Four students from the Riverhead Central School District recently performed in the Long Island String Festival Association’s Suffolk Intermediate and Secondary festivals, held in January at Hauppauge High School and St. John the Baptist High School, respectively. 

The students, 12th-grader Sarah-Anne Fried, 10th-grader Nathanial Bollerman, eighth-grader Dara Marchini and sixth-grader Luciano Vene, were selected after receiving high scores on their performances at the New York State School Music Association Solo Evaluation Festival last spring. 

Additionally, Fried, a violinist, and Bollerman, a cellist, each earned the exceptional honor of first chair status at the LISFA festival. 

In preparation for the LISFA concerts, the students rehearsed and received instruction from highly regarded guest conductors on advanced repertoire.

From Riverhead High School, 53 students rehearsed and performed alongside hundreds of exceptional East End student-musicians, with the culminating concert held Feb. 2 at Eastport-South Manor High School.

Acts of Kindness

Acts of compassion and thoughtfulness filled the halls of Riverhead Central School District’s schools during the weeks of Jan. 28 and Feb. 4 as students took part in the annual Great Kindness Challenge, which aims to foster kindness within schools and is spearheaded by the district’s Peacemakers, a group facilitated by Riverhead CAP’s Elementary school social worker, Shannon Kutner.  The Peacemakers are an anti-bullying group. 

Riverhead’s elementary students stepped up to the challenge by performing as many random acts of kindness as they could with teachers fostering a multitude of kindness lessons in their classrooms. 

At Phillips Avenue and Roanoke Avenue elementary schools, fourth-graders in the Peacemakers Club decorated their schools with kindness-themed signs and created kindness rocks along with their teachers. They also met with the original members of the club, who are now in high school.  

Aquebogue Elementary School took on the challenge by hosting school spirit days and collecting change, called, “kind coins” for those in need.

At Riley Avenue Elementary, every class designed kindness banners and hung them outside of their classrooms as part of a schoolwide contest. Students also wrote kind notes to their peers, which were delivered by the school’s student council as part of a letter writing campaign to spread warmhearted sentiments.

In Riverhead Middle School and the high school, students worked to cross off kindness checklists provided to them by the Riverhead Community Awareness Program’s social workers, who are placed in those schools.
