Holy Trinity Students Are Mad For Math

Did you know that math plays a vital role in video games? What do you know about the Fibonacci Numbers? What is the origin of Pi? What does music have to do with math? These were just some questions answered by over 30 exhibits on display during the afternoon Math Madness event held in Holy Trinity High School’s library on March 12.

Students in the 7th grade from Holy Family Elementary School in Hicksville, St. Brigid/Our Lady of Hope School in Westbury and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Bellmore, were invited to take a trip to Holy Trinity during their school day to learn many unique and interesting math facts from high school students. After school, the students at Holy Trinity were able to see what their fellow classmates have been up to.

Hicksville improv sketch comedy group, Unrehearsed, will be performing this weekend at Crossroads Farm in Malverne.

The group, which consists of performers from Hicksville, will put on a fast-paced, interactive improv sketch show which will be made up completely on the spot. The only thing the actors know is which improv game they will be playing.

An Unrehearsed show follows a format similar to popular improv sketch comedy television shows, such as "Whose Line Is It Anyway," using games to create hilarious situations that are completely made up on the spot.

Superintendent Maureen Bright and the Hicksville School District are parting ways, a year earlier than originally planned.

At a Board of Education meeting May 20, Bright announced that she would not be renewing her contract when it expired at the end of the 2014-15 school year. However, a notice posted last week on the Hicksville School District website stated that she is leaving her position July 31, 2014.
