It is the mission of Copiague Middle School faculty and staff to create an educational atmosphere in which each student is provided with the opportunity to realize their full potential as students, athletes, artists, musicians, and individuals through personal attention and encouragement. The curriculum in the middle school has been developed to challenge and stimulate the minds of students in the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades, while remaining responsive to the needs of each student during the transition from childhood to adolescence.
Since its inception the team teaching approach has benefited students and faculty alike, providing additional outlets and experiences for each student. In addition, the nearly 1,200 students enrolled in Copiague Middle School are provided with a wealth of opportunities to develop as individuals by participating in student government, athletics, clubs, student organizations, class trips, community service, peer mentoring, and many schoolwide events.
By promoting each student's self-confidence, respect for others, and avoiding standardized solutions, the faculty and staff at Copiague Middle School have been successful at establishing an effective school community that is truly centered on the student.
Twenty-two eighth-graders from Copiague Middle School were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society during a ceremony held in the school’s auditorium on Oct. 25.
In order to be eligible for the National Junior Honor Society, students must maintain a cumulative average of 92 or above, be involved in community service/volunteer activities, have faculty recommendations and write an essay along with their application.
National Junior Honor Society advisers Francesa Walker and Paul Harvey welcomed students and their families to the induction. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon praised the students on their achievements. “This is a tremendous accomplishment,” she said. “The academic path you have set for yourselves has set you up to be highly successful.”
Members spoke about the four pillars of the National Junior High School – leadership, service, character and scholarship – before lighting a candle to symbolize each characteristic. Guest speaker and Copiague Middle School choral director Kaitlin Schneekloth offered words of advice for the newest members of the society.
Principal Andrew Lagnado presented certificates to each inductee before they recited the National Junior High School pledge. The district congratulates the following inductees: Amarelys Aguilera; Jacqueline Balzano; Arda Bilbay; Roman Burrus; Jakub Dobrowolski-Kosoir; Joseph Falco Jr.; Katelyn Gonzalez; Sophia Gonzalez; Johnell Hankerson II; Keilyn Hernandez-Bonilla; Adriana Jimenez-Bonilla; Tierra Jones; Gwendolyn Neger; Valeria Padilla; Sahil Parikh; Devonie Rhoden; Cathrine Sakin; Michelle Seizeme; Deep Shah; Kuba Szulejko; Klara Thelusma and Natalie Unger.
