Beaming with Pride


Amityville Memorial High School recently served as host to the annual end-of-the-year, district-wide dinner and celebration of student accomplishments and the arts, known as Pride Day. The AMHS Jazz Band, led by adviser Brian Carter, kicked off the festivities with yet another wonderful performance. Fourth-grade teacher and returning Master of Ceremonies Marc Engler delivered the opening remarks and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mary T. Kelly welcomed Amityville students, their families and friends, faculty, staff, administration and Board of Education members, all of whom gathered on the AMHS field on a beautiful afternoon–early evening.

Students from Northeast Elementary School led guests in the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance. They, along with singers from Northwest and Park Avenue Memorial Elementary Schools and Edmund W. Miles Middle School delivered uplifting choral selections before the Presentation of Stars from their respective schools. The EWMMS Step Team also performed and AMHS presented its Stars as well.

Director of Fine Arts Fran Fernandez coordinated the event.
