Brain Challenge at Lloyd Harbor
Lloyd Harbor Elementary School students participated in a series of brain challenge activities recently with Hollyrock Entertainment.
Every student had the chance to participate, and classmates cheered on their teams as
students shared their knowledge and skills in trivia games about history and geography, as well as
math problems, spelling challenges, dance-offs, hula hooping, Simon Says and more. Even the
teachers could win points for their teams when quizzed Jeopardy style.
The Harborfields Central School District has been honored for the third year in a row as one of the Best Communities for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation, one of only 738 such districts nationwide. This designation is awarded to districts throughout the country that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to their students.
“I can’t say enough about how everybody in Harborfields – the Board of Education, administration, staff, parents, students and the community as a whole – stands behind the arts and demonstrates incredible commitment to supporting music education,” K-12 Music Department Coordinator Dan Bilawsky said. “While we’ve seen tremendous difficulties and weathered so many changes in the past two years, Harborfields has never wavered in its support of music in our schools.”
