    A message from the Earth Science students;  Today is a very special day on planet earth.  It is perihelion, the day that we are closest to the sun in our annual orbit.  Among other things, that means that we are orbiting the sun faster today than any other day of the year.  If you are wondering how it can be winter when we are closest to the sun, ask an earth science student.  Merry Perihelion to all!

  • 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!”

    “It was amazing. We learned about advancements in technology in artificial intelligence, heard speeches from scientists from all over the world, and learned about forensic science from a leader in the FBI.”

    The conference presenters included Nobel Prize- and National Medal of Science-winning scientists, leaders in the IT field, and pioneers in medicine.

  • Mahopac High School Student Named Heart of a Giant Finalist

    Commitment. Teamwork. Will. Character. Dedication. These are the character traits needed for the Heart of a Giant award—qualities Mahopac High School senior Charlie Burt has in spades. Burt was nominated for the award, sponsored by the Hospital for Special Surgery and the New York Giants, because of his hard work, dedication and teamwork both on the field and off.

    “Charlie inspires me as a coach,” said MHS Head Football Coach Mark Langella. “He has overcome so many obstacles in his life, but he never let it interfere with his success.”

    Burt, who was born without his left hand, said that he never let this get in his way. “My father had a football in my hand since I was four,” he said, “and I’ve always worked hard and loved the game.”

    In addition to his hard work on the field and in the classroom, Burt, who plans to study chemical engineering and business in college, also finds time to do volunteer work. Aside from volunteering for Relay for Life, he organizes a baseball game each year, along with his mother, for special-needs children. “We always end with a barbecue afterward. It’s a great experience, and it feels good to give back,” he said.

    As one of six finalists for the Heart of the Giant award, Burt has already earned a $1,500 equipment grant for his team. The grand-prize winner will receive an additional $3,500 equipment grant for his school and a trophy presented during the New York Giants home game on December 18.
