‘Shattered Dreams’ Promotes Responsibility

The Lindenhurst High School Student Council 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 while intoxicated after a party. The junior and senior classes looked on as various community entities, including local fire and police responded to the mock scene behind the high school. They watched as police officers tested and “arrested” their classmate whose decision to drive 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, Certified Speaking Professional, Bobby Petrocelli, spoke with students and shared his experience with a drunk driver. The experience claimed the life of his young wife and changed him forever. He explored with students the power of each decision they make. He also encouraged them to recognize all of the ways in which they matter.

Lindy's Finest Take on the Empire State Games

Lindenhurst students participated in the Nassau County Victory Challenge Empire State Games for the Physically Challenged, held recently at the Mitchel Athletic Complex in Uniondale. Athletes and student buddies participated in a series of activities and races including the 100-meter race and the discus throw. Faculty, parents, aides and administrators cheered the athletes as they worked to achieve their goals.

The student-athletes, who wore tie-dyed green T-shirts to showcase their pride in the district, joined in the spirited competition against each other and other schools from across Long Island. The games were coordinated for Lindenhurst by teacher Karen Parpounas and Courtney Whalley, chairperson for the Elementary Committee on Special Education.

“The Empire State Games provide a unique opportunity for our students to challenge themselves individually outside of the classroom setting, while still enjoying the social comradery that comes with being a part of something much larger,” said Ms. Whalley.

On June 11, a ceremony was held at the Lindenhurst Middle School to honor both athletes and Buddies.
