Fifteen students in grades 6-8 at Robert M. Finley Middle School in Glen Cove competed in last month’s Nassau County Science Olympiad, held at Port Washington’s Weber Middle School. The Finley students competed in 11 separate events ranging from science crime busters to the weight-bearing Boomilever. The team of Ryan Telese and Joseph Yee won the bronze medal in the wheeled vehicle event, and Amanda Ieraci and Monika Jagustyn combined to place sixth in the Boomilever competition.
Students worked for two months after school in preparation for this Olympic–style marathon day of science that welcomed close to 50 teams from throughout Nassau. Finley Middle School Science Olympiad adviser and science teacher Jeff Eisele would like to congratulate all of the school’s participants on a job well done.
Glen Cove High School senior Danny Casale won his second consecutive Best in Show award at the Long Island Media Art Show, held at Five Towns College in March. The Long Island Media Art Show featured students from approximately 20 high school television and film production programs across Long Island.
Deasy Elementary School in Glen Cove held its annual spring concert, which carried a special theme this year. Vocalists in grades kindergarten through second presented “The River of Dreams: A Billy Joel Tribute Concert” held under the direction of Rosita Mallo in conjunction with the school’s visual arts department, led by Jean Bennardo.
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.”
