Extraordinary Island Trees Artists Exhibit Work at Adelphi

The exhibition began with the prestigious Senior Scholarship Recipients Ceremony honoring one senior artist from each Nassau County high school. Island Trees High School senior Joanna Viscuso, who plans to attending Adelphi University next year to study art and compete for their Division I Bowling team, was recognized for her artistic excellence. 

 

The Island Trees School District was represented by several art students and educators, including: 

 

The students recognized in this spectacular exhibit possess remarkable talents, as do their teachers, who provide an outlet for their students’ creative imaginations and contribute to their cognitive, physical, academic, and social development. According to the

National Art Education Association, art helps children expand their critical thinking skills, imagination, dexterity, and mathematical minds.

 

For those who have never had the opportunity to attend this impressive show, be sure to come next year to enjoy the impressive work our students and teachers do in our art classrooms every day.

News

The smell of pine, wood and scented candles greet customers with a sense of home as they cross the wooden threshold to the Amish Craft Barn in Seaford. There they will find dolls, birdhouses, quilts, ceramic turkeys, hand-painted Christmas trees, oak furniture and other seasonal and holiday tchotchkes.

 

Massapequa natives Frank and Pam Hoerauf started The Amish Craft Barn & Gift Shoppe 20 years ago after an inspiring visit to Pennsylvania.

Holidays increase daily congestion 

While parking around LIRR train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town. 

 

“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”


Sports

The Island Trees Cross Country teams continue their improvement in 2014. This year the girls’ team has a record of 8-2 and with their victories over Clarke and Wheatley High Schools, they clinched the Division Championship for the first time in Island Trees High School history.

 

The girls are led by senior Captain Angela Brocco who has been rewriting the girl’s record boards. Brocco set the school record for the Warwick Valley 5000 meter course on Sept. 20. 

This season the Girls’ Varsity Soccer Team at Division Avenue has the rare ability to fill every position on the field with a member of the senior class. All 11 seniors have made contributions to the success of this year’s squad.
