    The valedictorians and salutatorians from Calhoun, Mepham and Kennedy high schools were honored at a special breakfast hosted by the Nassau County Council of School Superintendents on June 1. 

    Calhoun valedictorian Joy Ma and salutatorian Amelia Seabold, Mepham valedictorian Gina Connors and salutatorian Isabelle Chan and valedictorian David Kantor and salutatorian Dylan Judd from Kennedy, were among those in attendance.

    “These students deserve to be praised for their hard work and consistent dedication to their education over the years,” said Superintendent John DeTommaso. “I would also like to extend a special thank you to their parents, families, teachers and classmates for their support and continued encouragement.”

    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.

    Deanna Buzzetta, a freshman at Mepham High School in the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District, fumbled with a child’s shape-sorting toy in the school parking lot on April 30. Normally, she wouldn’t have a problem but this time she was wearing goggles designed to simulate visual impairment.

    “My peripheral vision was impaired,” she noted. “It took me longer to get the pieces in the correct hole.” 

    During this exercise, which is part of the Arrive Alive Tour, students are educated about the dangers of impaired driving, as well as distracted driving.

    A driving simulator video game allows students to experience the potential consequences of drunk and distracted driving in a controlled environment.

    “The simulator allows students to experience the potential consequences of drunk and distracted driving in a controlled environment,” said Wendy Tepfer, director of the Community Parent Center, which was responsible for bringing this interactive program to the school.

    They were also offered simple stacking and sorting games to complete.
    “The students always come up and say right away, ‘oh this will be easy,’” said Tepfer. “After completing a sorting or stacking task, they are stunned by how difficult such a seemingly simple toy becomes nearly impossible to navigate while simulating intoxication or impairment.”

    The Seatbelt Convincer, operated by New York State Troopers, is an educational tool that allows riders to experience force, up to five times their body weight, similar to that of a 5-7mph crash.

    “It was scary to see the impact even though we were going so slow,” said freshman Kayla Menendez. 

    Mepham Team Wins Physics Bowl

    The Mepham High School Physics team recently competed against 18 Long Island schools in the Physics Olympics held at SUNY Farmingdale.

    The team, consisting of John Berry, Anil Bradley, Ailish Egan, Srikar Indrakanti and Michael Osorio and their coach William Leacock, won awards in two events. 

    “They received the third-place trophy in the Slow Roller event, where the team had to take measurements of two rolling objects that accelerated down an incline at different rates, and determine where they had to be initially placed so they would arrive together at a set point on the incline,” explained Leacock.

    They also won the first-place trophy in the Physics Bowl, a game show style event where teams compete based upon their physics knowledge.

    On April 13, students from Calhoun, Kennedy and Mepham High Schools participated in the annual poetry recitation contest hosted by the American Association of Teachers of Italian at SUNY Old Westbury.  

    “These select Bellmore-Merrick students chose classic Italian poems, memorized up to 30 lines and performed their interpretations in front of peers, teachers and professors,” explained World Languages Chairperson Enrique Montes. “The top students who demonstrated mastery of delivery, poise and pronunciation were awarded for their performances.”

    Calhoun sophomores Julia Manson and Luke Cimorelli earned second and third place, in the sophomore division, while Calhoun senior Ludovica Sophia Costanzo earned second place in the senior division.

    Jake Arlia, a Kennedy freshman, Gina Zazzi, a Calhoun junior, James Caracciolo, a Calhoun senior and Rebecca Scotto, a Mepham senior arrived to the final round with distinguished honorable mention. 

    Emily Turner and Sara Grossman of Calhoun, as well as Isabella Guimaraes, Izabella Donelson and Brigid Lamaze of Kennedy also proudly represented the Bellmore-Merrick School District.

    Additionally, Ailish Egan of Mepham High School was a winner of the 17th Annual Giovanna Morabito Memorial and American Association of Teachers of Italian Long Island’s chapter Scholarship for Excellence in Italian Studies. 

    “Ailish is one of only two winners of this very prestigious award, granted to outstanding graduating seniors currently enrolled in Italian,” said world languages chairperson Rosa Kaplan. 

    Egan will be presented with the award, which includes a $500 scholarship, at the AATI Dante Award and Scholarship luncheon on May 12.
