Students Receive Warm Welcome
on the First Day of School

“Miss Lorraine!” Christopher, a student at The Children’s Center screamed happily.

“Welcome back my sweet boy,” Teacher Miss Lorraine beamed.

Students excitedly began their first day of school at The Children’s Center on September 5th. The little scholars spent the morning becoming acquainted with their new teachers and fellow students.

Gabby, a pre-schooler, giggled as Miss Lorraine introduced herself to the adorable little girl.“The first day can be a little overwhelming for children, but as the day goes on they become much more comfortable,” she explained.

Assistant Principal Rose Brown smiled and waved to students as she walked down the halls. “The first day of school is always an amazing day,” she declared. “We look forward to watching our students thrive this school year.”

Stephen H. Friedman, President & CEO of UCP of Long Island cheerfully greeted students and distributed chocolate bars to all of the teachers. “The Children’s Center has an excellent staff that is dedicated to ensuring that each child has a chance at a bright future,” he said. “I have no doubt that today marks the beginning of a great school year.”
