District Recognizes Scholar Athlete

At the December Board of Education meeting, Board members and administrators recognized Calhoun High School senior Griffin Miller for his recent selection as a News 12 Scholar Athlete.

Miller, the senior class president and student representative on the Board of Education, was presented with a citation from Board Vice President George Haile, who read his impressive resume before a packed audience.

Miller is a two-sport athlete and was captain of the Colts varsity football team this fall. He is also a member of the lacrosse team, for which he will be playing his third year as goaltender this spring. Academically, he is an exemplary scholar, with a 98.48 GPA and membership in the National Honor Society and Calhoun’s award-winning DECA club.

After graduating from Calhoun this June, Miller will be attending Dartmouth College.

Lady Sharks Recognized at Board Meeting

The Board of Education recognized members of the district’s aquatic team, the Bellmore-Merrick Sharks, for their remarkable 2014 season.
During the Board’s December meeting, the Lady Sharks were presented with a citation from Board President Joann DeLauter after the team place second in the state at the Swimming and Diving Championships held at Ithaca College two weeks prior.|

In addition to their success at the state meet, the Lady Sharks broke the Nassau County record in the 200 medley relay. The relay, comprised of Mepham’s Jaimie Kaefer and Liz Walsh, Calhoun’s Georgeanne Zimmerman and John F. Kennedy’s Paige Kaplan, finished fourth in the state.

Kaplan also won the state championship in the 100-yard butterfly, setting a new Nassau County record, and tied for fifth in the 200 individual medley.
The 200 freestyle relay, comprised of Jessica Arana, Kerry Giovanniello, Kaefer and Kaplan, finished eighth in the state.

Special Needs Students Explore Their Future

Calhoun hosted Bellmore-Merrick’s annual SEPTA College and Higher Education Planning Night for students with special learning needs on Nov. 6.

One of SEPTA’s main goals is to give families and students the opportunity to become educated consumers about relevant services and supports available to them. The event is designed so students, parents and faculty have the opportunity to meet disability service representatives from Long Island schools and agencies, as well as representatives from various vocational programs. The combination of information tables and guest speaker workshops allowed participants to individualize their experience to fit their needs.

In the past, more than 40 colleges, trade schools and agencies have participated, drawing more than 300 attendees, and this year was no different. It was the combination of everyone’s effort that made this night a huge success.
