Ancient Art and Fashion Serve as Inspiration for CTE Students

Lindenhurst, NEW YORK (February 2024)—Lindenhurst High School students in Ms. Reismiller’s World of Fashion class recently visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see its famed ancient Egypt exhibit.

The class is one of the many career and technical education classes at Lindenhurst High School that give students valuable trade experiences while still in high school. In Ms. Reismiller’s class, students are looking to pursue a career in fashion design, and they have been recently studying the culture and traditions of ancient Egypt. The art and fashion from this period have served as inspiration for generations of fashion designers; this exciting trip gave the students to see it in person and derive their own inspiration.

Students Create their own Mars Rover Designs Inspired by the Book A Rover’s Story

Lindenhurst, NEW YORK (February 2024)—Fifth grade students at Harding Avenue Elementary School recently embarked on a mars rover-themed project inspired by the book A Rover’s Story. The activity tasked students with creating their own mars rovers and documenting their rovers’ various accomplishments. The activity was part of the 2023 Global Read Aloud initiative, in which students across the world read A Rover’s Story and took part in various activities related to the book.

A Rover’s Story, by Jasmine Warga, chronicles the mission of the mars rover Resilience, a fictional rover modeled after NASA’s real Perseverance and Curiosity rovers. Throughout its construction, Resilience develops a design quirk, giving it human emotions, which it brings with it on its mission. Throughout, Resilience contends with the harsh Martian environment while seeking to accomplish its mission of science and research.

In addition to designing their own rovers, the Harding Avenue students created graphic organizers detailing their rovers’ feelings regarding the various tests they undertook on the surface of mars. The students also created short videos about their rovers’ accomplishments during their missions. Parents and staff were invited to visit the “Harding Avenue Museum,” which displayed all of the students’ works.

Districtwide Effort Raises Scholarship Funds for Graduating Seniors

Lindenhurst, NEW YORK (January 2024)—Staff and students in the Lindenhurst Union Free School District are taking part in the Lindy Dollars for Scholars fundraiser. Spearheaded by the District’s mental health team and coordinated by the Lindy Social Workers and the Lindenhurst High School Student Council Club, Lindy Dollars for Scholars raises funds for graduating seniors.

Students have been decorating donation boxes in Lindenhurst green for use by each building’s staff. Each week, staff members are encouraged to donate $1 or $2 while they check their mailboxes at the school main office where the bins are located. The goal of the fundraiser is to create student, staff and community synergy while raising money for a good cause.

"Just think: If only half of our employees contributed $1 each week, by the end of the year we would be able to provide $12,600 in scholarships to deserving graduating seniors,” said Interim Superintendent Vincent Caravana.
