North Shore High School students Kevin Henneberger and Nick Green were recently honored for designing a historic World Trade Center Memorial on the North Shore High School campus for everyone in the community to visit for many years to come. Their winning design was chosen from numerous student drawings by Principal Albert Cousins along with many administrators and faculty at the high school. 

Background                                                                                                                                 

Last year, Henneberger and Green were ninth-graders in Laura Green’s design and drawing for production class when they utilized interdisciplinary skills including art, traditional and digital design, math, architectural drawing, and public speaking to design the winning base for an artifact from the World Trade Center. The students also had to create a landscape design of the memorial site by measuring the dimensions of the entire location behind the high school.

Emma Haley, a soprano from North Shore High School, was recognized by the All-State Music Association. Haley was invited to perform in the mixed choir at the All-State Music Festival at the annual New York State Music Educators Association (NYSSMA) Convention in Rochester. Student selection for the All-State music ensembles is based on their previous year’s All-State audition score (100 percent) plus the adjudicator’s recommendation. These talented young men and women are usually 

the finest and most committed student musicians from around the state.

 

In addition, Mac Ayers was also chosen to perform in the mixed choir at the All-State Music Festival but did not attend due to illness. 

   

Finley Kids Get Straight Talk On Dope

Written by Submitted by SAFE, Inc. Thursday, 23 January 2014 00:00

Local kids learned what happens to the brain when it is attacked by drug and alcohol abuse at a recent presentation at Robert M. Finley Middle School.  The school committee of SAFE’s PRIDE Coalition sponsored a visit by Dr. Stephen Dewey, a neurologist and neuroscientist, on Friday, Jan. 10, who spoke to a packed assembly of sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders on “The Teen Brain: Still Under Construction,” which delved into how alcohol and drug use affects the developing adolescent and adult brain. The information he shared appeared to stun the middle school students who were, for the most part, silent for most of the assembly and totally engaged in the presentation.

 

Scholastic Recognizes Connolly Writer

Thursday, 23 January 2014 00:00

Glen Cove Connolly Elementary School fifth-grader Lily Knobel is the winner of a national writing contest, sponsored by Scholastic Storyworks magazine. Lily and other students in Frank Monteleone’s class read an article based on a play entitled “Duckling” published in the Scholastic magazine. In the story, characters treated the ‘Ugly Duckling’ cruelly and Lily and her classmates were asked to write an explanation of how the Ugly Duckling learns to accept himself.  

 

In her congratulatory letter to Lily, Assistant Editor Lauren Maganizer thanked Lily for her “thoughtful piece” and praised her on her use of evidence from the play to support her idea. For her award-winning entry, Lily received a copy of Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper, a book about an 11-year-old girl with a photographic memory who is unable to walk, talk or write.

 

This is the second time in three years that one of Monteleone’s students has won this national award.
