Seven Mamaroneck High School Athletes Have Committed to Play at D1 College Level
On National Signing Day, we recognized and celebrated the accomplishments of our seven Mamaroneck High School seniors who have committed to continue their athletic careers in college at the Division I level. In March, we’ll hold another follow-up recognition for all of our athletes committed to playing sports in college, including our D III athletes (some of whom have already committed and some of whom we expect will be recruited in the months to come). Congratulations to all of these students on their hard work and dedication to their sport.

Pen Pals Meet Up Across the Elementary Schools
Fifth graders from across the elementary schools who have been writing to each other as pen pals finally had the chance to meet up in cross-elementary school exchanges this month. The students are already looking forward to sending their next letters and meeting up again! A terrific opportunity for our students to establish relationships with their future Hommocks buddies.
"Community is the heart of the school district and further building community connectedness is key to the District's long-range plan," Superintendent Dr. Robert Shaps.
Students Study Long Island Sound Ecosystem & Enjoy Hands-On Exploration at Marine Education Center
Mamaroneck High School's freshmen Biology classes work with the Marine Education Center's naturalist Kyle Troy at Harbor Island to study the ecology of the Long Island Sound. Students have the chance to examine plankton under the microscope, check out the American Eel, view the Center's tanks full of animals from the Sound, and peruse the table display artifacts and literature. Students learn about the importance of the Long Island Sound not just to the fish and other animals that live in it, but to the community as a whole. Students have the opportunity to do some seining, where they get to catch some fish; the naturalist talks to them about why each species is important to the ecosystem. Wonderful to have this treasure right in our own backyard.
Hommocks Middle School Students Facilitate Math Nights at Elementary Schools
Our elementary schools held special Math Nights this month, inviting family members in to participate in math games that support students' development of number sense. Hommocks Middle School students helped facilitate the evenings, and a great time was had by all!
