“A Million Dreams” was the theme of this year’s kindergarten moving-up program at Northeast Elementary School on June 21. Kindergartners performed songs at morning and afternoon ceremonies for their families.

Principal Dr. Pauline Collins said that all songs were about dreams and aspirations including “Big Dreams,” “Get Fired Up,” “The Climb,” “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” and more. Students worked with their kindergarten teachers as well as music teacher Nicole Altamura to learn the lyrics and choreography.

Children performed on a stage flanked by rainbow balloon displays. Posters throughout the gymnasium had inspiration messages like “Everything starts with a dream” and “Keep calm and dream big.” 

Before each ceremony began, guests enjoyed a photo slideshow set to music featuring class photos and pictures of activities throughout the year. Dr. Collins had high praise for the students, who worked hard this year and completed the first step on their journey to becoming Amityville Memorial High School’s Class of 2031. 

“They are ready for first grade,” she said. “They’re reading and they’re writing. We are so proud of them.”
