The fourth annual TechDay was held at Wantagh High School on Jan. 7, during which more than 120 district students in grades 5-12 expanded their knowledge of game design and programming, and web and mobile development. The goal of the event was to introduce and expand the students’ knowledge of computer science, a field expected to grow rapidly during the next decade.
The district is proud to announce that the high school varsity football team won the Long Island Class III Championship game against East Islip with a score of 21-14.
During the Oct. 20 public meeting of the Board of Education, students, staff, and members of the PTA and supporting district organizations honored the Board trustees for their voluntary service to the district and community. The recognition was part of the New York State School Boards Association’s School Board Recognition Week, an annual celebration that serves as an opportunity to raise awareness and understanding about the essential role school board members have within a school district.
Prior to the Sept. 17 homecoming game, members of the 2016 varsity boys baseball team and their coaches received rings to mark the securing of the 2016 New York State Class A Championship on June 12, the district’s first state baseball championship since 1998. To mark their victory, the players and coaches led the homecoming parade as the grand marshal.
The excitement was palpable as teachers and support staff filed into the high school’s auditorium for Superintendent’s Conference Day on Aug. 31. In keeping with Wantagh tradition, members of the police department, government representatives and community organization members were also invited to attend the assembly that officially kicked off the 2016-2017 school year.
The district welcomed new faculty during the New Teacher Orientation Program on Aug. 25-30. Superintendent of Schools Maureen Goldberg and Assistant Superintendent for Instruction John McNamara introduced the staff to administrators, who discussed technology initiatives, policies and procedures, the district’s special education philosophy and literacy program, benefits and more. There was also time allotted to prepare classrooms and to take a bus tour of the district.
