JUMP ROPE FOR HEART

Students at Lynbrook's Waverly Park School are raising money and awareness for the American Heart Association through the Jump Rope for Heart campaign. Through their participation, students are also learning different ways to stay "heart healthy" by exercising and eating healthy foods. 

"Each year for the last 15 years, the school has participated in this event, raising a grand total of approximately $60,000," said physical education teacher Dale Pescitelli. 



 
SIP AND SEE
Third and fourth-grade Waverly Park authors joined together to share their writing with one another at a "Sip and See" on April 6. After writing original stories, Mrs. Miller's third graders and Mrs. Gaddy's fourth-graders moved about the classroom, celebrating their stories while enjoying lemonade and iced tea.
 
WE COME FROM EVERYWHERE

Waverly Park second-graders conducted family research to put together their own families' immigration stories. Then they brought their stories to life in a play titled "We Come from Everywhere."

Their research projects and special performance were a creative addition to their study of immigration, which is part of the second-grade social studies curriculum. In addition to broadening their understanding of immigration, the students practiced important reading, writing, listening and speaking skills to complete the project.

"All the students did a wonderful job of communicating their own heritage, memorizing songs and sharing an important message that America is one big melting pot," said second-grade teacher Mallory Halpin.


 
DELIVERING A MESSAGE OF KINDNESS

During a visit to Waverly Park School, Holocaust survivor Marion Blumenthal Lazan delivered a lesson in kindness, goodness and mutual respect.

Lazan told her remarkable story of perseverance, faith and hope, starting with the enactment of the Nuremburg Laws of 1935, which set the stage for the Nazi Holocaust. After an unsuccessful attempt to escape to the United States, her family was sent to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1944, when Lazan was just 9 years old. The students sat silently as she described the conditions at the camp.

Lazan went on to tell how she grew up, married, raised a family and went on to publish a book about her life titled "Four Perfect Pebbles." She has devoted much of her life to recounting her story to people around the country.

She told the students that theirs is the last generation who will hear these stories firsthand. "Each of us must do everything in our power to prevent this from ever happening again," she said.


 
WAVERLY PARK ART SHOW
    The show must go on!!  After school was closed on the scheduled evening of Waverly's Art Show; Art Teacher, Carol Henderson and her team of helpers transformed the Waverly Park gymnasium into a magnificent Art Gallery.  The exhibit featured work of art created by each student.  Choral and band students under the direction of Music Teacher, Maddi Jabin and Band Director, Rob Collorafi, entertained parents and guests in the lobby before entering the exhibit. A wonderful time was had by all!
 
WAVERLY PARK ALL-COUNTY ARTISTS

Thirty students in the Lynbrook School District were selected to participate in the 2017 Nassau All-County Art Exhibition, which took place at Farmingdale State College on March 12.

The show, sponsored by the Art Supervisors Association of Nassau County, highlighted the work of students in grades K-12 who demonstrated excellence in a wide variety of two-dimensional visual art forms, including drawing, painting, printmaking, computer graphics and photography. 

Student entries were selected by art educators, who ensured that all of the exemplary pieces were created in alignment with the New York State Learning Standards for the Visual Arts. This year over 400 art educators from more than 200 schools in 50 Nassau County school districts submitted student artwork for this prestigious exhibit.

Lynbrook High School senior Jennifer Stewart was chosen to receive a scholarship award from the Art Supervisors Association. She and her fellow scholarship recipients were honored in a special ceremony prior to the opening of the exhibit. 


 
SCORING BIG WITH READING
Waverly Park students received sage advice from a special guest on March 8, when acclaimed author, TV personality and former Atlanta Falcon Tim Green visited their school.
"Do kind things, work hard in school, do things you enjoy and keep reading," he told them.
Green is creating buzz with the release of a new book called "Baseball Genius," which he coauthored with New York Yankee legend Derek Jeter. After appearing on CBS This Morning with Jeter, Green made a special visit to Waverly Park to talk about the book, which takes kids inside the world of Yankee baseball to talk about perseverance, kindness, loyalty and friendship.
Green made his name in the world of children's literature with his popular "Football Genius" series. He is also active in the NFL's Play60/Read20 program that promotes fitness and literacy. He has visited more than 1200 schools in the past 12 years, helping children build strong minds, bodies and character.
"When I was your age, I had two dreams," he said. "I loved football and I loved reading. I wasn't the smartest kid in my class, but I worked hard, and I was fortunate enough to live my dreams."
Although he has achieved fame and success in many areas, he said there is nothing more rewarding or joyful in life than being a parent, spouse, son or daughter.
"The most important thing you can do is be kind," he added. "When you read, you get a little kinder, because books help you put yourself in someone else's shoes."
Although many Waverly Park students were already fans of Green's books, he likely won over a few more converts by sharing his love of reading and life.


