Fourteen Lynbrook North Middle School eighth-graders recently participated in a full-day peer leadership conference hosted by Sayville Middle School. The day included a variety of workshops intended to empower students and help them transform school culture by being positive influences on their peers. Lynbrook was one of 17 schools to attend from across Long Island.
The 14 students were selected by teachers and staff. Social worker Sandra Gettenberg and guidance counselor Ali Etra also attended the leadership conference with the students.
The middle schoolers heard from speakers such as Tom Coverly from The Youth Alliance and collaborated with other school districts on a variety of topics including diversity, bullying, social media, drug prevention and leadership. It was a great experience for all!
