Important Information from the Lindenhurst Middle School

This district and community have a reputation of being altruistic and this quality is what helps to make Lindenhurst such a great place to work and learn.  We have much to look forward to in the upcoming months before spring arrives and the success of our students remains to be a number one priority. In addition to student success, we also pride ourselves on how the community that we live in assists in many philanthropic ways that includes toys for tots all the way to donating items to veterans.  

In difficult economic times, we may find it challenging to donate in monetary ways.  However, on January 24, 2019 from 3:00 to 8:00 in the middle school cafeteria, the school will be sponsoring a blood drive in concert with the New York Blood Center.  One key piece to the success of this drive is to have full support of the parents, community members, teachers, administrators, and willing volunteers.   

If you would like to donate or have any questions don’t hesitate to ask Mrs. Pat Natale at 631-867-3587 or  

The district cares greatly for others and can donate in order for us to reach the blood drive goal. 


An Important Message from the Superintendent of Schools

Every year, the student members of the Lindenhurst Cares Coalition set measurable goals in accordance with a Drug Free Community Grant. The grant is used by the coalition to fund programs that benefit district students. In order to maintain that grant, assess needs, set goals and respond quickly to the needs of fellow students, a voluntary baseline survey of Core Measures (Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana and Prescription Drug Use without a prescription and questions about environmental quality) must be conducted. The data produced from the anonymous survey allows Lindy Cares, in cooperation with various youth clubs, to implement strategies that create awareness, enhance skills, change policy and increase protective factors in the school and in the community.  

On Monday, Feb 4. the district plans to administer the Core Measures Survey to students in grades 8 through 12, who choose to participate by submitting this signed form to their social studies teachers no later than Friday, Feb 1.The survey will be given during social studies, as one branch of social studies is civics during which students study the way a local government works, as well as the rights and duties of residents. Civic responsibilities are the voluntary actions and attitudes associated with a democracy and social participation, such as volunteerism, or participation in government. Voluntary participation in a community survey falls under this category.

Please CLICK HERE if you wish to review the survey instrument and/or instructional material used in connection with the survey. You have the right to review the survey and/or instructional materials before the survey is administered to students.

As previously mentioned, in order to participate in the survey, the permission slip below must completed and submitted to the student’s social studies teacher no later than Friday, Feb.1.

Author Shares Her Experiences


The eighth-grade students of Lindenhurst Middle School schools received a special visit from Thanhha Lai, author of the novel “Inside Out and Back Again.” The novel, which is required reading for all Lindenhurst eighth-graders, is historical fiction, based on the author’s experiences as a refugee during the Vietnam War. She describes her journey to America, where she faced bullying and discrimination.

“Her story is truly inspirational and helps to foster a sense of empathy in us all,” said English teacher Deborah Weinstein.

Thanhha Lai has won the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature.  

Woodworking with Positivity


Lindenhurst Middle School students in Missy Lewis and Jackie Korsen’s seventh- and eighth-grade art classes recently went to a wood working studio in Commack called LumberJax.    

Students were provided with a wood pallet and exposed to various wood working materials. They were shown a variety of painting techniques including stencil which they used to paint positive messages and quotes on the boards they were given to work with. 

The artist and business owner, Marie Cross, gave a demonstration on the machinery she uses, as well as the computer and accompanying programs. She also shared with students some of the information needed for owning your own business and becoming a successful artist.
