“We didn’t mean to make you cry!” But each bus driver was certainly moved to tears as they were handed a bag of personal thank you notes from the students at Lloyd Harbor School just days before the Thanksgiving holiday. One driver said, “I can’t read these now, I’m already crying and I need to drive this bus!” It was a day of heartfelt joy and humble surprises, as each group of staff members were given a bag full of thank you notes on “Gratitude Day” at LHS on November 22nd.

To bring back some of this nostalgia, Lloyd Harbor SIT (School Improvement Team) in collaboration with student council, encouraged all grades to write “Expressions of Gratitude” to members of their Lloyd Harbor School family.
