Tenth-graders at High School East participated in Challenge Day, a full-day anti-bullying workshop in February. The Challenge Day program is designed to build compassion using social-emotional techniques.
Students and adults worked together in different trust building exercises throughout the day that help both parties generate a positive change using empathy and compassion. The goal of the Challenge Day program is to build community, promote acceptance and embrace positive peer support.
The Board of Education honored three High School East students and one High School West student who were recently named Regeneron Scholars in the 2018 Regeneron Science Talent Search, the country’s oldest high school competition in the math and sciences during their meeting on Jan. 23.
High School East seniors Sydney Bracht, Cindy Li and Shrey Thaker and High School West senior Sarah Adamo were among those presented with certificates of recognition by the board of education.
The two winners from the Smithtown VFW Voice of Democracy Essay Contest were also presented with certificates. High School West student Nicholas Camson placed first in the competition and High School West Dean Mattshull took third place. The Voice of Democracy competition provides high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors the opportunity to write and record a 3-5-minute broadcast script on a patriotic theme, competing for more than $2.3 million in college scholarships and incentives. State winners receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., and compete for $152,000 in scholarships.
Three High School East students and one High School West student are among the 46 Long Island seniors named Regeneron Scholars in the 2018 Regeneron Science Talent Search, the country’s oldest high school competition in the math and sciences. The top 300 science research students nationwide were chosen for this honor.
High School East seniors Sydney Bracht, Cindy Li and Shrey Thaker and High School West senior Sarah Adamo have been recognized for their science research projects.
Sydney’s project is “A Reverse Genetic Approach to Identify Novel Regulators of Cell Invasive Behavior.” Cindy’s research focuses on “The Role of Sts-1 and Sts-2 in ROS Response in Mononuclear Phagocytes,” while Shrey’s research was conducted on “The Role of miR-34a in Colorectal Cancer Racial Health Disparity.” Sarah’s research project is on “Acetylcholine and Nicotine Potentiate Currents in Cells Isolated from the Sea Anemone Nematostella vectensis.”
Each scholar receives a $2,000 prize, and individual schools get $2,000 for each of their recognized students. Forty finalists will be named on Jan. 23 and will compete on March 8-14 in Washington, D.C., for prizes totaling more than $1.8 million.
