Expo, which was held on May 21st, once again proved to be one of the most enjoyable events of the school year. With the theme of Night at the Burns Avenue Museum, Expo featured exhibits and hands-on activities about topics that had been studied during the year. Students and their families toured the school's classrooms and corridors, which had magically been turned into a museum through the efforts of the Burns Avenue staff. Kindergarten classes contained displays dealing with animal life and First Grade classrooms were transformed into an exhibit about the four seasons. Second Grade classrooms contained displays and activities about fairy tales and Third Grade classrooms contained exhibits and hands-on activities about inventors and inventions. The Fourth and Fifth Grade classes were filled with displays about the world of mathematics. There were also exhibits about Long Island and the Art Room contained some of the beautiful work that was created during the year. Projects that were completed by students in the RISE Program were also on display in the Library, along with a presentation by some of the students who were dressed up in Civil War costumes. Students also had the opportunity to work out using the Wii Program in the gymnasium.
Thanks are extended to the staff of Burns Avenue for their efforts in making Expo such a wonderful evening for our students and their families. Everyone agreed that their visit to the Burns Avenue Museum was one of the year's highlights.
