The Lindenhurst Board of Education Community Forum on June 12, held at the McKenna Administration Building was a busy evening. Amid the newly decorated student art displays in the building’s All-Purpose room, several awards and recognitions were presented.  

The Pride of Lindenhurst Award is presented annually in several categories by the members of the Board of Education in recognition of an outstanding contribution that inspires pride in the Lindenhurst Union Free School District. This year’s Pride of Lindenhurst in the community category was given to Mr. Gerard Sherlock who has spent over 20 years serving the children of Lindenhurst through the Lindenhurst National Little League Association.

Sue Gorman, Office Assistant in the district’s Special Education Department, was recognized as the staff recipient of the prestigious award for the over 20 years of hard work and dedication she has put forth on behalf of the district’s students.

Also recognized with a Pride of Lindenhurst Award, were the members of the Harding Avenue Book Cafe, who recently raised $1200 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Additionally, several teachers received tenure and approximately 85 Lindenhurst High School students were recognized for obtaining the New York State Seal of Biliteracy. The seal was established to recognize high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing in one or more languages, in addition to English.

Moody's upgrades Lindenhurst UFSD's (NY) GO bonds to Aa2

The district is proud to report that it has established a stable, positive financial position, enabling the Moody’s Investors Service to grant the district an Aa2 Moody’s rating, raising the district’s credit score.

“The benefit of this upgrade is that Lindenhurst will now be able to secure any required financing, such as Tax Anticipation Notes (TANs), at more favorable (e.g. lower) rates and can also issue bonds at lower coupon rates resulting in a decrease in interest charges,” said Assistant Superintendent for Business, Dr. Grace Chan.

According to Moody’s, the Aa2 rating “is driven by the Lindenhurst UFSD’s strong operating performance and multi-year trend of positive tax base growth, which have collectively strengthened the district’s credit profile to a level sufficient for the higher rating category.”

Lindenhurst Middle School students explored the world from their very own school’s gymnasium during the school’s 15th annual International Day. In small teams of two or three, approximately 300 middle school seventh and eighth graders, and sixth graders in a foreign language club, set up booths that detailed different countries around the world. Students displayed photos and memorabilia as well as served traditional foods from the countries they researched. They also played music native to these countries. Throughout the day, votes were cast and students were selected as the winner of various categories.