 
ENJOYING THE FRUITS OF THEIR FALL GARDEN

After working with other fourth graders to plant a fall crop of kale in Waverly Park's outdoor learning garden, students in Courtney Jacobs' class joined forces with Lynbrook High School students to enjoy the fruits of their labors. The fourth-graders traveled to the high school with three types of freshly harvested kale, where the older students taught them how to make kale chips by preparing, seasoning and roasting the popular leafy greens. At the end of the demonstration, everyone sampled the tasty treats fresh from the oven. The younger students then brought back the remaining chips for the other two fourth grade classes to enjoy.

The garden was created to get Waverly Park students actively engaged in outdoor education, which is the school's theme for the year. Students were encouraged to take ownership of the garden by planting, tending, harvesting and enjoying the crops they raised. The garden has also given teachers many ways to make meaningful connections to the curriculum in science, English language arts and mathematics.

MAKING MATH COUNT

Shari Bowes, Courtney Jacobs and Jessica Ryan, all teachers at Lynbrook's Waverly Park Elementary School, presented engaging techniques to improve math literacy to fellow Nassau County educators at a K-8 math conference at Molloy College on Jan. 12.

The conference titled "Making Math Count," was sponsored by the Nassau County Mathematics Teachers Association and the Nassau County Association of Mathematics Supervisors.

Bowes and Jacobs teamed up to present a workshop titled "Getting the Most out of Math Rotations." They shared tips on how to use math rotations during 90-minute math blocks to target small group instruction and keep students engaged by incorporating math literature, math fluency and math journals into math blocks.

Ryan presented a workshop titled "Growing a Growth Mindset," which detailed how to use science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics activities to promote parent engagement and help change a school's culture. She focused on the use of children's literature to encourage hope, grit, character, strength and happiness. 


 
WAVERLY PARK STUDENTS CREATE SELF-DRIVING VEHICLES

WAVERLY PARK STUDENTS SPREAD HOLIDAY CHEER
 To help make the world a brighter place during the holiday season, Waverly Park students participated in numerous community service projects during the month of December.  They put their singing talents to use when the first graders visited the Bristal Assisted Living Center and members of Student Council and All County singers visited the Lynbrook Restorative Therapy Center.   On both occasions, students sang holiday songs to the residents and delivered holiday cheer!
 
WAVERLY PARK STUDENTS DECORATE THE MITTEN TREE
Throughout the month of December, Waverly Park students collect hats, scarves and mittens to donate to those in need.  These items are lovingly placed on the "Mitten Tree" that graces the lobby of the school.  Students are encouraged to use their allowance or other sources of their own money to help others remain warm during the cold, winter months.
  For many of the Waverly students, this drive extends beyond their own homes.  One fifth grader enlisted the support of his grandmother to knit and crochet many of the magnificent hand-made scarves and hats now decorating the tree.  Kindness at Waverly is truly a family affair!

 
GRADE 5 COMMEMORATES PEARL HARBOR
This month marked the 75th Anniversary of the infamous attack on the U.S. Naval Fleet at Pearl Harbor. Grade 5 students read copies ofScholastic News Magazine and watched videos to develop an in-depth understanding of one of the most tragic days in American history.  Students talked about the causes and effects of the attack on December 7, 1941, and then created live broadcasts to deliver the information learned through green-screen technology.  Students practiced their public speaking skills while presenting historic facts to their audience.

