A Night of Jazz for Senior Citizens


Mepham High School hosted its annual senior citizens prom on April 16. Held in the school cafeteria decorated in a roaring ’20s theme, the senior citizens prom is an evening affair hosted by members of Students Against Destructive Decisions as a way to interact with seniors in the Bellmore-Merrick community and give them a fun night of dancing, food and live music.

Mepham student-musicians, under the direction of music teachers Brian Neiderman and Mike Mitchell, provided live jazz music.

Student volunteers served delicious trays of pasta and salad, while others took to the microphone to sing classic jazz songs, such as “Somewhere Beyond the Sea,” “Fly with Me,” and “Summertime.”

The students in S.A.D.D. organized the annual event with the help of club advisors Dr. David Kommor and Jeanette Spargifiore.

Congratulations to Kristen and her teacher Andrew Franklin.

Science Teacher Honored by Harvard Club

Mepham science teacher Lorrilee Geraci was recently named a Distinguished Teacher of 2015 by the Harvard Club of Long Island.

An educator at Mepham for 22 years, Geraci teaches AP Psychology, Advanced Living Environment and Advanced Science Research. At the March meeting of the Board of Education, she was recognized with a citation.

The Harvard Club of Long Island is comprised of Long Island-based members of the Harvard University community, from professors to honorary degree holders to alumni. The Harvard Club fosters academic rigor through cultural and educational activities on Long Island throughout the year.
Geraci will be honored at a special brunch hosted by the organization on April 26.

French and Italian Honor Societies Give Back

Students at Mepham High School used Foreign Language Week as an opportunity to give back to the community.

The National French and Italian Honor Societies held a peanut butter and jelly lunch drive to prepare bagged lunches for the homeless of Long Island. Students gathered together and prepared 100 sandwiches and snacks, which were delivered to the Interfaith Nutrition Network in Hempstead and distributed to those in need.

The students were thrilled with the outcome and proud to have helped the hungry and homeless in this small way.
