Eighth-grade team members Sean Browne, Emma Caputo, Abigail Conway and Natasha Meagher finished in third place. Skylar Mondelli, Jacklynn LaMacchia, Bridget Toscano, and Cate Russo also represented the district on the sixth-grade level. The club raised and donated $600 to the organization.
The middle school eighth-grade business management class participated in a six-week Junior Achievement program called, “It’s My Business.” The program focused on entrepreneurship and collaboration and was a perfect lead to the class’ final Shark Tank project.
The district is pleased to announce that 12 elementary, 13 middle school and 13 high school student-musicians were selected to participate in the Nassau Music Educators Association All-County festivals, held in January at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts. Selection was based on the students’ individual New York State School Music Association evaluation scores and teacher recommendations, as well as evaluations during solo performances at regional music festivals.
Michael Michitsch, a seventh-grade student at the middle school, is the winner in the school-level competition for the National Geographic Bee. He will now take a test for a chance to participate in the state finals. Eighth-grader Evan Thole placed second and seventh-grader Heather Sheridan placed third.
eventh-grade students in Kim Davis’ English language arts class at the middle school have a deeper understanding of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” The students have been acting out scenes of this beloved holiday favorite as part of a study on the genre of drama.
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.
