Dr. Annie Michaelian will be one of three honorees at the SHEF Gala Event in the spring of 2019.

Taken from our weekly Superintendent Newsletter, Personnel Administrator Frank Fallon has the Spotlight on Dr. Annie Michaelian. “We can all agree that educators are special people. Their life’s work is to support the growth and development of young people. Their kind words and deeds foster confidence in students and help them believe in themselves.

One person, however, is recognized by students, teachers, and administrators as standing out among the rest. Dr. Annie Michaelian is presently the Assistant Principal of Oakwood Primary School.  A graduate of South Huntington Union Free School District, she fulfilled her dream of becoming an elementary teacher in her home district. After excelling in that role, she was appointed the Assistant Principal of the Birchwood Intermediate School where she worked closely with colleagues and parents.

Among her most recent endeavors, she worked with Birchwood’s School-Based Management Team to develop the beautification of the Huntington Train Trestle. She helped in the coordination of numerous parents, students, and teachers to help “make a difference” in their community."

Dr. Michaelian is one of three honorees to be recognized at the SHEF Gala on April 10, 2019, at the Mansion in Oyster Bay for her ongoing contributions to school and community.

Way to Go Dr. Michaelian!

Congratulations to Dr. Paula Beck who recently published her first children’s book, Zoe and Joey Make a Friend. Dr. Beck has been an art teacher in the South Huntington Union Free School District for over two decades. She has long been an advocate of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Architecture and Mathematics) and has incorporated this concept into her teaching. Her students recycle materials and “engineer” individual art projects in class. Her projects at Maplewood Intermediate School show the creativity of young minds.  Her book was inspired by the work of the Maplewood students as she gleaned ideas from their enthusiasm and excitement.

Congratulations, Dr. Beck. We are excited to read your new book!

Thomas Costas took 2nd place in his first finals and looks to be a sold wrestler going forward.

On Saturday, December 1st., the 2018 Peers Tournament saw the Whitman Wildcats place 9 wrestlers in the top 4 with three earning 1st place trophies.  The tournament was successful overall as the Suffolk County coaches were now required to use a new software program that is meant to ensure each wrestler gets 4 to 5 matches throughout the tournament. The late Vincent Altebrando used to say how he wished the kids could wrestle in more matches, especially at the first tournament of the season and with this new system, the teams and parents were very pleased to see their kids wrestling more than before.

Impressively, from the 9 Whitman wrestlers that made it to the top 4, three placed first in their weight class. Among those is Anthony Constantino who beat 3 other wrestlers who were All-League and one who is All-County. When asking Coach Cardella how he would describe Constantino, he says: “he’s tough and has good technique. He’s put in a lot of work during the offseason that’s given him the confidence boost to keep stepping up.” Another Whitman first place wrestler in his weight class was Elvis Vasquez who Coach describes as being a “slick, quick and technical guy” who is a great leader and has “All-County ability.”  Our third first place winner is Joseph Feola who Coach sees as the perfect mix between our other first-place wrestlers. “He’s tough and he’s slick. He’s the total package wrestler.”

Coach Cardella then went on the mention other great performances from his wrestlers who placed top 4: “Marques Cheeks moved well all day and finished the day strong getting 2nd in his weight class.  Jacari McKay came in strong this year after unfortunately being unable to finish the season with the team last year. He got third in a tough weight class at this tournament and really showed he’s ready to take it to the next level.  Thomas Costas took 2nd place in his first finals after sticking with his game plan all tournament. And Herson Cisneros had a notable performance as well, beating 2 All-League wrestlers on his way to the finals and getting 2nd place for his weight class.”

The Wildcats have two more invitational tournaments before they open at home on Wednesday, December 19th at 6:30 PM

Congratulations to sophomore Thomas Baranowski who was named one of the Long Island Young Scholars of Mathematics by the Institute of Creative Problem Solving for Gifted and Talented Students at SUNY Old Westbury. The college offers sessions of this math program every Saturday to inspire creative problem solving to students across the island. The announcement came out in the Sunday, December 2nd edition of Newsday in the LI Schools section and after speaking with Thomas, he feels proud of himself for making it to this level of achievement in math. “I like learning, especially math,” Thomas shared as he tells us about the program and his involvement at Whitman. Thomas is a member of Mathletes and plays on the Varsity Tennis team. He is also interested in joining the National Art Honor Society and Philosophy Club. As a sophomore, Thomas will begin looking into colleges next year and anticipates that he will continue coursework in math and science while also pursuing his interest in computers. 

