Schools in the Locust Valley Central School District held activities focused on making smart decisions, from staying drug free to being inclusive.

The Locust Valley High School SADD Club organized many events for Red Ribbon Week centered around this year’s theme, Send a Message, Stay Drug Free. Students and staff dressed in red clothes adorned with red ribbons and participated in activities focused on promoting healthy choices. High school psychologists Adriana Marin and Kristen Sylvan, the high school SADD advisers, assisted club members with the coordination of the week’s events. 

Representatives from the Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence spoke to high school students about the dangers of vaping, shared information on how to get help and encouraged the audience to watch for signs of dependence in their friends.

“The SADD Club celebrates Red Ribbon Week to help engage students and staff in conversations regarding healthy decision-making and positive coping strategies,” Dr. Marin said. “The goal of the week is to help empower our students if they are ever faced with difficult decisions.”

Ms. Sylvan said that having outside presentations helps provide important information to students. “We are happy to have speakers from LICADD here to share professional insight on important topics,” she said.

Locust Valley Middle School’s SADD Club shared a short video for students to watch that reinforced the Red Ribbon Week theme. The SADD Club members hung banners in the school with post-it notes that had positive messages written on them.  Throughout the week, students were invited to take one of the notes for themselves or to pass along to other students who may need support. Students were also encouraged to take pictures of any notes received and share them with the hashtag #sendamessage.  

Middle school SADD advisors Amanda Noren and Liz DeGennaro helped organize the events. “The goal was to spread positivity throughout the building,” Ms. Noren said.


Building Relationships Through Bilingual Nights

The community came together as more than 125 parents attended the district’s bilingual event, held over two nights for Spanish-speaking families from all of the LVCSD schools.

Organized and facilitated by Cyndy Ergen, a teaching assistant at Locust Valley Intermediate School, the event provided parents with helpful information to ensure that their children succeed in school. Ms. Ergen, who translates many district documents into Spanish for non-English-speaking families, shared the district calendar, important phone numbers and many helpful tips that would not only benefit students, but help parents and guardians feel more comfortable being part of the LVCSD community.  

Several district administrators and building faculty members were introduced, shared information about their departments and made the attendees feel comfortable by speaking in their native language and reminding them that the district will assist them in any way possible.

Ms. Ergen has been running this event for five years and said the Spanish-speaking community is appreciative that the information shared allows them to become more involved in the education of their children.

“Many of these families want to be more involved but don’t know how,” Ms. Ergen said. “By showing them where to find information, how to view the website in their own language and who to contact for various topics, they now feel more comfortable.”

Interim Superintendent of Schools, Thomas P. Dolan, Ed.D., said bilingual nights are important events that helps build bridges to connect all facets of the community. “When we work to make the entire community feel welcome, it benefits all of our students,” he said.

Ms. Ergen wishes to thank the school staff members and representatives from outside organizations that assisted in making the bilingual nights a success.

Digging Deep to Help Others

Varsity and junior varsity volleyball players ditched their usual Falcon uniforms to wear pink during their annual Dig Pink fundraiser and nonleague game against Glen Cove High School.

The Falcons held a bake sale, with the proceeds going to the Dig Pink Side-Out Foundation. Dig Pink is a national breast cancer rally organized by the Side-Out Foundation, which encourages middle school and high school volleyball teams to hold events supporting the cause each October.

The pink-themed bake sale raised more than $500 for the cause, but just as importantly, raised awareness of an important topic. Varsity coach Bobbee Brancaccio said the event means a lot to the volleyball players. ‘They want to see fewer people diagnosed with cancer, and this is one way they can make a difference,” she said.

Homecoming Victory!

The Locust Valley High School Falcons clinched a homecoming win against the West Hempstead Rams, with a final score of 40-7. Excellent coaching, talented players and support from the fans all contributed to this success.

The cheerleading and kickline squads along with the high school’s pep band performed at halftime, increasing an already spirit-filled day. Halftime festivities also included crowning juniors Matt Warner and Alyssa Zambuto as homecoming prince and princess, and seniors Matt Barnaby and Lily Dickman as king and queen. The Class of 2022 earned prizes for winning the spirit and float contests, which were based around the homecoming theme of “America.”

Each high school class manned their own table offering Falcon gear for sale, pumpkins to paint, a photo booth and snacks, all providing additional fun for the crowd and raising funds for their individual grades.

Members of Athletic Council worked at the concession stand selling refreshments and organized the day’s events, as well as Spirit Week and the Pep Rally, which both helped to get everyone ready to cheer the Falcons on. With a great win, all of the efforts were clearly a success!
