Farmingdale High School Roars with Pride

FHS Roars with Pride thumbnail182966

Farmingdale High School has been on a roll all year, receiving commendations and awards in a variety of areas both locally and nationally. Now, Farmingdale High School can add one more award to the impressive list! On Tuesday, April 27, U.S. News & World Report published the highly anticipated 2021 Best High Schools rankings. Among the impressive list of high schools was the District’s very own Farmingdale High School!

“Farmingdale High School is honored to be named as part of the U.S. News & World Reports’ 2021 Best High Schools,” said Farmingdale High School Principal, Dr. Samuel Thompson. “I can’t think of a better way for the work of our students and staff to be recognized. May this achievement serve as a reminder of what can be accomplished as a united community with a shared goal of academic excellence.”

The Farmingdale School District prides itself on its ability to prepare students for life post-graduation through the employment of a curriculum that provides students with the tools and experience they need to succeed. The data, collected during the 2018-2019 academic year, assessed students' display of college preparedness, reading and math proficiency, reading and math performance, and performance on Advanced Placement exams, as well as the District’s high graduation rates, all of which are core metrics for evaluating a high school’s national ranking. Our Dalers’ performance in all of these areas, as well as their impressive scores on several statewide assessments, did not go unnoticed, affording the school a spot on this highly regarded list.

“Farmingdale School District’s students’ and educators’ ability to continue to perform at a high caliber is truly remarkable but in no way surprising,” said Superintendent Paul Defendini. “Recognition of our student’s academic capabilities in U.S. News & World Reports’ is a tremendous achievement, and we should strive to be included every year. Congratulations, Dalers!”

Schools that ranked in the top 40 percent nationally achieved status as U.S. News Best High Schools. Those recognized gained eligibility to display U.S. News-trademarked 2021 Best High Schools award “badges,” which are emblematic of the institution’s hard work. This achievement is shared by the students, staff, and teachers of Farmingdale High School, whose dedication to providing top-tier education, especially during these times, is truly commendable.

A New Season, A Renewed Sense of Hope

Covid Vaccine Provided to Farmingdale School District Staff thumbnail182094

Heroes work here. Signage attesting to that fact adorns the grounds around the Farmingdale School Districts’ six school buildings as it marked the one-year anniversary of the schools shutting their doors to in-person instruction due to the Coronavirus pandemic. With Spring, though, comes the promise of better times ahead. Signs of this are evident throughout the district. Students are back in school, sports are up and running, and a long-awaited vaccine is finally here.

"I am so thankful for the volunteer effort of our administrators, nurses, Walgreens, Village, and South Farmingdale EMS, The Marketplace at 317,” said Superintendent Paul Defendini. “Dozens of people donated their time and services to support this critical event, and together we vaccinate more than 300 staff members. Farmingdale is an exceptional community, and I am prouder than ever to call myself a Daler.”

The Walgreens Pharmacy staff was on-site at Farmingdale High School on Monday, March 22, from 2 PM to 8 PM to distribute the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine to interested staff members. Over 300 people signed up! Having teachers and staff vaccinated is essential to the full safe reopening of all school buildings. Navigating through the New York state’s websites to find an available appointment at a local vaccine center has been a struggle for many Long Islanders. The Farmingdale School District is extremely thankful to Walgreens for making their School District a priority and making the vaccination process seamless for the community.

The long hours distributing these vaccines was also made easier by a generous donation of catered, grab-and-go food provided by local merchant, the Marketplace at 317. Joe Fortuna, named the Farmingdale Outstanding Businessperson of the Year by the village's chamber of commerce, graciously offered the Walgreens staff and volunteers food to help get them through the long hours. Fortuna owns The Nutty Irishman and 317 Main Street, a duo of eateries in Farmingdale Village. The Marketplace at 317 opened earlier this year and is located behind 317 Main Street.

“The Farmingdale community has been so supportive of the restaurants throughout these challenging times,” said Joe Fortuna. “When Paul Defendini reached out about having food catered, I was eager to pay it forward and show my appreciation.”

R.E.A.L Harmony Club

REAL HARMONY thumbnail180910

Please enjoy this encore performance of the first-ever Black History Month Program—sponsored by the R.E.A.L. Harmony Club. A brand new introduction has been created by members for 2021. The program was an opportunity for students to recognize and celebrate the central role that black Americans have played in the history of the United States.

“Last February we were able to put on the first ever Black History Month Program. It was a truly inspiring program highlighting the accomplishments of Black Americans while also featuring the struggle for equal rights that has unfortunately been a large part of the Black experience in America,” said teacher and club advisor Esther Hernandez-Kramer. “Though we were not able to put on a performance this year due to COVID restrictions, we are proud of our work last year and would like to invite you to enjoy and reflect with us the meaning of Black History Month by watching last year’s performance.”

The program included student performances in a variety of artistic mediums, including: music, song, skits, dance, and poetry readings. The Steppin’ Dalers also performed one of their routines. The finale was performed by Raniyah Elguerouat, Makai Jones, Tania Gomez, Matthew Murrell, Deja Prewitt Hailey Batista, Isabell Bitsimis, Girannah Jean-Louis, and Joe Magazzo, who sang “I Know Where I’ve Been” from the musical Hairspray.

The goal of the R.E.A.L. Harmony club is to promote ethnic and multicultural awareness and diversity at Farmingdale High School. The R.E.A.L. stands for Respect- Education- Awareness- Love. Upcoming projects include Multicultural Storytime with students from district elementary schools. The sponsors of this club are Esther Hernandez-Kramer and Josseline Morales.
