A Business Teachers Association of New York State grant is funding a community service project for middle school business students. Business teacher Nancy O’Connor recently received a $500 grant from BTANYS, which is being used to purchase fleece, no-sew blanket kits. The 75 students enrolled in the eighth-grade business management class crafted 20 homemade blankets to be used by patients at the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island.
Wantagh Middle School faculty and parents joined in celebrating the advancement of 213 eighth-grade students, who will meet more rigorous academic challenges upon entrance into high school, during the annual crossing-over ceremony held on June 8 at the high school.
Helen Yao, an eighth-grade student at Wantagh Middle School, was a top 10 winner in the Long Island Design-A-Card Contest, sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese. Her design will be made into notecards to raise scholarship money for the Judy Abrams/Margaret Fernandez National Examinations Scholarship Fund.
The Anti-Defamation League has recognized Wantagh Middle School as one of the nation’s 1,600 No Place for Hate schools. This prestigious designation was accomplished through the sponsorship of activities that promote acceptance, tolerance and kindness on campus and by sending a clear message throughout the school that all students have a place to belong.
Wantagh Middle School students Emma Alexander (grade 8), Sean Hill-Hotz (grade 6) and Nora Toscano (grade 7) are school winners of the annual 2018 Memorial Day Writing Contest. Emma was invited to read her essay at American Legion Post 1273 after Wantagh’s Memorial Day parade and ceremony, held on May 28, and received a prize from Commander Sottnick.
The Wantagh Middle School Honor Society inducted 118 new members who have displayed excellence in the areas of character, leadership, community service and scholarship. During the ceremony held in the high school auditorium on May 16, each of the inductees was also recognized as a recipient of the President’s Award for outstanding academic excellence.
Members of the National Junior Art Honor Society felt that the bathrooms at the middle school could use some sprucing up. As a community service project, they used their artistic talents to paint inspirational quotes and images on the bathrooms’ walls, completely transforming the facilities.
It was an evening of applause and admiration as more than 30 middle school students and faculty read original works and favorite literary pieces to peers and parents during the English Language Arts Department’s third annual Word on the Street Literacy Celebration.
