Chosen to Attend Students Inside Albany Program

Gwen Dominguez and Yana Patel from Port Chester High School have been chosen to attend this year’s Students Inside Albany program sponsored by the League of Women Voters of New York State Education Foundation Inc.

This 23rd annual Students Inside Albany program will take place from May 21-24, and will bring 60 students from across the state to Albany to get first-hand education about their state government. The program is designed to increase high school students’ awareness of their responsibility in representative government and provide information about the tools necessary for meeting that responsibility.

While at the conference, students will join their peers in a hands-on learning experience about how state government works. They will participate in a series of interactive lectures on topics such as the state budget process, the role of lobbyists in the legislative process, citizens’ rights to access government information, the role of media in politics and the move to reform state government. The highlight for most students is the opportunity to shadow their senators and their assembly member for an afternoon attending session on the Chamber floors.

Congratulations to Gwen and Yana as they prepare for this amazing opportunity.

Coding and Cybersecurity Event

Computer science teachers Virginia Peterson Jadav and Daniel Tamucci held a Coding and Cybersecurity event to expose students to the computer science offerings available at Port Chester High School. Interested students were shown interactive presentations detailing the two computer science paths that the high school offers, Coding and Cybersecurity.

“The purpose of the event was for students to check out Coding and Cybersecurity to see if they would be interested in signing up for it next year,” Peterson Jadav said. “The turnout was excellent. During our busiest periods, we had a full house in the library. Everyone had a great time!”

The Coding path presents a three-year progression that culminates in a video game design course, which will teach students to use the Unity game engine to design video games. The Cybersecurity pathway is equally exciting as it gives students a deep dive into the world of hacking and prepares students to take the CompTia Security+ exam, an industry-recognized certification.

“Port Chester High School is promoting the head start these courses provide when talking about post-high school preparation for the current technological age we need young minds to be ready for,” Tamucci said.

Students are encouraged to incorporate one or both paths into their elective schedules for the upcoming year.

“It was super fun and interesting, especially since it opened my eyes to the various computer science classes our school offers, such as Video Game Design and Cybersecurity 2, some with the potential to get you a job, and others to look excellent on your college transcript,” student Kanishka Patel said.

Black History Month Celebrated

As part of Black History Month, Thomas Edison Principal Paul Roncagliolo highlights the accomplishments of a different person each day during morning announcements. Teachers chose one person to research together as a class and display their projects in the hallway.

In Chyna Marino’s class students read nonfiction texts about Kobe Bryant’s life and legacy. Bryant aimed to inspire and challenge other young people to be their best selves. He is well known for his “Mamba Mentality” mantra. According to Bryant, Mamba Mentality means trying to be our best version of ourselves constantly. The class discussed this idea together and related it to their growth mindset SEL lessons, and then created a collaborative poster with another inspiring quote from Kobe.

“We were inspired to learn more about Kobe Bryant because of his strong message of strength, determination and perseverance through challenge,” Marino said. “Students were inspired by his message as we prepare for their first year of state tests, and we continue to try hard things in the classroom every day!”

Come out and support the Port Chester All Stars as they compete against other exceptional athletes in the region and develop their physical fitness, demonstrate courage and sportsmanship, experience joy and participate in a sharing of skills and friendship.

The Port Chester All Stars participate in the Pioneer League with other school districts in Westchester County, just as their typical peers do. Most of the students in the league have always had a dream of being a part of a varsity team, which has now been realized in an adapted manner that allows them to take part and gives them a strong sense of Port Chester pride and accomplishment.

“At every game you will see the best example of textbook sportsmanship – players giving up the ball to a teammate for a depth of interaction,” Director of Special Education Tatiana Memoli said.

Upcoming handball games in the Port Chester High School gym are scheduled for 2/14, 3/21, 4/11 and 4/26, all at 3:30 p.m.
