Students and staff at Lee Avenue celebrated 100 days of school on Wednesday, February 14th. Students were engaged in different mathematical activities throughout the day. They were treated to a special "100th Day" song, performed by Anna A., Michael B., Angelina G., and Dylan M. Thank you to our music teacher, Mr. Barbera, for acccompanying the singers and composing the lyrics. Click the link to the left to see the video.
Every month we choose a student who exemplifies the characteristics of a great bucket filler. These characteristics include showing kindness, respect, thoughtfulness and good will towards all, at home, at school and in the community. This month we chose Riley B. from Ms. Brinkmann's class. Congratulations Riley!
Thanks to all our music teachers, Mr. Mike Caruso, Mr. Frank Barbera and Mr. Richard Enderle, and to all our participating students for a beautiful concert. We want to especially thank Mr. Barbera for writing a beautiful song in honor of Dr. DeNaro called "We Believe in You" performed by the fourth and fifth grade chorus! Pictured is our new orchestra teacher, Mr. Richard Enderle with his students.
HGCA once again adopted four families within our community through a Toy Drive which was made possible by the efforts of the Community Service Committee, chaired by Christina Mirro and Joan Goessmann. By the generous donations of our members, we were able to bring holiday cheer to 13 children. These donations were delivered to the Lee Avenue Elementary School in hopes to bring a happy holiday season to these families. The mission of Hicksville Gardens Civic Association aims to improve the quality of life for the Hicksville community by encouraging community awareness, participation, and civic pride.
It's the Season of Giving and Lee Avenue wanted to "give thanks and recognition" to Hicksville's Hometown Heroes. Students, staff, and community members sent in photographs of their relatives who were or currently are members of the:military, police force or fire department. The photos were then laminated and backed and hung on a tree in the lobby of the school. The decorated tree acknowledges the efforts of these brave men and women and serves as a constant reminder of all they do for the community.
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 winners Anusha S., Aaron F. and Noah K.
Lee Avenue was fortunate enough to be selected as one of the winners of an island-wide essay contest where schools were asked to write about how they demonstrate teamwork and community spirit. The winning schools across Long Island were rewarded with an assembly featuring NY Islanders players. On Tuesday, November 14th, the students and staff of Lee Avenue were treated to an unforgettable visit from Andrew Ladd and Johnny Boychuk. These players visited the school to speak with students about bullying, health and nutrition, and teamwork. They also graciously signed autographs for the students and staff. The players were greeted by hundreds of students dressed in team colors or jerseys with handmade signs. They asked the players meaningful questions and were memorized by the responses and sincerity. This day is one that Lee Avenue will NEVER forget!
