Elementary students collect cereal for a cause
Posted on 05/05/2022

Students at Old Country Road School in Hicksville participated in a cereal food drive that ran for four weeks. The school’s student council coordinated the effort and collected 182 boxes of cereal from fellow students.  

On April 12, to celebrate the cereal drive contributions, members of the fifth grade student council arranged the boxes of cereal to create a giant cereal box domino run in the gym. After the successful fall of the boxes, the student body joined together to sing “Count on Me” by Bruno Mars.  The cereal is being donated to local food pantries.
