“A Million Dreams” was the theme of this year’s kindergarten moving-up program at Northeast Elementary School on June 21. Kindergartners performed songs at morning and afternoon ceremonies for their families.

Principal Dr. Pauline Collins said that all songs were about dreams and aspirations including “Big Dreams,” “Get Fired Up,” “The Climb,” “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” and more. Students worked with their kindergarten teachers as well as music teacher Nicole Altamura to learn the lyrics and choreography.

Children performed on a stage flanked by rainbow balloon displays. Posters throughout the gymnasium had inspiration messages like “Everything starts with a dream” and “Keep calm and dream big.” 

Before each ceremony began, guests enjoyed a photo slideshow set to music featuring class photos and pictures of activities throughout the year. Dr. Collins had high praise for the students, who worked hard this year and completed the first step on their journey to becoming Amityville Memorial High School’s Class of 2031. 

“They are ready for first grade,” she said. “They’re reading and they’re writing. We are so proud of them.”

Northeast Elementary School hosted its annual pre-K Father’s Day picnic on June 7. Fathers, grandfathers, uncles and other family members were invited to participate in some hands-on activities.

Together, the children and their guests built birdhouses, played hopscotch and hula hoops, blew bubbles and enjoyed a picnic lunch.

Brightly colored tablecloths and floral centerpieces helped transform the cafeteria into a café at Northeast Elementary School on May 10. Pre-K students welcomed mothers, grandmothers, aunts, siblings and even a few fathers for the annual Mother’s Day.

Teacher Yvette Carman said that the tea is a long-standing tradition at the school as a way to show appreciation for the parents who do so much to support their children’s educations.

During the morning and afternoon programs, each of the four classes sang a special song for their mothers before a group performance of “Skidamarink.” Children then joined their special guests at the tables for snacks, iced tea and juice. They made gifts including cards, picture frames and artwork.
