    Various Styles, Similar Outcomes

    Differentiated instruction is a key component of
    the education program across the Herricks Public
    Schools, as it supports the various ways of learning
    that are found within each classroom. Teachers use
    varied strategies of differentiation, many of which
    have been standard practice in Herricks for years
    and are making their way into even more areas of
    curriculum and instruction.

    Green Initiatives Grow

    Herricks is ahead of the curve in
    environmental care, having taken numerous
    “green” steps. Throughout the district,
    efforts have been made to shift toward more
    environmentally friendly products as well as
    increase awareness of them.
    Districtwide, empty ink and toner
    cartridges are sent to specified locations to be
    recycled. This school year, the Food Services
    Department switched to purchasing corn
    starch sporks that are only 10 percent plastic,
    in place of entirely plastic utensils. Herricks
    is one of only two districts on Long Island
    that made the shift to biodegradable trays,
    and next school year, will be changing to
    paper straws from plastic.

    Ten National Merit Finalists

    Ten Herricks High School students have
    been recognized as National Merit finalists by
    the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
    Congratulations to Hannah Chu, Ankit Jain,
    Christina Kim, Simon Liu, Eish Maheshwari,
    Mariana Mohsen, Cayla Moy, Nicole Park,
    Uttsav Patel and Sahith Vadada, who are among
    approximately 15,000 students across the country
    to have achieved this feat.

    Leading the Way!

    Center Street, Denton Avenue and Searingtown
    Schools have all been recognized as Project Lead the
    Way Distinguished Schools. They are among only 214
    elementary schools across the country to receive this
    designation by offering at least two PLTW Launch
    modules at each grade level and having more than
    75 percent of the student body participate during
    the 2017-18 school year. PLTW is a STEM-based
    curriculum used in grades K-5 and middle school.

    Mental Health Is Key to a Well-Rounded Education

    As mental health awareness grows, the Herricks Public Schools have been enhancing the curriculum with extensive social-emotional learning and mindfulness programs. This past summer, the New York State Education Department passed a law requiring schools to provide a mental health component within their educational programs, and Herricks is ahead of the curve in this area.

    Capital Projects Update

    The district has come a long way with regard to the 2016 bond referendum for capital improvements, and students and staff members are enjoying new and improved facilities. As highlights, the cafeteria remodel, finished for the start of school and the track and field, completed last spring, were celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony during this year’s homecoming.

    75 Years of Outstanding Music

    The Herricks community came together to honor the 75th anniversary of the Herricks music department this past November, thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Herricks Public Schools and Music Boosters. More than 1,100 guests and upwards of 350 student-musicians filed into Herricks High School for an evening gala that featured outstanding performances by students in kindergarten through grade 12.

    Regeneron Finalist

    Herricks High School senior Eish Maheshwari has been recognized as a Regeneron Science Talent Search finalist after being named a Scholar in the competition earlier in January. He will travel to Washington, D.C., from March 7-13 to present his work and vie for monetary awards.
