It was a day of patriotism for Wantagh Middle School students who were winners in the annual Memorial Day Writing Contest, sponsored by American Legion Post 1273.

For the second consecutive year, the Anti-Defamation League has recognized Wantagh Middle School as one of the nation’s 1,600 No Place for Hate schools.
