  • Hicksville's Hometown Heroes

    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.

  • Yes! Yes! Yes! The Islanders Arrived at Lee Avenue!Please click the link on the left to view the Islanders at Lee you tube video.

    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!

  • Hour of Code

    In recognition of Computer Science week (December 4 - December 10) students are doing Hour of Code during their computer lab classes. Pictured is Mrs. McGahan's kindergarten class playing Kodable! They did a great job and they learned some fundamental skills in how to build a computer game by moving the characters around the computer screen using arrows. We encourage the children to keep trying Hour of Code in school as well as at home.

  • Fifth grade students wrote poems based on the themes of Wonder

    This school year, the fifth graders have been reading the novel Wonder, which is a realistic fiction story about a boy with severe facial differences who attends school for the first time in 5th grade. Our students have been thoroughly engaged in discussions about the importance of choosing kind, one of the precepts described in the book. Several of the students wrote shape poems with a theme of kindness, which are displayed outside the All Purpose Room. As part of the multidisciplinary unit, the fifth grade classes went to see the movie Wonder on its opening day, and enthusiastically compared and contrasted it with the novel. It has been a truly "wonder-ful" experience to be immersed in this story
