Application and Information on Global Goals Project

In alliance with the United Nations, during the 2017-18 school year, Lindenhurst and Sandvika High School in Norway will take the lead in addressing the Global Goals for 2030 by modeling how youth around the world can make a difference on our planet.              

Twenty LHS students will be chosen to partner with a Norwegian student from Sandvika H.S. to collaborate on one of the 17 Global Goals outlined in the attached overview. The Norwegian students will visit the USA from September 15 - 22, 2017. During their trip, they will stay with LHS host families, attend classes at LHS, and travel to NYC and Washington D.C. (The cost of these trips is included in the itinerary.) Faculty members, business owners, and politicians will mentor each pair of students as they collaborate on their selected goal.                

During Spring Break 2018 (March 30-April 8), the twenty selected LHS students will visit Norway (The cost of this trip will be posted in July.)        

Together students will explore how their respective governments are responding to the Global Goals challenge. They will also learn how communication, cultural understanding, and empathy are vital to making their work a reality.

NOTE: Students will be selected on a first come, first serve basis.

Spiking Out Cancer

Faculty and staff of the district hit the courts in an effort to raise money for pediatric cancer. During the third annual “Battle of the Schools, Teachers Spiking out Cancer” volleyball tournament organized by middle school reading specialist Kelly Bardak and held at the Lindenhurst High School, teachers, administrators and staff competed against each other, much to the enjoyment of the community of spectators.

The annual event benefits the Christina Renna and Ty Louis Campbell foundations. Ty Louis Campbell, was a 5-year-old boy from Bardak’s hometown, who passed away from brain cancer, and Christina Renna was a young Lindenhurst student who, sadly, lost her battle with cancer. Christina was a member of the girls varsity track team when Bardak was the assistant coach. In its inaugural year, the fundraiser generated $3,500. This year, $4,460 was raised.

This year, the middle school team, “Notorious D.I.G” reigned victorious, stripping the title from last year’s winner, the Lindenhurst High School, with a final score of 21-19.

On May 26, the district took part in the fourth annual “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Life” campaign in which the school community banded together to celebrate the benefits of a life without drugs. In a movement spearheaded by the Peer Leaders group, staff and students throughout the district wore matching T-shirts created specifically for the event to illustrate the solidarity shared for the important cause.

‘Shattered Dreams’ Promotes Responsibility

The Lindenhurst High School Student Council, with the support from Lindy Community Cares, dramatized the consequences of drinking and driving with “Shattered Dreams,” a program that promotes responsible decision-making by high school students regarding drinking and driving.

The event included a mock accident scene in which several students were seriously, and in one case fatally, injured as a result of a student’s decision to drive home after having “just one shot” at a graduation party. The junior and senior classes looked on as various community entities, including local fire, police and EMS paramedics responded to the mock scene behind the high school. They watched as police officers tested and “arrested” their classmate whose decision to have “just one shot” impacted the lives of so many others.

On the second day of the event, the students watched Student Council members re-enact a memorial service for their fellow classmate emphasizing the gravity of situation and reinforcing the message that even one drink can destroy lives.

As a culmination to the program, motivational speaker and author, Ed Gerety spoke to students. He encouraged them to be mindful of their decisions. “Live and lead life with gratitude,” said Gerety. “Make positive choices, respect one another, be kind and stand up for your greatness.”
