Welcome to another academic year and the expectations, activities and commitments of students and parents to a successful, rewarding school year.
The Carle Place Athletic Booster and Physical Education Foundation Club (CPABC) seek to encourage involvement and support of our students in the middles school and high school athletic programs. Our efforts to support the athletic programs are dependent on membership contributions and fundraising efforts. The funds raised through your membership contributions ($20 family, $50 masters or $100 platinum level) enable the CPABC to donate and fund needed equipment, scholarships, tournament sponsorships, to assist teams that have successfully advanced to statewide competition. Over the last nine years, through your generous efforts, the CPABC has donated in excess of $10,000 to the Carle Place athletic program.
The CPABC provides recognition and support of the efforts of our coaching staff and athletes. Last year we presented 66 of our graduating seniors that participated in a varsity sport a memento for their efforts. The CPABC also awarded three scholarships to three graduating senior athletes totaling $2,500. Additionally, financial assistance of more $1,000 for camp scholarships was awarded to student athletes for camp participation.
Each school year requires new enrollment and this year we are also seeking volunteers to join the board and assist in various committees. Please be sure to visit our website at cpathleticbooster.org regarding events, fundraising activities and schedules of games.
Please remit your completed membership form along with your check (payable to CPABC) in an envelope and mail to Chris Ceruti, Carle Place High School Athletic Department, 168 Cherry Lane, Carle Place, N.Y. 11514.

Everyone wants to know that their neighborhood is safe. But an omnipresent police force is impossible and extensive home security can be expensive. So the watchful eye of a neighbor can come in handy.
Now in its second year, the Westbury Neighborhood Watch is a small group of residents who stick to the phrase “see something, say something.” Director Jacquelyn McCullough says that the group, comprised mostly of seniors, keeps an eye out for suspicious behavior and looks out for their neighbors. She encourages them to report any odd behavior to her, so she can relay it to the appropriate authorities.

Deidree Golbourne has been running track and field all four years she has been at Westbury High School. Her passion for the sport comes from knowing that “you can put your all into it. It’s not a team sport where you have to depend on other people. You get out as much as you put into it.”
Golbourne is also seeded fourth in the state for discus throwing. She says that when she initially picked up discus her freshman year, she wasn’t a fan.
