  • What is Bucket Filling?

    We all carry an invisible bucket in which we keep our good feelings. When our buckets are full, we are happy; when they are empty, we are sad. It is important to know that we can fill our own bucket and we can dip into it. Please click on the title to read more about our new "Bucket Fillers" program at Lee Avenue.

  • 2nd Grade Gives Thanks

    The second grade at Lee Avenue has so much to be thankful for. Each student was given a feather and time to reflect with their families. The students and their families designed and decorated the feather with all the things they are thankful for this season. With that, the final masterpiece is Lee Avenue's mascot turkey for the holiday. You would be amazed at the gratitude show by the youngsters in grade two. All the Best for a Happy, Healthy Thanksgiving!

  • For your Information:

    According to the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Council on School Health, parents should be encouraged to dress children in multiple light layers.  In any weather, small children should typically wear one layer more than an adult would wear.

    We urge all students to be mindful of these precautions and take measures to ensure their well-being during these cold and challenging winter days
