Kennedy’s Junior Class Hosts Short Stacks for a Tall Cause


The junior class at Kennedy High School hosted a pancake breakfast fundraiser to help a younger member of the community.

Short Stacks for a Tall Cause was held on Oct. 16 to benefit the family of a 12-year-old Merrick boy fighting a rare form of cancer.

Nearly $1,500 was raised for Jake Lonigro and his family. Jake has an older sibling that attends Kennedy.

“The whole event and planning for it has been the most rewarding outside of the classroom experience for me,” said social studies teacher Kristy Faulkner.

Kennedy’s Perri Zilberman named Siemens Semifinalist

Perri Zilberman, a senior at Kennedy High School, has been named a semifinalist in the 2016 Siemens Competition.
Zilberman has been recognized for his research on “The Correlation Between Debris Disks and Hot Jupiters.”
"I am so proud of Perri; he is an outstanding young scientist,” said Science Chairperson Robert Soel. “Perri's research on exoplanets is on the cutting edge of astronomy and astrophysics. His ongoing passion for astronomy, and his diligence and attentiveness to his own research make him a wonderful role model for our science research students across the district."

The Siemens Competition is the nation’s premier competition in math, science and technology for high school students. Every year, students submit innovative individual and team research projects to regional and national levels of competition as they vie for college scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $100,000. The Siemens Competition honors the best and brightest students for their accomplishments in math, science and technology– students who are changing the world for the better.

From the more than 1,600 projects submitted, 498 students have been selected this year as semifinalists.

Cougars Roar Past Indians at Homecoming


Kennedy High School football emerged victorious over Sewanhaka High School at their homecoming match up on Oct. 1.

The Cougars won 30-16 against the Indians under Friday Night Lights and amidst a constant drizzle of rain.

PTA members peddled much-needed warm weather gear and members of the district’s C.H.A.M.P. (Culinary and Hospitality Applied Management Program) grilled up burgers and hot dogs for attendees to snack on.

“The kids worked hard to set up for tonight’s crowd and will soon be receiving authentic chef coats shortly,” said Chef Instructor Michael DiGiovanni.

Alumni football members joined current players in the locker room for a pep talk ahead of the big game.

“This is the only sport where you can’t just do it alone,” said Paul Auersperg, a 1982 graduate.

Emily Herrera and Ron Lampert were crowned homecoming king and queen following a vibrant performance by the kickline team. The varsity cheer squad kept school spirit going along the sidelines throughout the game. Superintendent of Schools John DeTommaso, Assistant Superintendent, Curriculum and Instruction David Seinfeld and Legislator Steve Rhoads were also on hand to see the Cougar win.

“A little wet weather can’t dampen Cougar spirit,” said DeTommaso.
