The Bethpage High School Class of 1978 returned to campus on Aug. 10 to take a walk down memory lane as part of the 40th reunion weekend.

“It was a thrill to meet these Golden Eagle alumni and show them how their school has changed and yet remained the same,” said Superintendent of Schools David Schneider. “Their faces were beaming with pride as we walked through the entire campus, with many of them returning for the first time in several years.”
The alumni walked the halls and toured the pool, auditorium, courtyard and football field while observing many other facility upgrades. Most importantly, they reconnected with former classmates, near and far.

“I hope they enjoyed their reunion weekend and continue to remember their time growing up in Bethpage fondly,” Schneider added.  

Maritime Festival at BHS

This year’s Maritime Festival is dedicated to our longtime friend and educator Sue Rankin.  Mrs. Rankin has onboard from the very first year, teaching the third grader’s all about the marine food web and the vital role of plankton.  This Maritime Festival was her last, she’s retiring in June and we wish her great happiness.  Mrs. Rankin’s energy, creativeness and love of all things related to the sea will be missed.  A special thanks to all the building and grounds, custodial, clerical and teaching staff who help make this event possible every year.

Bethpage School District successfully hosted the Long Island Special Olympics North Division with the help of over 400 volunteers!  While we would have preferred better weather, the day was still a great success for the athletes who still came out to compete and persevere!  The spirit of the day was fantastic and everyone had a great time!  Thanks to the volunteers, the corporate sponsors, the Town of Oyster Bay and special guests TOBAY Supervisor Joe Saladino and Nassau County Legislators Rose Walker and Laura Schaefer.  Congratulations to all the athletes for showing us how to compete with such grace!
