As students in the Lynbrook Public Schools began a new school year, they were introduced to new teachers, new friends, and a host of new and expanded programs to support their continued academic growth.
The Read 180 program has been expanded from middle school to the elementary and high schools. Teachers will also have additional tools to evaluate student progress through data-driven instruction. FASTT Math and Fraction Nation have been introduced to improve K-8 arithmetic skills. In addition, the science research program has been revamped this year, using a team teaching approach at the high school and adding a morning elective program for eighth-graders.
There were also several significant improvements to facilities around the district. Work on the new multi-sport turf field at Marion Street School moved along smoothly over the summer and should be complete in time for the homecoming football game. Work is also progressing on schedule for the new baseball field being constructed at South Middle School.
A newly renovated boys’ restroom and adult unisex restroom have been completed at West School. A girls’ room at the high school also received a makeover.
After plans were reviewed by the state, a project at North Middle School, which will include the construction of an elevator, music rooms, district storage, team room and exterior restrooms, as well as the re-sodding of the athletic field, has progressed to the engineering phase.
