Lynbrook High School students in the Owl Buddies program rang off the Lunar New Year at Marion Street Elementary School as they led an engaging craft activity for fourth graders on Feb. 16.

Through their visits to elementary students, Owl Buddies get experience hosting lessons that they put together. Starting off, they walked fourth graders through the traditions and history surrounding the Lunar New Year, including why the current year is the year of the dragon. The high schoolers then handed out materials and helped their younger peers put together craft dragons in celebration of the holiday. Fourth graders got creative with colors before cutting out their dragons and making puppets for a parade. Several Owl Buddies got the chance to visit younger relatives in the classroom, such as freshman Evan Cao who spent time with his younger brother, Christopher.

In preparation of a relaxing winter recess on Feb. 16, students at North Middle School in the Lynbrook School District reviewed a key phrase that helps maintain a mindful social media habit: Words have power.

Principal Marianne Healy, social studies teacher James O’Hara and support staff visited classrooms to encourage safe and all-welcoming social media practices. Students were reminded that biased words, even when unintended, can cause hurt, pain and harm to young people and can also lead to more consequential impacts like acts of bias, discrimination or bullying. Classrooms explored what biased language looks like, its impact and how to address it when faced with or witnessing it.