Way to Go Thomas!

Suffolk Zone for Excellence

Viteri and Roiland receive prestigious award.
Viteri and Roiland receive prestigious award.

Seniors Grace Roiland and Christian Viteri received the Suffolk Zone Award for excellence in Physical Education at a ceremony held on November 28th. This is the highest award given to students by NYSAHPERDand the Suffolk Zone, a professional organization made up of teachers and directors in Suffolk County. Students from every district in Suffolk were represented and their accomplishments were extolled to the over 400 attendees. We are proud of these fine students and their commitment to their Physical Education classes over the years. Congratulations!

For Christian, this award is proof of the hard work he’s put in over the years as a leader in helping people understand the importance of physical health, striving academically and the impact of getting involved in one’s school and community. He is a member of the Interact Club, Robotics Club, and is President of the Walt Whitman Choir. Outside of school, Christian is involved in food drives at his local church and tutors within his neighborhood. While Christian is the recipient of the Suffolk Zone Award, he is also the recipient of the Cutinella Award as well as being named to the Golden 11 at the Coaches Association Dinner for Section XI Sports. As a senior, Christian is considering Columbia, MIT and North Eastern to study Electrical Engineering and is considering Johns Hopkins or RPI to play college football. During his time at Whitman, Christian appreciates “all of the opportunities for well-roundedness” and having the chance to excel in music, as a scholar AP student, and all that he has been able to be involved with. “I’m inspired by all of the opportunities to strive for knowledge everywhere and using it to help others.”

For senior Grace Roiland, this award means that she’s been identified for what she said she’s always wanted to do, striving to “make people feel included and feel important no matter who they are or where they are from.” Grace knows she wants to become a Special Education teacher as she is looking to stay on the island at either LIU Post or SUNY Old Westbury. It was during her time at Whitman that she learned she wanted to become a Special Education teacher because she noticed how happy she’d become when entering the department. She found it fulfilling to see the growth of these students and imagines how incredible it would be to see that growth as a teacher. As a student at Whitman, Grace likes how approachable the teachers are, saying how “I can go to any person at Whitman whether I know them or not and they will welcome me with open arms.” Grace is on the cross country and fencing teams, as well as the president of Ambassador Club and is involved in Challenger Sports for soccer and unified basketball through the club.

Congratulations to both of these outstanding student-athletes!

Bob Cangero will be one of three honorees at the SHEF Gala Event in the spring of 2019.

The term Master Teacher is used to describe someone who inspires young minds, motivates them to love learning, and helps them develop a “can-do attitude.”  Although there are numerous great teachers, the Master Teacher tends to be in a class by itself.

Our own Bob Cangero is a true Master Teacher. Bob is presently the Coordinator of Teacher Mentoring for South Huntington. He was the District’s Teacher of the Year in 1996 and retired in 2001. After being retired for a short period of time, he realized that his years of experience and expertise developed over his career should be shared with others in the field.

In 2006 he assumed his present role working with new teachers. He provides mentoring and professional training. Bob is respected by all and trusted by new staff as he supports their growth and development in their profession.

Bob will be one of three honorees at the SHEF Gala Event in the spring of 2019. Save The Date- Wednesday, April 10, 2019, at the beautiful Mansion at Oyster Bay.

South Huntington’s Educational Foundation (SHEF) honors three people each year that has impacted our school's past, present, and future.  The following honorees  for the 2018-2019 school year are:

1. Bob Cangero (retired teacher)

One of the true late autumn pleasures is the annual presentation of our Main Stage Theater Company Production. This dynamic show brings tremendous energy and creativity to South Huntington while accentuating our district’s unwavering commitment to the arts. Each year, our outstanding director Sue Turner-Radin galvanizes her talented students into a cohesive theatrical troop, which brightens the stage and provides first-class entertainment before the holiday season.

