As promised, Riley Keenan, an eighth-grader at North Shore Middle School, shaved his head on Monday, March 17. After raising more than $4,000 in only two weeks for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research, Riley, along with his father Dave Keenan (a teacher at North Shore) Mr. Curtin, Mr. Leif, Mr. Lang, and Mr. Wilgoos took to the stage in the middle school cafeteria in front of numerous cheering students and teachers. It was evident that Riley’s original quest might have started out as something small, but clearly grew into a much bigger event.
North Shore Middle School students in Maryalice Kelly’s eighth grade “Disease” class recently conducted a lab using the Kirby-Bauer method to determine which antibiotic is most effective on E. coli and B. cereus bacteria.
Kelly said, “This technique is used in hospitals and medical labs to help doctors prescribe the most effective antibiotic to their patients with bacterial infections.” She added, “The antibiotics that we examined were: Gentamicin, Penicillin, Streptomycin and Ampicillin.”
For the fourth year in a row the work of Melissa Johnides’ photography students will be on display at the Calumet Gallery in New York City as part of the Professional Women Photographer’s Annual Student Photography Exhibit. Glen Cove High School seniors Dakota Herman and Elsie Goodman have submitted work for the “Self-Portraits” themed show, which was open to the entire New York metropolitan area.
As one of North Shore High School’s newest extracurricular clubs, the Fashion Club is gaining popularity among the seamstresses, designers, and trendsetters alike in the creative student body. The club is run almost entirely by students and assisted by F.A.C.S. teacher Mrs. Paolilli-Schiano.
Members of the club participate in the following important activities: learning to draw croquis, which are elongated fashion models; making DIY projects; assessing career options; and discussing important events going on in the fashion world. There are no prerequisites needed to join, and anyone from an aspiring designer to someone just wanting to have fun and try something new is welcome.
