• In celebration of Olivia Rose Sacco, whose joy and kindness touched countless lives, Deerfield Elementary School launched an annual fundraising event in her memory -- "Love Like Olivia Day." On May 31, students and staff at Deerfield, Hart's Hill, Marcy and Westmoreland Road Elementary Schools joined to support the cause. The goal was to raise funds for a foundation established in Olivia's honor, dedicated to sponsoring a memorial scholarship for a Whitesboro senior who exemplifies kindness. Olivia's legacy of spreading love and brightness continues to shine through this initiative in the community she cherished. "Love Like Olivia Day" serves as a beacon of hope, inspiring others to embrace her joyful perspective and pay it forward to make a difference.

    Students and staff at each school building joined in honoring Olivia's memory by wearing her favorite colors: purple and tie-dye, and performing acts of kindness. The Deerfield Elementary PTO also served lemonade all day and sold "Love Like Olivia" bracelets for $2.00 to benefit the Olivia Rose Sacco Foundation.
