Students Open Hearts to Community

BALLSTON SPA – On Wednesday, Feb. 28, registered nurse Jennifer Zelezniak of Saratoga Hospital visited Karel Spratt’s second grade classroom, where students took time to make a difference in their community by creating activity books for children in the emergency room at the hospital.

As part of the Milton Terrace Elementary School’s Community Service Day, Brittney Stone’s fourth grade class joined Spratt and Zelezniak. They also created thank you cards for different departments of the hospital, and another class put together snack bags for first responders who are always on the go.

Franklin Community Center and Operation Adopt-a-Soldier also were recipients of the students’ generosity that day. Approximately 500 students participated. The school-wide event was coordinated by the Milton Terrace Character Education Community Service Committee with the goal of teaching students the value of respecting both themselves and others.
