The North Shore High School senior class performed their senior play last month, The Boarding House Reach, a comical story about a boy named Lucas Maxwell, played by Warren Estler, who rents out the rooms of his home to strangers when his parents leave on a business trip so he can make money to buy a bike.
The Glen Cove Board of Education and Glen Cove High School administration honored 35 students who were named Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars for the 2013-14 school year. Certificates were awarded by GCHS Principal Roseann Cirnigliaro and Assistant
Principals Allen Hudson and Nadine Wheeler to those AP Scholars who were in attendance at the Jan. 13 board planning meeting. The ceremony is scheduled every January when many students who have already graduated return to Glen Cove during the semester break. Certificates will be mailed to AP honorees who could not be in attendance.
North Shore High School students Kevin Henneberger and Nick Green were recently honored for designing a historic World Trade Center Memorial on the North Shore High School campus for everyone in the community to visit for many years to come. Their winning design was chosen from numerous student drawings by Principal Albert Cousins along with many administrators and faculty at the high school.
Last year, Henneberger and Green were ninth-graders in Laura Green’s design and drawing for production class when they utilized interdisciplinary skills including art, traditional and digital design, math, architectural drawing, and public speaking to design the winning base for an artifact from the World Trade Center. The students also had to create a landscape design of the memorial site by measuring the dimensions of the entire location behind the high school.
Emma Haley, a soprano from North Shore High School, was recognized by the All-State Music Association. Haley was invited to perform in the mixed choir at the All-State Music Festival at the annual New York State Music Educators Association (NYSSMA) Convention in Rochester. Student selection for the All-State music ensembles is based on their previous year’s All-State audition score (100 percent) plus the adjudicator’s recommendation. These talented young men and women are usually
the finest and most committed student musicians from around the state.
In addition, Mac Ayers was also chosen to perform in the mixed choir at the All-State Music Festival but did not attend due to illness.
Local kids learned what happens to the brain when it is attacked by drug and alcohol abuse at a recent presentation at Robert M. Finley Middle School. The school committee of SAFE’s PRIDE Coalition sponsored a visit by Dr. Stephen Dewey, a neurologist and neuroscientist, on Friday, Jan. 10, who spoke to a packed assembly of sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders on “The Teen Brain: Still Under Construction,” which delved into how alcohol and drug use affects the developing adolescent and adult brain. The information he shared appeared to stun the middle school students who were, for the most part, silent for most of the assembly and totally engaged in the presentation.
