Calhoun Clubs Collaborate to Perform ‘Sleeping Beauty’

The Express Yourself drama club at Calhoun High School pulled off a theatrical performance of “Sleeping Beauty,” accompanied members of the school’s On Tour Company.

“Together the kids put on a great show that was very much enjoyed by students, staff and parents,” said special education teacher Wendy Simson.
Members of the singing group Crescendo also contributed with an a capella rendition of “I Hope You Dance.”

Sophomore Makayla Stapler, a first-year member of Express Yourself, said she “loved being part of a great group and worked very hard to put the show together.”

"I loved working with my buddy in the show and I had an amazing time performing,” added 10th-grader Adrian Cabreja. “It was one of the best shows ever."

Express Yourself is a drama club that helps students in the district’s special education Prep for Life program improve socialization skills and provides a form of therapy.





Calhoun Girls Track and Field Named Back-to-Back Division Champions

Calhoun Girls Track and Field Named Back-to-Back Division Champions Photo
On May 15, the young women of the district’s Calhoun High School track and field team rivaled interdistrict squad from Mepham High School to compete in the Division IIA championships.

Calhoun's division has a reputation throughout the county as being by far the toughest to win and this year was no exception, explained coach Joseph Migliano.

“The girls would face off with Mepham and Manhasset, amongst the rest of the division,” he said. “On a day that saw winds up to 25mph, Calhoun knew that they were going to have to be on their A-game to overcome, due to their youth and size.”

Freshman Elizabeth Tuzzolo started the meet strong, running the 400m hurdles and placing fourth overall.

"Elizabeth is a shining star as far as freshmen go in the county,” Migliano continued. “Her work ethic and dedication is going to take her very far in this sport.”

The rest of the team were just as successful. In the 100m dash, senior Cristin Rodriguez took first and freshman Lisa Jose placed fourth. Rodriguez once again placed first this time in the 100m high hurdles. Teammates junior Paige Sfiroudis and senior Dana Brown won second and fourth, respectively. Calhoun picked up 22 points from this race, Migliano explained.

In long jump, Sfiroudis was first and junior Katie Goodman was third. Sfiroudis also came in first in triple, while Rodriguez placed in the high jump.

"Cristin Rodriguez is truly that special athlete, that myself and the team are going to miss greatly, she's irreplaceable," said Migliano.

Junior Katie Corona won the 800m — a race that she was seeded fourth going in with three Manhasset girls above her but she upset them all to become division champion and added 10 points to the team, Migliano explained.

Rodriguez scored 30 points for Calhoun that day, while Sfiroudis was named MVP for Calhoun.

“Paige is a special girl that had a tremendous day,” Migliano said. “It wasn't long ago that she was only a stand out volleyball player, now she is a serious force in the track and field world. Not only is she a leader and one of the best jumpers in Nassau, but she is also currently ranked seventh in the state for long jump. Being a junior, the sky is really the limit for Paige and her potential."

The throwers, Jamie Campanelli, Julissa McLeod, Victoria Unz and Madison Padro, also placed in shotput and discus.

Calhoun was able to upset Manhasset and take the championship by a score of 136-118; and go on to win the Division Championship for the second consecutive year.

Calhoun’s Faith Maldonado Earns Second Place in Writing Contest

Calhoun’s Faith Maldonado Earns Second Place in Writing Contest Photo
Calhoun High School sophomore Faith Maldonado was selected as the second-place winner of the Kenneth F. Gambone Writing Contest.
 
Maldonado was nominated by her English teacher, Dawn Boland, to participate in the contest back in March. She submitted an entry about the theme “We are more alike than different” and was selected by the English department as one of four Calhoun representatives.
 
After submitting a second entry about a topic of her choice, Maldonado was selected by the Long Island Language Arts Council as the second-place winner out of all of the 10th-grade entries from Nassau and Suffolk counties.  

She has been invited by LILAC to be honored for her efforts at their spring luncheon during which she will read her submission, “Internalized Hatred and Other Handbag Accessories of a Teenage Girl.”

Math Fair Adds Up to Gold Medal for Calhoun’s Zach Neiger

Math Fair Adds Up to Gold Medal for Calhoun’s Zach Neiger Photo
Calhoun High School junior Zach Neiger’s aptitude for math dates back to a third-grade club, Math Olympiads, where he said he realized he had a knack for numbers.

“Since then I’ve always just wanted to learn more about math,” he said.

The three-year Advanced Science Research student even dedicated his project to the subject, “A Further Exploration of the Properties of Orthodiagonal Quadrilaterals.”

This research earned him a gold medal at the Al Kalfus Long Island Math Fair on April 28. He was the only student from the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District to compete. Only the top 5 percent of competitors receive one of three level medals: bronze, silver or gold.

Since being named a Long Island Math Scholar in 2016, Neiger has been studying at the invite-only Institute of Creative Problem Solving for Gifted and Talented Students, based at SUNY Old Westbury on Saturdays.

An accomplished cellist, Neiger has also competed at Science Olympiads, the Physics Bowl and Nassau County Math Competition, as well as being on the school’s Math Team.

“He is one of the most brilliant math minds to come through Calhoun, said Christine Boyce, Director of Calhoun’s Advanced Science Research Program. “Zach is a true Renaissance Man, he is tops academically, a major performer in the drama program, and cellist for the orchestra with a personality and sense of humor that are second to none.  It is a true honor to know Zach and I can not wait to see what true benefits he will bring to the world in his very bright future.”
