  • Mahopac Gender Equality Club Honors Outstanding Women in Education

    In honor of Women’s History Month, Mahopac High School’s Gender Equality Club recognized 14 district personnel as Outstanding Women in Education at an event held in the school recently.


    Student club leaders Stephany Solis, Olivia Meyer, Kassie McGough, and Veronica Polifemo presented the awards. “Our high school PTO also helped to sponsor this event through a grant,” said club coordinator and health teacher Val Nierman, who also serves as the district’s health coordinator.  


    “These women have had a profound impact on the lives of our members as well as our own and have given us all memorable and positive experiences,” said Solis. “Within their careers they've taken exemplary initiative to extend their impact further than what the role of being an educator allots for them. All the honorees share qualities of strength, big personalities, and empathy and have all made a great effort to connect with us at a personal level. This is why members of our club have chosen to nominate these women.”


    The district staff who were honored are: Lynn Gilchrist, Karen Haitoff, Kerry Price, Elizabeth McKeon, Carla Mallen, Tricia Fuller-Johnson, Margaret Fox, Stacey Woodrow, Courtney Aponte, Carol Eberly, Anne Tuite, Beth Dore, Beth Ferrigno, and Kathy Uszak.

  • Mahopac Schools Roll Out Technology Initiative

    The Mahopac Central School District rolled out its initiative to provide students in grades five through twelve with their own Chromebook laptops this week. The initiative is in keeping with Mahopac’s commitment to provide students with cutting-edge technology to make them 21st century leaders. Students in the lower grades will share one Chromebook for every two students.


    Training sessions were held recently for students, who were excited about using the laptops. John Resanovich, senior facilitator for instructional technology at Southern Westchester BOCES, was one of the experts on hand to help students in the middle school. His demonstration of how they could move apps and use Google Drive for sharing documents was met by cries of  “wow” and “awesome” by students, who were fascinated with the technology.


    The Chromebooks allow students to easily check homework assignments, film videos for projects, and share information with each other.


    The district also hosted an informational evening for parents, to familiarize them with the technology.


    “This initiative will really enable our students to be college and career ready,” said Mahopac Superintendent Anthony DiCarlo. “There has been a lot of time and energy put into professional development and technology training, and we are very fortunate to have the community’s support.”
