Notice of Public Hearing March 6

LEGAL NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that pursuant to section 466-c of the Real Property Tax Law of the State of New York, entitled “Volunteer Firefighters and Volunteer Ambulance Workers Exemption,” the Board of Education of Lindenhurst Union Free School District will hold a public hearing on Wed., Mar. 6 at 8 p.m. at the McKenna Administration Building, 350 Daniel Street, Lindenhurst, NY 11757. The purpose of this public hearing is to hear all interested parties and citizens regarding the proposed adoption of the resolution authorizing in part the aforementioned Exemption (along with such exemption for un-remarried spouses of Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers as well).  This resolution authorizes an exemption of school taxes for Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers or their surviving spouses, as provided for in Real Property Tax Law Sections 466-c and 466-h. The adoption of such a resolution will likely result in a tax shift to those individuals not entitled to this exemption.  Upon the conclusion of this public hearing, the Board of Education intends to vote on the proposed resolution.  Said hearing may be adjourned from time to time as necessary.

Albany Ave Runs a SOUP-er Bowl


Robin Cahill’s Albany Avenue Elementary School fifth-graders, together with the members of the school’s Compact committee, organized a “Souper Bowl” food drive event to benefit the Long Island Cares food Pantry in Lindenhurst. The mission was to capitalize on the Super Bowl weekend to help fight hunger and poverty in the community. During the course of five days, the students collected more than 1,400 donations of canned soups from the student body and members of staff.            

Author Visits Albany


Fourth- and fifth-grade students of Albany Avenue Elementary School recently explored the writing process with S.G. Taylor, author of the “The Watchers of the Time” book series. Taylor shared with the students some of the history of Oyster Bay and the Culper Spy Ring. He discussed how important the ring was to George Washington’s success and explored the “domino effect of history.” “The events of the past shape who we are today,” said Taylor.                 

Taylor read a selection from “The Ghosts of Raynham Hall” and answered students’ questions about his book, the history of Long Island and the writing process in general.

Planting a Library, Growing Readers


Albany Avenue Elementary School has received a grant for its kindergarten students from the Long Island Language Arts Council, “Plant a Library, Grow a Reader.”

To encourage a love of reading by “growing their own library,” each kindergarten student was presented with a book basket and selected two books of their choosing from the books provided by the grant and the administration. The young students will continue to choose a new book each month to grow their home libraries and foster a love of reading.

When asked why she thought this was a good thing for her class, kindergartener Maria said, “It is very good because if you have more books, you’ll read more.”
