During a special assembly at Waverly Park Elementary School in the Lynbrook Public School District, students were taken on a journey through imaginative terrains to learn a lesson about kindness on Sept. 22.

It was an exciting search for the “Key of Kindness” in the gymnasium as students gathered to join the program hosted by Mobile Ed Productions. Through varying areas including mountains and caves, students were challenged to learn practical skills to identify emotions, manage stress and solve problems. Students were invited to find and open numerous treasures containing items that helped them complete their journey. The final legendary treasure unlocked what it means for students to be kind to those around them. Each stop on the journey included lessons about empathy, respect, coping mechanisms and how to stand up against bullying. Every student in the audience had the opportunity to move and groove along with each step.

Middle schoolers in the Lynbrook Public School District brought awareness to the impact of social isolation during Start with Hello Week from Sept. 18 to 22.

The mission of Start with Hello Week, an initiative started by Sandy Hook Promise, is to limit social isolation and form connections through simple greetings. Students at North and South middle schools wore name tags and were challenged to greet five new peers with a simple “hello.” At a photo booth, students had fun posing together for photos. During “Positive Note Tuesday,” students shared notes with positive messages and compliments, while “Welcome Wednesday” was filled with new friendships being made. Throughout the week at South Middle, Principal Kaitlin GaNun and social worker Amanda Cioffi pushed in to all sixth-grade classes to read the book “Invisible Boy” by Trudy Ludwig to facilitate discussions about social awareness, kindness and the importance of reaching out.
