Students at the Robert M. Finley Middle School teamed up with the Glen Cove Education Foundation to work on finishing the new student lounge and courtyard project at the middle school.
The revitalization of the courtyard was funded through the Education Foundation, with students and volunteers helping to clean up the area and maintain a small garden. Danielle Fugazy, of the Education Foundation, said the courtyard and lounge would include furniture and that the school would limit its use to students with good behavior.
“The students are 12- and 13-years-old, so this will give them a place to go,” Fugazy said. “They can do school work, relax and have a little fun with their friends.”
