Marion Street Elementary School students celebrated Pick a Reading Partner week from March 2-6. Organized by the Marion Street PTA, the annual PARP program encourages students to find their love of literature. This year, Marion Street’s PARP theme focused on games. The program consisted of an author visit, buddy readers and various guest readers from across the Lynbrook Public Schools and community.
 
Each day of the week, students participated in activities that encouraged reading. The week started with a Petra Puppets assembly. Students and staff also heard from Bill Doyle, author of the “Escape This Book!” series and “Scream Team” series. Later in the day, a number of students who were selected as library leaders participated in a question and answer session with the author.  

During the week, students were encouraged to visit the East Rockaway Library to create their own bookmarks and visit the Lynbrook Public Library to complete a “Clue” scavenger hunt. If students stopped by either libraries during the week, they received a raffle ticket. Throughout the school hallways, each grade level had a different game board displayed. The boards showcased the participation rate of each class and raffle winners were announced on March 9.
 
In addition, about 20 volunteers from throughout the district and Lynbrook community visited classes over the course of three days to read their favorite books and talk about what they do for a living. In honor of their guest readers, students were encouraged to dress like their favorite community member on one of the PARP days. They enjoyed hearing from individuals such as Lynbrook’s Superintendent of Schools Dr. Melissa Burak, Dr. Maureen Berman, assistant superintendent for personnel, transportation and student support services, Lynbrook Police Chief Brian Paladino, Lynbrook librarian and PTA parent Antoinette Caputo, New York State assemblywoman Judy Griffin and more.
 
To end of the week on a high note, students and staff celebrated with a pajama day. Each class was paired with another class and read together.

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.
