P.J. Gelinas Junior High School technology and woodworking club, under the leadership of teacher Kraig Herrel, recently deployed their technological skills and created a mini golf course for a children’s program at the Emma S. Clark Library.  In addition to building the course, the students were among those who volunteered to assist the attendees during the library event.

Ready for Broadway

Ready for Broadway

With the help of trained Broadway professionals, 150 members of the chorus, band and orchestra at P.J. Gelinas Junior High School had the opportunity to learn the behind-the-scenes tricks of a staged Broadway fight scene.

During the Broadway Stage Combat Workshop, the students learned from Broadway fight choreographers how stage combat works during a live performance. Then, they were fully engaged in a question and answer session with two ensemble members of the musical “School of Rock.”  One of the aspects discussed was the importance of preparing for an audition.

Following the workshop, the students attended a performance of “School of Rock” and, afterward, met with Three Village alumnus David Ruttura, who is currently working as the associate director of the musical.











Gelinas Speller Heads to National Bee

Gelinas Speller Heads to National Bee
P.J. Gelinas Junior High School seventh-grader Ryan Himmelsbach accomplished something that he has worked toward for the past three years – being crowned the top Long Island spelling champion.

Ryan, a three-time school spelling bee champion, went head-to-head with the region’s top 47 spellers during the Long Island Spelling Bee at Hofstra University. After a challenging 11 rounds in three hours, Ryan ultimately captured the top place with the word “requiem.”

As Long Island champion, Ryan will now compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in National Harbor, Maryland from May 28-June 3. The winner of this contest will win a $40,000 prize.

Three Year Spelling Streak

Three Year Spelling Streak
Three-time school spelling bee champion and current P.J. Gelinas Junior High School seventh-grader Ryan Himmelsbach is once again bound for the Long Island Spelling Bee, which will be held in February at Hofstra University.

Ryan, who has advanced to the regional level the past three years, won this year’s contest by correctly spelling the word “anesthesia” after going head-to-head with Gelinas’ top spellers for 17 challenging rounds.
