Gardiners Avenue Students Go to the Movies
Students in grades three through five from Gardiners Avenue Elementary School put on a performance in mid-April at Salk Middle School in an effort to help a local family, whose lives were affected by the events of Sept. 11. Members of the Merkouris family, whose children attend Levittown's school, lost their father, George Merkouris, who was also a brother of one of the teachers in the district, as a result of the events of Sept. 11. Last October, two educators from Gardiners Avenue, Watson Miller and Jennifer Mann, were searching for a way to help both the Merkouris family and all children in the district deal with the tragedy. They decided to put on a performance entitled "Let's Go to the Movies," which both gave the students something to focus on and raised money to help the family.

Wisdom Lane Middle School
The Wisdom Lane 8th Grade Girls' Basketball Team just completed what many may say was the most dominant season in recent history. The girls from Wisdom Lane would post a 10 and 0 season but it was the way they went about it that separates them from other teams. The Wildcats would beat their opponents by a remarkable average of 42 points per game! They also held their opponents to just 21 points per game.
