Northwest Elementary School in Amityville has recently collaborated with members of the Calvary Chapel of Hope to create a Leadership Club, allowing students to shine as leaders.  

Calvary Chapel members Pastor Jeff Cole and Mrs. Angie Christian along with Northwest social worker Ms. Debra Lee developed this club to let students know that we are all leaders. “Do not let anyone think less of you because you are young,” Pastor Jeff Cole said. “Be an example to everyone in what you say, how you live, how you treat and trust others, and what enters your mind.” 

The group, which meets biweekly, discussed the five rules of leadership: 

1. Leaders do what is right, even when no one is watching. 
2. Leaders lead by example. They do everything they expect others to do. 
3. Leaders speak the truth. 
4. Leaders treat others how they want to be treated. They are respectful to everyone. 
5. Leaders work and do their best.

First graders in Meredith Cohen's class at Northwest Elementary School in Amityville spent several days learning about Hanukkah before it started at sundown on Dec. 18.

On the first day of Hanukkah, Ms. Cohen taught students how to play dreidel. Instead of playing with gelt (chocolate coins), they used their math cubes. Every year, Ms. Cohen’s mother makes upwards of 50 latkes with their family recipe, which has been passed down for years to bring to school for the students and staff.

The students tasted the latkes, and some dipped them in applesauce. Students had fun learning about the traditions and celebrations of Hanukkah and always enjoyed asking Ms. Cohen questions about how her family celebrates this holiday.
