  • Mahopac Students ‘Create the Change’ for Clean Drinking Water

    Because there are many people around the world who do not have access to clean drinking water, members of Mahopac High School’s Create the Change Club decided to do something about it. 

    “We discovered a charity called Charity: Water, which is a non-profit organization that provides clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries by building water wells,” said Create the Change Club President Tiko Kapanadze.

    During the holidays, the group sold crystal necklaces, lanyards, and fuzzy socks at the high school to help raise money for the charity. “And we sold carnations for Valentine's Day gifts,” to raise money as well, Kapanadze said.

    When members went to Stop and Shop in Somers to purchase flowers to sell to students and staff for Valentine’s Day, “the manager learned about our cause and very generously donated the flowers to the club,” said Kapanadze. All profits raised from the sales will be donated to Charity: Water.

  • Senator Honors Mahopac High School Gymnastics Team

    New York State Senator Terrence Murphy and Carmel Town Supervisor Ken Schmitt  honored Mahopac High School’s gymnastics team and Coach Vin Collins for winning the Section 1 team title recently. The pair presented award certificates and spoke of the hard work the girls had put in to become champions.

    “The commitment and hard work you put into your sport is something that will be important to you all your life,” said Murphy.

    Coach Collins praised the girls not only for their athletic skill but for their academic prowess. “The girls are in the running to be named scholar athletes,” Collins said, which means the team has a 90 or above average in academics.

    “This is a very hard-working group of girls,” Collins said. “And this was truly a team effort.”

    The gymnastics team includes Cassie Traina, Sarah Citarella, Annalee Hammel, Sydney Hughes, Callie Johanson, Kayley Mattos, Alexandra Porcelli, Julie Santoiemma, Natalie Austin, Raquel Nelson, Hailey Woods, Julia Israel, Fabiola Laska, Chloe Lee, and Jamison Castrataro. Johanson won the section 1 title, and she and Lee, Castrataro, Hughes and Traina earned spots on the state championship team, which will compete on March 4 in Cold Spring.

    Ron Montalto, Mahopac’s interim athletic director, praised both the team and Collins for their superior effort. “They did an outstanding job, especially considering the competition,” Montalto said. “And Coach Collins is a legend in gymnastics.”

  • Mahopac Schools Celebrate Thanksgiving by Giving

    Thanksgiving is about tradition, and nowhere is the tradition of giving more apparent than in the Mahopac School District. Its years-old custom of giving back via fundraisers and gift baskets celebrates community, as students, parents, teachers and staff go all out to help families in need.

    Mahopac Middle School provided Thanksgiving dinner to 33 area families in need, including turkey, stuffing, potatoes, rolls, cranberry sauce, pie, and “You name it,” said Lynne Mongon, who coordinated the giving at MMS. They also set up a “pantry” full of staples that recipients could shop from, including flour, sugar, oil, cereal, fruit, baby food, desserts, veggies, and crackers, among other things. The fire departments and local businesses donated turkeys, a local businessman donated 100 pounds of potatoes, and area stores donated gift cards. “It was a true team effort from the community,” said MMS Principal Vince DiGrandi.

    Fulmar Road’s annual food drive supports families in need in the school. Students and staff collected things like cranberry sauce, stuffing and other ingredients for Thanksgiving meals, in addition to staples such as paper towels and pasta.

    Austin Road collected donations and bought gift cards for families in need in its community, with each family receiving a grocery-store gift card for $125.

    And at Mahopac High School, boxes and bags of food poured in to help create an abundance of giving to share with those in need. More than 40 baskets were distributed to help families have a traditional Thanksgiving meal. This annual event was organized by high school social workers Kristel Halton, Jenn Stytzer, Davia Bugge and Valerie Trefny and included help from Mahopac’s school counselors, custodians, teachers, students, parents, clubs, and administrators.

    Said Kristel Halton, “Mahopac High School is committed to making community service a priority and promoting empathy and resiliency through acts of kindness. I feel very grateful to be part of a wonderful community.”

  • Mahopac Students Explore the Hudson

    Why contain science learning to a classroom when students can experience it firsthand outdoors? That’s what Mahopac High School students did this week during A Day in the Life of the Hudson River, where Chemistry and Living Environment classes explored the Hudson at the Steamboat Dock in Verplanck.

    MHS science teacher Bob Connick, who has been teaching for 40 years and will retire at the end of this year, said this trip has been a highlight for him and his students since the program was in its infancy.

    “You just can’t get this experience in a classroom,” Connick said. “The students are so involved!”

    The Mahopac students were among 4,500 studying the Hudson this week, from New York City to Albany. Sponsored by the Department of Environmental Conservation’s Hudson River Estuary Program and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, A Day in the Life of the Hudson boasts students from 98 schools.

    Activities include testing samples of the river’s pH, salinity, conductivity and water temperature as well as identifying fish and aquatic wildlife species. Students also studied the physical shoreline of the river. Participants from all 98 schools will enter and pool their information on the DEC’s website. 

    “It is wonderful to have this age group active in learning about and appreciating the Hudson,” said the DEC’s Heather Gierloff, who accompanied the Mahopac students.

    MHS science teachers Scott Rizzo and Tricia Johnson also accompanied students on the trip. “It’s a great experience, because students can apply what they studied in class in a hands-on way,” Johnson said.

    Sophomore Kiley Hoyt said she enjoyed the real-world approach to learning as well. “We were really able to look at fish up close and personal, and not just in a book,” she said.

    Connick said he knows his fellow MHS science teachers will carry on this tradition long after he retires. “The students are in great hands,” he said.

    Still, Rizzo said Connick will be sorely missed. “He is a teacher of teachers,” he said. “His infectious energy is amazing!”
