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 a bucket filler at home, at school and everywhere else. Students are developing good character skills with our Bucket Filler Program. Congratulations to Trishna M. from Mrs. Morgans's class for being "bucket filler" for the month of April.
Lee Avenue has created a special bench to make sure no students are left out on the playground. Called the “Buddy Bench,” students can use the seat as a safe and supportive place to let others know they’d like to be included in playtime, but may be too shy to ask. The concept of the Buddy Bench is simple: Students who want to partake in playground games and activities, but may feel hesitant, can take a seat, which signifies to the "buddy bench monitors" on the playground that they may need an extra boost to participate. The buddy bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. Let's spread the message of inclusion and kindness!
In honor of Autism Awareness month the Staff and students at Lee Avenue will wear blue every Friday in April. Autism Awareness Month is a time to educate our community about autism and Light It Up Blue! Spreading autism awareness in schools is a great way to celebrate April and promote inclusion and acceptance in the classroom and beyond.
The students at Lee Avenue had a great time bringing out their “inner artists” when Ruby’s Parties came to visit. Ruby, the artist specifically created a painting for each session during the Kids Paint Party. Grades kindergarten and first painted a Minion - each one being unique and special. The second and third grade painted a dog. Each dog was formed from the same shapes although the students individualized them in a wonderful way. The fourth grade painted a penguin and the fifth grade painted a lion. These paintings had such a personalized effect that the adults were amazed. Each student was creative with their interpretation of the object therefore each painting had its own flair. The students had fun experimenting with the colors to create their masterpiece. The parents and teachers watched in admiration as the students worked so diligently. A fantastic time was has by all. Click on the photo gallery to see the children's artwork.
