Elwood-John H. Glenn High School’s varsity and junior varsity football teams participated in an afternoon community food drive at Stop & Shop in East Northport on Sept. 25. The teams filled 17 shopping carts worth of donations from community members to help fill local food banks.

“I was proud to be member of the community and so many people were so generous,” Athletic Director Dave Shanahan said. “The importance of giving back to the community and helping people were certainly on display, and most importantly, the lessons learned will last a lifetime. I’m so appreciative of all of our student-athletes, community members and our football family. It was a great day to be a Knight.”

The Elwood School District Board of Education recognized outstanding accomplishments from recent graduates of Elwood Middle School at the board’s Sept. 15 meeting, led by Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Bossert.

Elwood Middle School Principal Dr. Moran introduced the students, all now freshmen at Elwood-John H. Glenn High School.

Ishan Shah was honored for spearheading the development of the Ethics Bowl at EMS, making it one of only two schools on Long Island to participate in this prestigious event. He also personally applied to participate in the online conference of students around the nation in the Model U.N., representing Elwood Middle School. Shah was awarded second place as an Outstanding Delegate.

Next up were students Brianna Mauro, Kylie Meehan, Danielle Rehren and Emma Rothleder, all members of local Girl Scout Troop 1619. They were honored for their tireless service last year to the middle school, where they prepared daily public address quotes for Black History Month, developed an interactive bingo game for Women’s History Month, and for their Silver Award, created an “Inspiring Women” display for the middle school library. The latter work incorporated QR codes and a mirror so that young female students can literally see themselves as they learn about 40 remarkable women.

"These students embody our mantra of respect, responsibility and relationship, and spent their three years taking full advantage of everything the middle school has had to offer," Dr. Moran said.
