Our family is so blessed to have had ACDS in our daughter Jenny's life.  The wonderful beginning, at 3mos. old, helped to make her the beautiful and talented person she is today. 

Jenny graduated from ACDS in 1988 and was active in the Five Plus and Summer Camp Adventure for several years after graduation.  She also Danced with ACDS at Lincoln Center Alice Tully Hall in March of 2012. 

Jenny now is the Captain of the FREE Players Drum Line and has performed in Disney World, the NYC Columbus Day Parade, the WGI at the University of Dayton in Ohio, the DCI in Allentown, Pa and will participate for the third year in the Newsday Marching Band Festival at Mitchell Field, this October 19, 2015.  Jenny also continues to be active in the FREE Players Broadway productions each year, this year she is working back stage in the production of The Wizard of Oz.  Jenny also plays lead guitar in her programs rock band called The Monkey Puppets and teaches beginner guitar to others in her program.

Jenny also has been an Altar server for the past 17 years at our parish, St. Martin of Tours in Bethpage.  She loves to travel with her Mom and Dad in their Motor Home and has been to 46 states with them.  She is an experienced "Cruiser" and has been on five cruises, two without her parents.  Jenny lives at home with her Mom and Dad in Bethpage.
