Lynbrook North Middle School Earns No Place for Hate Distinction

The global pandemic has led to isolation, heartbreak and loss for many, but for the Lynbrook North Middle School community, it also led to transformation, innovation and teamwork. Due to the positive efforts of students and staff this year, Lynbrook North Middle School was once again recognized by the Anti-Defamation League as a No Place for Hate School.

No Place for Hate is a self-directed program intended to help schools create a more equitable and inclusive climate where all students can thrive. To earn the No Place for Hate designation, a school must demonstrate a positive, safe and inclusive learning environment for students by designing and implementing at least three school-wide anti-bias or bullying prevention activities approved by the ADL.

Lynbrook North Middle School students and staff showcased this throughout the school year by creating and engaging in memorable activities that prompted important conversations about bias, bullying, cyberbullying, discrimination, name-calling, prejudice and stereotypes. They participated in special weeks and days such as Start With Hello Week, which fostered social inclusivity and mental health awareness; Unity Day, where students spoke about crucial subjects pertaining to social justice and inclusivity; and Diversity Rocks, a special project where students painted rocks and expressed themselves creatively after engaging in discussions about identity and the concept of stereotyping.

“We want to help students understand that everyone has a role to play in combating bias and bullying as a means to stop the escalation of hate,” said Lynbrook North Middle School Social Worker Sandra Gettenberg.

Staff members will continue to foster conversations about these important issues while finding new ways to continue to build a kind and inclusive school environment for all.

Lynbrook North Middle School sixth graders in Bryton Saunders’ class transformed their classroom into a Mexican fiesta in honor of Cinco de Mayo. Leading up to their celebration, the students created their own maracas and mini piñatas with the help of seventh and eighth grade North students involved in the school’s Owl Buddies Program. The buddies then joined the class for a period of Cinco de Mayo fun.

Facilitated by Saunders and fellow staff members Kelly DiBenedetto, Karen Feltkamp, Allison Franco, Jenn Sebetic and Maureen Teramo, the Owl Buddies Program connects older students with younger students once a week during lunch periods. These buddies serve as role models to their younger peers and the program allows for new friendships to be formed through conversation, crafts and games.

“I saw this as an opportunity to be friends with more people,” said eighth grade Owl Buddy Jared Hospedales. “I wanted to show the sixth graders that not all eighth graders are these big tough kids. It’s a chance for us to have fun and to see them smile.”

During the Cinco de Mayo celebration, the sixth graders, along with members of the Owl Buddies Program participated in a maraca game where students had to pass three maracas around in a circle and when the music stopped, the individuals holding the maracas had to dance in the middle of the circle. In addition, the sixth graders and their eighth grade buddies pulled open their colorful mini piñatas. Candy fell to the floor and all the students quickly scrambled to collect. The celebration concluded on a high note as all the students enjoyed some snacks and being in each other’s company.

“My favorite part of this program is being able to hang out with the sixth graders,” said eighth grade Owl Buddy Gianna Longo. “It’s just a nice positive environment and I love to be here.”

Eighth grade students from Lynbrook North Middle School and Lynbrook South Middle School joined together virtually to explore different career paths during the district’s annual middle school career fair on April 30. Coordinated each year by South Middle School guidance counselor Jennifer Arena and North Middle School guidance counselor Alexandra Etra, the career fair typically takes place in-person and features various speakers that stop into middle school classrooms during the school day to teach students about their interesting careers.

Despite being virtual this year, the career fair was a success as students from both middle schools participated using their technological devices either at school or at home. Four presenters spoke with the students via Cisco Webex throughout the morning about their careers and personal experiences. Speakers included Lynbrook High School social worker and transition coordinator Rosanne Bogard, construction surveyor Michael Silverstein, forensic scientist Karen Dooling and CEO and founder of the Gourmet Ghee Company/Lynbrook parent Nazia Aibani-DeFrank.

Each presenter shared information about what they do for a living and how they got to this point in their careers. This included talking about their own backgrounds, education and training. The students received words of wisdom through each presenter’s session. They learned the importance of networking, jumping at opportunities and that your plan A can sometimes turn into a plan B. The middle schoolers were able to ask questions throughout the sessions and enjoyed exploring new career options that they may not have known about before.
