GYMNASTICS-FUND RAISING

Although the girls are preparing for post season competition, the varsity gymnastics team took time out of practice to participate in "Cartwheel for a Cure" , a fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  The girls performed as many cartwheels as they could in three minutes. Quite a dizzying experience indeed, but knowing they were once again giving to those in need made it all worthwhile. The girls raised $315 for their 625 cartwheels.
What made it even a more special event was knowing that the money raised was being donated in the names of the 4 and 6 year old daughters of one of our own Nassau County coaches who are unfortunately are fighting this genetic lung disorder.

 HICKSVILLE GYMNASTICS
 
For the fourth consecutive year, the Hicksville girls' gymnastics team has "adopted" a child from the Lexibean Foundation. This is a nonprofit organization founded by parents whose children lost their battle with cancer. 
As "Lexies Elves", the girls buy the toys and items that are on the child's wish list to help the family's Christmas be a little brighter and make some small dreams come true. The girls support and generosity certainly help to make a difference for a family battling the emotional and financial strain of pediatric cancer!
Congratulations girls on demonstrating the true spirit of Christmas.

EVENT AT MIDDLE SCHOOL 
"WALK FOR A CAUSE: DOWN SYNDROME" - HEALTH DEPT.

111    112     113     1114    1115    1116    1117

This fall the Hicksville Middle School Health department conducted its 5th annual "Walk for a Cause."  Event coordinator Anthony Tussie says "This was a tremendous opportunity to unite as a school community and to bring awareness and "do for" others."  This years theme was Down Syndrome Awareness.   Over $900.00 was raised for ACDS (Association for Children with Down Syndrome) located in Plainview. 

Students in grades 6,7,8 walked the middle school track during health classes and Physical Education classes.  

Here are what some eighth grade student participants had to say.

Scott Rothmann
"The walk for Down Syndrome was a good thing to catch the attention of people driving and walking by.  To see us, the students of HMS walking for a cause will hopefully put the idea of donating to a charity in their heads.  If all schools do this, then many more people will contribute.

Alejandro Gonzalez
"The walk brought our school together for a cause and it makes us feel like a community."

Nirpee Patel
"The walk was amazing! I loved walking because I wanted to help raise awarenss and show that this school cares about Down Syndrome."

Ethan Bellomo
"You know you are helping someone else which should make you feel good."

Ariya Bakhteri
"I enjoyed the walk because I knew that I was doing a good thing by walking and spreading awareness.  I felt good about myself knowing I was contributing to a cause.
