Kudos to the Junior High cast of Disney's Descendants, The Musical. Imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost – home of the most infamous villains who ever lived – the teenaged children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar, and Cruella De Vil have never ventured off the island… until now.
WOW!!! Determination and perseverance paid off for the CSH CyberHawk team 2875 at the Long Island Regional 1 Competition from March 20-22.

Celebrating 21 years of the Literary Luncheon! Each year, the CSHPTG (Jr./Sr. High School parent/teacher organization) sponsors their largest fundraiser, the "Literary Luncheon." All funds raised support the Cultural Arts Programs brought in for all the schools in the district. This year, the CSHPTG was pleased to introduce, Nicole Stott, who spoke about her book, Back to Earth on March 22 to a sold-out crowd at the Huntington Crescent Club.
Bus safety is paramount to our youngest at Goosehill who must learn to navigate all the rules of what it means to ride the bus and follow the rules. Huntington Coach realized that just training the drivers was only part of the equation, the students themselves need to be taught bus safety in the classroom. Enter “Buster the Bus,” a robotic miniature bus that is remote controlled with blinking lights, eyes, a working stop sign arm, and it speaks!
Oh, what a night! The first annual district-wide “Charity Event” sports night was held on March 9 for students, staff and families. This collaborative effort to bring the schools and community together has been a vision of Superintendent Jill M. Gierasch, and an important Board of Education District Goal. By increasing family and community engagement, it is the hope of administration to develop greater partnerships by offering K-12 special events at programs like the fall Homecoming game half-time and pre-game carnival, and the first district-wide STEAM Night and Parent University Night.
