200+ MHS Students Participate in Assembly to Honor the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Assembly at Mamaroneck High School featured 200+ MHS students with the theme, “Where is the Love?” singing, dancing and performing to celebrate the life and legacy of a man who lived his life serving others. A special piece dedicated to Dr. King was written and performed by the Multicultural Club members (a parody of Alexander Hamilton). As always, a special thank you to MHS Social Studies Teacher Shannon Turner-Porter for her hard work and dedication organizing this terrific event!
Additionally, Hommocks Middle School celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday with its annual assembly dedicated to his legacy. The program featured music performed by the jazz band, orchestra, and chorus, as well as a biographical video and student performances based on renowned Langston Hughes poems, such as “I Too Sing America.” The 7th grade chorus lead a school-wide singing of “This Little Light of Mine.”
Hmx Students Continued Inauguration Viewing Tradition, Witnessing Democracy/Peaceful Transfer of Power
Every four years since 2008, Hommocks Middle School students have discontinued all school activities on January 20 from 12:00-12:30 to watch the Oath of Office administered to the new President. Seventh graders learn about the Inauguration when they study the Constitution; every May, eighth graders visit the Capitol building in Washington, DC, where the ceremony is held.
February is Kindergarten Registration Month: Registration Taking Place at District's New Family Info Center
The Mamaroneck School District has launched its new Family Information Center, just in time for February’s Kindergarten Registration Month. About 400 families with students entering Kindergarten in fall, 2017 -- plus an anticipated 600 or so other families with children (at every grade level) entering Mamaroneck Public Schools for the first time next school year -- will visit the Center to submit their registration forms. Tell your neighbors & friends: All registration forms can be downloaded from www.mamkschools.org and must be returned in person to the Family Information Center located at Mamaroneck High School (using the main Boston Post Rd. entrance).
“We wanted to take some existing available space and turn it into a child-friendly area to welcome families to our district and make sure they feel comfortable as they are completing forms and gathering the necessary information for their students’ new educational experience,” Dr. Michael Kollmer, Director, Director of Research, Assessment & Accountability

'Coach Chap' Hits 1,000 Wins for Hockey, Baseball Combined, An Achievement Rarely Seen
Coach Mike Chiapparelli is the first coach from Section 1 to reach 1,000 wins while coaching two sports (in which his teams have won three combined State titles). “For Chiapparelli to accumulate that amount of wins with that kind of winning percentage, it’s off the charts…He's the guy who’s been the most successful multiple-sport coach. I don’t think there’s anyone who even approaches him. To be able to win state titles in two different sports is incredible." Pelham coach Mark Finegan
