The students examined a graph from the Pew Research Center which was featured in the article, “Key facts about U.S. Latinos for National Hispanic Heritage Month.” Students participated in a student-centered discussion about the properties of the graph shown in the article. Through this warm-up activity, the class not only learned about math content, but also cultural information that related directly to them.

LHS Concert Choir Honored by Long Island Music Hall of Fame

split-screen video of students performing a song thumbnail199386
Lynbrook High School’s concert choir was recognized in the prestigious Long Island Music Hall of Fame’s High School Music Department Recognition Program. The choir was one of 16 Long Island high school music ensembles to be honored by the Hall of Fame for its video performance of “The Sun Is Gonna Shine Again” during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each year, the Long Island Music Hall of Fame’s Recognition Program celebrates music programs that create valuable experiences for students and incorporate the National and New York State’s Standards for the Arts. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 recognition program went virtual with the hope of highlighting the incredible music that schools created during these unprecedented times.

Music teachers and directors from across Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties were encouraged to submit video files from a performing group that best represented their school’s finest musical accomplishment. The videos were reviewed by the LIMHoF Education Committee and a panel of music educators. Lynbrook’s video featured members of the high school concert choir singing “The Sun Is Gonna Shine Again” around the high school building and in the studio. Video and photo flashbacks pop up throughout the video as the students reminisce on pre-COVID times, while the song’s positive lyrics inspire others to look at tomorrow as a better day.

The high school students were accompanied by a select few Lynbrook North and South middle school students and the video was directed by choir director Barry Wyner. It was produced by Lynbrook High School student Max Cordes, with audio production by Lynbrook High School alumnus and two-time Grammy award winner Danny Weinkauf. Members of the concert choir had the unique opportunity to record the song outdoors at Mr. Weinkauf’s home recording studio.

Lynbrook’s video, along with the other top entries, were featured on the Long Island Music Hall of Fame’s website and social media pages. Congratulations, Lynbrook High School!

Lynbrook Students Earn All-State Recognition

Headshots of Student Musicians Selected for All-Conference This Year thumbnail199273
Five exceptional Lynbrook High School student-musicians were recently selected as either participants or alternates for the New York State School Music Association All-State Conference this year. The festival will be held in Rochester, New York from Dec. 2-5.

Junior Dylan Baltes will play the string bass in the symphony orchestra, while seniors Andrew Director and Jaden Harvin will play the tuba in the symphony orchestra and sing in the mixed chorus, respectively. Seniors Rachel Edelstein and Manaka Ogura were chosen as alternates for the festival. Rachel was selected for snare drum, while Manaka was selected for violin.

These five talented student-musicians were among thousands from New York State who auditioned for the All-State Conference last year. Performing in these elite All-State ensembles is one of the highest honors bestowed on high school music students in the state. The district congratulates them on this tremendous accomplishment!

Lynbrook Senior Becomes National Merit Semifinalist

Lynbrook High School senior Emma Ward was recently recognized as a Semifinalist in the prestigious 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program. She is among 16,000 high school seniors to earn the Semifinalist title based on her high score on the 2020 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The Semifinalists represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors and includes the highest scoring entrants in each state.

Emma is now in the running to continue on in the National Merit Scholarship Program for one of approximately 7,500 scholarship awards which will be offered in the spring. She will find out in February if she has advanced to the Finalist level, making her one step closer to being a possible scholarship winner.

Along with her dedication to academics, Emma is a true leader at Lynbrook High School. She co-founded a SCOPE club with her twin sister Sophie, which raises money to send underprivileged children with special needs to sleepaway camp. Furthermore, Emma is co-president of the Key Club with her sister, is the vice-president of the Student Government Association, the managing editor of the school’s student-run newspaper Horizon, a member of the mathletes club and is on the tennis team.

Outside of school, Emma is also actively involved in the community. She volunteers her time at a Hebrew School for children with special needs, interns for a state senator and co-founded a branch of Talenthood, a nationwide tutoring service, in Lynbrook and Hewlett with her sister.

The Lynbrook Public Schools congratulates Emma on this outstanding achievement and wishes her the best of luck as she continues on in the competition!
