    Documentary filmmaker Jeremy Newberger, of Emmy-nominated Ironbound Films, visited with the students of the Bellmore-Merrick Broadcasting program on April 12.  

    Newberger spent the morning discussing the world of documentary filmmaking, along with the many career opportunities and paths available in the world of broadcasting with the students.  
    “He used his real world experience producing documentaries screened at both the Sundance and Tribeca Film Festivals to offer advice for the students as they create their own documentaries on life in an American high school,” said teacher Stuart Stein.

    Newberger is currently touring the country promoting his most recent project Heading Home, the tale of team Israel at last year’s World Baseball Classic. The film will be in select theaters this summer.

    Mepham High School held its 10th annual So They Think They Can Dance competition on April 10.

    The event is modeled after the reality dance competition shows on television and is presented by the varsity kickline team each year. Eight teams were selected by teachers/coaches Kerry Dennis and Jackie Geller and were composed of athletes, musicians, artists and scholars from each grade. 

    The students competed to win the praise and scores of judges Principal Eric Gomez and Assistant Principals Dr. Jennifer Carne and Marie Netto. 

    The night was hosted by Mepham senior David Riobo and special education teacher and track coach Anthony Augugliaro, who was a competitor as a student in the very first competition in 2009. 

    The Bellmore-Merrick broadcasting students covered the evening’s dance numbers. Team Celine were the Jazz champions and overall winners.
    “The night continues to showcase Mepham spirit and pirate pride,” Dennis said.

    From mimeographs to the green screen, the way the Mepham High School student body gets its news is ever changing.
    To further advance the Bellmore-Merrick Broadcasting program, Frank Merklein Sr., a member of the Class of 1940, bequeathed $5,000.

    Longtime friends of Merklein, Jerry Worthing and Clare Worthing, also Mepham alumni, have been acting as ambassadors of his wishes and visited the program on March 27 for a tour.

    Merkelin worked in the television industry as a cameraman in the 1950s and was part of the “Howdy Doody” crew, as well the debut of The Today Show.

    Students interviewed the couple on their Mepham experiences, as well as the life of Merklein, for future use in news packages.

    “When we were students, we got our news from the school newspaper, The Buccaneer,” Jerry Worthing said. 

    While The Buccaneer is still produced today, the broadcasting program films and edits daily announcements as well as provides video services for various events throughout the district. 

    “As the program continues to mature, we are learning about more advanced technology that can be used in instruction,” said Mary Donnelly, a district English chairperson. “This gives us an opportunity to purchase some of that new technology.”

    Students in the upper elementary grades in the North Bellmore School District don’t have to look very far for positive role models. Throughout the year, their older peers from Mepham High School have been visiting classrooms through the Athletes Helping Athletes program.

    Mepham athletes recently paid their third and final visit of the year to fifth-grade classes at Park Avenue Elementary School. The program cultivated positive connections and showed elementary school students how to be successful when they reach high school. Topics included good sportsmanship and making positive life choices. 

    The high school students presented the youngsters with various scenarios to determine they best way to react if they were faced with a challenging situation. The athletes talked about the good decisions they made so they could achieve success both on the field and in the classroom.
