The guidance department is a resourceful and essential component of student academic success, and counselors recognize that a well-balanced education is necessary for students to develop into responsible and well-rounded individuals. Guidance counselors provide various services including academic and college advisement, financial aid and scholarship informational workshops, and individual and group counseling.

Students are assigned to counselors in an alphabetical and vertical distribution, and students, parents, and the school community can meet with counselors as often as needed.  More over, as changes in graduation requirements occur, including credits, Regents examinations, and types of diplomas, counselors continue to assist students in meeting New York State standards, ensuring a timely graduation.  As a result, students are adequately prepared to continue their education into post secondary schools, thereby enabling students to attain their academic and career goals.

"The Addams Family" is Hauntingly Entertaining!

Untitled_design_(88).png thumbnail184746

The Locust Valley High School production of “The Addams Family (School Edition)” was anything but creepy. The Jesters cast and crew presented this most unusual family in a most entertaining manner. With hybrid productions that presented the previously filmed musical combined with several live performances and a Livestream only option, audiences had the choice of how to watch the musical production.

The actors owned the stage with singing, dancing and dialogue that had the audience laughing, applauding and sometimes, gasping. Bravo to the cast, crew, directors, producer and everyone who supported this live theater performance!

Mental Health Awareness Matters

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.”
