Students and staff throughout Lynbrook Public Schools stood as one against bullying for Unity Day on Oct. 18.

Hallways and classrooms were filled with orange on clothing and decorations signifying the theme of the day. Every grade level participated in activities that promoted kindness, inclusion and acceptance of all. An interactive assembly at Waverly Park Elementary School, for example, encouraged students to focus on positive thoughts instead of ones that would put themselves or others down. At North Middle, each step toward kindness was represented on their kindness board assembled by the student government. Meanwhile at South Middle, classroom doors were donned with seasonal decorations and positive messages, and students created a paper chain featuring compliments and encouraging messages.
