Eighth-grade student Anthony Piergiovanni was the first-place, proverbial $100,000 winner of the business department’s biannual Shark Tank Challenge for his project “Ant’s Sports Store.” The business would help mold sports players and to encourage children and teens to fulfill their desires. Grace Conway and Claire Yustat were the second-place, $75,000 winners for their company called “We Can Workshop,” and Jacob Chan was the third-place, $50,000 winner for his company named “Love to Learn.”
For the third consecutive year, middle school eighth-grader William Hostetter is the winner of the school-level competition for the National Geographic Bee. Eighth-grader Jenna Miller placed second. Prior to the holiday break, preliminary rounds were conducted in all classes, and 29 students qualified to compete in the schoolwide finals on Jan. 14.
The art of Wantagh Middle School students Elizabeth Byrnes, Anna Martorella and Jon Sileo is being featured as part of the annual Jones Beach Holiday Lights Spectacular. Each year, art is submitted to the famous 2.5-mile show featuring 150 light displays with a holiday theme.
The chess club meets two times per month and all are welcome. Besides learning and playing chess, some students have introduced Uno to the group. This club includes all ability levels of chess players. The pictures are of the Middle School Chess Club, with advisor Dr. Steve Taylor.
Eighth-grade E-Business students are well-informed on the importance of a clean digital footprint. In honor of Stomp Out Bullying Day on Oct. 5, the students disseminated their knowledge to sixth-graders by hosting a digital citizenship and cyberbullying class, which emphasized that a digital footprint remains forever.
Wantagh Middle School students simply rolled out of bed and came to school in pajamas to benefit Ryan’s Case for Smiles, an organization that sews decorative and personalized pillowcases for hospitalized children. Each student wearing pajamas donated a dollar, which resulted in a collection of $326 for the organization.
Middle school sixth-grader Emma Alexander’s award-winning 2014-2015 PTA Reflections film production entry “Helping Hands” was chosen for public viewing at the New York State PTA Reflections Art Roadshow exhibit, to be held at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City from Oct. 17 to Nov. 1. The Roadshow artwork will also travel to Niagara Falls for the 119th Annual Convention where it will be on display from Nov. 13-14.
Incoming sixth-grade students and their parents eagerly lined up at registration tables on the middle school’s front lawn to receive their schedules during the school’s annual barbecue. During the event, the students were invited to tour the school, find their lockers and mingle with friends.
