Student-Musicians Recognized

Student-Musicians Recognized thumbnail176675
Riverhead High School seniors Nathaniel Bollermann (Cello), Lauren Enos (Bb Clarinet and Bass Clarinet), William Green (Percussion) and Ethan Lucas (Voice) have been selected to perform at the prestigious New York State School Music Association All-State Festival, to be held virtually Dec. 3-5. Will Green was also selected as an alternate on drum set for the jazz ensemble.

Prior to the selection process, students were evaluated on many different aspects of their musicianship, among a pool of candidates from across New York State.  After a rigorous selection process, our Riverhead students will now be participating in All-State ensembles for the second consecutive year and in principal roles.  

“This is an amazing accomplishment and is a direct reflection of their work ethic and the work our Riverhead music teachers have done with these students since they have started," said Jason Rottkamp, director of fine arts.

The Riverhead Central School District congratulates each of these students on their musical accomplishments.

HCARE Program Continues Virtually

1 thumbnail173222
COVID-19 did not put a halt to Riverhead High School’s popular summer HCARE (Health Careers Academic Readiness and Excellence) program. Rather than in-person, the program took place virtually from July 13 to 24.

The summer program, hosted in partnership with Stony Brook University, assists high schoolers in preparing for health-related college courses and careers. Students participated in presentations with researchers, scientists and numerous professionals in the health care industry. They also learned about the college application process, time and stress management, team building, study habits, interview skills, community service and more.

The 10 participating students also demonstrated teamwork skills through daily online team-building exercises that focused on communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and compassion.

Studio Art Showcase

Although Riverhead High School Studio Art students couldn’t display their work traditionally at their school due to COVID-19, they created a virtual showcase by designing shareable online portfolios using Google Sites. The impressive student compositions included a variety of media, from acrylics and watercolors to oil pastels and colored pencils. To view the students’ work, click the links below.
