Marion Street Elementary School students were transported to Italy on Oct. 24 through special presentations by Lynbrook High School’s Culture Club.

Led by ENL teacher Mrs. Karen Smith, the high schoolers made their way to Marion Street to lead their own classroom lessons about Italian culture. Fourth and fifth graders were ecstatic to see their older peers visit their classrooms. Culture Club members shared some basic phrases in Italian, such as how to say “hello” and “goodbye,” and showed some of Italy’s famous landmarks. Students discussed their own heritage and their love of Italian food before coloring in passports showing Italy’s wonderous sights. The day marked a memorable celebration of Italian Heritage Month for all students.
