As part of a recent Black History Month celebration, several Westhampton Beach High School students volunteered to read books and participate in engaging activities with students at Westhampton Beach Elementary School.
The high school students read age-appropriate books to the elementary students, including “It’s Okay to Be Different” by Todd Parr, “Our Class Is a Family” by Shannon Olsen, “All Are Welcome” by Alexandra Penfold, “Same, Same But Different” by Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw, and “The Day You Begin” and “The Other Side” by Jacqueline Woodson.
This is the second time that high school students have participated in readings at the elementary school. The initiative was launched by the district’s Equity Committee as a way to bring the schools and students together around something positive.
