Happy Birthday, Theodore Roosevelt!
“Theodore Roosevelt” paid a surprise visit to students at Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School, Oct. 26, as part of a school-wide celebration in honor of his birthday.
Born on Oct. 27, 1858, which fell on a Saturday this year, President Roosevelt — also known as Mr. Michael O’Neill, the father of kindergarten aide Sherry McKevitt — came dressed in his Rough Rider uniform to greet students as they arrived at school and then gave presentations about his life in their classrooms.
Red Ribbon Week Promotes Good Choices
Students throughout the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District are more knowledgeable about living healthy lifestyles after participating in the National Red Ribbon Campaign, Oct. 22-26. Established by the non-profit organization National Family Partnership, the campaign aims to heighten awareness about the dangers of destructive behaviors and promote good choices.
