Maturity on Display at Frost’s Moving Up

Maturity was on display as the eighth-graders of Robert Frost marked their transition to high school at a June 24 moving up ceremony in the school’s gymnasium.

After the traditional processional and Pledge of Allegiance, first up was Principal Eliana K. Levey.

“It has been such a pleasure to watch them mature and grow,” said Levey, describing her students, before she told them, “There is nothing you cannot do if you believe in yourselves.”

Next on the program were speeches from Student Council co-presidents Zachary Cresciullo and Lindsay Dominique.

“Goodbye Robert Frost, and hello to the high school Class of 2019,” said Cresciullo.

Dominique talked about succeeding in high school and making good choices, before telling her classmates, “Good luck and congratulations on making it to high school.”

Levey and associate principals Charles Cobb and Gary Ramonetti handed out student awards before the evening’s main act – the presentation of graduation certificates to each proud student.

Closing out the ceremony, Deer Park High School Principal James Cummings addressed his future students. “My advice is to take advantage of what high school has to offer,” he told them, urging the young men and women to find activities and experiences to connect to help build their bright futures.

 

 

Slithery Seventh-Grade Science

Science of the cold-blooded variety slithered into Deer Park’s Robert Frost Middle School during a recent visit from Erik “The Reptile Edventurer” Callender.

Frost seventh-grade classes enjoyed Callender’s “The World of Reptiles and Amphibians” presentation, which gave the excited students a chance to learn about and interact with a dozen different animal species, including a giant snake.


In Wellness, Deer Park Looks SHARP

Deer Park was chosen by the Suffolk County Department of Health Services as the second annual SHARP Award winner, out of a field of more than 40 applicants. The district was honored at a June 10 ceremony at the high school’s auditorium, where members of administration and the Board of Education were presented with a certificate by Dr. James Tomarken, Suffolk County’s commissioner of health services.

This prestigious recognition was earned in part due to the district’s outstanding wellness policy, in which Deer Park worked with Healthy Schools NY and Western Suffolk BOCES to develop a comprehensive policy which promotes healthy foods and adequate time for lunch, limits fundraising to healthy foods or nonfood items, limits the frequency of classroom celebrations that involve food to no more than one per class per month, encourages daily stretching and movement activities in the classroom in which teachers guide students through physical activity breaks, enables the use of school facilities by community groups to promote physical activity, includes nutrition education as part of classroom instruction rather than just in health education classes, and prohibits soft drink logos on school property.

Another achievement that significantly contributed to Deer Park being chosen for the SHARP award was the third annual Health & Wellness Fair, a free public event held last November which included numerous health-related activities and more than 40 informational booths.

The Suffolk County Department of Health Services develops and implements programs designed to help children adopt healthy nutritional practices and increase physical activity. It was required in 2012 by New York State to collaborate with Nassau County, Long Island hospitals and community agencies to conduct a community health assessment and create a community health plan for the years 2014-2017. The collaborative team became an entity called the Long Island Health Collaborative, which chose two priority areas to focus on for the coming years, chronic diseases and obesity. The SHARP Award was created in 2013 to recognize school districts that promote wellness in the educational environment and in the community.

“The movement in health care is toward wellness, prevention and personal responsibility,” said Tomarken. “The Deer Park School District, through its policies and activities, is helping to promote healthy choices that support wellness and has earned the 2015 SHARP Award.”


Best in Band at Dorney Park

The Robert Frost Middle School Band, directed by teacher Mike Livorno, won first place in the concert band category and earned a superior rating at the annual Music in the Parks festival competition, held on June 6 at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

The 76 select seventh- and eighth-grade student-musicians from Frost were judged by two adjudicators on two band pieces, “Wyndham Variations” by James Swearingen and Russian folk song “Meadowlands.”

“The competition judges were impressed with both the size of our group and the musicality they displayed at such a young age,” said Livorno.

Following their winning performance, the elated students spent the rest of the day enjoying Dorney Park.


Arts, Civics and Science Enhance Voting Night

While serving as the site for the district’s annual budget vote and board election on May 19, Deer Park High School welcomed the community with an exciting array of activities and displays highlighting the creativity and talent of students from each of the district’s schools. As visiting families wandered the halls, they enjoyed an art show, Shakespearian scene performances and a science fair in the gymnasium. In the cafeteria, elementary students from JFK, JQA and May Moore learned about civics by participating in a mock vote.
