Students in the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center in the Lynbrook School District gathered on Nov. 24 for a bountiful Thanksgiving feast.

Kindergarteners — dressed as turkeys, pilgrims and Native Americans — filed into the gymnasium and a classroom which had desks set like tables for dinner, with juice boxes and all. Turkey and more were provided by the Parents Club, and parent volunteers helped hand out food. Children helped prepare stuffing, apple sauce, corn bread and butter.

Before diving in, students raised their juices in a toast to friends, family and food and for a healthy and happy Thanksgiving.

To honor the heritage of Native Americans, students in Juliana Rotman’s and Kim Fitzsimmons’s classes in the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center learned about Native American heritage on Long Island.

Principal Ellen Postman read “Fry Bread” and “Grandmother’s Dreamcatcher” to the children to teach them about Native American culture. Afterwards, the class made dreamcatchers, which are traditionally gifted to children in Native American tribes as a medium of protection against bad dreams and other harms. They are typically hung above cribs and beds.

To celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights, kindergartners in Kim Fitzsimmons class at Lynbrook’s Kindergarten Center create rangolis at the school entrance. Rangolis are colorful art designs created on a floor or tabletop to bring good luck for the new year. The kindergartners also learned about diyas, clay lamps lit during Diwali, and used their creativity to create their own.

Students at the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center received a special treat on Oct. 14 for Hispanic Heritage Month. Lynbrook High School juniors in Bill Luzzi’s honors Spanish class visited the kindergartners outside on the Kindergarten Center field to read a book in Spanish and interact with the young students.

It was the perfect fall day as each kindergarten class made a circle and sat socially distant from each other on the field. Some class’s donned paper sombreros for the occasion. Each kindergarten class had 2-3 high school students that read a children’s book to them in Spanish. After they were finished, the high schoolers interacted with their assigned class and spoke about different Spanish words that they have learned. Kindergartners showcased their foreign language skills and asked the juniors questions as well. The special partnership allowed the two schools to connect in a meaningful way as they celebrated Hispanic culture.

Last week, members of the High School Key Club visited the Kindergarten Center to talk about Halloween safety. Alongside advisor Benedict Tieniber and Key Club presidents Emma and Sophie Ward, twenty high school students visited the kindergartners and spoke on the hazards of Halloween, including “stranger danger.”

According to Emma, "We taught the kindergartners what to do and what not to do when trick-or-treating. We explained that it was important to go with a group of people and a trusted adult, to look both ways before crossing the street, to not to wander off from your group, and to get your candy checked."

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, students at the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center recently learned how to create their own versions of Mexican serapes or classic Mexican blankets.

Led by art teacher Katie Kelly Roth, the kindergarten classes explored traditional Mexican serapes and noticed the many colors, line designs and patterns that were used. To create their own paper version of this textile, students used gluing techniques, practiced making a variety of lines and learned scissor-cutting techniques to create their textured fringe. It was a great way for students to explore their creativity and learn more about Mexican culture.
