The Manhasset High School Theatre Department has reached out to the Scholars’ Academy in Rockaway Beach, Queens to help with their upcoming performance of Into The Woods as it was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. The auditorium was flooded with nearly five feet of water, and the drama department lost all of its stored costumes and props.
The Manhasset Youth Council, an agency of the Manhasset Community Fund, has organized seven exciting day-trips and an overnight trip to Hershey Park as part of its Summer S.H.O.P. program. Anthony Blyskal, S.H.O.P. director, has announced a schedule that starts on Tuesday, June 25 and ends on Tuesday, July 23. All trips are via air-conditioned, video equipped coach buses. The trips are as follows:
Matilda the Musical (Broadway) – Tuesday, June 25 - $150
Monster Boat Thrill Ride/ Grimaldi’s Pizza/ Brooklyn Bridge and more. – Thursday, June 27 - $95
Manhasset’s Boys and Girls Crew Teams recently pitched in with some “spring cleaning” along the Town of North Hempstead Beach shoreline.
Under the direction of Town Supervisor Jon Kaiman and his administration, the team’s athletes not only picked up trash and debris, but also helped to restore the beach to a healthy ecological state by raking up the excessive amount of sea grass piled up due to Superstorm Sandy. If left untouched, this thick layer of grass would hinder the growth of the native plants that benefit the shoreline marshes and wetlands.
It’s a fantastic supplement to the school’s science curriculum. Sixteen students from Saint Mary’s Elementary School’s Science Olympiad Team competed in the annual regional Science Olympiad competition held on March 16 at Kellenberg Memorial High School. In total, 42 schools competed, three of which were Catholic elementary schools. St. Mary’s placed fifth of 42 teams and will compete on the State level on April 12 at Syracuse University.
The Science Olympiad is a national organization whose goals include bringing science to life and emphasizing the problem-solving aspects of science and the understanding of scientific concepts. It strives to create a technologically literate workforce and provides recognition for outstanding achievement by both students and teachers.
Superstorm Sandy and the Blizzard of 2013 were no match for the spirit of Shelter Rock and Munsey Park students, and the dedication of scores of parent volunteers.
On Thursday, Feb. 28, Shelter Rock became a winter wonderland and Munsey Park, a Mardi Gras celebration, as the schools’ original Halloween parties--postponed by two weather delays--went off without a hitch. Not only did the students have a great time at these hugely successful parties, but a portion of the original budget was donated to the Superstorm Sandy/Project Share Fund, which is providing assistance to those from the Manhasset community directly impacted by the unprecedented storm.
The SCA thanks the students for their patience, understanding and generous support, and the parents for their time, energy and collective efforts. The smiles said it all.
