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 January to Romy P. of Mrs. Sommerhalter's class..
Sparky, the team mascot for the New York Islanders, and the Islanders arena hostess spoke to the students about "Teamwork." The assembly stressed the importance of making smart decisions, eating healthy, staying active and teamwork. Sparky helped students realize why being committed to making smart decisions is important in school and life.
Lee Avenue held its annual Spelling Bee Contest. Students in grades 4 and 5 competed in the contest. Congratulations to our 1st place winner Anna J. in Mr. Moshoyannis's class, and our 2nd place winner Eesha C. in Ms. McMorrow's class. Anna will be competing at Hofstra University for the final local Spelling Bee Contest of Long Island. Good Luck Anna!

This week the fourth grade students visited the Gregory Museum. The curators of the museum taught them about the history of the building and then they went on a scavenger hunt throughout the first floor to explore all of the amazing specimens of rocks, minerals and fossils on display. The children also had the opportunity to conduct experiments with different rocks and minerals.
