Why We Tell The Story

PLAYCRAFTERS PRESENT thumbnail207546

Welcome to the Caribbean! The Farmingdale High School Playcrafters proudly present their rendition of Once on This Island. An exciting one-act musical based on My Love, My Love: or The Peasant Girl by Rosa Guy, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid. A story about a peasant girl falling in love above her class, told around a fire by a group of Caribbean peasants as they wait out a terrible storm.

“Once on This Island is one of my favorite musicals of all time,” said Farmingdale High School Director Ms. Jessica Mischke. “This beautiful story of how one seemingly insignificant girl becomes myth and hope for those she left behind demonstrates how the good we do echoes and continues long after our lives are over.”

The standout cast, which featured several NYSSMA honored all-state musicians, kept the audience engaged throughout the entire one-act musical. Juniors Molly Keena and Makai Jones performed the starring roles of fearless peasant girl Ti Moune and her affluent love interest Daniel. The powerful island gods, Erzulie (Trinity Babino), Asaka (Raniyah Elguerouat), Papa Ge (Rebecca Kenjesky), and Agwe (Matthew Murrell), guided Ti Moune on a remarkable quest to reunite with the man who captured her heart. Ti Moune’s adoptive mother and father were played by seniors Riley Leahy and Ben Hoffman. Sophomores Ryan Sweeney and Ava Monteleone had the roles of Daniels’s father and fiance. Rounding out the cast, playing the part of the little girl, was Albany Avenue Elementary School fourth-grader Stella Levenson.

“We are so grateful to perform our annual musical,” said Farmingdale High School Director, Ms. Jessica Mischke. “Once on This Island demonstrates that by giving love and sharing our stories, we can bring everyone together toward the greater good.”

No musical production would be complete without a reliable, talented production staff. Pit Conductor Mr. Ed Kozlowski led the orchestra, assisted by Mrs. Pat Facchiano, while Ms. Jamie Capasso and Mr. Erik Chocianowski headed design and construction. Lastly, Mr. Joseph Hasset, Mrs. Cherie Dreyfus, and Mr. Corey Sterler managed lighting and sound.

Director Jessica Mischke and Assistant Director/Choreographer Erik Mischke’s presentation of Once on This Island was a colorful tale of inspiration and hope. A beautiful gift from the Farmingdale Playcrafters to our community as we enter the holiday season.

Junior Class Ring Ceremony

The class of 2023 celebrated a milestone at Farmingdale High School, the Junior Ring Ceremony. This ceremony is special for the juniors, as it recognizes all the hard work they’ve done, thus far. Family and friends gathered together to commemorate their progress through high school. The rings are a reflection of all the memories and hard work students have achieved at Farmingdale.

Junior year is one of the hardest and most stressful years, but this ceremony is a celebration of the junior’s character and strength. It serves as a reminder for the class of 2023 to work together and not let the upcoming years divide them in competition as they take standardized tests and apply for college. The junior ring is a keepsake that these young men and women will keep forever and symbolize their years as a Daler.

Orchestra Director Receives University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Award

OUTSTANDING thumbnail206342

Therese Mannino, Orchestra Director at Farmingdale High School, received the University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Award.

An Outstanding Educator shapes young minds in meaningful ways—thoughtfully approaching instruction, sharing an infectious love for learning, and caring for students both inside and outside the classroom. Each year, newly admitted UChicago students have the opportunity to reflect on their time in school and nominate an educator who played a significant role in their education, made a positive impact in their lives, and whose influence has brought them to where they are today. Mrs. Mannino was nominated by Farmingdale High School’s class of 2021 Salutatorian, Antonio Castano. Castano, an AP scholar, was also a member of the Farmingdale High School’s symphony orchestra as a viola player and the pit orchestra for play productions. He was also a member of the Italian Honor Society, Science National Honor Society, Science Honor Society, JV/varsity football team, and varsity track and field. Castano was also named a National Merit PSAT/NMSQT Commended Student and PSAT 10 National Hispanic Scholar.

The University of Chicago is honored to recognize excellence in teaching and sincerely congratulates this year’s Outstanding Educator Award winners, exceptional in their field, and role models for all students. The University deeply appreciates the lively minds who thirst for knowledge that these educators have nurtured and inspired. We thank them for going above and beyond the call of duty every day and leaving an impression that will be carried over a lifetime.

All award winners receive a commemorative award, certificate, and letter that includes details from the student they were nominated by. Principals and superintendents of award winners will also receive communications notifying them that their employees have received the award.
