In an effort to encourage kindergarten and first-grade parents to reinforce literacy and math skills with their children during the summer months, Northeast Elementary School held a prime time family summer event that include a Title I workshop for parents and a series of different games and activities for young students. Word building skills, journal writing, and fun math games were among the activities promoted at various stations assembled in the school gymnasium. Students also had the opportunity to create and take home bug jars, enjoy a giant fun slide and participate in peaceful playground exercises using new games created on the blacktop area.

Hot dogs, sweet potato fries and refreshments were served. Northeast librarian Tina Smith coordinated the event. Information on the Amityville Public Library summer reading program was also available.
