Lynbrook’s littlest graduates proudly took the stage at Lynbrook High School during their Kindergarten Center graduation on June 20. Students were dressed in their class colors as they celebrated the milestone in their young lives.
The ceremony opened with a student performance of “It’s a Small World” which followed by remarks from Principal Ellen Postman.
“All of your children’s laughter, bright smiles and kindness have turned the Kindergarten Center into its own small world,” she said.
With the guidance of their teachers, including music teacher Madeline Jabin, the students performed a choral poem titled “Kindergarten” and several other songs in front of loved ones, central administration, board of education members and faculty. These included “The Star Spangled Banner,” “Circle of Friends,” “This Little Light of Mine” and “The World is a Rainbow.” Special recognition for upcoming retiree Joan Kocher, a teacher for 20 years at the Kindergarten Center, was held during the ceremony by members of the Parents Club and Principal Postman for Kocher’s dedicated service to the students of Lynbrook.
Before announcing the graduating class of 2018, the soon-to-be first graders performed “Time to Say Good-Bye” and “I Am a Promise” as they prepared to take the next step in their educational journey. One by one, classes took a bow on stage at the conclusion of the ceremony as family and friends cheered for their graduates.
