Mepham Students Promote Literacy with a Buddy and a Book

Students from Mepham’s Senior Experience Program visited Birch School and Norman J. Levy Lakeside School in the Merrick School District on Nov. 21 to become “reading buddies” for first-grade students. 

Prior to the event, seniors in Marc Achtziger’s and Sarah Bender’s Senior Experience classes learned about the importance of promoting literacy in their community. When the big buddies met their little buddies, the pairs interviewed one another, created a Venn diagram of their similarities and differences, read the little buddy’s favorite book, and discussed the interesting parts of the story. Some pairs drew pictures of a character or scene from the stories they read. 

The idea behind the Reading Buddies program is to promote a lifelong love of reading. This was the first in what Mepham hopes will be a series of visits to the elementary schools. Students will meet periodically throughout the year to develop positive experiences about choosing, reading and discussing age-appropriate books.

This program is also aligned with the Senior Experience Program’s charitable focus: placing books in the hands of young children in Long Island’s communities.

Mepham Battles for a Good Cause

Mepham High School students came ready to battle in the sixth annual Battle of the Classes event at the Brookside School on Nov. 12. The night was full of spirit and generosity as the Mepham community came together to raise money for Autism Speaks, the selected charity for the fall Participation in Government senior service learning project.

The contest consisted of a variety of relay competitions, a volleyball game, dance competition and the intense pirate relay. In addition, social studies teacher Stu Stein kept the crowd entertained and enthused as the host.

The senior class was crowned champions of the evening, followed by the sophomores. The juniors took third place, while the freshmen placed fourth.

Seniors Kevin Burns, Yianni Hilas, Jaimie Kaefer and Sal Monello spoke about the work of the senior class with Autism Speaks this fall and why the cause is so important to them.

Ali Dyer, a representative from Autism Speaks, told the capacity crowd that Mepham High School is “one in a million,” as it is truly helping to change the world. The event generated more than $3,700 for Autism Speaks, which, combined with the efforts of the seniors thus far, brought their fundraising total to $6,770.
