Heather Berberich, a junior at Calhoun High School, recently completed a Girl Scout Gold Award by researching and piloting a self-defense program as a unit during gym classes.

Berberich, 17, said she was motivated to instill a sense of empowerment in her peer group.

Under the guidance of physical education teacher Gregg Muscarella and Athletic Director Richard Diodati, the program involved a local instructor from Goshinkan Ju-Jitsu Dojo in Merrick who offered various self-defense techniques. 

“I settled on jiujitsu because it focuses on getting away safely,” she said.

“The ultimate goal was to teach students how to get themselves out of a potentially dangerous situation utilizing non-violent maneuvers,” Berberich said. “These life skills could be carried over forever.”

Isabelle Gross from  Mepham High School and Faith Maldonado of Calhoun High School were recently selected for a 2018 Achievement Award in Writing, given by the National Council of Teachers of English.

Mepham AP Language and Composition teacher Marc Achtziger encouraged Isabelle and fellow student Nicole Farina to enter the local contest. A panel of English teachers evaluated all of Mepham’s entries anonymously and unanimously selected Isabelle and Nicole to move forward. 

“Both are gifted writers and hard workers,” said Achtziger. 

Farina received a Certificate of Nomination to recognize her success at the local level. Isabelle received a Certificate of Superior Writing. 

Maldonado was also a second-place winner as a sophomore last year in the Long Island Language Arts Council’s Gambone Writing Contest which is a writing contest that emulates the NCTE national contest and was recently inducted into Calhoun’s National English Honor Society.

“Faith has proven herself to be a lover of language who is able to communicate a unique, humorous voice in her creative writing,” said English Chairperson Kim Serpe. 

The NCTE Achievement Awards in Writing is a school-based writing program established in 1957 to encourage high school students to write and to recognize some of the best student writers in the nation. Only students who are juniors may participate.

The senior leadership class at Calhoun High School recently completed a community service project for Karen's Hope.

Students from the senior leadership class volunteered on May 20 to spruce up the landscaping of a house in Seaford.

“The students fundraised for the past few weeks by selling Ralph's Italian Ices after school and used the proceeds to purchase all the materials needed to landscape of one of Karen's Hopes houses,” said teacher Brian Joyce.

Karen’s Hope aims to empower individuals with disabilities to lead more independent lives by providing housing, as well as educational and social programs after age 21.
