Taking the LEADD on Making Healthy Decisions

November 08, 2017

Taking the LEADD on Making Healthy Decisions - image001The Levittown community gathered together on Oct. 29 for the district's annual Levittown Education Against Destructive Decisions Family Walk and Fair at the Levittown Memorial Education Center. Although the rain brought the festivities inside, the gymnasium was filled administrators, faculty, students and families who visited booths from a variety of community, student and parent organizations and clubs.

The district hosts the event each year as a culmination to the educational programs and activities taking place during the week in each building. Students tackled healthy lifestyle choices and making positive decisions.

During the event, students and their families were encouraged to wear their best Halloween costumes for a costume contest. The gymnasium was full of participants wearing their most creative attire. At the start of the festivities, Father Ralph Sommer was announced as grand marshal, while two student marshals were named as well. Division Avenue High School student Alisha Sharma and MacArthur High School student Erin Cassano were selected as marshals for embodying a positive role model and leader in their schools and in the community.

"The big point of LEADD and why it's so important is to really unite the school district and the community," said Assistant Director of Special Education Jordan Margolis. "Today we have a tremendous amount of community support. The point of LEADD is to bring awareness to prevention to making positive decisions and I think the link between the schools and the community is really important in that process."

Students and their families walked around the gymnasium to play games, create crafts, mingle with fellow community members and more. Due to the weather, an indoor parade took place where students in their costumes had the opportunity to show off their looks. The student marshals judged the costumes and awarded first, second and third place winners.
