World languages were celebrated in a variety of ways as P.J. Gelinas Junior High School marked this year’s Foreign Language Week.

The building’s Foreign Language Honor Society participated in a poster contest, calling all members to create colorful pieces based on the central theme “Languages Enrich Your Mind.” The entire student body enjoyed viewing a traveling mural exhibit throughout the week in the foreign language hallways, as well as taking part in trivia and door decorating contests. The week concluded with an International Night celebration featuring five musical performances and an array of authentic dishes.

Congratulations to ninth-grader Komal Grewal for winning the poster contest and Brian Scripture’s class for winning the door decorating contest.

Students from Minnesauke, Setauket and W.S. Mount elementary schools, as well as P.J. Gelinas and R.C. Murphy junior high schools, helped to break the Guinness World Record for the most horns performing on stage at one time during this year’s SCMEA Day of Horn.

The record was originally 180, held by a group of Pakistani sheep hornists, but this year’s SCMEA group surpassed that with more than 270 players on stage.


Showcasing Musical Talents

The P.J. Gelinas Junior High School String Quartet was selected to perform and participate in learning activities at the LISFA Chamber Music Festival held at Stony Brook University’s Staller Center this January.  

The quartet, comprised of violinists Samuel Catalfo and Benjamin Catalfo, violist Samuel Kim and cellist Janet Song, had the chance to attend a workshop with the Bryant Park Chamber Players and work on their musicianship with professional coaches. At the end of the festival, they performed Mozart’s String Quartet, K. 157 on the Staller Center Recital Hall stage.  

“It was a pleasure to see and hear our string quartet perform so well at this All-County event,” said teacher Alisa Rabbitt. “They represented our school and district in a stellar way.‬”

Where in the World

Seventh- and eighth-graders from P.J. Gelinas and R.C. Murphy junior high schools demonstrated their historical knowledge during the National Geographic Bee this January.  

All students participated in an initial round of testing, and winners from each social studies class moved on to a schoolwide competition. The school competitions yielded two champions: R.C. Murphy eighth-grader Peter DiPietro and P.J. Gelinas seventh-grader Matthew Kronenberg.

These students will now advance to the next level of the competition for the chance to qualify for the statewide competition.
