Students in the Port Jefferson School District’s Middle School are working in conjunction with Port Jefferson Village in the Paint Port Pink initiative for the Fortunato Breast Health Center at Mather Hospital.

As part of the October community outreach of raising awareness about breast cancer, Monica Consalvo, a teacher at the school and seventh-grade students Ellery Tafuro and Tamara Scully created a poster that hangs in the hallway to showcase ways that others can become involved in the community activities. Some of the local businesses involved in the campaign have special offers for the month and students, families and school staff members are encouraged to visit the shops to help with the awareness efforts.

As concerned community partners, the students and staff will each write their name on a pink ribbon sticker and all the stickers will be colorfully displayed within a larger ribbon outline showing that they are all engaged in the endeavor.
