Challenger Soccer Game

The Junior-Senior High School gymnasium was filled with an abundance of support from student peers, faculty, parents and community members, as students from Skills and Achievement classes participated in an indoor Challenger soccer game against Carle Place.

Members of the school’s athletic teams, including the cheerleading team, football team and track team, also came out and cheered the teams on while they played.

It was an extremely positive experience for both teams, and the game ended in a tied score of 12-12.

The Junior-Senior High School continues to advise student experience with the school’s ongoing Student Cabinet. 

In its second year, the group has been active and accomplished much success in its first year, including the creation of a survey that was administered in last December to all students. The results were analyzed by the members of Student Cabinet and by teachers later in the year.

Open to all students in grades 7-12, the group meets twice a month. The goal is to receive student input on a variety of school-related issues and give them the opportunity to discuss what they believe is important.

Topics that have been discussed so far this year include emergency drills, ideas for new extracurricular activities and family engagement events, air conditioning in classrooms and the overall "vibe" in the building among students.

Elissa, Lucianna, and Sandra were recognized for their academic and extra-curricular achievements at the Junior-Senior High School. Along with their families, the students visited the Mets clubhouse and press conference room, met Mets veteran Edgardo Alfonzo, and received memorabilia before the gala dinner in their honor.

Additionally, the Mets will be covering Elissa’s three-credit tuition fee for her St. John’s University Spanish Conversation III college credit course, offered through East Rockaway’s AP Spanish class. The team will also cover both of Lucianna’s and Sandra’s three-credit tuition fee for their Adelphi University Spanish I college credit course, offered through East Rockaway’s Spanish 4 Honors class.
