Members of the Moriches Elementary School community donned purple to support “P.S. I Love You Day,” a day designed to spread love in order to decrease bullying and promote mental health awareness. “P.S. I Love You Day” was started in 2011 by former West Islip High School student Brooke DiPalma following the tragic suicide of her father and a student at her school. Held annually on the second Friday of February, the day promotes positive messages of love, acceptance and community, symbolized by the color purple. Due to the snow day, “P.S. I Love You Day” was moved to February 17. Pictured with fifth-grade students are Moriches Elementary School teachers Susannah Johnson (right) and Lori Renna.
