Plainedge High School recently held an awards ceremony to honor the academic, artistic and athletic achievements of its students in grades nine through 11.
“Tonight we honor the athletes and scholars who will lead Plainedge for the next few years,” Principal Robert Amster said in his opening speech. “Many students deserve awards and accolades, but all of you [here tonight] have demonstrated a high level of commitment and dedication for an extended period of time.”
Following the introduction and welcome address, the Plainedge High School Jazz Choir performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” and the distribution of awards began. Awards were presented to students in the areas of art, career and technology education, English, foreign language, health, mathematics, music, physical education, science, social studies, and athletics.
