Red and pink signified the love in North and South middle schools in the Lynbrook Public School District to mark Valentine’s Day and spread messages of wellness and acceptance.
Throughout February, North Middle School students marked Heart Health Month by learning about healthy habits and the important function of the heart. Different exercises focusing on heart health were practiced in physical education classes, included a tennis tournament on Valentine’s Day. Red shirts with positive messages were also seen throughout the building.
At South Middle School, students celebrated Spirit Week by wearing different clothes each day of the week, such as pink, red, and heart on Valentine’s Day. Also, there was a green and gold Lynbrook spirit challenge between grades 6, 7, and 8. Classes also wore red, white, and blue to mark President’s Day before the winter recess.
