Perseverance Pays Off for Top 10 Seniors

Perseverance Pays Off for Top 10 Seniors

The high school recently announced the top 10 ranked seniors at a ceremony held in the library, with proud parents in attendance. Saraf Faruk was ranked first and named Class of 2018 valedictorian, with Megan Zhang ranking second as salutatorian. Rounding out Deer Park’s list were Catherine Taipe (ranked third), Tamara Beauchamp (fourth), Alan Korsiak (fifth), Isabella Colacioppo (sixth), Danielle Tirado (seventh), William Buckley (eighth), Lauren Leon (ninth) and Sean Sanchez (10th).

“A student who is recognized in the top 10 at Deer Park High School has shown tremendous dedication and perseverance in their academic pursuits,” said Principal Charles Cobb. “This accomplishment is just the beginning for these extremely talented students, and I am proud to honor them.”'

Freshmen Focus on Careers at Deer Park’s Day of Discussion

Freshmen Focus on Careers at Deer Park’s Day of Discussion

The high school’s freshmen recently got a head start on career ideas as they participated in the school’s annual Career Day, meeting and talking about jobs and entrepreneurship with dozens of presenters from a variety of different careers including banking, health care, law enforcement, nursing, law, psychology, fiction writing, marketing and social work. These professionals included Deer Park alumni, members of the Deer Park Chamber of Commerce, local business owners and parents of current students.

Rob Pannell, a much-awarded legendary lacrosse player for Cornell University and the New York Lizards, kicked the event off with a well-received keynote speech.  

“Career Day 2017 was a great success,” said business teacher Jill Perry-Eising. “It is a large event to coordinate, and we couldn’t have run the event without the enthusiastic cooperation our local business community.”

Six Musicians Named to All-County Ensembles
Six outstanding high school student-musicians were chosen for All-County honors this year, and will participate in the annual New York State Council of Administrators of Music Education All-County concert on Nov. 17, held at Hauppauge High School. Students were selected for the band, chorus and orchestra ensembles by NYSCAME from a pool of the finest young musicians in Suffolk County, based on NYSSMA solo evaluations.

Junior Katherine Cho (clarinet) will perform with the All-County Band; junior Sara Felipe (soprano) and senior Nolan Maggio (tenor) will perform with the All-County Chorus; and junior Alexandra Doogan (double bass) and seniors Ginele Tanis (bassoon) and Megan Zhang (flute) will perform with the All-County Orchestra.

Developing Deer Park’s Digital Innovators

Developing Deer Park’s Digital Innovators 2

Ten Deer Park teachers –the high school’s Katelyn O’Brien; John Heeg, Matthew Oleaga, Jon Steigerwald and Scott Surdi from Robert Frost; Michael Capobianco, Thomas Fitzmaurice and Lori Palopali of JFK; and Dana Grafstein and Sue Steinman from May Moore – were recently chosen to participate in the district’s new Digital Innovator Program. The goal of the program is to align classroom instruction with technology, rather than vice versa.

“In the past, teachers would often ask how to use a piece of tech in the classroom, rather than focusing on what the instructional goal or outcome is, and then using the technology to get there,” explained Christopher Kauter, the district’s administrator of instructional technology, who developed the program. “It’s been a lot of reflection and sharing.”

The Digital Innovator Program uses the SAMR Model of ongoing monthly collegial workgroup sessions to allow sharing multilayered ideas for technology use with peers and administrators, focusing on areas such as digital classrooms and storytelling, maker education, coding and curriculum development, and establishing learning spaces. The teachers also develop an action plan and pilot programs and software.


Homecoming Highlights a Strong Community

The Deer Park community came out in force for the homecoming parade on Oct. 21, filling the streets from John F. Kennedy Intermediate School to the high school with a sea of proud maroon and white. Leading the way was grand marshal Tony Martinez, a managing partner of Texas Roadhouse.

After arriving at Al Centamore Football Field, the crowd was addressed by Martinez, principal Charles Cobb and Superintendent Eva J. Demyen. Also serving as a guest speaker was Babylon Town Clerk Carol Quirk, whose three sons are Deer Park alumni.

“The kids walking on this field are the most important people,” said Quirk. “I’m proud to be here representing the town, and homecoming shows that Deer Park is strong, not only today but tomorrow.”

The speakers soon ceded center stage to an array of exciting performances by the marching band, the step team, the high school and middle school kickline teams, and cheerleaders from the high school, middle school and PAL.

In the pre-game finale, Alan Korsiak and Kaylee Houlahan were crowned as homecoming king and queen, congratulated by the remaining members of the homecoming court: Daniela Cornelia, Kasey Dorney, Tara Hentze, Evan Mallon, Anthony Pascal and Josh Pismeny.

The varsity football Falcons came out strong in the homecoming game against Smithtown East, driving to a 14-0 lead after two quarters and holding on for a decisive 26-14 victory over the Bulls. Falcons quarterback Derrick Toledo passed for 124 yards and three touchdowns, Vincent Tavella rushed for 136 yards and a touchdown, and receiver Rayshion Bienaise caught four receptions for 120 yards and two touchdowns.

At halftime, the freshman class was chosen as the winner of the float competition for their excitingly aquatic “Nemo”-themed construction.
