Floral Park Memorial PTSA Scholarship
The end of May was celebrated at Our Lady of Victory School with fun and games. Spirit day was kicked off with the school talent show, and what talent there was. Dancers, singers, piano players, and comics-even a pogo stick jumper and singing hula-hooper entertained the school. Then it was out to the school yard to enjoy music, play some bingo and perform the choreographed school dance to “Happy.” The students wore the tie dyed t-shirts shirts they made in art class the previous week. Topping off the week was Field Day. Competition was on as “go blue team” and “go white team” was chanted throughout the day. There were scooter board races, Nukem, basketball and even a game of whiffle ball. In the end the blue team was victorious.
The Sewanhaka Central High School District Cosmetology Program recently competed at the Huntington Hilton Hotel, in Melville. Students from both the senior and junior program entered in the Long Island Teachers Guild Competition in the areas of senior styling, junior styling, hair color, mannequin styling and fantasy hair.
There were more than 200 student entries competing that evening in the presence of salon owners, parents, family members and school administrators. The Sewanhaka students excelled in four of the five categories capturing 10 awards in total.
Students at Sewanhaka High School were recently asked to bring in a variety of items for deployed and returning members of the military. All donations were collected through Social Studies classes and then given to the American Legion Post 1033. Students were asked to bring in toothbrushes, lip balm, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, gum, candy, nutrition bars, snacks, canned goods, pasta, and more. Sewanhaka thanks all students who donated for this great cause.
The Sewanhaka District Band traveled to Walt Disney World to perform in the recent Parade on Main Street. The students in the district band also participated in a clinic with a Disney conductor, and performed a movie score along with a scene from The Lion King. The trip was chaperoned by Christopher Doherty and Mrs. Rachel Daloia.
