Dalers Perform In All-County Festival

Students from all over Nassau County were selected to perform at this year’s All-County Music Festival, which took place throughout the month of January, at the Tilles Center in Brookville.  This year a record number of Farmingdale students were chosen in different categories, including band, orchestra, chorus, and jazz band. In total 103 Dalers were honored.

In division II, Devika Arora and Kelly Bergersen performed as vocal soloists; and in the jazz band category, Miles Malanowski played lead trumpet, Cooper Malanowski played lead trombone, and Connor Fawcett played guitar. All three  also performed solo.

Fernandez were vocal soloists, Greg DeAngelis was lead trombone, and Matthew Malanowski played piano. Both DeAngelis and Malanowski  also performed solo.

Sam Gelfer, Barbara Lieberman, Jonathan Bley, Gina Pellettiere, Jessica Mischke, Andy Segale, Matthew Szabo, Danielle Tucker and Claire Zatorski; and Elementary teachers Joe DeAngelis, Matthew DeMasi, Joan Drewes, Katie Duke, Pat Facchiano, Erika Felker, Erica Hartmann, Becky Korn, Jennifer Tower and Therese Mannino.

At a recent meeting of the Farmingdale Board of Education, school district superintendent John Lorentz discussed New York State’s proposal to invest $2 billion into districts statewide

through the Smart Schools Bond Act.

 

If approved by voters in the upcoming general elections, the act would allow the state to borrow $2 billion in the form of a capital bond to provide students with access to classroom

technology and high-speed internet connectivity, with the goal of equalizing opportunities for children to learn, adding classroom space, expanding pre-kindergarten programs, replacing classroom trailers with permanent instructional space and installing high-tech security features in schools. 

Over the weekend, thousands of Long Island residents flocked to the Village of Farmingdale for its 26th annual Columbus Day Weekend Fair and Fireman’s carnival. Running from Oct. 9

The 2014 Reilly Cup finals featured the two most successful OTHG teams over the last 9 years. Sal’s Place and Singleton’s have had 11 finals appearances and 7 championships between them during this period of time. They split 2 games during the regular season and Singleton’s became the winner’s bracket representative in the 2014 Cup by beating Sal’s deep in the tournament.

 

Sal’s took the first game 14-7. The game was close until the 8th inning when Sal’s broke it open with some timely hits and taking advantage of a Singleton’s miscue or two.  Sal’s held

Singleton’s to 7 runs with outstanding all-around defense, which was particularly impressive given that some of their significant contributors were visibly fighting through late-season injuries.
