HARBORFIELDS HIGH SCHOOL

WEEKLY NEWSLETTER

October 4, 2017

 

Following an exciting start to the year that included a lively spirit week and outstanding homecoming festivities during week 1 we have settled into our routine now at the high school.  Our seniors are busy getting early college applications into our guidance department, juniors busy prepping for the upcoming PSAT and our underclassmen working hard in the classroom to insure their future success.  It has been great to see the energy and enthusiasm our students and teachers bring to each and every classroom

 

Homecoming Update

Our students and our community took great pride in making fundraising over $1100.00 for childhood cancer a focus of spirit week and homecoming.  We are proud to announce that we raised which we donated to childhood cancer charities. A large portion was donated directly to Maggie’s Mission a foundation set up in memory of Maggie Schmidt. 

National Merit Commended Students:

The National Merit Scholarship Program has recognized its commended students and we are fortunate to have 9 students recognized.  These students have clearly demonstrated a dedication to academic excellence and we are extremely proud of them. Commended Students placed in the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who took the 2016 PSAT.  Please join me in congratulating Catherine Andreadis, Christopher Burney, Samuel Edelstein, Katelyn Haas, Justin Minerva, Rachel Scheff, Julia Spande, Quinn Theobald, Ryan Topolovec.

 

Honor Society Inductions  Congratulations to all of our students who were inducted into our Tri-M music honor society and our Gloria Vavasseur chapter of the National Honor Society.  Special thanks to our advisors -- Ms. Allison Scilla for Tri-M and Ms. Laura Pfaff for the National Honor Society -- for all their hard work in organizing the induction ceremonies.

Kicks For Cancer - Girls Varsity Soccer

This week marked the beginning of October and that means the girls soccer program will officially begin its annual Kicks for Cancer fundraising campaign. Over the last 6 years, the program has raised over

$ 40,000 that has been used to support the American Cancer Society as well as several cancer research and support organizations right here on Long Island.  This year, the  Kicks for Cancer campaign will honor the  memory of Mrs. Audrey Davis and Mr. Philip Hammer. Mrs. Davis, the mother of senior captain Julia, and Mr. Hammer, the father of recent graduate and 3 year varsity starter Katie, both, sadly,  lost their battle with cancer.  In honor of them and all people in the Harborfields community affected by cancer, our girls will host several fundraisers and  commit to raising as much money as possible in the month of October. The varsity Kicks for Cancer game is Thursday October 5th at 4:30 vs. Rocky Point.

WE DAY

On September 20th, members of our Global Justice Club and their advisor Michelle DaSilva attended WE day at Madison Square Garden.  They were treated to world-renowned speakers and A-list performers and tens of thousands of other young people to celebrate their contributions and kick-start another year of inspiration.
