A great way to start the school year


Every year, for over 20 years, the Patchogue-Medford Congress of Teachers and Lions Club of Patchogue donate school supplies to the Patchogue-Medford School District.  These supplies are provided to help elementary school students whose families are unable to afford what they need for school.  The donation was accepted this year by superintendent of schools Dr. Donna Jones from Lions Club president Vito LaMonica and Patchogue-Medford Congress of Teachers president Kevin Toolan (center).  Dr. Jones thanked both organizations for their donation and continued commitment to the district’s students as they return to school this week. Pictured are members of the PMCT, Lions members and the district’s elementary school principals: (l-r) Christopher Angelora, Erin Skahill, Sharon Deland, Tania Dalley, Mr. Toolan, Dr. Jones, Mr. LaMonica, Robert Epstein, James Wilson, Peter Feehan, Emily Wernau, Rui Mendes and Matthew Handley.  Community members wishing to donate school supplies can contact the Patchogue-Medford Family Center at (631) 687-6751.
