Wheatley Students Travel To France

Eleven Wheatley School students experienced a recent vacation they will never forget. They traveled to Paris and the south of France accompanied by Wheatley teachers Jean François Henley and Laura Gurick.  The group spent three days touring the sites of Paris including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Louvre while practicing their language skills with the locals.

 

The students and teachers spent an afternoon at L’Atelier des Gâteaux where they had a private cooking lesson and learned to make almond sandwich cookies called macarons. They also visited The Palace of Versailles before traveling south to Provence and Nice where they experienced Carnaval complete with music, dance, floats and costumes and took advantage of the warm temperatures to swim in the Mediterranean.

 

They made a quick visit to the Exotic Gardens of Eze and Monaco before returning home. 

 

“There is nothing like being immersed in a completely different culture,” junior Sarah Golden said.

 

The students included Alexandra Boubour, Benjamin Goldbaum, Sarah Golden, Maria Hincapié of Mineola, Joseph Jacob, Amandeep Khokhar, Bonnie Lerman, Gabriella Schwartz, Chloe Tso, Chelsea Wolgel and Nancy Zhang.

The Mineola School Board will hold a public hearing on the much-debated New York State veterans exemption on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Willis Avenue School. It is expected the board will either approve or disapprove the tax exemption during its regular meeting at 7 p.m.

When votes go to the polls next week on Tuesday, Nov. 4 to vote on the Town of North Hempstead’s 2nd Council District seat, candidate Bonnie Parente feels her stance on the building department is what voters will remember when casting their choice. The 2nd council district post is currently held by Peter Zuckerman, a former East Hills trustee. He was appointed to the seat in January to replace Thomas Dwyer, who resigned last year.

 

“That’s the major issue I heard about when I knocked on doors,” she said. “No matter where I am, I could be at the Herricks Community Center or the Albertson Pasta Dinner and

predominately what people ask about is how to fix the building department.”


Sports

Samantha Pastore

Samantha Pastore, senior and third-year varsity player, is also co-captain of the currently undefeated (11-0) Mineola Girls Varsity Volleyball team. She is an outside hitter and is often recognized in games by starting rallies with her quick thinking and nimble feet. She earns 20 percent of the team’s points and averages four aces per match.

The Mineola Mustangs varsity football team fell to the Seaford Vikings last week 27-21, missing their chance to tie the top seeds Locust Valley and Roosevelt’s 6-1 Nassau conference IV record.

 

After tying the game in the second half and having the opportunity to capitalize on Seaford’s failed extra-point kick on their final touchdown, the Viking’s senior wide receiver/defensive back Bobby Buell knocked away a pass from Mineola senior quarterback James Gerstner to senior wide receiver Brian Smith in the end-zone with 57 seconds left
