  • Munsey Park Student Council Spreads Holiday Cheer

    MP Toy Drive


                With warm hearts and giving spirits, the student council at Munsey Park Elementary School in the Manhasset School District collected close to 100 toys for Sen. Elaine Phillips’ Holiday Toy Drive to give pediatric patients at NYU Winthrop Hospital a joyous holiday.

                From Dec. 1-15, the council accepted donations from members of the school community, including fellow students. Council members broadcast reminders during the morning announcements and visited classrooms to stress the importance of giving back and helping hospitalized children.

                Sixth-grader Luke Power, president of the council, was one of the council’s four board members who spearheaded the schoolwide collection.

                “It felt really good to see the toy drive come together,” he said. “[We] worked a lot on the toy drive, and I can only imagine how happy these kids are going to be when they receive these presents.”

  • Manhasset Board of Education Applauds Munsey Park’s Kindness 

    MP students

    At their Dec. 7 meeting, the Manhasset Board of Education recognized Munsey Park Elementary School students for spreading kindness throughout their building and community.

    Amid a sea of doting parents, 27 students in grades K-6 were honored by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Vincent Butera, central administrators and members of the board of education for exhibiting good citizenship, compassion and kindness.

    The first group of honorees consisted of students who were nominated by their teachers for demonstrating kindness and inclusiveness in their classrooms.

    Next, members of the Kindness Club were acknowledged for their dedication and community service. The club has been actively promoting kindness in the school community and beyond since the start of the school year, from making Veterans Day cards to honor and thank military service members, to creating Thanksgiving centerpieces for local volunteer firefighters, to encouraging their peers by placing decorative rocks inscribed with positive messages such as “Be Your Own Cool,” “Believe in Yourself,” and “Do the Right Thing,” throughout the school’s property.

    Concluding the recognitions, Munsey Park’s student council officers were honored for serving as leaders, demonstrating respect and providing community outreach. Among their contributions, the student council educated students about the purpose of the school’s buddy bench after it was installed, explaining that if a student is caught sitting on the bench, others should invite them to play. They also hosted numerous drives, including a food drive for the Interfaith Nutrition Network in Hempstead and a paper supply drive to help victims of Hurricane Maria. Currently, they are assisting Sen. Elaine Phillips’ toy drive by encouraging students and staff to donate toys to families this holiday season.

    “Thank you for the positive contributions you make not only to Munsey Park, but to the Manhasset school community,” Board of Education President Regina Rule said to the honorees. “We could not be more proud of you and the efforts you have made to make the world a better place.”

  • Girl's Dress Drive

    Girls Dress Drive

    Spring is in the air and it’s time to do some spring cleaning.  Over the winter months the kids have grown.  With that in mind, students at Munsey Park Elementary School successfully held a girl’s dress drive.  In just two days’ time, 120 dresses, piles of ribbons, bows and shoes were overflowing from boxes and bags!  The MP Kindness Club coordinated with the 4, 5 and 6th grade students to get the word out to our generous families.  The donations will be sent to Central Islip to help ease the cost of buying new dresses for promotion and an end of the year promotional dance.  

    A posting to social media, from a teacher who works out east, asking for assistance, prompted this effort.  The teacher will set up a boutique to making it a special shopping experience for the students.  This will certainly help to allow each girl to select one dress for each occasion.

    Munsey Park Kindness Club students decorated a drop off box, made flyers and went around to each class to inform them about this spring cleaning, urging students to ask parents, siblings and friends to look through their belongings and upcycle.  The generosity was overwhelming!
