Students braved the waves on Sept. 10, when they attended the annual Surfers Healing Surf Camp in Lido Beach. Members of Long Beach High School’s Life Skills program and the district’s special education program joined attendees from neighboring schools for an uplifting and sensational experience.

Professional Surfers Healing instructors fit participants for life jackets and accompanied them into the water on long boards. They paddled out and guided the students in eventually standing and riding waves back to the shore. Many administrators and staff members cheered them on from the sand, and high school volunteers were on-site to distribute medals share encouragement. 

Surfers Healing seeks to enhance the lives of children and teens with special needs, specifically those with autism. The organization’s stellar team, coupled with the ocean’s therapeutic effect has been making a difference in the lives of its participants for more than 18 years. This was one of many one-day Surfers Healing camps held across the nation and was organized in partnership with the Town of Hempstead.

Memory Project Brings Joy Through Art

Memory Project Brings Joy Through Art  thumbnail133496

In June, Eric Fox’s IB Visual Art students at Long Beach High School once again completed portraits for the Memory Project. The Memory Project invites high school art students to cultivate global kindness by creating portraits as special gifts for children around the world. These portraits help the children feel valued and important, show them that many people care about their wellbeing, and provide them with a special childhood memory for the future.

This year the portraits were sent to children in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The video shows the process from creating the portraits here in Long Beach to their delivery to schools and orphanages in Afghanistan and Pakistan. This is the first time that the Memory Project has worked with groups in Pakistan, and Long Beach High School is proud to have been a part of it!
