BCCA would like to thank the Hagan-Kavanagh Irish School of Dance for joining us at Anna House today. Our students spent the morning creating their own St. Patrick's Day hats and then got to finish off their day with an amazing dance performance! Wishing you St. Patrick's Day luck on finding your own Pot of Gold from all of us at Anna House.
In honor of one of BCCA's favorite author's, Dr. Seuss, the children celebrated his birthday today by reading his books, sampling green eggs and ham, and creating their own Cat in the Hat top hats!
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!
BCCA is proud to announce the start of our new Women's Literacy Program. The program meets every Tuesday at Anna House and is open to all the mothers of BCCA students wishing to improve their English speaking skills. We would like to thank the New York Women's Foundation for helping us make this amazing opportunity possible!
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!
