Students and staff at Waverly Park Elementary School kicked off their annual Pick a Reading Partner week on Jan. 31 with a school-wide pep rally. The PARP program was established by the New York State PTA to encourage students to read in school and at home.

This year, Waverly Park students voted for the PARP theme that the school followed from Jan. 31-Feb. 7, resulting in “Book to the Future, Reading Through the Decades.” The school’s PARP committee hosted the pep rally to get students excited about the week ahead. 

Several Lynbrook South Middle School students, with the help of their music teacher Annie Pasqua, helped bring the celebration to life by performing the NeverEnding Story theme song with books in hand. Waverly Park students also learned more about what to expect during PARP week and some of the fun activities planned. This included dressing for the different decades, an author visit from Booki Vivat, guest readers, a trip to the Kindergarten Center to read to students and a timeline graffiti wall activity. 

In addition, the school planned to host their annual “PARP wRap Up” contest. Using a FlipGrid code, students were encouraged to create their own parody or original song about reading, PARP or “Book to the Future” by filming a fun FlipGrid video. The winners of the contest served as guest DJ’s during lunch on the last day of PARP.
Waverly Park teachers performed cartwheels during the pep rally and students participated in a GoNoodle movement activity called “Not Dog Time Machine.” Students had fun following along with the video as it related to the PARP theme of time and the future. At the end of the celebration, Principal Allison Banhazl presented Waverly Park’s new photo backdrop. She told the students that the backdrop would be stationed in the school lobby throughout PARP week to take photos with.

Marion Street Elementary School fifth graders showcased their talents during the school’s production of Disney’s “The Jungle Book Kids” on Jan. 31. Directed by music teacher Kristen Scalice, the cast performed for students and staff in the morning and for their families in the evening.
Marion Street staff members and students from Lynbrook High School volunteered to help the cast and crew bring the production to life. Students dressed in creative costumes playing the roles of elephants, monkeys, bumble bees, a snake, flowers and more. They told the story of a human boy named Mowgli and his panther friend Bagheera, who tries to get Mowgli back to the humans before the ferocious tiger Shere Khan gets to him. During this time, Mowgli meets animals in the jungle including Baloo, a giant friendly bear. When Shere Khan returns, the fellow animals help Mowgli battle and restore peace in the jungle. Throughout the performance, the students showcased their exceptional acting, dancing and singing abilities with popular songs such as “The Bare Necessities” and “I Wan'na Be Like You.”

At the end of the in-school performance, Marion Street Principal Theresa Macchia recognized a special staff member seated in the front row – school monitor Patricia Maurin, known to students and staff as “Ms. Pat.” For the past 14 and a half years Ms. Pat has greeted visitors at the school and was known for saying “Please state your name and reason for your visit” before letting anyone enter the building. The day marked her final one at Marion Street before her retirement. As a surprise, all the staff members wore T-shirts to the in-school performance with her go-to greeting across it. She was presented with her own T-shirt and flowers as Mrs. Macchia thanked her for her service.
