Maritime Festival at BHS

IMG_0578(2).jpg

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!

21st C: Trip to NY Aquarium

On Saturday students from BHS visited the New York Aquarium that is still recovering from super storm Sandy.  Many of the animals are in temporary enclosures waiting for the scheduled July re-opening of several main exhibit halls.  The visit began with a guided tour by an aquarium specialist.  This was followed by an amazing sea lion show in the aqua theater.  Participants had time to revisit their favorite exhibits before lunch on the world famous boardwalk including the iconic Coney Island Nathan’s.  Several of the photos below were taken by Bethpage’s own aspiring photographer Daniel Wilson.

Sophomore Raises Money for Lupus Alliance of LI
Adina Rahman, a Bethpage High School sophomore, raised $600 to benefit the Lupus Alliance of Long Island/Queens. This is the third year Adina has collected money for this worthy organization, garnering a total of $1,600 over that time. Adina said she was motivated to raise money for the alliance because of family members who struggle with the disease.

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!
