The Faculty, Staff, Parents and Community of the Sycamore Avenue School will strive to provide the foundation necessary to develop each child’s academic and personal growth.
Cooperatively, we, as a nurturing and inclusive partnership, will continually work to develop responsible citizens who demonstrate an enthusiasm for learning and respect for themselves and others.
Sycamore Avenue School’s Belief Statements
We believe that:
Children will learn best, when they feel best.
Education is the shared responsibility of the school, the family and the community.
All children have the right to a nurturing and safe environment.
Respect for self, property and others is necessary for learning.
A well-rounded education includes contributing to one’s community.
Second graders in Rachel White’s music
class at Sycamore Avenue Elementary School are busy year-round,
spreading song around their school and community. The students perform
at the school’s monthly PTA meetings and also visit their “grandfriends”
across the street at The Arbors Assisted Living Communities at Bohemia
every month or two.
White refers to all of these performances as
“informances,” to suggest those which are informal and informative.
According to her, “we do not look for perfection, but seek to teach
about what we do in music class. Students sing, play instruments and
dance, all of which are things we do every week.” In fact, the students’
“grandfriends” visit the school once a week to join in the fun of music
class with the children.
At the February PTA meeting, the second
graders dazzled their proud parents with Valentine’s Day songs and
poems, a song about Martin Luther King Jr., and a seasonal suite of folk
tunes. The next week, on Valentine’s Day, they crossed the street to
The Arbors to offer their “grandfriends” the same repertoire, along with
handmade Valentine’s Day cards.
