Exploring Teamwork with Islanders


Students in grades kindergarten through second at William Rall Elementary School learned a lot about teamwork during a recent visit from “Sparky” the NY Islanders’ mascot and Dina Tsiorvas, an Islanders’ representative. The students watched a video in which members of the team shared what working as a team meant to them on the ice and in the community.

The concept of teamwork was illustrated further when Jonathan, a Rall student, and Marie Cohen, a Rall teacher, raced to dress in hockey gear. Jonathan had the help of a team, while Mrs. Cohen did not. The students saw firsthand how working together can lead to success.                    

At Lindenhurst Middle School, sixth-graders explored a similar message and a visit from Islanders center, Casey Cizikas, and goalie, Thomas Greiss, who described the similarities between hard work, teamwork and positive choices made on the ice and those made in classroom. The players explained to the students that both lead to success.            

The visit was part of the “Islander School Day” assembly program in which team players select and visit approximately 10 to 13 schools throughout Long Island and Brooklyn. The middle school was selected to participate based upon their ability to work together to accomplish goals, make a difference in the community and, of course, show their Islanders team spirit.            

After the presentation, students asked the players questions, took photos and received autographs.

Bringing Books to Life at West Gates


Recently, the fifth-grade students of West Gates Avenue performed a reader’s theater presentation of Jerry Spinelli’s book “Maniac Magee” for an audience of family and friends.            

The students read the book together in their respective classes. Sections of the book were divided between Casey DeNatalie’s, Michelle Perino’s, Rob Maffei’s and Gregg Fiori’s classes, and the students then wrote their own scripts based upon those sections and acted them out before entertained audiences.

We Are the Champions


Kudos to the Lindenhurst High School varsity football team, led by head coach Nick Lombardo, which, on Nov. 26, became the Long Island champions for the first time in Lindy history.            

The undefeated Bulldogs of Lindenhurst took to the field at the Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium on the Stony Brook University campus and reigned victorious over the Sailors of Oceanside, with a score of 40-23. 

Rall Writes Notes of Gratitude


Throughout the district, students recognized Veterans Day and demonstrated their gratitude to those who served the country. Some colored patriotic pictures and others, like the second-grade students in Dawn Rosen and Jennifer Villardi’s class at William Rall Elementary School wrote friendly letters to troops to thank them for their service through Operation Gratitude.      

According to their website, Operation Gratitude is an organization responsible for sending more than 200,000 care packages to veterans, first responders, new recruits, wounded heroes and their caregivers. The student’s letters will accompany the care packages. Students of Rall also donated their Halloween Candy to the cause.          

Lindenhurst GI ‘GO-es Jeans’ for Troops


The administration, faculty and staff of Lindenhurst Middle School and Daniel Street Elementary School, demonstrated their support for veterans on Nov. 8 by participating in the GI Go Jeans for Troops campaign’s Nationwide Dress Down Day. Participants made a monetary donation of at least $5 to help veterans and wore jeans to work in a show of support to those who served the country. The staff raised close to $500 collectively to benefit the cause.
