Principal's Corner - by Timothy Russo


Re: Underclass Yearbook Pictures - As you probably know, the HS switched back to Lifetouch Photo Studios this year and there have been some changes as a result.  Please bear with us while the company adjusts to the needs of our community.  With that said, we have arranged for the following:

  • Photo proof sheets were mailed home this week for all students who photographed on the original 10/17 date, but did not order photos.  you should receive them during the week of 11/21.
  • We have added a second retake day on 12/5 to accommodate any students that need to retake after all proof sheets are received.
  • If you placed an order but haven't yet received your portrait package from the original photo day, please call Lifetouch Studios at 631-861-2555.
  • Package information & order forms are available in the main office.  See Ms. Williams in Dr. Goldstein’s office if you have any questions.

     It is hard to believe that our 1st quarter is complete already and we are entering our Thanksgiving Recess. We are putting the finishing touches on an incredible fall athletic season and we are beginning to look ahead to our winter concerts and theater productions, as well as our winter sports season. 

     Last week it was my distinct pleasure and an honor to join Dr. Manning and Dr. Ianni in Washington D.C. to accept the Blue Ribbon Award on behalf of our high school community.  This is an outstanding achievement for our entire HF Family and one we should be very proud of

     Harborfields High School was proud to host our annual Safe Halloween program for the youth in our community in late October.  This event would not have been possible without the coordination of our Interact Club, led by Ms. Lorraine Mantello, with contributions from several student clubs and organizations as well as local sponsors.  Please join me in thanking the following organizations for their sponsorship of this community event:   PTSA, COSTCO, Van Cott Nursery, CVS, Dairy Mart, Greenway Hardware, Decker Nursery, Greenway Farms and Value Drugs.

     I am also pleased to share that over sixty students attended our annual Natural Helpers retreat in Shelter Island.  It is remarkable to talk to those students and staff who attended and hear about the powerful learning experiences and conversations that take place at this event.  I am so thankful to our faculty and staff who volunteered to attend this three day retreat for our students. 

     It was a pleasure to attend the Girl Scout Silver Award Ceremony on Monday, November 14th.  HF students Natalia Rasulo, Amanda Muro, Lillian Cordes, Melisa Roche, Jessica Cantatore, Kiersten Bent, and Ella Lardizzione were recognized by the Huntington Area Silver Award committee.  The Silver Award is the highest recognition that a Cadet Girl Scout can earn.

     Congratulations to Ms. Jeanie Ritter and the NAHS on the outstanding exhibit they put together last week.  Our high school lobby looked amazing, adorned with the artwork of our exceptional students. 

     With the fall athletic season drawing to a close, we are fortunate to have had some athletes and teams move forward into the fall playoffs and even individual athletes advance to the NY State Championships.  Last weekend Matthew Katz and Jimmy DeSantis  represented HF in the NY State Cross Country Championships and this coming weekend, Rachel Kuenzler and Hannah Spencer will compete in the NY State Girls Swimming Championships! Way to go Tornadoes!

RUMORS: The members of our Harborfields Theater Company put on two amazing performances for our community last week.  We are so proud of the cast and crew led by HTCo advisor, Ms. Kristen Gavin.  We are looking forward to Playfest in January!

Students of the Month: I had the pleasure of presenting our September Students of the Month recently.  Please join me in congratulating the following students were selected by their teachers for their positive contributions to their classes: Ryan Topolovec, Galine Thelisma, Grace Bianco, Nina Bennardo, Michael Greaves, Christina Kohl, Isabella Avanzi, Ariana Domencetti, Amanda McDonald, Nelson Hernandez and teacher Anna Cervini.

     As previously mentioned, Hannah Bartfield, a senior musician had qualified for the NAfME All National Honor Band. The event itself actually took place last weekend and Hannah once again established herself as one of the top musicians at this prestigious event. Her audition landed her the top trumpet spot in the entire band--First Chair, First Trumpet.  The music department is extremely proud of Hannah and we know that you join us in congratulating her.

 

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, many of our students and faculty members were involved with distributing meals to local families in need.  The Environmental Club, under the direction of Mr. Flynn as well as our HACO students with Ms. Harmon and Maggie Boba, distributed much needed food to members of our community. 

Congratulations to Katelyn Maher who was featured this past week in Newsday’s “WAY TO GO” section.  Katelyn designed a t-shirt that has been on sale at the Bronx Zoo.

Kicks for Cancer:  The Harborfields Girls Soccer program’s “Audrey Davis Memorial Kicks for Cancer” fundraiser has come to a close and we are proud to share that a total of $8,721.23 was raised and will be directed to several cancer organizations to help with research and to help support individuals and families affected by all forms of cancer.  In a message to the community, Coach Scott Wallace stated, “On behalf of all the players on the varsity, JV, and OMS soccer teams, I would like to thank each and every one of you who bought raffle tickets, donated raffle prizes, purchased goodies at our bake sales or bought pretzels from the boys soccer team, came to our ‘Pink” games, and supported our cause this fall. We appreciate every bit of it.”  Way to go everyone!

Reminder for Parents:  1st marking period report cards have been posted to the parent portal.  If you have not done so already, please be sure to review your child’s report card with them.  As always, if you have any questions regarding your child’s academic progress, please be sure to contact the teacher or your child’s guidance counselor.
