This summer, students at Park Avenue Elementary School in Amityville had an opportunity to participate in a Book Fair with student volunteers from Amityville Memorial High School.

The books that were a part of the fair were donated and students got to choose which books they might be interested in and read them over the summer. The high school’s student volunteers, who are members of the Warrior Nation club, welcomed their younger peers off the bus in the morning, read to the students in the library, assisted the teachers throughout the day and helped out during dismissal.

Some of the students that volunteered aspire to become educators as a career for the future. Park Avenue’s Book Fair was a great way for them to get an idea of what it would be like to work with students and help out with teachers and staff.

(JUNE 2022)—Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School held an orientation for incoming third-graders from Northwest Elementary School to familiarize the students with the campus prior to the start of the 2022-2023 school year. Park Avenue School Counselor Kimberly Balducci presented a slide show about the school. The slide show introduced students to school programs, events, and what to expect next year.

“Transitioning into a new school can be really challenging for students,” said Ms. Balducci. “Orientations like this allow the incoming students to become familiar with the school and hopefully lessen some of the stress they might be feeling about entering a new environment.”

The soon-to-be Memorial students were able to meet some of the current Memorial third graders who spoke about their favorite activities and gave them some words of wisdom. The second-graders were then allowed to ask questions. Their trip ended with a school tour guided by Park Avenue students.
