GLEN COVE - Students in a second-grade class at Deasy Elementary School in Glen Cove took turns learning about each other on the first day of class.

The students introduced themselves with a piece of string in their hands and passed the string along to the next classmate, creating a web of friendship and trust.

“I like to start out the year by getting to know each other, so we can create a warm environment where everybody is close and comfortable,” said teacher Marci Notice.

The goal of the web exercise is to build a lasting community in the classroom.
