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.

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.

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.

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.
