St. Demetrios Students See 'Disney On Ice'
Students in first and second grade classes at St. Demetrios Elementary School in Astoria attended a recent performance of "Disney On Ice" with tickets provided by Gazette Publisher Tony Barsamian. First grade teachers Helen Tsappos and Niki Kakkos and second grade teachers Jessica Sapienza and Lisa Giacolone had their pupils write thank-you notes and describe the most memorable part of the performance in a foray into drama criticism. Many students also conveyed their impressions through artwork as well. Principal Betsy Sideras forwarded the notes to the Gazette. Space considerations won't allow us to print all the letters- each of which we'd grade an A- but we share a representative sampling with our readers.
