At the Nov. 15 meeting of the Three Village Central School District Board of Education, the New York State School Boards Association presented Ward Melville High School student Ella Ignacio with the Tomorrow’s Leaders Today Award. The recognition program acknowledges and celebrates acts of leadership that positively impact the district and greater community.

“You just took it upon yourself to do something that would make life better for people,” said NYSSBA representative Bernadette Smith when presenting the award to Ignacio. “We recognize your efforts and hope that they serve to inspire other students to bring additional positive change to New York State school districts and communities.”

Ignacio illustrated the children’s book, “Do Skunks Think Skunks Stink?” and sold copies to benefit Angela’s House. Angela’s House is a nonprofit organization that cares for children with special health care needs, while providing support to their families.

Additionally, the Three Village Board of Education presented Ignacio a certificate to commemorate her leadership and illustration work.

Halloween spirit was seen across Three Village on Oct. 31. Students at the elementary schools paraded outside their buildings to show off their costumes to families and friends. Celebrations took place in the classroom too, with students decorating pumpkins and participating in Halloween-themed lessons.

Ward Melville High School held its annual Trick or Treat Street to provide a safe, fun environment for families to go trick-or-treating. High School clubs decorated doorways on the exterior of the building and handed out candy. Many of the stations had activities for children to participate in including coloring, pumpkin picking and a bean bag toss.

Hispanic Heritage Month in Three Village

The Three Village World Language Department celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 through lessons and student activities. Festivities kicked off with a spirit week in which secondary students and staff were encouraged to dress up as Hispanic actors, singers, in the colors of their favorite football team and the colors of one of the many different flags of Spanish-speaking countries.

At Ward Melville High School and both junior high schools, students created posters of well-known Latinos, which were displayed in an exhibit and used during a scavenger hunt with students in all levels of Spanish classes. Students were challenged with finding the answers to questions using the information on the posters.

Students in upper-level Spanish classes created podcasts to highlight significant contributions made by Hispanic Americans to the United States. The podcasts were then used as a listening activity. Students used the podcasts to complete an analysis and cultural comparison in Spanish.

Artwork filled the halls at the secondary buildings to honor Hispanic Heritage Month. Students in Mrs. Farley’s classes decorated feathers in the colors of the Latin American flags and created wings to design a “What Lifts You” mural.

Not only did students participate in in-class activities. Ward Melville students learned about Hispanic culture through a Zumba class with Mrs. Primerano as their instructor. They were excited to step outside of the classroom and move to the music.

Additionally, several high-achieving students were honored at the 10th annual Hispanic Heritage Night Celebration held by the Town of Brookhaven on Oct. 6. Congratulations to Aiden Burgueno, Leida Fernandez, Zachary Fondacaro, Joana Koch, Steven Morales Jr., Rowan Serna, Eva Peralta, Tayla Perez, Savanna Pineros, Ava Sarlo, Luca Torres, Landis Ulloa, Emily Vintimilla and Julianna Vrabec. The event showcased the richness of Hispanic culture through art, music and food.
