Pre-kindergartners at Northeast Elementary School in Amityville learned all about patriotism when Naval Chief Josh Candon visited the school on Jan. 27.

Mr. Candon spoke about his current role in the U.S. Navy and how he has visited almost 30 countries during his years of service. This special presentation was part of Northeast’s Community Helpers program, in which students learn about first responders and different types of people who serve the community and country. Students also sang “My Country Tis of Thee,” to Mr. Candon to show their patriotism.

The Amityville School District thanks Mr. Candon for his service and for taking the time to meet with the district’s youngest learners.

On Jan. 21, 18-year-old author Devin Moore visited students at Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School in Amityville to share his new book, “Devin Speaks Up.”

“Devin Speaks Up” is a children’s antibullying book about Moore’s bullying experience. Through speaking up about the bullying, Moore later founded Race To Speak Up, an antibullying organization that works to educate youth about bullying prevention, how to be upstanders and the importance of mental health.

Park Avenue students gathered in the school’s auditorium where Moore shared his personal experience of being bullied and how he dealt with pain and sadness. All of the students received a copy of Moore’s book, which were donated by Optimum/Altice USA. Moore conducted a readalong with students as they discussed the importance of being comfortable in their own skin, speaking up a trusted person about being bullied, the importance of kindness, and he encouraged kids to be upstanders for each other.

“Even though we all look different and act different, we’re all beautiful and we can unite through our differences,” Moore said. “We need to embrace each other’s differences in a world that includes all kinds of people from all walks of life.”
