Eight students from Amityville Memorial High School got to experience the classroom from the other side, as they spent a day as teachers at Northwest Elementary School.

Split into teams of four, one group worked with a first-grade class and the other with a second-grade class. They were trained through Junior Achievement, a volunteer-delivered program to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in the global economy.

The young teachers led literacy and math activities through Junior Achievement’s curriculum that focused on communities, families and careers. Elementary students got to explore the business world by starting their own pretend company and learn about democracy by participating in a mock vote.

Karen Gross, the transition coordinator for the Amityville Union Free School District, said the high school students who took part in the program are interested in careers working with children. This opportunity provided them with needed organization and leadership skills while teaching them how to be prepared for the workplace such as dressing professionally. In a program that focused on citizenship, they demonstrated for Northwest students just how to be good citizens.

“This was a good experience,” added junior Annastassia Baines. “We set an example for the younger kids so they can be role models in the future.”

The program featured congratulatory remarks from Acting Principal Dr. Lois Etzel and Director of ENL and World Languages Mary Stephens, a candlelighting ceremony and an awards presentation.

Three science research students from Amityville Memorial High School have been selected for a prestigious summer internship at Northwell Health’s Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.

Nidia Mendoza, Ernesto Monzon and Harris Martinez Garcia will have the opportunity to work alongside doctors and scientists performing cutting-edge medical research. They had to complete a rigorous application process, which included submitting a resume and answering essay questions, while competing against undergraduate through doctoral-level college students for the internship.

“This is an amazing program and it can get me closer to my goal of working in the medical field,” Ernesto said. “We are very lucky to have been selected.”

The students will be eligible for a grant that can help offset their travel expenses. At the conclusion of their internship, they will present their research and that work can be entered into science competitions.

The district’s science research program is in its second year and led by teachers Deborah Charles and Alexis Charles.
