Mr. Anthony Paolano At the March Board of Education meeting, Mr. Anthony Paolano announced his plans to retire at the close of this school year. Mr. Paolano volunteered his time as a trustee on the Board for 21 years serving 7 terms beginning in 2000. (He served as president 4 times.) He has been a member of the community since 1990, where he lives with his wife Dorrie, and children Mark Anthony (class of 2009), Katie (class of 2012) and Lauren (class of 2016). He shared, “It has been a true honor and privilege to be a trustee of the CSH school district for over 20 years.
Two teams from the high school’s “Advance Science Research I” (ASR) class were awarded Honorable Mention for their ExploraVision projects. ASR teacher, Mr. Jaak Raudsepp, shared, "ExploraVision participants were challenged to consider the future and imagine a technology that might exist 20 years from now. Using real scientific research, students outlined methods to plan and test their ideas. Out of over 3,000 projects entered this year, 283 received honorable mention.” Outstanding work, congratulations!
We've missed you Seahawks! One of the eeriest sights throughout the pandemic has been the empty fields at the Jr./Sr. High School. Normally bustling with sports and cheering fans, the turf fields, tennis courts, track and baseball fields have remained quiet. But starting in late January, the state allowed high school athletes to return to the fields competing in abbreviated seasons with strict guidelines in place. After nearly one year of being sidelined due to COVID-19, three compressed seasons rolled out beginning on February 1 for “high-risk” winter sports, March 1 for “high-risk” fall sports, and April 22 for high-risk spring sports.
Last year, at the June 8th 2020 Virtual Board of Education meeting, fourteen students were honored with the Junior Book Awards by the Director of Guidance, Mr. Justin Arini, designated by colleges to Juniors with the highest levels of academic achievement. Due to COVID-19, students were not allowed to gather in person to receive their books. So today, March 12th, 2021, Mr. Arini, Principal, Dr. Jim Bolen, and Superintendent, Robert C. Fenter, were very pleased to be able to share their congratulations in person this morning in the high school library, where student recipients gathered for breakfast and hand-delivered book awards to share with their friends.
Book published: Congratulations to Lloyd Harbor School Psychologist, Dr. Wendy Moss, who recently published her 10th book, titled The Friendship Book. The book is an upbeat resource meant to help forge lasting relationships, understand friendships, resolve conflicts and how to be a good friend.
