We are so excited to share a photo of one of our staircases at Lee Avenue. Now the children can review their multiplication table while going upstairs to their classrooms. Thanks to our art teacher, Staci Kolinsky, AIS teacher Lia Leone and support staff, Jennifer Joyce and Dorothy Santoro for making our steps to success a reality!
In support of Veteran's Day, each staff member wore jeans today and donated $5.00 toward the GI Go Fund. This non-profit organization helps returning veterans find jobs, health care and housing. Students may also make a $1.00 donation which we will continue to collect. If you would like to find out more information about this fund please visit their website at www.gigofund.org. Together we support our troops!

Students at Lee Avenue are Bucket Fillers! Each month we acknowledge students for being a "Bucket Filler." During the school year we are encouraging, reminding, and recognizing everyone's efforts to be bucket filler at home, at school, and everywhere they go. Students are developing good character traits with our "Bucket Filling" program. Congratulations to the bucket filler of the month for October, Dina P. in Ms. McMorrow's class.
Valerie Pfundstein, author of Veterans: Heroes In Our Neighborhood, visited Lee Avenue in honor of Veterans Day. The children discovered the similarities between the veterans, and superheroes that are immortalized in cartoons and movies. They were introduced to some real life veterans through pictures, song, and stories, and through the authors reading of the book.
Lee Avenue remembered the lives of those lost on September 11th by participating in the 3rd Annual National Anthem Sing-Along. Fifth grade students, Rachel F. and Jacqueline O., sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" while Mr. Frank Barbera, music teacher, played the music. Schools throughout the country at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, 10:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time, schools were invited to have their students and faculty sing the National Anthem. In addition, K-2 teachers read the book "The Giving Tree" and 3-5 teachers read "The Man Who Walked between the Towers."
