Second grade students at Reinhard Early Childhood Center in the Bellmore School District took to the stage for an enthusiastic show featuring songs about their favorite special area classes on Jan. 26. Several students dressed as teachers to take part in skits throughout the performance.
In Rising Star fashion, second grade leaders narrated the concert and introduced songs through their skits that showed how each special area teacher runs their class. Students garnered laughs and applause as they acted as librarian Mrs. Amorosso, music teacher Ms. Rocco, physical education teachers Mr. Bisk and Mr. DeBlasio and art teacher Mrs. Block.
Each song, performed under the direction of Ms. Rocco, transported the audience to each special area teacher’s classroom setting. The chorus sang “Music in Our School,” “Los Colores De La Vida,” “Put on Your Shoes,” and “The Library,” which had a special guest, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joseph Famularo, providing accompaniment with an electric guitar. Leading up to the concert, Dr. Famularo rehearsed with students, making for a truly memorable occasion during the performances. In addition, the Rising Stars had a great time enacting choreography for each song, making for an uplifting and exciting experience for the audience.
