Students in Justin DeMaio’s and Marie Lucie’s classrooms at Bayview have been participating in UNICEF Kid Power Up, giving them the power to save lives and make a local impact.

The students take short brain breaks periodically throughout the week to dance while watching videos created by UNICEF, earning valuable “Kid Power Coins” that can be given back to local causes in the Kid Power Exchange. The students decide how to help communities through such options as supporting food banks, tree planting or health supply deliveries.

“When students make an impact globally and locally, they realize they have the power to make a difference,” said DeMaio.

In preparation for the celebration, the building was decorated with displays of original student artwork, some of the pieces were framed and presented to veterans via a raffle. The “Wall of Heroes,” a photo display of military family members connected to Bayview’s students and staff, was proudly displayed in the main hallway. Band and chorus members prepared patriotic selections and students throughout the school worked to create letters of gratitude in honor of the veterans. The event culminated with a special breakfast, provided by Bayview’s PTA and complemented by songs performed by various grade levels.

“It was a morning filled with celebration of our true heroes,” said Principal John Mullins. “The Bayview gymnasium was brimming with excited cheers, tears of gratitude and an overwhelming sense of humility and pride.”
