Mamaroneck Kindergarten Teacher Kristie Almeyda Recognized as Dual Language Teacher of the Month
Kindergarten Dual Language Teacher Kristie Almeyda -- who along with Mindy Friedman and Juliana Sage helped support the start of our Dos Caminos/Dual Language program (now in its ninth year) in Mamaroneck Schools -- has been named Dual Language Teacher of the Month.
I know what an absolute gift Dual-Language is not only for students’ social-emotional development, but for their physical brains."
Hommocks Principal Dr. Sackey and Guidance Counselors Speak to Rising 6th Graders
Hommocks Principal Dr. Al Sackey has been making the rounds to elementary schools and on Zoom with full-remote students, joining guidance counselors as they speak to 5th graders about what they can expect and look forward to in middle school this September. Preparing students for the transition between schools in our system (from elementary to middle school and from middle to high school) is a priority each spring.
Mamaroneck Among Few Districts that Continued to Make Music Throughout Pandemic
For the first time in 15 months, the Hommocks Middle School Jazz Band came together to perform live in-person for the Mamaroneck Board of Education and community at the May 4th BOE meeting. Mamaroneck is only one of a handful of districts that continued to make music all throughout the pandemic. Take a glimpse of the jazz band's performance HERE.
Taking Advantage of the Great Outdoors More Than Ever Before: New Ways Will Stay Beyond Pandemic
Some of the new outdoor routines and traditions formed from the need to have students outside due to capacity within schools are sure to stick beyond the pandemic. Reading and writing outdoors and eating lunch with friends at any one of the 50 new picnic tables set up at our schools is now commonplace. We have had some glorious spring weather, and it seems students this spring more than ever have enjoyed the great outdoors.
Students Learn Valuable Skills Through Gardening
Our spring outdoor gardens offer opportunities to teach life skills such as gardening and cooking, provide students with a real-time look at how food is grown, and build enthusiasm for eating fresh fruits and vegetables. Our beautiful gardens also provide important connections for students to their school.
Hommocks Middle school family and consumer science students have worked in the garden this month preparing the beds for planting and creating a new weed barrier for the pathways by layering newspaper, cardboard and a top layer of wood chips donated from the Town of Mamaroneck. Students ask everyday “are we going to the garden” - it’s a welcome break from being on computer screens so much of the day!
Two MHS Students Win National Merit Scholarships
Mamaroneck High School's Abby Tucker has been named a 2021 National Merit Scholarship winner, and Greg Gold is the recipient of a College-Sponsored (Vanderbilt University) Merit Scholarship award. The College Board has announced that these talented students were selected from about 1.6 million students nationwide, having fulfilled several requirements that included a detailed scholarship application as well as a record of very high academic performance. Congratulations Abby and Greg!
Spring Athletics Highlights: MHS Breaks Record in Track for Mile, Unified Basketball Begins
TRACK NEWS: Earlier this month, sophomore Matt Doherty broke the 1600 Mamaroneck High School record with a 4:19.21 mile at the Loucks games and took 1st Place. Plus, Matt, Gent Malushaga, Jason Markopoulos & Sam Young came home w/the Gold in the DMR Distance Medley Relay. Their time (10:34.40) was best run in NY this spring. Then, at the Rasbeck Relays at Irvington High School, Doherty, Zobel, Malushaga, and Markopoulos took 1st Place again within a time of 10:30.5, bringing home both the meet record and a new MHS school record, as well as improving on their NY #1 time this season.
UNIFIED BASKETBALL: Unified sports teams are composed of students with disabilities playing alongside regular education students on the same team. The athletes train together, work on staying healthy, and compete against other schools. Most of all, their goal is to have fun. Everybody is looking forward to their 4-game season.
