    Mepham Key Club Dedicates 9/11 Plaque

    Mepham High School unveiled a plaque that honors the Sept. 11 first responders on Nov. 3. Spearheaded by the school’s Key Club, the plaque is at the base of the flagpole near the Camp Avenue entrance and holds a special meaning in the community.

    Bellmore Kiwanis adviser and community member John Scalesi approached the Key Club members last year requesting if they would be interested in fundraising for a plaque remembering the first responders of 9/11.

    “Between our relationship with the Kiwanis and our mission to encourage strong community values in the Key Club, this was an ideal project for us to partake in,” said Key Club adviser and school social worker Theana Cheliotes.

    Many of the club’s members took an interest in fundraising and student Kayleigh Specht took a lead role in procuring the plaque.

    “I was happy to conduct this presentation and share in the honor,” said Cheliotes. “It was to help guide our students to do such a nice thing.” 

    The color guard of the Nassau County Police Department presented flags to a crowd that included local elected officials and Mary Ann Rand of Bellmore, who lost her son, Adam Rand, on 9/11. During the ceremony, North Bellmore Fire Commissioner Edward Kraus addressed the crowd. He also presented Principal Eric Gomez with a piece of steel from the World Trade Center site.

    Seniors in Mepham High School’s Participation in Government and Senior Experience class set up the school’s third Flag Field of Honor as part of their Senior Service Learning Project on Nov. 5.

    Students, along with teachers, administrators, Superintendent of Schools John DeTommaso and board of education trustee Steve Enella, all pitched in on the rainy morning to dig holes, unbox flags and dot the lawn in red, white and blue.

    “The field of honor is set up each year to pay tribute to America's service men and women, veterans, 9/11 first responders and victims,” said teacher and coordinator Kerry Dennis.

    This year, 303 American and military branch flags were sold. 
    “All proceeds from this year's Flag Field of Honor will benefit Boots on the Ground New York, a local organization dedicated to helping America's veterans and current service men and women,” added teacher and coordinator Chris Patten.

    The flags will be on display along the Camp Avenue side of the school until Dec. 9.

    Seniors in Kerry Dennis’ Gilder Lehrman research class, Uncovering the Past, spent Nov. 3 listening to the stories of Mepham High School alumni.

    Guests included Maggie Hennessey, Class of 1945; Roy Probeyahn, Class of 1956; Dr. David Krinsky, Class of 1967; Karen Ponton, Class of 1983; Mepham librarian Shari Stack, Class of 1998 and Mepham special education teacher Anthony Augugliaro, Class of 2009. 

    “The meet and greet is the final component of The Mepham Project, which provides students the opportunity to study the rich history of Mepham,” Dennis said. “Their stories were recorded and will join the collection that began when the project was first introduced in the fall of 2009.”

    Merrick Avenue Middle School English teacher Michael Dlugozima and Mepham High School English teacher Erica Wagner have been recognized as New York State English Council Educators of Excellence.

    “Mr. Dlugozima has taught seventh- and eighth-grade English honors, regulars, and collaborative classes for 29 years in the Central High School District,” said Board Member Wendy Garguilo as she recognized him at the Nov. 1 meeting. “He is a pioneer of 21st-centruy teaching and learning and is always the first to experiment with and implement new strategies, techniques and technologies in the classroom. He is known for teaching in a virtually paperless environment and often engages his students in lessons by flipping his classroom, utilizing Google Apps, and maintaining an interactive teacher website and blog. He is the driving force behind the creation of the new inquiry-based research class titled “RISE” (Research-Based Independent Student Centered Explorations).”

    Dlugozima has also been instrumental in mapping out the Humanities curriculum, in which the English and social studies teacher periodically co-teach and make cross-curricular connections between the two disciplines. 

    As internship coordinator for Mepham’s Senior Experience Program, a responsibility she assumed in 2016, Ms. Wagner worked to establish Mepham’s first ever Senior Experience Internship Fair which gave students an opportunity to practice their networking and interviewing skills with professions in their field of interest. 

    “In the 15 years that Mrs. Wagner has been a member of the Mepham High School family, she has become a truly ubiquitous presence in the school,” said Board Vice President Nina Lanci. “As a teacher of 11th-grade English and College Public Speaking, Ms. Wagner works closely with students to help them establish their voice as writers and speakers.” 

    Each year the council recognizes excellence in teaching by presenting awards to deserving educators who have been nominated by their schools with letters of recommendation from their colleagues and former students and then selected by the council.

    In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, students at Mepham High School were engaged in a cultural experience with a Day of the Dead activity on Oct. 23.

    “They learned about the significance of this celebration in Mexican culture,” said world languages department chairperson Rosa Kaplan. “Students then had the opportunity to paint and take home canvases with sugar skulls, a traditional symbol of the Day of the Dead.”

    Key to My Art studio in Amityville led the step-by-step art instruction and Spanish teacher, Danielle McNeil organized the event.

    This event was offered by Mepham’s ELITE (Enriching Learners in Tomorrow's Education) after-school program, which is financially supported by the Mepham Alumni Association. The ELITE Program aims to engage and inspire students by providing after-school enrichment opportunities.
