Class Reunion Of Class Of 1965

The graduating class of Holy Ghost School, 1965, is sponsoring a reunion for all Holy Ghost/Holy Spirit students Saturday, October 27 at 6 p.m. at Umberto’s Restaurant and Pizzeria. Many a story of struggling families sending large numbers of children through parochial school will be remembered. Amazingly, most of the classes numbered 60 or more students with only one teacher, usually a nun. The class of ’65 has the distinction of being the last class to be so named before the change was made to Holy Spirit. These blue and white uniformed baby boomers started first grade in what was then a rickety older wooden building in disrepair, with the classrooms separated by army surplus parachutes hanging as dividers. To make room for the new school, the Catholic Church built in 1892 for Polish immigrants was moved from the northeast corner on Jericho Turnpike at S. 6th Street, directly west toward the rectory, and then sadly, later demolished. Tickets can be purchased through Paypal on the Facebook webpage “Holy Ghost New Hyde Park.” Additional activities may be planned. Email Ed Knapp at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information. Seating is limited. Renowned guitarist Terry Brady will provide music.

News

Running for his second major office in as many years, Adam Haber touched on familiar themes in a visit to Anton Media Group to discuss his candidacy for the Seventh District New York State Senate seat, where Haber is challenging the Republican incumbent, Jack Martins.

 

Haber entered politics in 2009, when he ran for and won, a seat on the Roslyn School Board. The district was then reeling from an embezzlement scandal that had cost it millions of dollars. Haber touted his achievements on the board, including bringing finances into line to the point where the district has seen the lowest tax increases of any district in Nassau County. Last year, Haber ran for the Democratic Party’s nomination to challenge Edward P. Mangano for the Nassau County executive’s race. 

After a recent security scare, the New Hyde Park-Garden City Park School District is leading a push to get public election polling moved out of school buildings. The board of education is aiming to pass its resolution at the state level to encompass all New York Schools and address what they see as a broad school security flaw. 

 

“What’s good for our kids should be good for any child in any other public school in the entire state,” Superintendent Robert Katulak said.

The Sewanhaka Indians varsity football team hosted Elmont Spartans on Saturday, Oct. 18 in its final home game of the regular season. 

 

It certainly did not go as the Indians had hoped, falling 18-8, in a mistake filled game. Head coach George Kasimatis said the Indians had their chances, but kept digging themselves into a hole with mental mistakes on both sides of the ball. 

 

Playing from behind, senior running back Brenton Mighty was able to break free for a long touchdown run, to put the Indians on the board.
