On Thursday, June 23, 2016 our fifth graders attended their moving up ceremony with all their family members in attendance. It was a proud moment for all! We know you will all do great things in the future and we look forward to hearing about them. We will miss you all! Have a great Summer!
Students at Lee Avenue are bucket fillers! Each month we acknowledge students for being "bucket fillers". During the school year we are encouraging, reminding and recognizing everyone's efforts to be bucket fillers at home, at school and everywhere else. Students are developing good character skills with our bucket filler program. This month our bucket filler is Ryan K. who is in Mrs. Brinkmann's class. Congratulations Ryan!
Students in grades 1-5 from across Long Island as well as in City schools, participated in The World Food Day Essay Contest. The topic was "How Can We Inspire People to Stop World Hunger?" We are proud to announce that three of our students took top honors! Anna V. from Ms. D'Antonio's class won first place and a $100 prize. Felicity B. also from Ms. D'Antonio's class won second place and Zahel N. from Ms. Kelly's class won honorable mention. Congratulations!
Ms. Kolinsky transformed her art classroom into an art museum for the week of Expo and created a visual literacy lesson for the students in grades 2-5. The students walked around the classroom with clipboards and a handout that asked students to write about the artwork they liked the best. They needed to describe in detail what they liked about the artwork, who the artist was and what the medium of the artwork was. This was a great opportunity for the students to learn how to visually read and analyze the art projects by writing about them.
Lee Avenue students enjoyed an assembly featuring singer JLine and the JLine dance crew, who shared an anti-bullying message through song, dance, and speaking to the audience about their experiences with being bullied or befriending someone who was being bullied when they were in school.
Fourth Grade students participated in a national math competition titled Noetic Learning Math Contest (NLMC). The purpose of the contest is to inspire young students' interest in math and convey the message, "It is COOL to be good at math!" Congratulations to our winner Peter B.
