The Class of 2026 is officially “Moving Up” to the high school! Principal, Daniel Danbusky exclaimed, “I have the distinct privilege of watching this group of youngsters grow and mature from that group of eager and anxious young teens who entered the Jr High School on a hot summer day in August into a formidable class of self-confident adults, six years later as they seek out their own paths in life.”
Principal, Valerie Massimo, addressed the 6th graders at their Moving Up ceremony on June 23, acknowledging first and foremost that, “Your Lloyd Harbor years were certainly not what any of us expected when they started here. They involved challenges and changes that were unfamiliar and unnatural. You lived through a most unusual era and persevered! Sixth Graders - I know I speak for all of the adults in your lives when I say that we are so incredibly proud of what you have accomplished!”
It was a wonderful ceremony for the students at West Side Elementary School on June 22 at the PAC. Each and every West Side graduate had a turn to speak and reflect upon their journey at West Side, a long-standing tradition that speaks volumes about the history of West Side pride. Principal, Alison Hazut, addressed the 6th grade class marveling at all they have accomplished over the past five years at West Side, the many friends they have made, all that they have learned and the special traditions they have continued even during the trials of a pandemic.
Moving Up Day was a spectacular celebration on June 21, held outdoors under the amphitheater and sunshine in the courtyard. It was bittersweet as Principal, Lynn Herschlein, delivered her final farewell speech ending her tenure as Goosehill principal after 11 years. The final “Goosehill Song” held special meaning this year, and it was hard for parents and Ms. Herschlein to hold back a few tears.
Marine Biology Teacher, Ms. Erin Oshan, and her students participated in the “Trout in the Classroom” project which is a nationwide organization. Local liaison, Mr. John Fischer, from Trout Unlimited helped to spearhead the project this past fall which in turn was then completed by students in the Oceanography class. The eggs were received in December, and after hatching in late January students nurtured them until they reached about 3 inches in length.
The annual Marine Biology Club Beach Clean Up was another great success on May 21 at West Neck Beach in Lloyd Harbor. This community service activity is sponsored twice a year by the club, one in the spring and one in the fall. Students from grades 7-12 participate along with Marine Bio Club advisor, Ms. Erin Oshan. Thank you so much for keeping our local beach areas clean for our community!
Congratulations to the Lloyd Harbor Choir Group “The Harbortones” along with music teacher and Director, Mr. Daniel Santangelo, for winning 1st place in their division at Music in the Parks!
