The word champion really sums up the students who were honored at a special “Breakfast for Champions” recently held at Garden City High School. The 13 students were selected from a large number of nominations by teachers in the various departments. Each department then chose only one student to be its “Champion”—a student who modeled citizenship and embodied dedication to the content area. These “Champions” were honored with heart-warming testimonials by their nominating teachers at the breakfast, accepting certificates in front of their parents, and teachers and administrators.
Congratulations to: Dana Aprigliano (Business), Dominick Avitable (Health), Brittany Costa (Music), Quinn Helling (Special Education), Vitaliy Ivasyuk (ESL, World Languages), Drew Mancusi (Art), Ryan McCartney (Guidance), Cullen Minion (World Languages), Gabriella Montanaro (Physical Education), James Murphy (Social Studies), Sabrina Singh (Science), Lauren Slovensky (English) and Thomas Wright (Math).

The Village of Garden City is currently hosting a pilot internship program this summer for four Adelphi University students. The eight-to-10-week test run is also the first time the school has partnered with a municipality, according to its Center for Career Services.
Planning started in May when Mayor John Watras approached Village Administrator Ralph Suozzi about the possibility of hiring interns during July and August. Suozzi, who said he had student interns at his last job, said the program helps provide college students with experience in exchange for a new perspective for village officials.

Ozzie is a playful pup looking for a new friend to match his exuberance. He has begun basic obedience training at the shelter and so far has proven to be an “A” student. Ozzie is friendly and gets along well with other dogs. He needs an experienced companion dedicated to continuing his training.

Did you know that each of our neighbor hood parks runs a playground program every summer? Children entering 1st through 8th grades who are residents of the Village are invited to come to the park during the summer to find out what activities are taking place.
Each park has its own “flavor” and “favorite” activities. The park directors and their staff run games, sports, tournaments, and arts and crafts activities during the day and into the evening. Trips are also run through the parks.
