Voyager program students travel to The WaterFront Center

The Lynbrook Public Schools Voyager program partnered up with The WaterFront Center to offer our students an opportunity to study about Long Island’s local waters and the importance of oyster reefs in those waters.

Voyagers were offered numerous hands-on learning experiences both in class and on site at the WaterFront Center in Oyster Bay, NY. In class, students were able to learn about the life cycle of oysters and how they are integral to our local waters. Students became citizen scientists, using tools like calipers and scales to collect data for the WaterFront Center’s oyster restoration efforts.

On site, students learned about the beach, marsh & estuary. Students went seining for local species of fish. Additionally, students interacted with an invertebrate touch tank as they learned about what lives in the harbor.

The final study was done aboard a floating classroom, Christeen, a national historic landmark. Students hoisted sails and gathered information about our local ecosystem. They participated in a dredge and students left with a clear understanding of just how crucial oysters are to global ocean health.

“This was such an engaging and meaningful study,” Voyager instructor, Mrs. Teichman, shared. “The students can now educate others on the importance of supporting oyster restoration efforts.”

Students throughout Waverly Park Elementary School in the Lynbrook Public School District have been practicing inclusion and acceptance in celebration of Spirit Week, which focuses on Autism Acceptance Month this year. On April 26, they received a special visit from ambassadors of The Henry Viscardi School.

The Henry Viscardi School services students with disabilities, two of whom made the visit to Waverly Park to speak to classes. Along with disability advocate and coordinator for the Viscardi School Joseph Slaninka, they showed students they can clean, cook, crotchet, play sports and much more with disabilities that require wheelchair assistance. Students asked questions, and select students enjoyed a pizza lunch with their guests. The Waverly Park PTA also presented a donation to the Henry Viscardi Student Council.

The visit coincided with Spirit Week, during which students displayed inclusion through daily themes. On Monday, for example, students wore fun hats to celebrate the magnificent minds of those with autism.