A NEW PLAQUE FOR WAVERLY PARK’S 9-11 MEMORIAL GARDEN
    The 9-11 Memorial Garden at Waverly Park is a beautiful, serene and solemn place that honors the memory of those lost during the events of 9-11.  It is a place of reflection for students, faculty, parents, and community members.  Classes can often be found reading poetry in the garden, writing in reflective journals, or simply enjoying the beauty of this special place.  A new brushed steel plaque listing the names of those Lynbrook residents who perished on 9-11 has recently been donated by Gutterman's Funeral Home.  It is a very thoughtful and much-appreciated addition to the garden.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A RIVER
On November 4th, science teacher Sara Rubin took Waverly Park's fifth grade scientists on a journey down the Mill River through the "A Day in the Life of a River" program. This program is a fun, experimental science research program that is coordinated by the Central Pine Barrens Commission, SCWA, Brookhaven National Lab, NY State DEC and NYS Parks, where students collect scientific data along different rivers across Long Island and share it with the public. Sara Rubin, along with Matthew Jensen, a geologist from H2M Architects and Engineers, Dr. J Bret Bennington, chair of the Department of Geology, Environment and Sustainability at Hofstra University, and her team of fifth grade scientists, used seine nets and different lab equipment to investigate the aquatic life, biodiversity, water chemistry and quality, tides, weather, and sediment size at two different locations along the Mill River. The data that was collected at each of these sites will be analyzed and posted by Ms. Rubin's 5th graders on the "A Day in the Life" website to be used by the students, land use decision makers, civic groups, and the general public.

MAKING THEIR VOICES HEARD
Students at Waverly Park School exercised their right to vote on Nov. 1 in a national mock presidential election sponsored by Studies Weekly's Every Kid Votes program. They prepared for the big day with classroom lessons that helped them learn civic responsibility and gain appreciation for the democratic process.On the day of the vote, the young citizens headed to the computer lab to cast an electronic ballot that was tallied by Studies Weekly. They also cast paper ballots that were tallied independently within their school. They were then able to track the results throughout the day at www.EveryKidVotes.com, where an interactive map displayed red or blue to designate the leading candidate for each state. The site showed both popular vote and electoral college totals for each candidate. The mock election polls closed at 3 p.m. in each state's respective time zone.  Studies Weekly noted that through the Every Kid Votes program, students have correctly predicted the winning candidate in all three of the most recent presidential elections. Visit www.EveryKidVotes.com after Nov. 4 to view mock election results.

WAVERLY PARK PARTNERS WITH NASSAU COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART
Third grade students at Waverly Park have the opportunity to visit the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn three times each year, as a result of the school's partnership with the Museum.  Before each visit, the third grade teachers, Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Manning, in addition to Waverly Park's Art teacher, Mrs. Carol Henderson, preview the exhibits and receive training and teaching materials prepared by the Museum staff.  After exposure to the materials in their regular classrooms, the students visit the museum and received a guided tour from the Museum's docents.  Interactive activities that support our curriculum and promote higher level thinking are just some of the many highlights of the trip.  Thanks to the funding support of the Waverly PTA, every Waverly Park student will be provided the opportunity to enjoy this experience in grade 3.



 
UNITY DAY AT WAVERLY PARK!

On Wednesday, October 19th, Waverly Park celebrated Unity Day.  Dressed in orange, the students and staff participated in many different activities throughout the day.  All grades studied a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, that read, "I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." Students decorated hands to show how we are all different, and how we join hands to honor and support each other. Students also decorated orange paper rings to describe how they are unique. Our orange rings have now been joined to form a single chain that symbolizes how we are connected to each other.  The unified chain now decorates the halls of Waverly Park.  The day will be remembered by the beautiful collage of our students' smiling faces now hanging in the Waverly Park lobby. 


 
SECOND GRADERS BUNDLE TO 1,000
Second graders practiced bundling 10 ones into 1 ten, 10 tens into 1 hundred and 10 hundreds into 1 thousand, using 1,000 straws.

Our fourth grade curriculum currently includes a visit to their annual Retrospective held at the Lynbrook Library. Our donation to this local organization has also become part of our Walk-a-thon tradition.

  Waverly's Walk-a-thon began on Waverly Avenue and continued to the 5 ton bridge in Hewlett Harbor. The POP officers from the 4th Precinct provided the necessary escort to ensure safety and success.
