BHS Goes Sailing

The last sail of the season was taken by Bethpage High School and Middle School students yesterday.  The 40 foot ship built in 1883 (the oldest oyster sloop in America) carried our students from the harbor to the mouth of the Long Island Sound.  Participants experienced raising the sails and dredging the bottom for local marine life.  They also learned about President Theodore Roosevelt and some of the fascinating history of Oyster Bay.  Thanks to Mr. Portuese and Mr. Carroll for making this happen!

Approximately 34,000 students across the country were recognized for their outstanding academic performance with this designation. Smiti placed among the top 5 percent of 1.6 million students who entered the competition by completing the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
 
Smiti is an AP Scholar with Distinction and captain of the robotics team, which for the first time in more than 10 years competed in the national-level FIRST Robotics Competition after winning top prize at the regional contest. She also conducted research on water filtration and nanotechnology at Hofstra University with Dr. Roche DeGuzman and is a member of the National and Spanish honor societies.

Keeping Our Beaches Clean

Beach Clean-Up 2017

Last Saturday Mr. Portuese with the help of Ms. Gatanas supervised the Marine Science Club as they participated in the Town of Oyster Bay Beach Clean-Up.  Our students worked hard to rid a mile stretch of Center Island of plastic bottles, soda cans and other miscellaneous trash.  One of the more interesting finds was a 1950’s vintage upper half of a boat engine.  We theorize that it was from a boat that sank years ago and was washed ashore by Superstorm Sandy’s surge.  It was covered by sand as the waters retreated.  Wind erosion over the years exposed the motor enough to be seen.  Our students dug the rest of it up so that it could be removed.  The weather wasn’t the greatest but the BBQ was!  Samples of local marine life were collected for our classroom tank.
