Division Inducts 100 To Honor Society

 

Division Avenue High School in Levittown held its first Night of Honor in which 100 students were inducted into the art, business, math and world language honor societies. 

 

In her opening remarks, Assistant Principal Linda Dolecek welcomed students and their parents during this special celebration that recognizes the hard work and dedication, as well as the unending determination, displayed by each of the inductees in their respective disciplines.  

 

“At this Night of Honor, it is our honor to honor you,” Principal Joan Lorelli said. Hempstead Town Councilman Gary Hudes presented the inductees with a citation for their accomplishments. He cautioned the students that there would be speed bumps in life, but that they can rely on their parents for help. 

 

The advisers and presidents of each of the societies then called the names of the inductees, who then repeated a pledge, signifying their membership. In addition, Art Honor Society adviser Tim Ryan announced Olivia Kavanaugh as the recipient of the first Art Show Poster Presentation Award.

 

Alfred Esposito and Lyndsey Petrofsky also recited poetry in their chosen foreign languages.

 

Upon completion of the ceremony, the students, parents and staff were invited to attend a reception displaying student artwork.

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.”
