District Holds College Planning Night

Calhoun High School played host to an expansive and informative college planning night on March 12. The event covered the multiple facets of college entry and success for students thinking about continuing their education.

The evening kicked off with opening remarks by Assistant Principal Eric Gomez, who welcomed the students and parents in attendance before dismissing them to smaller classrooms for specific presentations.

In the auditorium, a representative from the SUNY system dispelled myths and illuminated facts about attending a SUNY college. Other discussions included a seminar on college readiness and academic rigor with representatives from Binghamton, Adelphi and Gettysburg College. Saul Lerner, the district’s athletics and physical education director, led a discussion on the role of athletics in the college admissions process. Other representatives in attendance included a recruiter for Duke University, an official with Harvard University, a panel of Long Island private schools and a representative from the CUNY system.

Workshops also covered how to apply for financial aid, how to write the college essay and how to prepare for the SAT or ACT. The well-attended event drew parents, guardians and students from across the district.

Calhoun to Present ‘Mary Poppins’

Calhoun will be one of the first high schools on Long Island to produce Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's “Mary Poppins.” The school’s On Tour Company will bring the classic Disney film and Broadway show hybrid to life on the Calhoun auditorium stage for three performances.

Showtimes are March 21 and March 27 at 7:30 p.m., and March 28 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 for seniors and students, $15 for adults, and can be purchased at the door.

Freshmen Think About Safe Technology Use

A special agent with the FBI Cyber Crime unit paid a visit to the district over three days in February and March to speak with ninth-graders about the dangers of the Internet and how to make positive decisions when using technology.

FBI Special Agent Danielle Messineo led students at all three high schools through a PowerPoint presentation that covered everything from cyberbullying to Internet predators to inappropriate texting.

Messineo reminded students that if they are on social networking sites such as Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, they should keep their accounts set to private, only accept requests from people they know, and avoid profile pictures that might give predators a clue about where they live or what school they attend.

When presenting on cyberbullying, Messineo showed a sobering video recorded by Amanda Todd, a 14-year-old girl who committed suicide days after recording the video, in which she begged for help from anyone who might be watching. The video reminded students to think about potentially tragic consequences before engaging in ridiculing their peers, especially online.

The presentation also emphasized that students should refrain from sending inappropriate photographs and text messages, even to those whom they trust, because of the viral capabilities of modern technology. A clever video showed just how quickly a young girl’s racy photograph sent to her boyfriend could spread through the entire school and eventually back to her own family members.

The Internet safety and cyberbullying assembly was organized by the district’s Community Parent Center, led by director Wendy Tepfer. Messineo visited Kennedy High School on Feb. 25. She visited Calhoun the next day and finished out her visits at Mepham on March 3.
