Flowers Make Valentine’s Day Special At PS/MS 43


PS/MS 43’s Valentine’s Day carnation sale fundraiser was a great success thanks to donations made by Harold Graham owner of Dragon’s Den Florist of Rockaway Park. Pictured here with Denise Leary (science teacher and senior activity advisor), Mr. Graham donated 650 long stem red carnations to help the 8th grade raise funds for senior activities.

Eighth graders from PS/MS 43 helped staff and students share the love with a Valentine’s Day carnation fundraiser. Pictured here l to r: Denise Leary (science teacher and senior activity advisor), Tonya Standford, Harold Graham (owner of Dragon’s Den Florist of Rockaway Park who donated the carnations), Stephanie Cepeda, Treveco Adlam, Taleesha Hardy, Jamel Torres, Simone Harris (teacher), and Ashley Griffin. Thanks again to Dragon’s Den. For two weeks the students filled orders for deliveries to administrators, teachers, friends and individuals. Anonymous deliveries were made too! The sale was a sellout right down to the last bucket of carnations. Many dedicated students remained after school organizing room to room deliveries, tying ribbon and writing messages on cards.
