Second graders in the Rising Star Chorus at Reinhard Early Childhood Center in the Bellmore Public School District dazzled their peers during their space-themed concert on May 19.

The second grade Rising Star Chorus, led by music teacher Joanna Rocco, performed catchy songs that featured choreographed moves in fancy outfits. They sang songs that were out of this world, including “I Think My School’s a Spaceship,” “Sky Full of Stars,” “I Don’t Want to Live on the Moon,” and “Planet Rock.” Choreography was coordinated by Mallory Aronoff, while Michelle Block assisted second graders in creating solar system art that was displayed throughout the auditorium.

Students throughout Reinhard Early Childhood Center in the Bellmore Public School District marked Earth Day with songs, a commitment to live green and by planting fresh greenery on April 20.

Kindergarteners and first and second graders each gathered in the auditorium with their classmates, joined by their families and loved ones who excitedly cheered them on. Rising Star Leaders sang songs about the importance of caring for our environment and recited the Earth Day Pledge in which they promised to “keep our land clean.”

Second grade students then went outside to help beautify Reinhard with a new tree. Adding a new tree on Earth Day is an annual tradition for second graders, and select students had the opportunity to participate by laying a shovel-full of dirt on top of its roots. Students in pre-kindergarten also potted flowers and plants in the school courtyard. The new greenery will act as a daily reminder of the importance of living an environmentally-friendly life.
