Elementary Music Showcases highlighted band and orchestra talent with outdoor performances at Bayville Intermediate and Locust Valley Intermediate Schools. The student musicians performed flawlessly for their families during these intimate concerts under beautiful skies. 

Thank you to our music staff for finding creative ways in which to hold performances!

Mental Health Awareness Matters

Throughout May, each of the LVCSD schools recognized Mental Health Awareness Month with activities promoting healthy lifestyles.

Elementary schools held a mental health spirit week, with Mindful Monday, Thoughtful Tuesday, Wellness Wednesday, Thriving Thursday and Fitness Friday. Students and staff also wore green one day to show support for mental health. During the spirit week, activities focused on clearing the mind and living a lifestyle that helps to achieve that. Yoga, drawing mandalas and creating hearts to signify mental wellness were all part of the fun.

Middle school students and staff recognized Mental Health Awareness Month each Friday. Every week focused on an activity such as getting outside and moving, performing random acts of kindness, sharing a compliment and creating smile masks. They also followed a 31-day challenge, which suggested a task for each day of the month. These included creating a music playlist of favorite songs, meditating, watching the sunset, laughing, getting more sleep and more.

At the high school, similar activities took place. The National Honor Society distributed smiley stickers on National Smile Day, a drum circle allowed students to release tension by playing the drums and counselors distributed Life Savers with a reminder to visit the counseling center anytime needed. Positive messages were posted in the halls, including on the steps leading into the school, starting everyone’s day with an uplifting message.

Superintendent of Schools Kenneth E. Graham, Ed.D., said the events that took place throughout the district were important. “We want students to know that there are ways to cope with mental health issues and that we are here to help when needed. I want to thank all of our social workers, counselors and psychologists who worked together to create a month full of healthy activities.”

Memorial Day Tributes

As elementary schools recognized Memorial Day with patriotic ceremonies, Bayville Primary School’s students quickly learned an important lesson. Principal Scott McElhiney told the children that on Memorial Day and every day, if they see a veteran, they should say thank you. The children looked at the veterans who had been invited as honor guests and they immediately took Mr. McElhiney’s advice, shouting out, “Thank You!”

It was a perfect start to Memorial Day weekend, reiterating that the holiday’s meaning is about remembering those that made sacrifices for our freedom. At all four elementary schools, students dressed in red, white and blue shared patriotic readings, performed musical numbers and played taps, the traditional bugle call played for fallen soldiers.

Middle and high school students also commemorated the holiday with lessons, artwork and the creation of bulletin boards honoring our veterans.

The Locust Valley Central School District thanks all of our veterans and wishes everyone a meaningful Memorial Day.
