The rain did not dampen the spirits of students throughout the Lynbrook Public Schools as they headed to their first day of school on Sept. 6. Administrators and teachers were front and center at each building to greet students from kindergarten through grade 12.
The eventful day allowed students to learn their new routine, master their schedules, get to know their teachers and become acclimated to their peers. Icebreaker games and activities were conducted in many of the classrooms to create a comfortable learning environment for students.
In addition, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Melissa Burak visited students throughout the district and stopped by the Kindergarten Center to greet the Class of 2030. To grow accustomed to the busses, family members had the opportunity to ride with their children to the school where they were then welcomed by Principal Ellen Postman. With backpacks and school supplies in tow, the students lined up with their classes and said goodbye to their loved ones for the day.
“We are so happy to see such eager learners here today,” said Dr. Burak. “We welcome them all back to a wonderful year.”
The district looks forward to watch students soar through the high school implementation of two new engineering courses and the expansion of the One-To-World tablet program, allowing all freshmen and sophomores to utilize portable devices as tools for learning. At the elementary school level, the integrated co-teach program in first through third grade has also taken effect in all three elementary schools to allow students to strengthen their learning by working alongside others.
