In the weeks leading up to the holiday break, Floral Park-Bellerose School students and teachers were encouraged to beautify their classroom doors with festive holiday and winter decorations. The hallways transformed into a winter wonderland, with many designs inspired by classic holiday films like “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “The Polar Express” and “Elf.” Students and teachers alike enjoyed working on the designs together.

Members of the Floral Park–Bellerose Union Free School District Board of Education, administrators, teachers, students, family and friends gathered on the chilly evening of Dec. 9 to officially celebrate the completion of the Floral Park-Bellerose School Facilities Expansion Project with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Guests were welcomed to the outside courtyard of the new wing by Board President Laura Trentacoste and Superintendent Dr. Kathy Sottile, who gave thanks, praise and acknowledgements to all who have supported and championed the project since passing the bond referendum in 2018.

During the ceremonial agenda, Principal John DeKams spoke of the value and benefits of the 21st century learning environment for all students. A handful of students were invited to the podium to share their delight with the new enhanced space and classrooms.

Appropriately for the time of year, members of the student chorus entertained with songs “Winter Wonderland” and “Jingle Bell Rock.” Just prior to the outside festivities concluding, the principal, with large golden scissors in hand, asked members of the student council to assist him in cutting the ribbon. Everyone was then invited inside to enjoy refreshments and student led tours to see the new addition to our school firsthand.
