Northport veteran partner devotes time and treasure

Northport K-8 School Veteran Partner in Education Bill Arnold returns frequently to campus to bring information, news and gifts of American flags, pins and other articles to bring smiles to students of all ages. Mr. Arnold recently returned shortly after a classroom visit to third grade teachers Megan Castiglia and Susan Poveromo’s classes for a Veteran’s Day Commemoration. His gifts were framed photographs of each student sporting his own military jacket and beret from the Vietnam War era. Students were so thrilled to receive the photographs that they could take home as mementoes of his many visits to the classes. Northport K-8 School welcomes veterans on an ongoing basis, and they have become part of the persona that makes Northport K-8 School a welcoming, community based school that appreciates and promotes American History and patriotism.
