Financial Literacy Day

High School And

Middle School

Students Participate 

Plainview-Old Bethpage fifth graders learned about economic basics from their high school peers. Thirty-six Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School juniors and seniors recently participated in the District’s 4th annual Financial Literacy Day. The student-volunteers served as mentors to fifth grade students from Mattlin Middle School and Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School, and educated them on budgeting basics, money saving tips and young entrepreneur skills. The day was coordinated by DECA student club members Derek Ash, Zachary Pokorny and Adam Stern.

News

The Plainview-Old Bethpage JFK High School business teams placed second and third in the Nassau County’s annual Comptroller’s Entrepreneurial Challenge. They competed against two hundred business students from high schools across Nassau County for scholarships and cash awards from various sponsors.  

On April 9, at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building, student teams had 10 minutes to convince a panel of expert judges that their plan for a business in the Plaza of the new Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum is feasible and would be successful.

It’s not every day that you read about a chocolate brown mare being spared from a harsh reality. While it’s the dogs and cats we read about most in animal rescue stories, Plainview native and animal lover Andria McMaugh, shines light on the endangered horses of Long Island, and what is being done to help them.

McMaugh strapped on her riding boots at 10 years old. When she entered George Washington University as a freshman, McMaugh became a member of the school’s Equestrian team.
