I commend our graduates for all they have learned and accomplished this year—not just with their academic excellence but their character, integrity, and to each other,” said Dr. Edward Fale, Superintendent of Schools. “Thank you to our teachers, staff, Board of Education members, and parents who worked tirelessly and collaboratively to ensure our students' education came first. It is only through all of these efforts that our seniors enjoyed a myriad of opportunities that broadened their horizons and made their graduation possible.”

During the ceremony, the valedictorian, Mikhail Ankudovych, and salutatorian, Andielynn Llamas, addressed their fellow graduates and reflected on their journey at Amityville Memorial High School.

(JUNE 2022)—Amityville Memorial High School seniors recently held their Senior Prom at Jericho Terrace in Mineola. As it is for each graduating class, the event was a time for celebration, reminiscing about the year just ended, and honoring the end of their high school journey together.

“Prom is a night that our students will always remember,” said Edward Plaia, Principal of Amityville Memorial High School. “I’m glad they were able to enjoy themselves in their peers and teachers' presence and celebrate the accomplishments they all achieved over their high school years together.”

At the prom, several “most likely” awards were announced. Valedictorian Mikhail Ankudovych was voted “Most Likely to be President.” The two students voted “Most Likely to be Late” truly lived up to their award, missing the prom altogether due to their tardiness. Congratulations to seniors on a beautiful prom and a successful high school career!

(MAY 2022)—Amityville Memorial High School senior Mekhi Stevenson’s artwork will be featured in the regional Long Island’s Best student art exhibit, sponsored by the Hecksher Museum of Art. Mekhi’s artwork, “Modern Sketches,” was inspired by the teaching sketches of the famous German artist, George Grosz. Mekhi will be continuing his development as an artist next year at the Academy of Art in Pennsylvania.

Now in its 26th year, the Long Island’s Best program challenges students in grades nine through twelve to choose a work of art that is on view in the museum as inspiration for their own creative expression. Approximately 79 pieces of student-created artwork out of 399 entries from 55 Long Island High Schools were selected for inclusion in this year’s show.

This year, the Long Island’s Best exhibit will be available to view in person at the Hecksher Museum through Sunday, May 29. The exhibit will also be available for online viewing at: https://www.heckscher.org/gallery/?post=15050.
