Student’s International Experience a Success

Student’s International Experience a Success thumbnail181165
Junior-Senior High School junior Madeleine Prucha acquired much success while participating in the Model G20 Summit (Climate Summit) last month.

For the summit, Madeleine joined a group of students from all throughout the world to accomplish a goal of creating climate policy for specific countries. Her group was given South Africa and Madeleine served as the Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications. With this role, she was responsible for creating policy to communicate climate change to the South African public and to negotiate with other groups.

Madeleine's team earned the "Most Outstanding Delegation" for their efforts in the summit. She said her experience was enriching as she learned a lot and was able to create international friendships.

Students Shine for Photography Exhibit

The district is proud to announce that five Junior-Senior High School photography students had their work accepted into the Art Guild’s My “20/20” World Photography Show exhibit. Students include Hailey Arnold, Allyson Lovera, Madeline Mistretta, Alyssa Nicolo and Daniella Pedi.

My “20/20” World show is an online juried exhibition that features photography from student artists and offers the opportunity for photographers to submit what their “20/20” vision was. As the past year limited access to the world and posed unprecedented challenges, it also sparked creativity. Students allowed their skills to shine during the difficult time of the COVID-19 pandemic and photographed images that reflected the year.

The district congratulates these students on this wonderful accomplishment. Their works will be on a virtual display on the Art Guild’s website until March 10.

Members of the Junior-Senior High School Builder's Club, Advisory Program and eighth grade students brought a smile to the faces of residents and caregivers at the Atria assisted living home in Lynbrook for Valentine's Day. Each student wrote notes of appreciation on paper hearts and then sent them to the living home, along with Valentine’s Day themed goodie bags and flowers.

The district is proud to announce that 32 Junior-Senior High School art and writing students won a total of 60 awards for their work in the 2020 Northeast Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.

For last year’s event, approximately 320,000 entries were received and viewed by more than 50 judges. More than 2,900 works of art received national recognition and included more than $300,000 in direct scholarships, and millions in tuition support being awarded.

Nine East Rockaway students were selected as Gold Key winners for the art portion of the competition. Their artwork will advance to the national level of the competition. In addition to the writing portion of the competition, junior Madeleine Prucha received four awards, including two Gold Keys, a Silver Key and an honorable mention.

Students Established Synergism During Science Lesson

Students Established Synergism During Science Lesson thumbnail180697
Junior-Senior High School students in Mrs. Patricia Refino and Mr. Andrew Kell’s earth science class teamed up and created a scaled model of the solar system.

The class began by crafting models of the planets’ diameters and then compared the diameters of the inner and outer planets. After that, students were able to measure out a scaled model of the distances between the planets in the hallway. Throughout the lesson, in-person students remained socially distant and virtual learners followed along through Google Meet live-stream.
