Hefty thanks to the ninth-graders of Brooklyn Studio High School for pitching in and helping to keep our streets spit-and-polish clean. The clean initiative dubbed “Service for a Day,” was put together with the help of Assemblyman William Colton (D–Bensonhurst) and Councilman Mark Treyger (D–Coney Island).
The students, including Joseph Elhaje, Juliano Caushi, Jayline Bonilla and Denise Fernandez, donned gloves, and grabbed a bag, and made a sight to behold out of an eyesore.
According to principal Andrea Ciliotta, “The motto of the school is ‘unity is community,’ pay it forward.” The students picked up trash along Bay Parkway, Kings Highway, and 18th Avenue.
“When our students returned from a day of cleaning, they had a real sense of pride and ownership of a good deed done in their community,” she added. “I am truly proud of all my 125 students or so who participated in the give-back-to-the-community day of service.”
Standing O is proud of them too!
