Knicks Honor Frost Student Jefferson with DeBusschere Award

Kyle Jefferson, a student at the middle school, was recently recognized by the New York Knicks basketball team as one of two recipients of the 2017 Dave DeBusschere Award. The award honors students who excel in the classroom, the basketball court and the community, and who exemplify the character of late Knicks basketball legend Dave DeBusschere.

On March 29, Jefferson and his parents attended a Knicks game at Madison Square Garden, where DeBusschere’s sons presented him with the award at center court. He will also be given the opportunity to attend a Jr. Knicks basketball clinic with Robert Frost’s team.

Jefferson, a true scholar-athlete, plays on both the Frost and Saints Cyril and Methodius Church basketball teams as well as two football leagues and a lacrosse team, all while maintaining an A average in school. A member of Frost’s National Junior Honor Society, he was recognized as the school’s Student of the Month for February. He serves as a volunteer for numerous community organizations and events, including Kids Adopt a Shelter, Ascension Lutheran Church, the Islip Public Library, the Deer Park Community Association’s annual fall festival and the Wyandanch Plaza Association’s National Chocolate Day festival.

P.S. Promotes Unity at Deer Park Schools


Last month’s snowstorm forced purple-clad students at the high school and Robert Frost to move their annual observance of P.S. I Love You Day from Feb. 10 to Feb. 14, but the spirit of unity and positivity was undimmed.

The nonprofit organization P.S. I Love You Day was started in 2010 by West Islip teenager Brooke DiPalma, following the tragic suicides of her father and a senior at her school. Held annually on the second Friday of February, the day promotes positive messages of love, acceptance and community, symbolized by the color purple.

“We decorated each student’s locker and staff member’s door or desk with messages of positivity and inclusiveness,” said Community Service Club adviser Christine DiProperzio, who organized the event along with Student Council adviser Kristen Salemi. “It is our hope that the students will know how much they matter to us.”

Deer Park Hires Two Special Ed Administrators


The district recently announced two new administrative positions in special education. Brian Norton was named district administrator of secondary special education, while David Renahan was named district administrator of elementary special education.

“The special education position was split in order to better serve the students, their parents and the teachers as well,” said James Cummings, the district’s assistant superintendent for pupil personnel services. “Having experts on both the elementary and secondary level will make our program more efficient and more effective.”

Norton had most recently served as an associate principal at Deer Park High School beginning in 2014, after five years as an associate principal in the South Country School District. He began his educational career in 1998 as a special education teacher in the Northport-East Northport School District. A Stony Brook resident and graduate of Stony Brook University, he earned a master’s degree in special education from Dowling College and a certificate of advanced studies in educational leadership from the College of Saint Rose.

“I look forward to serving the students and families of the Deer Park community in this new capacity,” said Norton.

Renahan previously worked for 12 years in the Riverhead Central School District, most recently as that district’s assistant director of special education. He was a special education teacher in Riverhead for eight years, after teaching third grade in the Connetquot Central School District. A resident of Centereach, he earned his bachelor’s degree in child study at St. Joseph’s College in 2004, his master’s degree in literacy from Long Island University in 2006, and an advanced graduate certificate in educational leadership from Stony Brook University in 2013.

Frost Orchestra Students Get ‘Up Close’ at Lincoln Center

The eighth-grade orchestra at Robert Frost went on its annual field trip to Lincoln Center on Feb. 8, where the students enjoyed a music program called Music Up Close. They were able to watch a professional chamber group rehearse for a performance of Mendelssohn’s Trio No. 1 in D minor for piano, violin and cello; ask questions of the performers; and tour the buildings that make up the Lincoln Center campus.
