Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with flair

110116_main.jpg

The Amityville Union Free School District concluded its month-long celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month with a trio of evening celebrations at the three elementary schools. During the week of Oct. 17-21, festivities took place at Northeast, Northwest and Park Avenue.

Northwest Elementary School welcomed singer Raffi Caballero who performed a variety of songs, as well as a zumba instructor. Guests danced the salsa, merengue and bachata before eating dinner. Students from the National Junior Honor Society at Edmund W. Miles Middle School volunteered their time.

At Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School, audience members sat at table representing different Latin American nations and noshed on chips and salsa as they were entertained and educated. Students portrayed famous Latin Americans such as Roberto Clemente, Oscar de la Hoya and Selena Gomez. They also showed flags from Spanish-speaking countries and shared facts about those nations.

Following a musical performance, guests were treated to a buffet dinner featuring empanadas, rice, beans, chicken, pork and more.

“This was an opportunity for our students to celebrate their cultures and share information with their friends, family and neighbors,” said Park Avenue Principal Robyn Santiago. “It was all about the kids and bringing the school community together.”

Character matters at Northwest

At Northwest Elementary School, good character matters. First- through third-grade students in the Amityville Union Free School District spent a week learning about the positive behavioral traits they should display at school and in all aspects of their lives.

For Spirit Week, from Oct. 17-21, children were asked to wear a different color each day for the different pillars of character: yellow for respect, blue for trustworthiness, orange for fairness, green for responsibility and red for caring. The students learned to be tolerant of others, help people in need, consider the consequences of their actions, play by the rules and have the courage to do the right thing.

In art, each class made a friendship flower. Art teacher Lydia Robinson had every child design a pedal. Using markers, crayons and pencils, they wrote their name and a friendly message, and made a drawing. The pedals were then arranged to form a flower and laminated. Each class will keep the poster for the rest of the year as a reminder of the spirit of collaboration.

Ms. Robinson also read them two anti-bullying books, “Stick and Stone,” and “Playgrond Push Around.”




Coming together to celebrate Hispanic culture

Students old and young from the Amityville Union Free School District came together on Sept. 30 to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.

Members of Amityville Memorial High School’s Hispanic Heritage Club performed a variety of dance routines at Northwest Elementary School, delighting the first-, second- and third-graders who cheered and clapped along. The high school students began with a flag dance, a choreographed performance featuring the flags of countries with large Hispanic populations. That followed with several Latin dances including the Bachata, Merengue and Cumbia.

Northwest will hold an evening Hispanic Heritage Month celebration for students and their parents on Oct. 19 featuring Latin food, music and dance.
