Lee Road Get.A.Voice Kickoff
Although outside the weather was rainy and grey, inside the Lee Road Elementary School gym school spirit was bright and shiny! Our students and staff happily kicked off the tenth year of the Get.A.Voice program. Most people marked the occasion by dressing in their Get.A.Voice shirts or our school colors. The students were thrilled when Sparky the Dragon (the NY Islanders' mascot) and his friend showed up! They spoke to the students about teamwork, which is this year's Get.A.Voice theme. The children were engaged and had lots of fun! Afterward, Mr. Goss, the principal, explained how teamwork is actually an important part of our lives in different ways, both at home and at school. He led the staff as they recited the Get.A.Voice pledge, promising to use their voices in a kind way and to be up-standers. Back in the classrooms, the students had the opportunity to take the pledge, also.
Lessons and activities about teamwork will take place throughout the year.
