The Carle Place High School Key Club and Student Organization are hosting Battle of the Classes at Carle Place Middle/High School on Friday, March 1 beginning at 6:30 p.m. 

Each year, students “battle” for a special cause during Battle of the Classes. This year’s charity was selected based on sophomore Victoria Argenzio’s work with the Long Island Tourette Association. Victoria’s work is inspired by her brother, Stephen Argenenzio (Class of 2018) and his struggle with Tourette syndrome.  

On Feb. 1, Carle Place Middle/High School hosted a special assembly to raise awareness about this year’s event. Jane Zwilling, co-chair of the Long Island chapter of the Tourette Association of America (TAA) and co-director of the Long Island Center for Tourette and Associated Disorders, spoke at the assembly. 

It is both the Key Club’s and Student Organization’s hope that this event will raise awareness for children with Tourette syndrome, eliminate bullying and erase misconceptions about Tourette, while also raising funding for this cause.

Carle Place High School junior and Key Club President Lauren Basso is pictured here volunteering as a member of the Long Island Tourette Association’s support group.  Lauren and Samantha Wagner were instrumental in creating the informational video about Tourette syndrome and this year’s Battle of the Classes.
