Members of the Copiague Middle School Builders Club spread their kindness and love just in time for Valentine’s Day when they made their annual visit to the Tanner Park Senior Center in Copiague on Feb. 7. Alongside their club adviser Maria Ostrofsky, the students created handmade cards filled with Valentine’s messages. They delivered the cards – along with a red rose – to the senior citizens to brighten their day. The students also made their way to the dance floor to practice alongside the seniors.

Student Accomplishments Honored

A select number of students were honored for their hard work, dedication and overall academic performance prior to the Jan. 22 board of education meeting in the Copiague School District. The student recognition awards are held only twice per year, and the Copiague Board of Education selects students who have been chosen by administrators, teachers and staff in their respective buildings for their efforts.

The awards are presented to a small number of students for their extra special accomplishments. “Being honored is a very special award in and of itself,” said Copiague School District Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon. “Appearing in front of your parents, friends, community and the board of education is a distinction. 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.”

Congratulations to the following students: Deauville Gardens East Elementary School – Zoe Espinal Castro and Elvis Sanchez Balbuena; Deauville Gardens West Elementary School – Caleb Johnson and Lael Carol Renee Quarles; Great Neck Road Elementary School – Grace Cisneros Santillana and Asma Lounici; Susan. E. Wiley Elementary School – Jealyn Guelee and Amber Joseph; Copiague Middle School – Marie Andkerla E. Pierre, Kyle Belgrave, Jace Carter, Kimberly Corvera Molina, Zoey Khisova, Christian McCue and Isabella Rufrano; and Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School – Rebecca Alara, Mohamad Altenbakji, Genesis Martinez Gomez, Shawn Smaldon, Victoria Wheby, Carlos Zelayandia Reyes and Tiffany Zincz.

Middle School Lessons in Digital Technology

For the past four years, the Copiague Middle School English department has incorporated one of the district’s technology goals on cyber awareness and security into several lessons beginning in October. With the ever-increasing concern for the “digital footprints” of students, as well as Artificial Intelligence, librarian Dawn Koziarz and middle school English chairman Chris Gaudioso collaborated to conduct a series of lessons in the library. During the school year, all seventh and eighth grade English classes are scheduled to attend these presentations. The topics cover AI and its impact on education as well as society, the benefits and pitfalls of social media, and the “footprint” we leave when using all forms of technology.
