“My family was very distressed to learn that as part of the passed budget the fourth-grade music program for the elementary schools were scrapped,” said concerned Manhasset resident Lisa Zornberg, mother of 7th grader Aden Horowitz. “Our distress further grew when we learned that the jazz band had been cut and the chamber choir had been cut.”
Teaching eight classes a day is hard work, but for Sean Quinn it was a labor of love. “Not one morning did I ever get out of bed, put my feet on the floor and not want to go to work,” he says.
Quinn, who for the past 28 years taught music in Manhasset schools, led the students in the elementary school orchestra and fourth-grade string ensembles, and created a variety of other musical groups for the school district, at both Munsey Elementary and Shelter Rock Road.
June 12, 2013 was a beautiful day that befitted the festive mood of the Buckley Country Day School graduates, their families and friends who gathered to celebrate the graduation of the Class of 2013.
Reverend Joseph R. Gibino gave the invocation and offered his blessings to the class of 2013. President of the Board of Trustees Valerie DiFebo presented this year’s Trustee Bowl to the student who achieved the highest grade point average, Lorenzo Manuali. The Scholarship Medal for the second highest academic average was awarded to Brooke Juhel. Theodora Christopher earned Honorable Mention for the third highest average.
Incoming Manhasset School Community Association (SCA) President Renee Press hopes to continue building what was put in place by her predecessor, Christy Weppler.
Press has been involved with the SCA for 13 years through her children, who went through Manhasset public schools. When she was offered the position as executive president she readily accepted. Press firmly believes that the SCA provides great things for the kids and is a great way to get the community together and involved.
What’s hot this summer? Manhasset’s Summer Center! For the past 32 years, the program has been a great success. For four weeks, Manhasset students, pre-kindergarten through sixth grade, enjoy exciting classes and a multitude of fun activities. The program is run by SCOPE Education under the guidance of Elaine Schaeffer.
Summer Center runs from July 1 through 26 at Munsey Park Elementary School. Over 200 students enroll in this summer program. The classes are separated into primary and intermediate classes. The primary classes are students entering kindergarten through second grade. Class size is comprised of twenty children with one New York State licensed teacher and an assistant. Primary classes participate in arts and crafts, indoor games, fitness activities, and story-time. For a special treat the children interacted with a number of different animals that visited from Alley Pond Environmental Center.
