Getting back into the swing of school
(Page 2 of 3)

Other clubs have been involved with the greater Hewlett-Woodmere community as well. Students in the World Language Club visited The Center for Adult Life Enrichment after school on Dec. 10. The students’ purpose in making this visit was to celebrate the upcoming holiday season with the senior citizens while promoting their love and appreciation for different languages. The afternoon consisted of singing holiday songs and playing rounds of Bingo in English, Spanish, French, and Italian. Both the students and senior citizens felt that the interaction between the two entities, the high school and center, was very nice. The school newspaper, The Spectrum, was published this week and it reported on relevant school, community, and worldly news. A large portion of the paper was devoted to discussing Superstorm Sandy and its implications on the school and town. In addition to describing the gas shortages and shattering effects on people’s lives, the newspaper explained the district’s decision to abridge the February vacation due to make up for the days lost due to Sandy. The district felt that it was a reasonable decision, but many students and teachers are very disappointed because they had already made their plans for the break. However, the bi-annual trip to the Galapagos Islands, organized through the high school, remains a go.

In other news: Three Hewlett seniors —Jeremy Appelbaum, William Gil and Allen Shin — took first place in the national Siemens competition in Math, Science, and Technology. The entire school is proud of the research team and all its hard work! December is overall an exciting time for seniors as they receive application decisions from colleges and consider where they will be in a year from now.
