In February, 43 students from Calhoun High School participated in the prestigious Mathematical Association of America’s American Mathematics Competition.

The AMC is a contest that identifies the most exceptional and gifted high school students in mathematics and problem solving.

The highest score on the AMC 12 exam (the test for 11th- and 12th-graders) was earned by senior David Braunstein, and the highest score on the AMC 10 exam (the test for 9th- and 10th-grade students) was earned by freshman Amelia Seabold.

Congratulations to all the high-scorers!







Bulldogs Give Back On and Off the Ice

Members of the Bellmore-Merrick Bulldogs ice hockey team spent the weekend of Jan. 31 giving back to their community in a big way.
    
On Saturday, the team skated in an exhibition sled hockey game against the Long Island Rough Riders at Newbridge Arena to raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that helps support soldiers returning injured from battles in the war on terror.
    
The next day, the Bulldogs volunteered time out of their skates to prepare brunch for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in New Hyde Park. The Ronald McDonald House provides a haven for families with children battling serious illness. The team participated under the leadership of coaches Lee Mattes and Christopher Patten.

Poetry as performance art continued its popularity across the district, as all three high schools held their individual Poetry Out Loud recitation contests.

Poetry Out Loud is a national poetry reciting competition that encourages the study of great poetry through memorization, performance and presentation. Recitation enables students to convey the essence, tone and feeling of a poem with their voice.

During the contests, students selected a poem to recite in front of a panel of judges composed of English teachers. Judges based scores on physical presence, voice and articulation, dramatic appropriateness, level of complexity, evidence of understanding and overall performance.
Two winners from each school were selected to move on to the regional competition at Stony Brook University in February.

At Mepham, senior Lisa Condoluci earned first-place honors for her delivery of Arthur Rimbaud’s “Novel.” Senior Alyssa Rabinowitz recited Edward Hirsch’s “Poor Angels” for the second-place spot, and senior Jaime Marvin took third place for her presentation of E.E. Cummings’ “[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in].”

At Kennedy, 23 students vied for the top prizes in teacher Jeanette Pincus’ music room. In the end, the judges crowned sophomore Stephanie Person as the first-place winner for her recitation of Sylvia Path’s “The Applicant.” Second place went to junior Rachel Mashal for her recitation of Maya Angelou’s “Caged Bird.” Third place was awarded to sophomore Rebecca Stekol for her recitation of Ilya Kaminsky’s “Author’s Prayer.”  
Calhoun held its Poetry Out Loud contest on Jan. 20 in music teacher Sanford Sardo’s class. First place went to Katie Gallagher, a student in Dr. Saul Wiener’s class. Second place went to Patty Georgas, also a student of Dr. Wiener. Third place was awarded to Megan Parr, a student in Peter Magnuson’s class.

The regional competition at Stony Brook University will take place on Feb. 26.
