On Friday, Sept. 16, the K.A. Deasy Elementary School PTA hosted its annual Welcome Back Picnic. This large scale event is a great opportunity for students and their families to reconnect at the beginning of the school year and celebrate our school spirit.
The weather was beautiful and our Olympic Theme “Go for the Gold” was a huge success. The PTA provided free hotdogs, lemonade, Italian ices, cotton candy and popcorn while the children were busy playing games to earn gold medals and getting temporary tattoos and faces painted.
Thank you to all who came out to enjoy the afternoon and for all the volunteers who made it possible. A big thank you to the Glen Cove Movie Theater for their generous donation of popcorn and to Darcy Belyea for donating her fantastic hot dog cart and serving 300 hot dogs to the kids and their families. Thanks to Mr. Mike Battaglia and his company All Star Party for providing the DJ music and cotton candy and to Angela Zupa for providing us with the sports equipment for our Olympic events. Sincere thanks to the DECA High School Students and other High School Volunteers who worked our sports events and craft booths and lastly, a special thank you to the Middle School and Deasy School Custodians who helped us with set up and clean up.
The PTA could not function without the support of our parents, administration, faculty and staff who make all this possible each and every time there is an event. Your time and dedication is second to none and you are appreciated more than you know. Thank you to all who volunteered your time.
