Students at Lee Avenue Elementary School in Hicksville are displaying acts of kindness with the help of some elves this holiday season. All grade levels took part in the Acts of Kindness Elf Contest. Students chose an elf to color and decorate, while writing an act of kindness on the front.
A winner was chosen at each grade level for their design and message. The winning elves will be displayed on the school’s “Giving Tree” located in the main lobby. Winners also chose a stuffed animal from the tree to take home.
Congratulations to the following students:
- Kindergarten- Sophia Gallo
- 1st grade- Mark Ridgwell
- 2nd grade- Gurleen Toor
- 3rd grade- Gabriella Fortini
- 4th grade- Ethan Kim
- 5th grade- Angelia Fortini
The Acts of Kindness Elf contest is part of the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, a school-wide initiative to reduce bullying and make schools a more positive place to learn and develop.
