Mental Health Awareness Matters

Mental_health_awareness_web.png thumbnail184626

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.

Locust Valley Central School District is pleased to announce that Allison Wasserman has been appointed Bayville Elementary School Assistant Principal. Ms. Wasserman will begin on July 1, 2021, replacing Dorothy McManus upon her retirement.

Ms. Wasserman brings enthusiasm to her new role and experience that will allow her to successfully support students, teachers and families. She currently serves as the Interim Districtwide Elementary Assistant Principal in the Plainedge School District. In this role, Ms. Wasserman has assisted teachers with curriculum planning and the utilization of technology tools, attended and turnkeyed programs to support the Teachers College Reading & Writing Program and supports the daily functions of three elementary schools, including approximately 1,200 students and 200 staff members.

Prior to taking this role, Ms. Wasserman was a K-8 literacy coach in the same district, as well as the Summer Enrichment Program Coordinator and the STARS Enrichment Academy Coordinator. She has been a reading specialist and a fifth grade teacher in the Valley Stream and East Williston School Districts, respectively.

Ms. Wasserman earned her Bachelor of Science in business administration from Hofstra University, Master of Science in literacy and Master of Science in childhood education from Hunter College and two education administration certifications from The College of Saint Rose.

“I deeply value communication and collaboration,” Ms. Wasserman said. “I am a leader who takes pride in motivating my staff through leading by example.” She looks forward to rolling up her sleeves and working shoulder to shoulder with staff, students and families to navigate challenging situations.

Ms. Wasserman was chosen following a rigorous selection process which included evaluating 200 résumés. The pool was narrowed to 20 candidates, interviewed by Superintendent of Schools Kenneth E. Graham, Ed.D., Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Anthony Davidson and Bayville Elementary School Principal Scott McElhiney. Seven candidates were recommended to a hiring committee, comprised of administrators, teachers and parents. The committee recommended three finalists, each of whom was invited to a more in-depth interview prior to Ms. Wasserman being selected for the position based on these interviews and the specific comments from the hiring committee.

Dr. Graham said that Ms. Wasserman brings a variety of skills to her new position. “Her experience makes her a well-rounded leader who I believe will lead with compassion and the kind of energy that the Bayville school community is accustomed to,” he said. “I look forward to welcoming Ms. Wasserman to the Falcon family, and I am confident she will be an asset to our school district.”
