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!”
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! The competition took place on June 3 at Dorney Park in Bethlehem, PA. All 15 students are in 6th grade and practice each week after school.
WOW! This was a night to remember! Lloyd Harbor students gave a showstopping performance of the production "Beauty & the Beast, Jr." on June 16 and 17 at the PAC. This group of extremely talented performers had everyone shaking their heads that they were only in 5th and 6th grade. The voices, the costumes and choreography, the set design, the humor, and even the behind-the-scenes speed and efficiency of the backstage crew were extraordinary.

uperintendent, Jill M. Gierasch, hosted the annual Parent Leader Breakfast “al fresco” the morning of June 8. She articulated how important the parent community is to a school district, and that the level of involvement in CSH is extraordinary. She shared that when she became Superintendent, and saw the list of parent run committees, it was a degree of volunteerism she had never quite witnessed. Not only do these parent groups support so many programs, but they seamlessly run themselves!
The fifth grade students at West Side and Lloyd Harbor are studying POP ART (popular imagery) inspired by the American artist, Roy Lichtenstein. They learned about triptychs (3 panels that tell a story) and students were placed in groups of three. Using Lichtenstein's paintings, the students brainstormed to come up with a theme for their triptych as well as a positive message to incorporate into their image.
Music teacher, Marc Beja, took a special field trip with his High School Theatre Workshop class on June 6. Students went on tour to Goosehill Primary School, Lloyd Harbor School, and West Side School to perform Gran’s Guide to Stop an Ogre (Also Works for Witches and Bullies) to the kindergarten through third graders in all three schools.
On behalf of Administration, the students and the community, we extend our gratitude to Amelia Brogan and Julie Starrett whose terms end on July 1, 2022. The amount of time and dedication Board members serve for the school district can truly never be measured. Their commitment and involvement reach far and wide to ensure students have the tools needed to succeed in an everchanging educational landscape, constantly seeking to identify and remedy the needs of all students with profound determination.
