Thumbprint in History

Locust Valley Middle and High School students took turns carefully pressing their thumbs into various colors of paint and then precisely pressing that paint onto a canvas. The canvas contained a painting of a tree and the thumbprints represented the leaves. At the base of the tree, each of the students signed their own name.

The project was done in collaboration with Kay Weninger, President of Operation Democracy and included signatures of local veterans. The Peace Tree will be displayed in the International Student Art Exhibition in Sainte Mère Église, France. Students in France will add their thumbprints and signatures to the tree and send one they’ve been working on back to Locust Valley.  

Art teachers Donna Chaplin, Tom Camilleri, Melanie Mooney and Nirel Rieff had their middle school and high school art students participate. Weninger said that the project is intended to engage students in the topic of history and reinforce the importance of friendships. “We rekindle the friendships between the two communities through this tree of life.”

LVCSD Comes Together for a Cure

Cancer Awareness Club

Locust Valley Community members joined together to bring awareness to cancer care and raise money to help find a cure in the high school gymnasium on the evening of May 12. The annual Locust Valley High School Relay for Life was the result of the hard work of the Cancer Awareness Club and raised nearly $18,000.

Following the opening ceremonies, cancer survivors and caregivers walked laps to be recognized for their strength. Students performed piano pieces, sang and played the guitar as part of the evening’s entertainment.  Several participants took part in the haircutting ceremony, by having a friend or family member cut off eight inches of their hair to donate to the creation of wigs for cancer patients. 

A luminaria ceremony typically includes lighting candles, which are marked with the names of cancer victims. These luminarias are lit after dark to bring light to a dark subject.  Since this year’s Relay for Life was held indoors, candles were not lit, and instead bags with honorees’ names and a light were placed around the indoor track.

Cancer Awareness Club Advisor Cory Haldas, said that that Relay for Life is an important event that garners support throughout the district each year. "Our community came together around the common cause of creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays."  

Board of Education President Erika Bruno and Vice President Keri Carlstrom joined students to help register attendees for the event. High school administrators attended to show their support for the Cancer Awareness Club, the survivors and the cause.

Donations can be made on the district’s Relay for Life website at www.relayforlife.org/locustvalleyny until August.

Locust Valley High School Lacrosse Day was filled with competitive lacrosse from the Oak Neck Youth program through the varsity teams.  Games started early on April 22 and continued throughout the day. In addition to cheering on their favorite local athletes, attendees had the opportunity to purchase lacrosse apparel from a tent sponsored by the NY Lizards and there were also some fun giveaways. Refreshments were available from Athletic Council.

With support from parents and the community, the day was a success and provided fun for everyone.

Spotlight on Students

High school students placed themselves in the spotlight as they highlighted their talents during the school’s annual Spotlight Night.  The event is an opportunity for writers, musicians and artists to take the stage and perform for their friends and family in a casual environment.

Original stories and poems were performed along with covers of musical pieces with various instruments and vocals. The evening is an outlet for creativity and artistry.

HS Spring Monologue Show Rescheduled

The high school's Spring Monologue Show originally scheduled for April 26 has been rescheduled for Thursday, May 25, 2017, at 7 p.m. Admission is free.

Fashionable Fundraiser

The Class of 2017 showed off the latest fashions during the annual senior fashion show as they strutted down the red carpet in style. From casual styles to formal wear, the senior models made all the fashions look great.

Students not only walked the red carpet but also shared the responsibilities of serving as masters of ceremonies, as well as working the lighting and music.  

The success of this event is due to the collaborative efforts of parents, faculty, students and the stores that donate the clothing that is worn in the show. Funds raised help to offset the cost of the senior prom.  

Check out the slideshow to see a sampling of some of the models and fashions.
