Each year in October, the Central Parent Council (CPC) proudly recognizes the Board of Education for National School Board Recognition month, an opportunity to raise community awareness and understanding about the crucial role school board members have within a school district. It is a time to say thank you and share appreciation for the hard work, devotion and commitment school board members put to task voluntarily all year long to ensure all students succeed.
"We Will Never Forget" In recognition of the 20th anniversary of September 11, Lloyd Harbor School showed its support and remembrance in many ways. Principal Valerie Massimo, Assistant to the Principal Kristen Sewell, and Library Media Specialist Whitney O’Donnell collaborated on how to best address an understanding through literature. Ms. Massimo shared, “In addition to our participation in the 9/11 District-wide Remembrance Event on Seahawk Field, we began our year with a school-wide read using a book entitled “Courage” by Bernard Waber.
If you stroll the hallways of Lloyd Harbor, you will be introduced to the many student “All About Me” bulletin boards. Students shared details about themselves with fellow classmates, through clever puzzle boards or interactive self-portrait faces that pulled down to reveal personality traits.
A warm welcome to our newest staff! Each year an orientation is held to acclimate new staff to the district and introduce them to the culture of the community. In August, teachers new to the district had an opportunity to hear from veteran teaching staff, engage in hands-on practices designed to engrain a sense of teamwork and partnership, meet with leaders of curriculum and instruction, and hear from the administrative team along with Amelia Brogan, president of the Board of Education.

“How thrilling it was to welcome back 374 children, including 45 new students. I want to thank the LHSPTG for the work they do over the summer to prepare for the new year, as well as the Board of Education for all their support. The new family orientation and open house events helped families transition back to school! Our summer Ambassador Program allowed new students to make friends before the start of school. On opening day, the dedication and passion of the LHS staff made our school environment feel special, welcoming, and inclusive! Our Leo the Lion mascot greeted students off the bus.
