Tamarac Elementary has partnered with the Harlem Wizards for a fitness-focused fundraiser. As part of the WizFit challenge, students were encouraged to collect donations while learning about fitness and character education. Students watched interactive videos where they learned basketball tricks and activities coached by members of the Harlem Wizards. As a culmination of the fundraiser, some of the Wizards visited Tamarac Elementary School to put on a performance.

During the Harlem Wizards’ show, students participated in dances and watched their teachers showcase their basketball skills. Students raised nearly $15,000 for Tamarac Elementary School and its PTA, surpassing its goal of $10,000. For beating the goal, Tamarac Principal Dr. DeBello was duct-taped to the gym wall!

A Tamarac Elementary School third grader is in the spirit of giving and for the second year in a row, has organized his own toy drive. Dean Plantamura encourages his peers to drop off toys to his home. Dean and his family then donate the toys to Suffolk County Family and Children’s Services to be distributed to local families in need.

Those who drop off presents are welcomed to admire the Christmas decorations at the Plantamura home and are given a candy cane for donating a toy. Dean hopes to share the message that Christmas is about giving, not receiving. He has collected nearly 100 toys this season and is already planning his drive for next year.
