Two Buckley Country Day School 2013 graduates, Angelique Simeone and Nefes Pirzada, age 14, co-authored and published a book entitled “Young Equestrian: Something in Common.” The book is now a success, with the help of Mrs. Barbara Thomas, their English teacher in fifth and sixth grade, as well as their fifth-grade advisor. Thomas also serves as the “Odyssey of the Mind” advisor, and coordinator of Buddy Program.
The horse lovers have been best friends since 3rd grade. This book was born out of a creative writing assignment given by Thomas in the fifth grade.
Each girl wrote a separate story about a young female protagonist and her love for horses. After the assignment, they both continued writing independently until they got together and realized the stories combined would create a great book.

Students from the Harbor Hill School in Roslyn were among the nearly 150,000 students worldwide to participate this year in the Math Olympiad program. They participated in five monthly contests of five problems each, from November to March, and weekly practice sessions under the supervision of Harbor Hill Computer teacher, Amy Braunstein. She taught the children to solve unusual and difficult problems and to think creatively. The students responded well and were all recognized for their participation. Fourteen of the mathletes won national awards for excellence within the Elementary Division for grades 4-6. The embroidered felt patch is awarded to those in the top 50 percent of all the participants, including the following students: Sarah Kim, Catherine Tom, Lindsey Russ, Truman Chong, Harris Miller, Joshua Kim, Jack Klafter, Justin Mashaal, Sammy Ben-Levi, Justin Kalman and Luke Weiss.
