It’s Not Easy Being Green


Second-grade chorus members at Charles A. Reinhard Early Childhood Center in Bellmore serenaded parents, family members, administrators, and fellow students during their Rising Star choral performance. Dressed in their best green clothing, to go along with the “Being Green” theme, the students recited facts about the environment and their favorite fictional green characters, such as Oscar the Grouch, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Kermit the Frog. The 130-member chorus, the largest in the school’s history, sang songs such as “It’s Not Easy Being Green,” and “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.”

To conclude the program, the musicians lined the aisles to perform a student-choreographed danced number to “I’m a Believer” from the Shrek trilogy.
