To prepare for the month, students studied a select Black leader and wrote about their achievements and the ways they have been influential.

The Lynbrook School District community shared a heartfelt farewell to five retirees who represent a combined 146 years of service to Lynbrook schools during the board of education meeting on Feb. 7.

Family members, loved ones, building administrators and fellow teachers gathered at the meeting to honor the night’s retirees. Each retiree will conclude their exceptionally dedicated service to their respective buildings at the end of the school year in June.

Retirees included Nannette Boylan, who served for 19 years as a teacher at both Marion Street Elementary School and the Kindergarten Center; Maureen Montgomery, who served for 33 years as an Elementary and Mathematics Academic Intervention Services teacher; Mollie Traversa, who served for 30 years as a teacher at Marion Street; Lisa Soethout, who served for 34 years at West End Elementary School; and Deborah Story, who served for 30 years as a teacher at Waverly Park Elementary School. The district wishes them all a happy and healthy retirement. #OwlProud

Lynbrook’s exciting Profile of the Owl initiative is officially underway, with dozens of students from throughout the district contributing their thoughts about what a successful Owl graduate looks like on Feb. 1.

Lynbrook’s Profile of an Owl will define the key skills, mindsets and traits that the Lynbrook community believes are essential in finding success after graduation. An important step was hearing from our students in the high school and each elementary and middle school building, who pondered the question, “Who is the Lynbrook Owl?” Students broke out into groups to discuss while being led by facilitators.

To develop the in-depth project that is the Profile of the Owl, the district is collaborating with Molloy University, which is providing a free service by data analyzers who work at a professional level. They will ensure that the final result will feature the input of all Lynbrook community stakeholders, from our own students to families, alumni and business owners.

The new year began with a good cause at West End Elementary School in the Lynbrook School District as a schoolwide student-run effort provided vital supplies to those in need.

Throughout December, the West End student council sold dozens of green bracelets sporting Lynbrook’s #OwlProud motto. Using the funds collected, the students purchased goods that were listed as items of need for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, including necessities such as hygiene and cleaning supplies. On Jan. 10, the student council met to assemble their donations, which filled up 10 baskets. The donations were taken to the Ronald McDonald House the same day. #OwlProud
