This past Halloween, Lynbrook High School’s Key Club members, alongside their advisor Dr. Benedict Tieniber, participated in a “Halloween Safety” event at the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center. Twenty high school students visited kindergarten classes to read and present tips/tricks and rules on stranger danger and general safety. 

“It was great seeing how much the kids loved the holiday season, and reminiscing at my old school,” said LHS student Michael Morelli. 

“It was an amazing experience teaching the kids,” added LHS student Gabriela Campos-Peyrou. “I also felt great knowing we were helping them stay safe.”

As part of Health and Wellness Week at the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center, students enjoyed an interactive health fair hosted by Molloy College nursing students on Oct. 24. Nursing students enrolled in Molloy College’s Community Health course visit the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center each year to educate the young students on health and wellness.
 
The nursing students facilitated stations throughout the school gymnasium to help the kindergartners learn about important health topics. This included learning about dental hygiene, eating right, exercise, good and bad choices, street safety and more. The kindergartners received stickers and worksheets along the way as the nursing students provided health and wellness information and tips. The health fair was one of the many ways that the kindergarten students learned how to maintain a healthy lifestyle throughout the week. Students also participated in a yoga assembly and ended the week with field day.

Approximately 200 elementary students from the Lynbrook Public Schools participate in Right At School, a structured and safe after-school program that is housed at Marion Street, Waverly Park and West End elementary schools. The district partnered with Right At School three years ago to provide working parents in the district with an after school program fit to keep students engaged after regular school hours.
 
The program is open to students in grades K-5 and is held Monday through Friday each week. Students participate in the program at their home school, while kindergarten students are bused from the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center to the elementary school that they will attend in first grade. Led by hardworking Right At School educators, students follow a daily schedule which includes snack, quick and fun fitness, homework help, enrichment activities and more.
 
“My favorite part of Right At School is being with the educators because they are really funny and nice,” said West End fourth grader Sophia Kostkowicz.
 
According to Cindy Walker, Right At School area manager, the goal of the program is to keep students fully engaged at all times while learning through play. Each week, students enjoy being with their friends, completing their homework before going home and participating in fun games. Fifth graders who attend the program also have the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills as they help younger groups with activities.

Students and staff from the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center and Waverly Park Elementary School recently teamed up to host a “Peds for Peru” drive. Together, the school communities collected more than 220 pairs of shoes to donate to students in need at the Primaria 50896 San Isidro Labrador Publica in Huayllabamba, Peru.
 
Connecting with the district’s 2019-2020 theme of the year, A Community of Caring, this fundraiser was one of many service projects that Lynbrook students participate in throughout the school year to give back.
