The Board of Education honored and celebrated a myriad of accomplishments of both the district’s students and staff members at its June meeting.

W.S. Mount Elementary School second-grader Ryan Scriven was honored for his award-winning piece in this year’s New York State Association for Pupil Transportation School Bus Safety Poster Contest. Ryan received third place in Suffolk County for the K-2 division. His poster followed the contest’s theme of making the school bus a bully free zone.

Secondary student-scientists from R.C. Murphy and P.J. Gelinas junior high schools were honored for their successful competition seasons.

Murphy’s Science Bowl team was commended for their win at the Brookhaven National Laboratory/Long Island Regional Middle School Science Bowl contest. The team competed in the National Science Bowl Contest this spring.

Gelinas’ Science Olympiad team was also recognized for their 10th place finish at the National Science Olympiad Competition and for earning eight medals in the contest, including three first-place awards.

Gelinas eighth-grader Sahil Sangwan represented his school and district during this year’s National Spelling Bee in late May, making it to the third round.

The Board also thanked student representative George Zenzerovich for his year of service and presented the soon-to-be graduate with a scholarship for his continued education.

The Board of Education has appointed Jonathon Rufa as assistant principal of R.C. Murphy Junior High School, effective July 1. Mr. Rufa will take the reins from Kevin Finnerty, who was appointed as a Ward Melville High School assistant principal earlier this year.
 
Mr. Rufa is a familiar face in the district, having served as Murphy’s dean of students for three years and most recently as the transitional lead teacher for physical education and athletics at both junior high schools. During this work in the district, Mr. Rufa assisted with student and staff supervision, facilitated department meetings, and was engaged with daily school operations, including parent conferences, discipline and elements of student management. He was also a member of the instructional support team.

During his tenure in Three Village, Mr. Rufa has been a valued member of the district’s coaching staff, having led the high school’s junior varsity baseball team during the springs of 2014 and 2015 as well as the Murphy’s baseball team during the springs of 2012 and 2013.  





Celebrating Milestones

R.C. Murphy Junior High School students and staff members marked a milestone for the 325-member ninth-grade Class of 2015 as they celebrated this year’s moving-up ceremony.

Gathered in the school’s gymnasium, the administrators welcomed and congratulated the soon-to-be high school sophomores on their years of achievement and dedication.

“From day one of your seventh-grade year, it was clear to me that you would be a group that would set the standard for what we expect from our students at R.C. Murphy Junior High School,” said Principal Vincent Vizzo. “I wish you every bit of success as you journey to Ward Melville High School, and in every endeavor you choose for your future.”

Members of the teaching staff presented departmental awards and Assistant Principal Kevin Finnerty announced the winners of this year’s Presidential Academic Fitness Award. Mr. Vizzo oversaw the presentation of Character Achievement Awards and congratulated the recipients of the Presidential Volunteer Service Award. The students then crossed the dais one by one to receive their traditional moving-up certificates.

Mr. Finnerty concluded the ceremony by addressing the special connection he has with the class. “You will always have special place in my memories, as tonight I am moving up to the high school with you,” he said. “Since our first days together three years ago, you have continued to impress and inspire me with your dedication to school, eagerness to excel and, most importantly, your good character.”
