The members of the Mineola Junior Fire Department took its annual trip to Lake George to enjoy the sites, fun parks and have just a plain good time.
The department stood at the Depe Dene waterfront lodge. Everyone enjoyed the rides and attractions at the Great Escape Amusement and Water Park. At the resort, the juniors had a chance to swim and relax at the resort’s beach, which has paddle boats, row boats, and canoes.
Some of members even did some fishing with a few catches. During the week, Mineola rented a speedboat and a deck boat so members could do water tubing. Juniors enjoyed bumper car rides, laser tag and go-carting at the Adventure Racing Park.

A group of fourth-graders at Jackson Avenue School were recently inspired to build a nature habitat after reading the article “Schoolyard Alive!” by Anna Mearns. The group of approximately 16 students decided to clean up the school’s “Quiet Zone,” a place where students can go during recess who just want to read a book or have a few quiet moments in between their play.
The cleanup, supervised by teachers, was also an opportunity for students to learn about gardening and different types of weeds and plants. The group has already volunteered six of their recess periods to clean up the space and will continue to clean it through the remainder of the year. They are even hoping to host a few fundraisers in order to raise money to purchase a butterfly bush and birdbath for the space.
The Kornreich Early Learning Center held its 6th annual graduation ceremony June 12 at the Jackson Avenue School. Councilman Ferrara and Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel came and gave out certificates.
The children performed the Pledge of Allegiance and sang “One Love” by Bob Marley, and “You are my Sunshine.”
Mr. and Mrs. Kornreich gave out two books to each child for graduating. Thirty students graduated this year and got a great start to their educational journey. Teacher Divya Narvekar said she is very proud of them.
Everyone was out at Wilson Park for Meadow Drive School’s annual field day celebration. The day featured face painting, an egg toss, a potato sack race and much more. Students took a break from the fun only to enjoy the lunch organized by Meadow Drive’s PTA.
