Students in the Lynbrook Summer Playground program have been enjoying an exciting summer with fun and educational initiatives that help bridge the gap between school years.
The annual Summer Playground is open to all Lynbrook Schools students and all Village of Lynbrook children entering kindergarten through 8th grade. The six-week program held at West End Elementary and South Middle School provides a bevy of highly anticipated events, such as a recent visit from representatives of the Tanglewood Preserve who brought along animals for students to meet up close. Since the launch of Summer Playground in July, students have also taken part in interactive martial arts lessons, learned about fire safety from the Lynbrook Fire Department, brought custom-made tie-dye shirts home and made weekly visits to Woodmere Lanes for bowling. Play time in the sprinklers and flavored ices for all are also regular sights at the Summer Playground.
As the summer rolls on, exciting events are still in store at the Summer Playground, including a talent show and carnival day with games and prizes.
