooperatively together a positive difference can be made for those in need of help during the holiday season.
