Kickline Wins Again!


The JV and Varsity Kickline teams spent this past Sunday (February 4th) at Nassau Community College competing in the Nassau Scholastic Kickline Championship.

 JV ended the morning with a 3rd place finish in both of their routines (Kick and Team Performance).

 The Varsity competed in the afternoon session earning 1st place in kick, 2nd in pom, 2nd in jazz and 4th in team performance.  The highlight of the day, however, was winning the Grand Championship in the kick category.  That award is given to the team who has the highest cumulative score for the 3 previous Scholastic competitions in a specific category.

 A special congratulations to the four seniors on Varsity; Captain Francesca Conte, Captain Julianna Griffin, Team Officer Gabby McGlynn, and Team Officer Heather Palmer.   The seniors had a fantastic day and a great ending to their local competition season.  The Varsity team is excited to showcase their routines at Nationals in Orlando, Florida in a few weeks.

 Congratulations Golden Girls and Company!

Gymnasts for a Cause

Bethpage Gymnasts spent their Martin Luther King, Jr. Day giving back by participating in an event with gymnasts from around Long Island to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis.  Thanks to all who participated along with Coach Kim Rhatigan!

Visiting the Lighthouse

The High School and Middle School students that attended this trip had a rare treat.  Two of the light keepers (retired Navy engineers) were on site and gave us a tour of not only the lighthouse but the basement and the actual lens house.  In the basement the engineers explained how they rigged all the automated systems that regulate both the interval and rotation of the twin spotlights.  Up in the lens house the keepers demonstrated how they maintain the electrical systems that keep the light operating smoothly.  The top of this structure provided clear breathtaking views of Fire Island.

Our students were shown how ship wrecked passengers were rescued in the old days utilizing a makeshift pulley system, delivered by cannon!  They also learned how a Fresnel lens amplified an oil lamp into a beam that could shine out into the ocean.  This technology was state of the art prior to electric lights.  The four ton, 1st order Fresnel lens was recovered from the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia and is now proudly on display in its own building.

Thanks to Mr. Portuese and Mr. Carroll for making this happen!
