Officials of the National Merit Scholarship Program have selected Cold Spring Harbor High School senior Caitlin M. Roberts as a 2022 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist. This prestigious honor is awarded to students who show exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies.
On September 13, Principal Daniel Danbusky, held the annual Safe Driving Presentation, mandatory for all seniors. The mission for this evening each year, is that academics are secondary to student safety, and repeated lessons never get old when it comes to our children getting behind the wheel. The high school still maintains an open campus policy allowing seniors to drive off campus for lunch or free periods. Students know that driving is a privilege here, and our students have taken this privilege seriously, and have been responsible for it throughout the years.
“Since my arrival as the new principal here at the Jr./Sr. High School, we have hit the ground running! I want to welcome my new administrative team of Assistant Principals; Jason Huntsman and Caitlyn Coffey, who jumped in and fully immersed themselves for a successful opening day. I owe a huge debt of thanks to the custodial staff and to Brian Graham, Director of Facilities, and his staff for the large-scale repair work that was completed over the summer, including safety measures.
A warm welcome to our newest staff! Each year an orientation is held to acclimate new staff to the district and introduce them to the culture of the community. In August, teachers new to the district had an opportunity to hear from veteran teaching staff, engage in hands-on practices designed to engrain a sense of teamwork and partnership, meet with leaders of curriculum and instruction, and hear from the administrative team along with Amelia Brogan, president of the Board of Education.

Thank you to our community for coming out to support this very special event, which honored our heroes on the 20th Anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks. We were joined by the military, police, fire department and first responders, as well as students, staff and community members who lost loved ones. The ceremony was held on Seahawk Field prior to the football game, and for those that were not able to attend that evening – please click on the links below for photographs and a video to share with our community. A very special thanks to Joe Monastero and his team for organizing this incredible evening.
