Top Students Attend Blue And Silver Luncheon

In line with a longstanding school tradition, Division Avenue High School’s top 22 achieving seniors of the Class of 2014 were invited to attend the annual Blue and Silver Luncheon. Also in attendance were Superintendent of Schools James J. Grossane, members of the district’s administration and Board of Education, and school counselors.    

 

Prior to a delicious catered meal, the students were asked to introduce themselves, state their choice of college and potential major, describe their most memorable high school moment, and explain what they will miss most about Division Avenue High School.

Many of the guests of honor will pursue careers in the sciences and engineering. 

 

In her opening remarks, Principal Joan Lorelli congratulated the students on their achievements and asked them to think about their definition of a leader. She encouraged the seniors, in order to become adult leaders, to be problem-solvers, kind, compassionate and confident, to continue to speak out against what is wrong, and to have a sense of humor. “I believe you will continue to be high achievers, great students and future leaders,” she said.

Firehouse Subs announces the grand opening of its first Long Island location in Levittown on Oct. 17. The award-winning fast casual restaurant chain is famous for serving premium meats and cheeses steamed piping hot and piled high on a toasted sub roll, which is served “Fully Involved” with fresh produce and condiments. Founded by former firefighting brothers, the restaurant’s firehouse décor is based on the founding family’s decades of fire and police service, and the new location is decorated with firefighter memorabilia from the Levittown Fire Department.

Despite the national media attention about Ebola in recent weeks, there is one virus that is actually affecting Long Islanders, Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), with one of the first cases identified in North Hempstead on Sept. 18 and a recent case on Oct. 15 in Suffolk County, which school officials called for the closing of school, as a health precaution. 

 

The Levittown School District has been vigilant with the increase of cases in general. “We are continuing to implement the precautions provided by the health department and the CDC,” said Levittown School District Assistant Superintendent for Administration and Personnel Darlene Rhatigan. “We are also reminding students and staff to be mindful of the importance of proper hygiene including frequent hand washing.”
