Honoring Heroes

In observance of Memorial Day, Carle Place Middle/High School held its annual ceremony to honor four graduates who lost their lives in military service. Members of American Legion Post 1718 were on hand for the ceremony, which included the dedication of a new wreath alongside the plaque that currently hangs in the hallway to honor U.S. Army Corporal Howard Hominick (Class of ’67),  U.S. Marine Captain Walter “Roy” Schmidt (Class of ’63), U.S. Navy Ensign Paul Sempliciano (Class of ’65) and U.S. Army Specialist 4 John Thorp (Class of ’66).

Students lined the main lobby and saluted these men and the veterans on hand. Junior Carly Perruzza played Taps, accompanied by seventh grader Joseph Garcia on the snare drum, just prior to seventh grader Justin Colon laying the wreath. Veterans also had the opportunity to speak with students following the ceremony, including Carle Place High School senior Frank Mastrangelo, who built a special memorial in the front of the school to honor those who served in the military. Frank built the memorial for his Eagle Scout project last year.

Pledging To Be Kind

The Carle Place Middle School Builders Club recently conducted a Kindness Kampaign to encourage others to make kindness their mission in life, each and every day. The club designated May 15 as Kindness Day, as all staff and students wore yellow in support of the campaign and signed a pledge to be kind all of the time. 

Upon their arrival to school on Kindness Day, students were greeted in the main lobby by Builders Club members and were asked to take the kindness pledge to the backdrop of the high school chorus performing. Second period teachers were also given kindness cards to distribute to their students, ensuring that every Carle Place Middle/High School student received a card. Each kindness card contained a secret “mission,” or random act of kindness, for the recipient to decode and complete. 

The Kindness Kampaign was coordinated by teacher/adviser Tara Vasilakopoulos and turned out to be a great success that raised awareness about the importance of accepting and including others.



Student Changemaker Honored

Congratulations to Carle Place Middle/High School student Samantha Wagner, who was recently recognized for her community service efforts at the annual Nassau County Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance) ceremony. This award is presented to students in Nassau County who are civically responsible and promote tolerance. 

Samantha is described by her teachers and peers as kind, dedicated, driven, passionate, humble and versatile. She is active in various after-school activities such as Key Club, varsity volleyball, varsity bowling and varsity track, but she has truly made her mark in student government as the junior class secretary and as the Key Club public relations representative. Samantha has held leadership positions within the Key Club since 2017 and has volunteered at the local Boys and Girls Club as well as the INN soup kitchen. 

Additionally, Samantha has exercised technological creativity through Key Club by making detailed informational videos for various organizations. These videos were used an educational tool for the entire high school to promote fundraising and service learning for organizations such as the Amputee Coalition, Hagedorn Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Center, Smile Train and NYU Winthrop Hospital’s Breast Health Center. She was a key coordinator for Carle Place High School’s Battling for a Cause event in February, which raised $23,000 for the Long Island Tourette Association. 

Samantha is wise beyond her years, understands the importance of giving back to her community and is truly deserving of this honor.
