Waverly Park Elementary School in the Lynbrook School District was a sea of purple on Feb. 9 as the community promoted positivity and peace in recognition of P.S. I Love You Day.

The goal of P.S. I Love You Day, celebrated every year in Lynbrook schools, is to emphasize the importance of being kind to one another, embrace differences and lift each other up. While wearing purple to signify their mission, Waverly Park students and staff spread the love through several initiatives throughout the day. On purple hearts, students wrote a message of kindness and crafted a bracelet to be sent to a peer. In the halls, large purple hearts adorned the walls featuring positive words added by students. Lower grades envisioned a kind act and illustrated the scenario. The celebration of P.S. I Love You Day returns to Lynbrook schools each year to bring awareness to the importance of mental health and decrease bullying. #OwlProud

Lynbrook’s exciting Profile of the Owl initiative is officially underway, with dozens of students from throughout the district contributing their thoughts about what a successful Owl graduate looks like on Feb. 1.

Lynbrook’s Profile of an Owl will define the key skills, mindsets and traits that the Lynbrook community believes are essential in finding success after graduation. An important step was hearing from our students in the high school and each elementary and middle school building, who pondered the question, “Who is the Lynbrook Owl?” Students broke out into groups to discuss while being led by facilitators.

To develop the in-depth project that is the Profile of the Owl, the district is collaborating with Molloy University, which is providing a free service by data analyzers who work at a professional level. They will ensure that the final result will feature the input of all Lynbrook community stakeholders, from our own students to families, alumni and business owners.
