Wading River Students are Stronger Together

When students in Wading River School learned about the mystical powers of Redwood trees and the vitality and longevity they symbolize in a lesson with art teacher Rosemarie Petruzzellis, they learned that they are stronger together.

With a root system that grows outward instead of deep in the ground, the trees wrap around one another and form a bond until they are all connected and grow tall and strong together.

When students in grades 3-5 took part in creating a large paper collage that lines a hallway in the school, the project and concept took on one of the school’s principles: “Our strength is shared together and it grows together.”
