Three Northport High School Seniors Are Honored as National Merit Semifinalists

The school year kicked off with a strong start for Northport High School seniors  Camden Burk, Tara D'Amico and Rudolph Mastrocinque, who were announced as National Merit semifinalists.  The National Merit Scholarship Program honors “individual students who show exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies.”
This honor is the first step for the students towards the opportunity to win National Merit Scholarships which will be offered next spring. Less than 1% of high school students nationwide are deemed semifinalists, and the students are chosen based on their scores on the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).
Tara, Camden and Rudolph will now move forward with a scholarship application inclusive of their academic record, participation in school and community activities, leadership experience, employment and other awards and honors they have received. They will also be endorsed by a Northport High School official and need to write a compelling essay. 
The district is incredibly proud to have three students receiving this honor for the 2020-2021 school year. 
“I’m extremely proud of our three National Merit semifinalists, and I am confident they will move on to the next round. Each of them is brilliant and unique, and this honor is the first of many accomplishments for them,” shared Northport High School Principal Daniel Danbusky.

Northport-East Northport School District Hosts Successful Summer Band Camp

Of their many academic and extracurricular programs, Northport-East Northport School District’s band camp is certainly one of the students’ favorite offerings. While the 2020 band camp week, hosted from August 18th to August 22nd, was organized quite differently from past years, nearly 300 students were still able to participate and learn a variety of musical, marching and dancing skills. 
Students were arranged into seven cohorts to maintain social distancing, and the camp was hosted across four different facilities. At the conclusion of the week, students in each cohort performed for their parents and families, marking the end of another successful program. 
When asked about her experience this summer, Flagline Captain Ella Dengler shared “Besides the conditions we were in, it was so fun to be with the team again and to hear all the music.” Flagline Captain Erika Lorentzson added “after being deprived of in-person human interaction for so long, it felt really good to be back. Although things are different this year, I still am hopeful and excited to spend a season leading this team as a captain alongside a group of girls who are like family to me.”
This Fall, the band will continue to be led by Dr. Izzet Mergen, Director of Fine and Performing Arts, as well as Lynn Cromeyn, Band Director. The entire department is looking forward to a successful year and is exploring new ways to bring the band experience to life under the new state guidelines and school protocols.
