Graduation is months away, but Wantagh High School announced Samantha Minars and Andriana Patmanidis as the Class of 2019’s valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively. Keeping with Warrior tradition, the students were congratulated during the morning announcements, and while accompanied with parents and faculty, took an official photo in front of the school sign as it flashed the good news.
Residents who attend the Board of Education’s monthly meetings will learn firsthand about high school happenings through reports delivered by student representatives Katie Browne and Melanie Volz.
The photographic works of 20 of the high school’s finest photographers, under the direction of teacher Patricia Beary, were displayed alongside other professional artists in the Explorations in Pinhole Photography Exhibit, held at the Long Island Children’s Museum’s KaleidoZone Gallery from July 31 to Labor Day.
The excessive heat did not wilt the spirits of students who toted their backpacks full of school supplies to start the 2018-19 school year on Sept. 4.
The district welcomed new faculty during the annual New Teacher Orientation Program held on Aug. 22-27.

The Board of Education reorganized and prepared for the 2018-2019 school year during its July 3 meeting.
