Notre Dame Parish kicked off Catholic Schools Week with a 9 a.m. family Mass where Pastor Father Slater gave a beautiful homily and school president Sophia Montini spoke of her experience at Notre Dame School for the past 10 years on Sunday, Jan. 25.
Notre Dame School held an open house after the Mass. Families were greeted by Principal Mrs. Durkin and administrative assistants Mrs. Breen and Mrs. Reagan as well as parent representatives. Seventh and eighth-grade students gave tours of the school. The hallways were filled with projects and artwork that demonstrates the knowledge and creativity of the Notre Dame students and teachers.

Last year Manhasset Park District Commissioner Mark Sauvigne was thinking about running for the office of Manhasset-Lakeville Fire & Water District Commissioner, but he sensed the timing wasn’t right. The district covers Manhasset and parts of Great Neck and north New Hyde Park. Commissioner terms are for three years.
“About a year ago I was approached by various members of the Manhasset Lakeville Fire Department, asking me if I would be interested in running for the office of the Fire/ Water
Commissioner,” said Sauvigne. “Although I was honored to be considered, I wasn’t sure the timing was right, so I put the decision off for a year. In the meantime, when the communication tower controversy occurred in October of 2013, I knew it was time to get involved.”

The students of Herricks High School were treated to a “Blast from the Past” as the Herricks High School Class of 1964 during this year’s Homecoming celebration. Approximately 60 members of the class of 1964 arrived at the high school on homecoming day for a tour of their alma mater. Most of these alumni had not been back to the high school since graduating 50 years ago.
All were impressed with the changes that have taken place and with the friendly demeanor of our high school students. One alumnus became teary eyed when he ventured out into the courtyard.

Despite a disappointing playoff loss against the Wantagh Warriors, Sewanhaka Indians Head Coach George Kasimatis, is pleased with his football team’s season.
“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”
The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against.
Kasimatis will have a tall task next year replacing graduating seniors, which made up most of his starting lineup. Kasimatis said most of the offensive line, such as Danny Gianotti, Adrian Gonzalez and Louis Segarra III, and the defensive line, such as Justin Alexandre, Peter LaTorre and Peter Militano are seniors, many of which have started multiple years for him.
