  • Senior Citizens Dance to a Happy Tune at Prom

     

    About 200 seniors citizens were dressed to the nines and ready to party at the 16th annual Senior Citizen Prom, held at Mahopac High School on November 19. Hosted by the Student Athletic Council, the event bridged any gap between teens and local seniors in the community.

     

    “The prom went really well,” said Adam Fetzer, Student Athletic Council co-advisor. “The students of the athletic council had a great time getting an opportunity to interact with the seniors.”

     

    The students set up, cleaned up, danced and deejayed for the event, according to Fetzer.

     

    “We had a great response from all who attended. It’s very nice to be able to give back to the community, especially during the holiday season.”

     

    “This event is so important because it provides our high school students with the opportunity to demonstrate to our community their wonderful nature and leadership,” said Mahopac High School Principal Matthew Lawrence. “I am very proud of our students for their participation in this event!”

  • High School Students Make Learning Fun at Austin Road

    American systems of government were never rendered more exciting than when Mahopac High School students visited Austin Road third graders recently, bringing lessons they designed themselves for the younger students to view on their Chromebook laptop computers.

    “I think it is a great idea to have our students serve as role models,” said Mahopac High School social studies teacher Michael Hunt, who in prior years has taught American History lessons to Austin Road students himself. “The Mahopac district commitment to technology really allows us to bring this all together.”

    Each high school student visitor prepared a lesson on Google Slides for the third graders, complete with photos, songs and vibrant content.

    “This really is a unique opportunity for our third graders to learn from the high school students,” said Austin Road Principal Jim Gardineer. “It is a very special event for us.”

    The high school students agreed. “I think this is a good way for kids to learn—especially with the songs and graphics,” said Mahopac High School junior Sam Colatruglio.

    Senior Jillian Sedran echoed that sentiment. “This is going to help the children be better prepared for the future and will help them get ready for high school.”

    The Austin Road students will continue to keep in touch with their high school visitors through the use of technology. “The third graders will send the high school students thank you notes through Google docs, so they will be like virtual pen pals,” said third grade teacher Marisa Horvath. They can also use Google Hangout to message each other about the lessons.

    The third grade teachers were impressed with the high schoolers’ teaching abilities. Said third grade teacher Kerri Bilyeu, “Some of the high school students teaching today used to be in our third grade class!”
