Fifth graders throughout the Lynbrook School District will soon enter middle school after capping off their elementary years with moving up ceremonies on June 25.

The day was kicked-off on the Marion Street field, where fifth grade classes, joined by their peers in first through fourth grades, streamed to their seats as cheers rung out from the bleachers. Fifth graders sang “Have it All” by Jason Mraz, and Principal Theresa Macchia welcomed guests and commended the soon-to-be middle schoolers. Student Council Vice President Mary Uwakwe and President Allison Wong congratulated their fellow graduates.

“We have overcome many challenges and obstacles together, and now we are prepared to tackle some more,” Allison said.

At Waverly Park, fifth graders passed by their loved ones as they made their way to the stage. Students sang “My Way” by Frank Sinatra and “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen, and the orchestra ensemble played “This is Me.” Principal Allison Campbell shared her pride in the graduating class, and fifth graders individually shared a defining trait or lesson learned in amusing fashion. Student Council President Sienna Emery thanked teachers and spoke to her peers.

“Today we celebrate not just an ending, but a new beginning,” Sienna said. “Let us remember the memories we have made together and look forward to the bright futures that await us.”

West End fifth graders gathered in the Lynbrook High School gymnasium for their ceremony. Students sang “Count on Me” by Bruno Mars and “We are the Champions” by Queen. Principal Leah Murray addressed the class and encouraged them to always be ideal West End Champions. Student Council President Drexel Farr shared remarks with his peers.

“This is our shot,” Drexel said. “This is our shot to reinvent ourselves. It’s our shot to make new friends. Our shot to try again, and our shot to try harder.”

Through two commemorative videos, West End graduates also reflected on the many memories made throughout the years.
At each ceremony, various awards were presented, including the the Presidential Award for Educational Excellence and for Academic Achievement, and Lynbrook Teachers’ Association Awards.

The diversity of the Waverly Park Elementary School community in the Lynbrook Public School District was displayed with pride as students’ family members visited to share tastes of their cultural backgrounds. 

Quickly becoming an annual tradition, Waverly Park’s Culture Fair featured 15 diverse cultures on May 17. Prior to the event, students whose families signed up to volunteer at the fair made morning announcements introducing their country’s holidays, traditions, and foods.  As the Waverly students listened, they recorded this information in passport booklets to be used be used at the Culture Fair. With passports in hand, students travelled the world to 15 different countries including Afghanistan, Albania, Brazil, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Greece, Guyana, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and Trinidad. 

Throughout their travels, students collected country flag stamps and learned how to say “hello” in the countries’ respective languages. Family volunteers came dressed representing their country and provided students with experiences and goodies such as bracelet making, stickers, key chains, and wearable jewelry from different cultures. The event provided students an opportunity to take a deeper, meaningful look into the cultures of their classmate's heritage.
