“At Lakeview Elementary School, we want all of our children to receive a solid education, but we also want them to grow up to be kind and caring citizens,” said first-grade teacher Lisa Ettlinger, referring to the students’ recent field trip to St. John’s Food Pantry in Mahopac.
Teachers and students collected approximately 160 boxes of healthy breakfast foods to donate.
“We wanted to show our first graders that it can be as rewarding to give as it is to receive,” Ettlinger said.

The children also decorated hearts, which they attached to each cereal box.
“Their theme was ‘A Smart Start Warms the Heart,’” said Ettlinger.
