Jericho Students Say No To Bullying

The Jericho Middle School recently held their second annual Bully Prevention Kickoff. This year, they held an all-day Walkathon to log miles in demonstrating their commitment to prevent bullying. The kickoff was the brainchild of Joanne Verdino, school social worker, who is also an Olweus Bully Prevention Program trainer.

“The event succeeded beyond our expectations,” said Don Gately, Jericho Middle School principal. “Everyone had a tremendous amount of fun while at the same time learning the essentials of bully prevention.”

The day began with an assembly in which students watched a video of staff talking about their experiences with bullying and about times that they stood up to bullies. Throughout the day, students, staff and families walked around the track to show their sincere commitment to stand up to bullies; 4,267 miles were walked/run by the participants. As Jericho Superintendent Hank Grishman pointed out, this is nearly the amount of miles to travel from New York to San Francisco and back again.

Eight students from Jericho High School, the largest number of students from any school on Long Island this year, are among the 300 semifinalists picked from 1,800 entrants nationally and overseas in the annual Intel Science Talent Search.

Brookville’s Green Vale School students were featured in the September/October 2013 issue of Sport Rocketry, the official journal of the National Association of Rocketry.

The seventh-grade students competed nationally at the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) last May in Virginia and were the youngest rocket scientists competing. They were also the only team from Long Island that qualified to enter the competition and one of only two teams from New York State.


The Syosset Braves 11-year-old football team recently won the Superbowl Championship Game against the Rosedale Jets with a final score of 13 to 0.

Other locals winning awards in this year’s Ho Ho Ho Run were Gina Ferraro of Syosset (2nd woman, 35-39 age group), Patty Santella of Syosset (3rd woman, 45-49 age group), Kim Solomine of Syosset (2nd woman, 55-59 age group).
