Making a Splash in Summer

Summertime is a great time to go to the ocean…or learn about it as the kindergarten and first-grade participants of the Daniel Street Elementary School Extended Summer Program recently discovered.            

During an interactive lesson, teacher Nicole Fellin read the book “Hello Ocean,” by Pam Muñoz Ryan and encouraged her students to explore their five senses as they listened to the sound of the ocean, and experienced the simulated salty taste and feel of the ocean water using water, salt and food coloring.            

“This was a wonderful way for the kids to expand their vocabulary while using their senses,” said Fellin.            

When asked about the lesson, student Ryan said, “I really liked seeing the pictures in the book because it makes you feel like you’re really at the beach!”        

Join the Wall of Heroes

Lindenhurst  students and graduates have much to be proud of. They embody the high school motto of "Leadership, Honor and Scholarship” in many of their endeavors.            

A large number of alumni have gone on to serve our country and defend our basic freedoms. The district wishes to honor those brave members of the Lindenhurst school community by including their names on the “Lindy Grad Vets” Wall of Heroes.            

To be considered, one must complete the application located on the right of this page where it says "Wall of Heroes Application" and provide either proof of graduation from Lindenhurst or proof of service in the form of a DD214.

Please note that when submitting any information that may include personal details such as social security information, it is the responsibility of the veteran to conceal that information.

The district extends its heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of its veterans for their dedication and commitment to service.

On the evening of June 24, the Class of 2016 walked the middle school  track one last time as Lindenhurst High School students. The  band performed “Pomp and Circumstance” and the  soon-to-be graduates took to their seats in preparation of becoming the newest Lindenhurst High School alumni.            

The Marine Corps – JROTC Color Guard provided the presentation of colors and Class Vice President Gabrielle Barone led the salute to the flag and made welcoming remarks. The senior members of the high school chorus sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” for their classmates one last time.            

Class of 2016 valedictorian Ihor Balaban addressed his audience with gratitude taking the time to thank the graduating class, in addition to, the families and educators who helped them along the way. He advised his classmates to explore the world beyond Lindenhurst.                           

His statements were preceded by the address of classmate Emma Gillam, who with senior Ryan Frank, was named class co-salutatorian.

Also addressing the class, were Superintendent of Schools Daniel E. Giordano, High School Principal Dr. Christopher Gitz and Board of Education Trustee Valerie McKenna, whose son William sat among the audience of graduates.            

Mr. Giordano took the opportunity to bring the students full circle and read them a story to end their Lindenhurst journey, as their kindergarten teachers had done to begin it. Referencing the book “Giraffes Can’t Dance,” he urged the graduates to be kind, explore their passions and step outside of their comfort zones.

Shortly after the remarks, the soon-to-be graduates approached the podium one by one and received their diplomas from the members of the Board of Education. Upon returning to their seats and receiving a final congratulatory standing ovation from the bleachers, they were granted the opportunity to finalize their experience as Lindenhurst students and ceremoniously toss their graduation caps into the air. 

Before they headed off the field, New York State Sen. Charles Schumer surprised students and took to the podium with an encouraging message to "Go for it!"
