This year, the Roslyn High School football team is having a banner season. But the Marching Bulldogs band is also in fine form, recently finishing first in their group at the US Bands Competition hosted by Manhasset High School.
The theme of this year’s show was the “Sound of Music” and was comprised of scores from that legendary musical production. The band performed with its usual high energy, one that was complimented by its dancers and color guard. The band’s components made for a spectacular performance as the Marching Bulldogs received their highest score of the year while on the way to the first place score.
Roslyn High School had a grand reopening of their school store on Sept. 16. The store is managed by Roslyn’s Distributive Education Club of America (DECA) students under the guidance of business teacher Sallykaye Kaufman.
DECA officers interviewed Life Skills and ESL students for positions in the store. Each prospective employee filled out an application and received a list of interview questions so they could prepare in advance. This enables the Life Skills students to interact more fully with the overall student body and helps the ESL students practice their English language skills in a workplace environment. It also provides the Life Skills class a chance to prepare for jobs in the community by offering an opportunity to engage in proper social interaction and solving job specific situations.
One hundred sixteen students at The Wheatley School have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program (AP) Exams.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school, and to receive college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the nearly 1.9 million high school students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.
The recent Emmy awards included a winner from Roslyn. Steven Passaro, a Roslyn High School graduate from the Class of 2006 took the coveted award for his role as an associate producer for MLB Tonight.
Passaro received a national sports Emmy as the program won the prize in the Outstanding Show – Daily category.
