New Beginnings for Class of 2016

The Ward Melville High School Class of 2016 received thunderous applause as they marched past proud parents, family members, friends and educators to the sounds of “Pomp and Circumstance” at this year’s graduation ceremony.

Valedictorian Jeffrey Michel and salutatorian Ariel Long reflected upon their time in the district and shared words of advice with their fellow graduates. Student Government President Joseph Hines presented the class gift of new picnic tables for the stadium, and senior David Fraas led the audience in a moving performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Both Principal Dr. Alan Baum and Board of Education President William F. Connors Jr. delivered welcome addresses and encouraged the class to strive to reach their dreams.

The students were then called individually to the dais to receive their diplomas before turning their graduation tassels in unison with the direction of class representative Amanda Franko.

After capturing victories on the regional and state levels, P.J. Gelinas Junior High School’s and Ward Melville High School’s Science Olympiad Teams represented the school district and Long Island at the national tournament this spring.

As a result of their dedication and talents, Gelinas placed 10th in the nation and took home medals in the following events: Fossils, third-place; Reach for the Stars, third-place; Bio Process Lab, fourth-place; Crave the Wave, fifth-place; Disease Detective, second-place; Food Science, second-place; and Scrambler, fifth-place. Ward Melville placed 24th in the nation and won medals in the following events: Experimental Design, first-place, and Write It/Do It, fifth-place.

The National Science Olympiad Tournament was held at the University of Wisconsin-Stout and each division (middle and high school) included 60 teams from nearly every state in the nation. Two teams from New York qualified for the national tournament by placing first or second in the state contest. Each team consisted of 15 members who competed in 23 events. Medals were awarded to the top six places for each event.
 
Earlier this year, Gelinas placed first in the Eastern Long Island Regional Tournament and first in New York State. Ward Melville was ranked first at the Eastern Long Island Regional competition and second in New York State.

In recognition of their outstanding writing skills, six secondary students have been selected as winners in the 2016 National Council of Teachers of English writing contests.

Ward Melville High School juniors Kirti Nath and Michal Zadok were honored in the NCTE’s Achievement Awards in Writing Program while P.J. Gelinas Junior High School eighth-graders Sydney Korsen, Natalia Newton and Anushka Rajagopalan, as well as R.C. Murphy Junior High School eighth-grader Karen Xie, earned recognition in the Promising Young Writers Program.

For the contests, each student submitted two pieces of writing, which were evaluated by national judges on content, purpose, audience, tone, word choice, organization, development and style. Each winner received a certificate of recognition. Nationwide, 264 high school juniors were selected from a pool of 533 nominees for recognition for outstanding writing and 122 eighth-graders were selected to be honored from a pool of 159 candidates.
