DWI Simulation & Prevention Assembly

Today Lyndonville student’s grades 10th-12th, learned about the dangers of drinking and driving. The day started with students witnessing volunteer fire fighters, EMT, law enforcement and senior class students taking on the role of a simulated car crash as a result of drinking and driving. Students were surprised at the length of time it can take to provide the help needed for those hurt. Seeing the firemen and EMT personnel working as hard as they could and still the amount of time the injured where in the car while the dismantled the vehicle. A few students said that the simulation was at times difficult to watch but they were thankful to all those who helped to put things in perspective.

Following the simulated crash student then met Justin A. Randall Jr. Randall was injured from drinking and driving while in college. He drove home after a party that he had been drinking at ultimately crashed his vehicle. Randall was the only one involved in the crash that left him unable to walk, use his left arm and speak. He now visits organizations with an interpreter to tell his story in hopes to educated others to not make the same mistake.

Students then heard from Orleans County Sheriffs about the importance of not being distracted with driving by cell phones, radios, Ipads, etc.

Seniors were then given a special t-shirt to show their support to not drink and drive or be a distracted driver. The t-shirt logo was created by a 9th grade Lyndonville student who was selected as the winning design among many applicants.

Homecoming Week

Homecoming week has started in Lyndonville! The first day, Merica Monday was a success. Tuesday was color day and the school tried out a new take on a board game, Hungry Hungry Hippos! Students laid down on a scooter and were pushed around by a partner, trying to capture balls in their basket and get them in the goal. Students really enjoyed the new game and showed their school spirit in dressing up!
