Curvy Kids at William Floyd Elementary School helps fight scoliosis

Travel deals

William Floyd Elementary School has a fun and exciting program called Curvy Kids.

Curvy Kids is held the first Monday of every month. Our school raises money by selling items that are "bendy."

After we collect money, we send it to Stony Brook University Hospital for kids that are suffering from scoliosis, an abnormal

curvature of the spine.

Our principal is Keith Fasciana. His daughter, Olivia, has a rare form of scoliosis, which was why he thought of the program.

Then, he presented the idea to the student council, and a plan was developed when we found out that we had a few students with scoliosis in the school.

By the end of this year we will have raised at least $500. The funds go to the Stony Brook Hospital Scoliosis Center and Curvy Girls Scoliosis, a support group.
