A Proud Milestone for Deer Park’s Class of 2017


The high school held its 54th commencement ceremony on June 23, with more than 300 students beaming with pride as they received their diplomas in front of faculty and their families. The ceremony began with a moving performance of the national anthem by senior Olivia Grizzle.

Salutatorian Alima Hossain and valedictorian Omaier Mohiuddin told their fellow classmates to embrace change and to look forward to their new journey.

“Today marks a milestone in all of our lives,” Hossain said. “This is a wonderful transition into adult life.”

"Change is hard, but it’s also good," Mohiuddin said. "This place shaped us into amazing human beings and the world is waiting for our arrival.”
Guest speaker Nicholas Assenza told the students that life is full of surprises.

“Life is about figuring out who you are and what makes you happy,” he said. “Failure is inevitable, but you can’t let it hold you back. Live with humility and never stop the pursuit of learning about everything that is important to you.” 

Before the diplomas were conferred, Principal Charles Cobb expressed his admiration for the Class of 2017.

“I could not be more proud of all that this class has accomplished,” said Cobb.


A Special Evening of Awards for Deer Park Seniors


The high school held its annual Senior Awards ceremony on June 8, filling the school’s auditorium with proud families eager to see high-achieving members of the Class of 2017 receiving department awards, schoolwide awards and scholarships.

After class treasurer Joseph Etersque led the Pledge of Allegiance, and fellow senior Jacie Matera sang the National Anthem, Principal Charles Cobb spoke to the graduating students and the presentation of awards began. Deer Park’s jazz ensemble, under the direction of Jerry Cannarozzo, provided a soothing backdrop of Chick Corea’s “Spain” during intermission.

“This event gives us an opportunity to recognize our students and all of their vast accomplishments, and showcases the many skills and talents of our outstanding student body,” said Cobb. “It is a special evening that all students and their families will remember fondly.”

Deer Park Trio Earn Medals at Special Olympics


Returning for the second consecutive year, Deer Park was represented by three students – Robert Frost Middle School eighth-grader Damian Capone, high school freshman Kerthana Omprakash and senior Emanual LaPorte – at the 2017 Special Olympics Long Island Spring Games North, held on May 20 at Bethpage High School. All three won medals for their determination and hard work.

“We are very proud of our students who worked so hard and trained many hours for their specific Olympic events,” said teacher Joyce Carmen.  

Guitars Join Orchestra, Choir and Band to Deliver Memorable Spring Concert


Superb sounds were in the air at the high school’s annual spring concert on May 24, as student-musicians gathered to showcase a year’s worth of hard work and practice in front of proud family and friends. Among the highlights was an impressive and novel appearance by the school’s massive 75-member guitar ensemble, directed by Scott Abrams.

“The guitar ensemble program provides our students with a tremendous opportunity to get back into a performing ensemble when they may not have been part of one in the past,” said Abrams. “Having a guitar ensemble program is rather unique on Long Island, and it is a program that I am extremely proud of.”

Other performing groups included the school’s symphonic orchestra, directed by Kathryn Attard; the women’s choir, directed by Catherine Lubrano; and the symphonic band, directed by Jerry Cannarozzo, which closed the evening with selections from the soundtrack to “The Lion King.” Compositions by alternative rock band Coldplay were also showcased, with the guitar ensemble performing “Viva la Vida” and the symphonic orchestra delivering a rendition of “Clocks.”

Military Moms Convene for Tea and Support


The high school held its fourth annual Military Moms Tea on May 12, providing military moms with a chance to network and meet with the mothers of seniors who are planning on joining the military upon graduation.

“They share their experiences and provide insight and support to the new moms,” said teacher Laurie Osbern.

The event was originally created by retired teacher Janet Werner as a way of bringing together and celebrating the mothers of Deer Park graduates who have served or are serving in the military.  Werner was in attendance, along with students, staff, district and building administrators, and 11 military mothers. George Tirado, a Deer Park alumnus currently serving in the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division in Afghanistan, was a special guest via video chat.

Life skills students in Patricia Skjoldahl’s class decorated the room prior to the event, and served refreshments as the participants took turns speaking about their children in the military.
