    Island Park Robotics Teams Advance to Long Island Championships

    On Jan. 25, Lincoln Orens Middle School students competed in the FIRST Lego League Qualifiers at Huntington High School. Two teams, Axleotls and the I.P. Boxes of Juice, have been working toward their goal of reaching the Long Island Championships. At the culmination of the six-hour event, where students faced off on the robotics tables against other schools and presented research to judges, both groups were successful in obtaining invitations to the March 1 Championship round at Longwood High School.

    Of the 26 teams competing at this event, The Axleotls and Boxes of Juice were among only six that were selected to move on. In addition to advancing to the next level and excelling at building and programming robots, both teams received awards for their work on their Innovation Projects. Axleotls members Diego Arce, Angelina Deik, Riley Fallon, Rachel Guzman, Kirsten Lilly, Brianna Pucci, Nico Thertus, Benjamin Torres, Alexandra Hernandez and John Weber received the Project Research Award for their research in filtering clean water with the use of flocculators and French drains.

    The I.P. Boxes of Juice, comprised of Valentina Boncina, Cillian Cantwell, Billy Doyle, Katelyn Howell, Allyana Marie Lucas, Sophia Stevenson, Cameron Straub, Xavier Straub, Emily Trainor and Matilda Zarcone, earned the Project Innovative Solution Award for finding five methods to prevent devastation from flooding. They highlighted floating houses, “thirsty” sidewalks, houses on stilts, seawalls, and wetlands.

    With guidance from teachers and Robotics Club advisors Robert Ferrante and Michael Giardino, students pushed themselves to complete various tasks during meetings and lunch and recess periods. In the week leading up to the Qualifier, many students took time after school each day to stay and work on their projects.

    Congratulations, and best of luck to the students of the Axleotls and I.P. Boxes of Juice as they prepare for the Long Island Championships!

    Holiday Harmonies from Island Park Musicians

    The Island Park Public Schools’ Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and Lincoln Orens Middle School each held winter concerts in the month of December, featuring holiday songs and décor. Musicians at both schools provided festive ambiances for their audience members as they celebrated the season.

    At Hegarty, third- and fourth-grade chorus participants performed a number of holiday melodies under the direction of Music Department Coordinator Marie Bluebello-Sambolin, who accompanied them on the piano. The show, held on Dec. 12, also included dance choreography and special instrumentals. Among the tunes included in the program were “Happy Happy Holiday,” “Celebrating Hanukkah,” “On a Silent Night Long, Long Ago,” and “Be a Santa Claus.”

    Lincoln Orens Middle School’s fifth-and sixth-grade chorus, senior string orchestra, seventh- and eighth-grade chorus and concert band represented an assortment of holidays on Dec. 5. The groups performed tunes such as “Hanukkah Night,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Tue, Tue Ghanaian Folk Song,” “Last Christmas,” “It’s a Marshmallow World” and “All You Need is Love.” They continued their tradition of uniting for one culminating finale performance of, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” Special recognitions go to Ms. Sambolin for coordinating the event, as well as Orchestra Director Ryan Walter, Choral Director Kristen Papillo and Band Director Mario Blanco.
