    The Mepham High School varsity football team advanced to 5-0 this season with a homecoming victory over New Hyde Park Memorial High School on Oct. 6.

    Head coach Anthony Cracco led the team to a 35-7 win, and the crowd delivered tremendous energy during the homecoming game.
    “We have a terrific group of young men working toward a common goal,” said Cracco. “They have made many sacrifices to improve as a team and achieve a common goal.”

    Ahead of the game, the Mepham community enjoyed a festival and bonfire.

    At halftime, the cheerleading squad and Pirette kickliners performed at the midfield line. Tight end James Hatcliffe and Pirette Jordana Bove were crowned homecoming king and queen, respectively. 

    District administrators, Mepham teachers, alumni and Legislator Steve Rhoads were in attendance during the celebration and game.

    “Pirate pride was at an all-time high at Mepham’s 80th anniversary,” said Principal Eric Gomez. “It’s always remarkable to see the community gather in a sea of maroon to cheer on our students and athletes. We appreciate all of the efforts that helped in making the evening a true victory.”

    Mepham’s Skull & Bones Raises Money for Laughter Saves Lives

    Mepham High School's Skull and Bones Drama Club hosted its annual “A Night on Broadway” charity fundraiser revue on Oct. 13 to benefit Laughter Saves Lives Foundation. The charity was created by Mepham parent and fireman John Larocchia after losing 19 of his firehouse brothers, including his best friend, during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

    The Laughter Saves Lives Comedy Tour became Larocchia’s way of honoring the memories of those who selflessly gave their lives that day to protect and save others. It is his way to “never forget” while also recognizing the local fire, police, EMS and military personnel in the communities the tour group visits.
      
    A small portion of the proceeds from each show goes to the foundation which endeavors to support a variety of firefighter- and police-based charities as well as select individuals and families who have are in serious need of assistance.
     
    Since the start of the summer, students selected songs from popular Broadway productions, working together and in small groups to learn harmonies, create and teach choreography, and stage a full-scale production. Some of the evening's fare included "Opening Up" from “Waitress,” “Suddenly Seymour” from “Little Shop of Horrors,” “Chiquitita” from “Mamma Mia!” and “What I've Been Looking For” from “High School Musical.”  

    Directed by senior co-presidents Olivia Larocchia and Michael Scalisi, the students managed to raise a total of $1,146.85 for LSL through ticket sales and donations.

    “The most poignant moment of the evening came during the finale when the students offered a message of positivity and hope, singing ‘You Will Be Found’ from the 2017 Tony winner for best musical ‘Dear Evan Hansen,’” said Skull and Bones adviser Edward Grosskreuz. “The students stunned the audience when, at the close of the song, they reached down to the stage floor and picked up large posters that bore the names of recent tragic events at home and abroad. The students were inspired by the meaning behind the revue and by Mr. Larocchia's example.”

    Several students in the CHSD were recently named All-State and All-State Alternates by the New York State School Music Association.

    They will travel to Rochester, New York to participate in the four-day NYSSMA All-State Music Festival that begins on Nov. 30.

    All-State designees include Mepham High School’s Adriana Guarascio (All-State Symphonic OrchestraCalhoun High School’s Julia Bremer (All-State Mixed Choir), Maria Fazio (All-State Mixed Choir), Doug Gallo (All-State Vocal Alternate) and Ben Shaposhniko (All-State Symphonic Orchestra and All-State Jazz Ensemble Alternate) and Kennedy High School’s Samantha Crichton (All-State Treble Choir), John Duroseau (All-State Mixed Choir) and Kristina Miller (All-State Treble Choir).

    “In addition to making numerous musical and vocal contributions to their respective high school communities, many of these students also study and perform privately, chasing competitive personal goals and realizing prestigious performance opportunities,” said Cheryl Fontana, director of fine and performing arts and adult education.

    Each year in late August, young musicians throughout the state receive the exciting notification that they have been selected to participate in the festival. The All-State selection process begins during the previous school year. To be considered for All-State, students must first be recommended by their music director and perform a Level 6 audition piece at the spring NYSSMA festival receiving a score of 98 or higher.

     “This is an opportunity for them to tell us what they’re proud of about their school and it’s a portion of our monthly board meetings that I look forward greatly,” said John DeTommaso, superintendent of schools.

    The CHSD opened yet another successful first school year on Sept. 5.

    Administrators and teachers at both Grand Avenue and Merrick Avenue middle schools welcomed eager seventh-graders; they guided the fresh faces through the halls, assisted with locker routines and helped read class schedules.

    Prior to the first day, Grand Avenue Principal Carlo Conte said teachers were in the building for meetings and classroom preparation.

    “Between the thought of a new year and all of the building updates – including a new library, there is a feeling of electricity that seems to be permeating the air,” he added.

    At John F. Kennedy, Sanford H. Calhoun and Wellington C. Mepham high schools, teachers and staff welcomed back upperclassmen, as well as ensured a smooth transition for freshmen students.

    “We had our ninth-grade orientation last week and it was great to see our Class of 2021,” said Calhoun Principal Nicole Hollings. Students rotated among five stations around the building, acclimating themselves to the building protocols.”

    At Mepham, new Principal Eric Gomez said incoming freshmen “learned more about Mepham, our expectations and toured the building.”