And this year was nothing short of amazing as the curtain rose on the production of Noises Off.  Parents, staff, students and community members poured into Whitman’s Performing Arts Center to enjoy the very finest theater program and talented cast, director, and crew that Long Island has to offer. Called “the funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off presented a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figured in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.

John Safarik of Elks Lodge 1565 in Huntington is delighted to be donating dictionaries to each of Birchwood’s third-graders.

We are very fortunate in South Huntington to enjoy vibrant partnerships with community members and support groups who give selflessly to our schools.  We saw a perfect example of that powerful connection last week as John J. Safarik and Bob Vanderburgh of the Elks National Foundation Lodge 1565 in Huntington, along visited Birchwood to donate dictionaries for each of our third-graders. 

Of course, the donation quickly turned into a learning experience as the students accepted challenges, such as locating the longest word in the English language.  Birchwood third-graders accepted this special donation from our community with gratitude and bright smiles.

Who are the Elks? Elks invest in their communities through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, by undertaking projects that address unmet need, and by honoring the service and sacrifice of our veterans.

We thank our friends at the Elks Lodge for supporting South Huntington and caring so deeply for our students.

On Saturday November 24, South Huntington held the first annual Winter Wonderland that brought the spirit of the holiday season to the district children, families and all those involved in making this day such a success. With over 600 people joining in the new holiday tradition, it is no secret that numerous parents, staff members, and students were impressed by the decorated building and holiday activities put together by our staff and volunteers. The event gave district children of all ages the opportunity to sing songs, create holiday cards for our troops and enjoy gingerbread cookie decorating in honor of this special season. Students and their families had the chance to have their photo taken with Santa, Dreidels, and winter-themed backgrounds created by the Art Honor Society as a way of remembering this joyful event and celebrating the holiday season.

We offer special thanks to the numerous faculty and staff members who dedicated their time to this special event, and are particularly grateful to SEPTA, as well as our Latino Heritage Club, Art Honor Society, Girls Leaders Organization, and Huntington Muslim Youth Group for the countless hours that they spent preparing the Wonderland and entertaining our excited preschool and elementary-aged guests. It is amazing to note what can be accomplished when great teachers, administrators, staff, and students are given the room they need to create something special.

Assistant Principal Dr. Scott Muller (left) and Principal John Murphy (right) congratulate Girl Scouts Hailey Rankel, Rebecca Oltedal and Danielle Henneborn for receiving the prestigious Gold Award.

Three Walt Whitman Seniors earned the Gold Award for the Girl Scouts of USA by individually completing impactful projects that helped solve community issues. The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award in Girl Scouts and is the most difficult to achieve.

Senior Rebecca Oltedal earned the Gold Award by implementing her project that created feral cat shelters out of insulted Rubbermaid containers for cat colonies across Long Island. Rebecca put together an event for younger scouts where they heard from guest speakers and animal canine officers and were able to earn their animal helper badge by learning how to build the shelters themselves.  The cat shelters have been dispersed across Long Island to 10 people involved in caring and feeding the cat colonies. Rebecca is involved in Lamp Lighters, National Honor Society, Business Honor Society, Art Honor Society, as well as involvement in the Wilson Tech program for early childhood education. Rebecca would like to study hospitality management at Coastal Carolina University after graduation.

Senior Hailey Rankel earned the Gold Award through her project that helped a local preschool create a library. Hailey coordinated book sales at Silaswood in order to raise money for the small library in St. Peter’s preschool. Hailey donated books to the library as well and even recorded some of the books in her own voice for children to listen to as they are learning to read. Hailey is in Lamp Lighters, Ambassador’s Club, Philosophy Club, and National Honor Society and is interested in studying meteorology in the future.

Senior Danielle Henneborn earned the Gold Award by painting a mural in Walt Whitman’s 200 Wing. The project represents the art and music portion of the school and serves as a sign for new students to see where they can get involved creatively at the school. Danielle completed the mural independently and plans to stay local while continuing to study the arts after graduation. Danielle is involved in the Art Honor Society, National Honor Society, Visual Arts Club, and Video Yearbook.

