Hundreds of students in Valley Stream District 30 were welcomed and ushered into their respective schools on Sept. 1, ready to take on their new leading roles. It was a day filled with action as pre-kindergarteners through sixth graders met their new teachers and participated in fun first-day activities.

At Shaw Avenue Elementary School, for example, Global Leaders of Tomorrow gathered in the gymnasium as they engaged in a team building activity to strengthen their collaboration skills. Students toured with their classes at Clear Stream Avenue Elementary School to visit the school librarians, art, music and physical education teachers, as well as other specialty staff to get acclimated to their new roles and routines. In Naomi Yochai’s kindergarten class at Forest Road Elementary School, students read “The King of Kindergarten” and “The Queen of Kindergarten” by Derrick Barnes and Vanessa Brantley-Newton before fashioning themselves as kings and queens in individual artwork.

The school year will be filled with a variety of lessons and activities which allow our Global Leaders of Tomorrow to take action as they find meaningful ways to communicate, collaborate, think critically and create with compassion.
