Strengthening Skills in Summer

Approximately 29 English language learners from grades 3-5 throughout the district took part in a summer language program offered through the New York State Immigration Grant.

Participating in hands-on experiments and learning activities led by three district ESL teachers, students explored content vocabulary in the areas of science, math and social studies. Topics explored included oceans, fossils and the Culper spy ring. 

Regular Friday field trips to places such as the Riverhead Aquarium, Bronx Zoo, Museum of Natural History and the Hall of Science in Queens reinforced the concepts explored throughout the week.

Saying Good-bye to the Class of 2014

On June 27, the Class of 2014 officially became the newest Lindenhurst High School alumni. With proud family and friends looking on, and the high school band performing “Pomp and Circumstance,” the students made their way to the Edward F. Kienle Memorial Field in a procession led by the Lindenhurst Union Free School District’s administration as well as faculty and members of the Board of Education.

Class Vice President Jacqueline Guerra Sara led the salute to the flag and made welcoming remarks and the senior members of the high school chorus sang “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Additional student speakers included Class of 2014 salutatorian Kayla Provenzano,  valedictorian Melissa Castiglione and class president Jenny Price.

Both superintendent Richard Nathan and Principal Dan Giordano gave their last graduation speeches in their respective roles.  Also taking to the podium with an encouraging message to "Go for it!" was New York State Senator, Mr. Charles Schumer.

In a final act of unity, the soon-to-be graduates approached the podium as their names were called and received their diplomas from various members of the Board of Education. As a sea of green and white caps filled the sky, the graduates and audience members celebrated a special moment together.