While reflecting on their favorite part about Walt Whitman, Rebecca noted that “There are a lot more opportunities here compared to other high schools,” and Hailey and Danielle agreed in unison.  All three of these Gold Award recipients appreciate the level of support provided by the faculty and staff and how helpful and accommodating they have been throughout their time at Whitman. Congratulations to all three Girl Scouts on earning this prestigious award!

2018 Long Island Mentor Moot Court Tournament

On November 15th, the Walt Whitman High School Moot Court team competed in their first competition at the Federal Court in Central Islip.  The 2018 Long Island Mentor Moot Court Tournament is part of a new civics education program (that began last year) for Long Island high schools through a partnership between the Nassau County Bar Association, Hofstra University Law School, the Federal Bar Association, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, and the Justice Resource Center.  The program is part of the civics education initiative by the federal courts of the Second Circuit called “Justice for All: Courts and the Community.”  The competition is in the form of a mock oral argument in which the students play the role of lawyers arguing before the United States Supreme Court on a constitutional question. 

Asma Halimi, Meghan Kramer, George Link, and Musa Assassa did a phenomenal job. They were highly praised by the federal justices, district attorneys, defense attorneys and law clerks who grilled them during questioning.  The team was assisted in their preparation by teachers Rachel Cymbalista and Nicole Costanza and attorney Allan Hecht. Congratulations to the team on a great performance.

On Thursday, November 15th, Walt Whitman High School hosted the 10th annual Compassion Without Borders (CWB) Student Leadership Conference. CWB founder Dr. David Bennardo, a Harborfields Principal at the time, and now South Huntington Superintendent, shared how “sometimes beautiful things come from struggle and tragedy,” as he reflected on the program that was designed to galvanize the collective energies of the incredible students across Suffolk County.

It was 2009 and the Suffolk County High School Principal’s Association (SCHSPA) under the direction of its president, Edward Casswell, reached out to assist Harborfield’s student Dylan Thompson who was afflicted with Duchene’s Muscular Dystrophy. The SCHSPA along with neighboring parent-teacher groups and empathetic students from various high schools helped to turn Dylan’s life around by easing some of the burden faced by him and his family. Under the direction of SCHSPA, student leaders from various schools across the island showed how leadership and compassion can make a difference in the life of one individual and his family.

At this year’s 10th anniversary of CWB, leadership students from over 40 high schools heard from keynote speaker James Origgo who instilled the idea of discovering one’s passion and using that, along with the use of their own creativity, to help others in need. Each year there is a ‘Compassion’ component to the conference, and this year students supported ‘Operation Enduring Care’ sponsored by American Legion Post #1244 and ‘The Rucksack March’ sponsored by the United States Army.

The United States Army also conducted leadership workshops for students to break out into mixed groups to engage in physical team building activities to discover more about their personal leadership styles. “We have a quiz that breaks down leadership qualities into four main categories and each student gets to see how their strengths apply,” said Sargent Byrnes from the Smithtown Army Recruiting Station. “Sometimes they fit one category, more often they fit two and sometimes more, but it helps you see where your strengths and weaknesses are, based on how you answer these 25 questions.”

Students also had the opportunity to reconvene over lunch with other students from their schools in an art-making exercise that was reflective of the day’s theme. Thank you to all of the schools, from Bay Shore to Wilson Tech and every school in between, for attending this monumental event. We also thank the American Legion Post 1244, Whitman Principal John Murphy and his administrative team, Sheila Buhse and her amazing team in the South Huntington School Nutrition Program, and event facilitator Ann-Elizabeth Kenney, leadership teachers Lori Bolger and Kathleen O’Neill and their student committee members: Sean Rankel, Tiffany Dominguez, Alyssa Christiansen, Maxwell Fisher, Leonardo Montoya, Tyler Phelan, Yagmur Aykanat, Mycaela Riley, Colby Goldsmith, and Pamela Carey.

