Kreamer Street Elementary Hosts "Welcome Party"

Mr. Sean Clark, Principal of Kreamer Street Elementary School in the South Country Central School District once again hosted a “Welcome Party”.   Over a hundred students, parents, relatives, teachers and friends spent the evening at Kreamer Street sharing delicious food and activities from many different cultures.

Children and their families were welcomed with profound rhythm and beat thanks to the Boys and Girls Club Steel Drummers.  Some of the dishes included Vegetable Pilau with Raita, Papusas, Spanish Rice, Pizza, Eggplant Parmigana, Bread pudding, Latin Roast Pork, Perogis and  Kielbasa and sauerkraut.  Children and their families had an opportunity to learn and make cultural crafts such as, making Guatemalan Worry Dolls, Mandalas, Jianzi (a Chinese  Hacky Sack), African quilting, Mexican Hot Chocolate and the popular pizza dough station. The staff at Kreamer Street was especially  vital in making this evening such a success by organizing the event, setting and cleaning up as well as providing numerous donations.  In addition, students from the  Bellport High School program Future Teachers of America came down to lend a hand at the craft stations.  An evening of fun, learning and friendship was enjoyed by all.
