Happy Valentine's Day

Teaching our students to give back and show compassion to one another has always been important to all of us here at BCCA, so this Valentine's Day all our students sent handmade cards from the heart to the children of the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island

To continue the Valentine's Day celebrations the parents joined us at Anna House for a party and crafts with their children. They made collages and paintings and were able to document the festivities by taking pictures in the "selfie frame" the children made!

Crafts and Story time at Barnes & Noble!

Thank you to Barnes & Noble for hosting the Anna House K-Prep students today for crafts and story time! The kids started the morning off decorating Christmas ornaments, which will be presented to the Ronald Mcdonald House of Long Island. The highlight of the trip was story time with our Chairman, Michael Dubb and President, Libby Imperio. Before heading back to Anna House, BCCA provided each child with a new holiday book and a few other treats!

"The Bear Ate Your Sandwich"

On Thursday, October 27, we participated in Jumpstart's Read for the Record, a national campaign that was launched over a decade ago to address the educational inequities that leave too many children unprepared for kindergarten. This year our volunteer Marybeth read the book, "The Bear Ate Your Sandwich" by Julia Sarcone-Roach, as part of the world’s largest shared reading experience. The K-prep classroom took the campaign a step further by preparing their own tea sandwiches and making bear ears.
