In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, the Waverly Park Elementary School Student Council facilitated a food drive to support the Five Towns Community Center, Inc.’s food pantry in Lawrence. To prepare for the two-day food drive which they referred to as “Stuff a Turkey,” the student council members created posters to advertise the event.
To safely collect donations from Waverly Park families, student council advisers Shari Bowes and Courtney Jacobs dressed as a turkey and an owl, respectively, and warmly greeted families outside during the school’s drop off time while music played. Before entering the school, students placed their nonperishable food items in boxes to support the food drive. Thanks to the generosity of the Waverly Park community, the student council collected 10 full boxes of food to deliver to the Five Towns Community Center, Inc. to help feed families in need this holiday season.

“Student council wants to help others,” said Mrs. Bowes. “We knew that this was something that people need. We wanted other people to feel good knowing that they had food in their pantry!”

Students and staff from the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center and Waverly Park Elementary School celebrated Health and Wellness Week from Oct. 19-23. Each day a new health and wellness topic was covered which the school communities focused on in creative and fun ways.
At the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center, parent Shana Conza organized the week and taught students yoga outside. Principal Ellen Postman also read a book to classes each day. After reading “Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site” by Sherri Duskey Rinker, students wrote letters to the construction workers at Lynbrook High School. In addition, the kindergartners learned about nutrition, proper hygiene, the importance of sleep and self-care with activities throughout the week.
At Waverly Park Elementary School, remote and in-person students in grades K-5 dressed in a different color of the rainbow each day to represent a healthy fruit and brought in healthy snacks according to that color. During the week, they participated in a “Fruit Ninja” game outside with balloons and Noodle Drumming, led by Lynbrook North Middle School physical education teacher Brian Bowes. Students also had many virtual visitors including chiropractor Dr. Jill Feldhun-Stein who instructed students on Tech Neck, Janice from Cross Fit Kids and Sensi Uly from Long Island Martial Arts who got students up and moving, and two Lynbrook High School students, Olivia Ackerman and Mia Tetelman, who educated students on social media etiquette. The week was filled with meditation, mindful crafting, yoga, jump roping and lots of movement.
