Once again, thank you to the United Cerebral Palsey Association of Nassau County (UCPN) for taking the time to visit with our students today. They gave our students an overview of their services and patiently answered our students' questions. They also reminded students that the Trivia Challenge will be held at our school on Thursday, November 30th at 5PM. This Trivia Challenge is sponsored by UCPN. We were so honored to be the recipient of the first place trophy last year and we are looking forward to participating in this year's Trivia contest. More information will be given shortly.
The second annual Jump Rope for Heart event for 1st through 3rd graders was a huge success! So far the students have raised over 2,000 dollars towards the American Heart Association. The students did an outstanding job exercising while raising awareness for a great cause.
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!
To eliminate congestion by the main entrance at Lee Avenue during dismissal please consider parking and entering the school from alternate entrances such as the gate on 8th street in the front right side of the building, or the back gate on 6th street /Felice Crescent Street or the back gate on Lee Avenue.

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 Keyri D. from Ms. Franz's class. Congratulations Keyri !
On Friday, October 13th, the faculty, staff and students wore matching t-shirts to show support and solidarity for Dr. Edward Denaro. In fact, faculty and staff in other buildings throughout the district wore the shirts as well. Dr. Denaro is a physical education teacher at Lee Avenue where he has taught for over twenty years. In August, Dr. Denaro experienced a life altering accident that has paralyzed him. He possesses both physical strength and inner strength that others strive for. He is HICKSVILLE STRONG!
October 2nd was Blue Shirt Day which is also known as World Day of Bullying Prevention. The faculty and students wore blue to pledge to be upstanders and not bystanders. Lee Avenue recognizes the importance of celebrating people's differences and being a Bully Free school. The blue shirt was symbolic of our unity.
