Amityville student-artists are recognized

Several artists from the Amityville Union Free School District have had their work selected for regional and state exhibits.

Twenty-one student-artists had their work displayed at the Town of Babylon’s Hispanic Heritage Festival and Art Exhibition on Oct. 15.
Representing the district from Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School were fourth-graders Yadira Aragon-Gonzalez, Tiffany Asbell, Jesus Barrios, April Kenny, Julissa McGhee, Sasha Urias and Camryn Williams; fifth-graders Robert Chester, Khaleil Pryce, Martin Siri, Jimmie Stewart and Zaid Headley; and sixth-graders Kiana Grant, Jose Hernandez, Daviana Lucas, Amaya Nelson and Angel Dilone Rodriguez. From Edmund W. Miles Middle School, ninth-graders Astrid Dixon, Marco Iorio, Arlene Pena Jimenez and Alliyah Prince had their work displayed.
The students completed their projects under the direction of art teachers Susan Zaratin and Nicole Scoca. The district congratulates the students and their teachers for their participation in the regional exhibit.

A pair of students from Park Avenue will have their artwork on display when school officials from across the state gather for the New York State School Boards Association conference. Sixth-graders Karlie Meyerrose and Lauren Schilling will have their work included in a statewide student art exhibit during the conference, which runs from Oct. 27-29 in Buffalo.

The exhibit, which is co-sponsored by NYSSBA and the New York State Art Teachers Association, highlights achievement in the visual arts and demonstrates a high level of artistic ability by the selected students.

“We congratulate all the students, their families, and their art teachers on these wonderful achievements,” said Dr. Frances Fernandez, the district’s fine arts director.

Middle school hosts Hispanic Heritage Fair


Seventh-graders at Edmund W. Miles Middle School in the Amityville Union Free School District have recently been learning about the world, specifically Latin America.

The school hosted a Hispanic Heritage Fair in the library on Oct. 13 and 14, organized by librarian Lynn Cesiro. It is an annual event to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. Working in groups, the students rotated through three stations to learn about these nations in North America, South America and Europe. Spanish music played in the background as students collaborated.

At the first station, the seventh-graders learned about the capitals. Next, they had to identify the flags of 17 Spanish-speaking countries, which were hung around the library. The final station had students finding these nations on maps and globes. During lunch periods, children were invited in to participate in Makerspace activities, where they could color Mexican sugar skulls and create piñatas.

Middle School Welcomes Seventh Graders


Students in Amityville’s class of 2022 began their secondary journey on Aug. 25 as they gathered at Edmund W. Miles Middle School for seventh-grade orientation.

The school will welcome approximately 220 seventh graders this September. They received an introduction to the place where they will spend the next three years of their lives.

Administrators spoke to the students and their parents about the expectations of middle school. They reviewed topics such as the course offerings, grading system, dress code, electronics policy and lunchtime procedure. Students also learned about the sports and after-school activities that are available, including a new robotics club.

Principal Edward Plaia held a raffle, picking tickets and awarding 10 incoming students with black and red canvas bags filled with goodies such as an Amityville T-shirt, a novel and school supplies. All students took home a binder and a marble notebook.

Before leaving, the seventh graders received their schedules for the 2016-17 school year, and were able to tour the school to find the location of their classes.

Mr. Plaia said that orientation is designed to ease anxiety for the students as they transition to a new school. “It was great to see the excitement on the faces of our incoming seventh graders,” he said. “I welcome them to the school and wish them much success.”
