POB CSD Congratulates National Merit Semifinalists

The Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District has announced that four John F. Kennedy High School (POBJFK) students have been named National Merit Semi-Finalists for the 2012-2013 school year.

POBJFK students Sunny Zheng, Robert Adelson, Amelia Ricketts and Adrian Kim were recognized as National Merit Semi-Finalists for their outstanding performance on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying (PSAT/NMSQT) Exam. In order to earn this esteemed title, these four students had to score in the top third of 50,000 students nationwide who qualified for recognition in the National Merit Scholarship program.

These academically talented high school seniors will now have the opportunity to continue in the competition for over 8,300 National Merit Scholarships that will be offered in the spring. National Merit Scholarship winners will be announced beginning in April 2013 and concluding in July 2013.

Founded in 1995 by owner Bruce Grossman, the Cultural Arts Playhouse of Plainview is a year round, regional, off-off Broadway-style theater that has produced over 500 productions including educational and touring shows. It is also located in Roslyn Heights and Wantagh.

Named as one of Long Island’s Best Live Theaters, the theater serves more than 20,000 people each year with its professional adult productions, children’s theater performances, and theater education classes for ages 7-18. Artistic Director Tony Frangipane took time out of his busy schedule to talk theater.

There’s no question that Halloween is a holiday for the kids. But what about the kids that can’t enjoy it normally because they have severe allergies? That’s when “The Teal Pumpkin Project” steps in to help.

“The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all,” said Plainview resident Heather Alberti, whose five year old son, Nathan, has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts.
