Alain Sherman, a senior at Roslyn High School, has been named as a 2013 U.S. Presidential Scholar.
He is one of 141 American high school seniors who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, artistic excellence, leadership, citizenship, service, and contribution to school and community. The U.S. Presidential Scholars will be honored for their accomplishments in Washington, D.C. from June 15-18.
The vote on the budget for the 2013-2014 school year will take place on Tuesday, May 21 from 7:00am to 9:00pm in the Roslyn High School. The following will be on the ballot:
• The Roslyn School District’s proposed budget for the 2013-14 school year of $102,065,212. The budget-to-budget increase is 2.63 percent, and the projected tax levy increase is 2.11 percent.
If you are regular user of the Roslyn High School track, you will have noticed that construction fences have been put up near the entrance to the track and the turf field. These fences are there to create a secure area as a major reconstruction project on the field house will begin shortly. The track and field will remain open throughout the construction period, though for reasons of safety there will be no access through the parking area on the north side of the field house structure. Use the main gateway to reach the track and field.
The new field house is slated to be ready for use by the start of the fall 2013 athletic season. This reconstruction project is a private-public partnership, underwritten by a combination of New York State grant funds, private donations through the Roslyn Bulldog Booster Club, and capital funds of the Roslyn Public Schools.
Roslyn High School Senior Melissa Goldstein has written a musical adaptation of Sherwood Anderson’s novel Winesburg, Ohio. What began as four songs written for a class project on the novel, “Winesburg” has blossomed into an hour-long musical. Melissa has written the music, lyrics and script, and has enlisted the talents of RCP to bring Anderson’s classic novel about life in a small American town to the stage.
A delayed opening proved helpful when Wheatley staff participated in workshops about the college admissions process with admissions representatives from Harvard, Yale and Binghamton. Staff was provided with insight into the newest trends in the college admissions process as well as the key role teacher recommendations can play.