Walt Whitman senior Desiree Kleberg has signed her National Letter of Intent to play Division 1 Lacrosse at Quinnipiac University next fall. The transformation from Wildcat to Bobcat should be an easy one for this three-sport athlete. Desiree just finished her fall volleyball season and is working hard at making another strong start for her Lady Wildcat Basketball team. Emily Murray, last year’s new Assistant Coach for Girls Lacrosse is now Head Coach and has been impressed with her senior midfielder who ended last season with 40 goals and 10 assists and will begin her 4th season on the varsity squad this spring. “Desiree is an extremely talented player and displays leadership qualities on and off the lacrosse field,” Murray told us. “She sets a great example for the younger student-athletes in our program and community."

Way to Go Desiree!

This past October, Walt Whitman hosted the opening Project Excel Orientation for the year. The program’s theme this year is “Being transformed to embrace your future.” Coordinator of Student Services David Perkins tells us that the basis of this theme is to help students understand that they have a purpose and to take ownership of their lives and their actions.

“Each child has a purpose and the opportunity to fulfill it, and while some students find it easier to connect the dots, other students require extra guidance in realizing their potential,” said Mr. Perkins. "It becomes the responsibility of parents, educators and anyone who works to create a positive impact to help “paint a picture” for those students to better visualize their purpose."  

Keynote speaker Kelvin Joseph, CMO & COO of Steiner Sports Marketing, Inc., provided a real-life example of someone who was initially heading in a direction that was not warranting positive results. All it took was one person to redirect Kelvin, and the same holds true for others in need of guidance, as all it takes is one person to strike the chord to change someone’s ways.   

Rasahn Thompson, a 9th-grade student from Walt Whitman High School also shared his story of struggle before realizing he has a purpose. David Perkins noted that Rasahn “took ownership and realized quickly what needed to be done in order to redirect him onto a path towards his purpose.”

During his speech, Rasahn shared what this year’s theme means to him. “In order to have the future that you want, you have to do the best that you can at everything that you do. You have to transform yourself into the best person you could possibly be.” While some students come to this realization more easily than others, there are kids who learn this too late. It is up to teachers, staff and all those who seek to help students progress that need to step up by providing opportunities for students to discover their purpose.  

A special thanks to Project Excel Coordinators Ian Denson of Birchwood Intermediate School, Maria Colon of Maplewood Intermediate School, Shaka Williams of Silas Wood 6th Grade Center, Jennifer DeNoble of Stimson Middle School, and Mark Graciani of Walt Whitman High School for their continued commitment to the Project Excel program. 

 

Congratulations to Our October Athletes of the Month!

Congratulations to senior volleyball player Alexandra DeGaray on earning Athlete of the Month for October! Alexandra is the secretary of the World Language Honor Society, is involved in the Interact Club, Corn hole Club, GLO, National Honor Society and English Honor Society as well. For Whitman, Alexandra plays outside all around and plans to play libero for her travel team and in college. Since 8th grade during the winter months, Alexandra has been playing volleyball for Academy Long Island, a travel club that hosts players from all over the island. As a senior, Alexandra is keeping her options open as she looks to continue playing volleyball at either American University or Iona College. As for Whitman, she sees how special this young volleyball team is with a number of starting sophomores that give the team room for growth. This season the girls were one game short from making the playoffs with a record of 5-7. While disappointing for Alexandra, she still sees the potential for the young team in the upcoming seasons. As she looks back on her time at Whitman, Alexandra says “my favorite part about Whitman is the diversity and the teachers. The teachers have a great connection with their students that always leads to a positive impact.”

Congratulations to All-County Volleyball player Dominick Esposito on earning Athlete of the Month for October! After a tough playoff game against Sachem North, Dominick still looks back on his varsity season fondly. This season, Dominick liked what new assistant coach Citarella brought to the team, saying how funny he is and how “he really helped bring the team together.” The boy's varsity volleyball has a number of seniors, and as a senior himself, Dominick has applied to Binghamton and Albany, seeing the coming years as “full of limitless possibilities.” One of his favorite parts about playing volleyball is the quick turn around, how even if a player messes up, there’s another chance to come back right afterward. Dominick is the co-founder of the Corn Hole Club, a new club that plays behind the north cafeteria after school and has hopes of putting together a tournament during the coming months. This winter, Dominick is looking to join the bowling team and plays midfield for varsity lacrosse in the spring. Congratulations to both of these talented athletes!
