Amityville Memorial High School Hosts Lonnie Kittle/Norm Maisel Tournament

AUFSD_Wrestling_Tournament_3.png thumbnail208403
(December 2021)—Amityville Memorial High School welcomed back the Lonnie Kittle/Norm Maisel tournament after a year’s hiatus due to the pandemic. The tournament holds the distinction of being the longest-running wrestling tournament in New York State, with the first tournament being held back in the 1970s. This year’s edition also represented the first wrestling tournament held in Amityville Memorial High School’s recently dedicated Fred Williams Memorial Gymnasium. Over the weekend of December 4-5, five high school wrestling teams competed in the tournament: Amityville, Mattituck, Lindenhurst, St. John’s the Baptist, and University High School from West Virginia.

“Our Lonnie Kittle/Norm Maisel tournament was a great success, and we were thrilled to be able to bring it back this year for the enjoyment of the Amityville community and the high-level competition it brings forth from the participating teams,” said Evan Farkas, Amityville High School Director of Athletics, Physical Education and Health. “I want to give a huge shout out to all the teams that attended this year, especially University High School for making the long trip from West Virginia to join us !”

The Amityville High School wrestling team finished third overall. Congratulations to our wrestlers who placed in the top six in their respective weight classes:

KyJier Bethea: 2nd place at 110 lbs
Donte Riggsbee: 3rd place at 138 lbs
Josiah Miller: 3rd place at 285 lbs
Enrique Mercado-Torres: 4th place at 285 lbs
Benson Guillaume: 6th place at 126 lbs
Kenneth Garcia: 6th place at 160 lbs
Ignazio Sanchez: 6th place at 189lbs
Matt Buskey: 6th place at 172 lbs

Amityville Teacher Implements Innovative Teaching Technique

AUFSD_Modern_Classroom_2.jpg thumbnail207473
(November 2021)— Amityville Union Free School District’s October Teacher of The Month Nominee has garnered a lot of attention due to her unique and innovative teaching method. Ms. Schgweigert’s Modern Classroom gives students a more individualized approach to learning.

Ms. Schweigert faced the inevitable challenge of her students learning at different paces throughout each lesson. As every teacher experiences, she found herself having to repeat key components of the lesson to cater to those who needed extra instruction, while those who had already grasped it were ready to move on. To differentiate instruction within the classroom and better maximize both her and her students’ time, Ms. Schweigert took the liberty of filming herself teaching each lesson over the summer. This way, after her initial introduction of each lesson, the students are free to watch the remainder of the instruction on their own. They are able to pause, rewind, and replay as much as they individually need so that they can get the personalized instruction they need. It also permits Ms. Schweigert to give individualized attention to students throughout each class session.

“I think this is a great contemporary method of teaching,” said Mr. Edward Plaia, Principal of Amityville Memorial High School. “We are aware that our students have their own way of learning and absorbing information. It is our job as educators to be able to recognize each of our student’s needs. Everyone learns differently and at a different pace!”

In addition to asynchronous video learning, students gain encouragement from each other through a system of magnets on the classroom whiteboard. Each student has their own magnet that is placed in a particular section of the whiteboard to signify their progress throughout a given lesson. For every lesson, there is a Must Do section, a Should Do section and an Aspire section. Students earn their grades as they complete each section.
