Students Honored for Artistry, Achievements

Celebrating the many successes of its students’ artistic talent, character, academic successes, leadership and citizenship, Copiague School District held its Superintendent’s Art Gallery Inductees and Student Recognition Awards ceremony prior to the May 23 board of education meeting in the Copiague Middle School auditorium.

District administrators, faculty and board of education members gathered with invited students and their guests to celebrate their successes.

The Superintendent’s Art Gallery inductees – 38 pieces of art – were on display for the audience to enjoy. Each student was presented with a certificate to acknowledge their achievement.

In 1996, the Superintendent’s Art Gallery began when the Copiague art teachers selected several pieces of student artwork to display. Through the years, the collection has grown to provide a showcase of student artwork in corridors and offices in each of the schools. Each of the framed pieces is identified by a brass plate noting the student-artist’s name, grade level and year the piece was completed.

The Student Recognition Awards highlight students for their outstanding achievements. They are presented twice a year to a small number of students for their special accomplishments.

“Publicly recognizing excellence is our way of celebrating some of the great successes of the Copiague schools’ programs and, at the same time, enabling us to showcase outstanding role models to our school community,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon.

Thirty-seven students were honored during the ceremony, as board of education members read a brief description from teachers and principals on why the students were designated for the honor.

The Copiague community joined together to celebrate the accomplishments of the Copiague School District on May 14. After a two-year hiatus, community members, students, staff, administrators, board of education members, community organization representatives and local legislators once again gathered at Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School to showcase and highlight the district’s successes for the community summit.

Wet weather conditions moved the first half of the program into the high school’s auditorium. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon welcomed guests to the community summit. “To see all that the students have accomplished over the last year is a very prideful moment for all of the teachers and administrators here today,” she said. “We are particular proud of the academics that we are offering our students.”

Board of Education President Brian J. Sales thanked everyone for their hard work to put the community summit together. “Community summit is an opportunity for us to share some of the things going on in our schools,” he said “We celebrate the success we’ve had, and we collaborate on ways we can do things better. For the board, administration and staff, our top priority is putting students first. We are extremely proud of these results.”

Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School Principal Joseph Agosta introduced the top 10 students in the Class of 2022. Later in the day, Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School hosted its top 20 luncheon.

Outside the high school, students from the elementary schools, middle school and high school showcased their work for the community to enjoy. Some of the performances included the middle school step team, the Great Neck Road Elementary dance team, the Susan E. Wiley Dance team and the high school Zumba Club.
