Lindenhurst Middle School students were honored at the Breakfast for Champions celebration coordinated by middle school educator Kathy Curran on Jan. 19.
Held at the Lindencrest Diner, the breakfast, now in its 18th year, honors students who exemplify Lindy Pride at the middle school. Students are nominated by teachers for a variety of reasons including being great role models to the other students and being “rock-stars” in class. They are recognized publically with certificates of Merit in front of proud parents, teachers and peers.
“These students are the ones who always go the extra mile,” said Principal Frank Naccarato. “They are the ones who never give up and continuously do their best. They are the embodiment of ‘Lindy Pride.’”
