Summer Leadership Academy at Mercy College
Are you a high school junior with an average of 90 or better with a passion to major in business, looking for something to do this summer? If so, please see your counselor for a chance to attend a weeklong Summer Leadership Academy at Mercy College. Tuition and boarding are free; students simply need to provide their own transportation to and from the campus and spending money. If interested, please see your guidance counselor as soon as possible. Deadline to be nominated is February 15, 2014.
Wednesday, at the Section 1 State Qualifier, North Salem had two athletes
competing for a chance to be entered in the New York State Public High
School Athletic Association State and Federation Championships.
Jake Acito, senior, entered into the 3200m run as the eleventh seed.
Running a smart race, Acito improved his season's best by over ten seconds,
to finish in a time of 9:40.20, and more importantly, qualify for the state
meet with a third place finish. This marks one of the first times North
Salem has had an athlete qualify for the State Meet in Winter, on the
Track, which is especially difficult because the competition is against
schools of all sizes in Section 1.
Alex Monaco, junior, entered into the Long Jump as the 4th seed. Jumping
well in the trials, Monaco entered the finals of the competition as the 2nd
overall finisher. He improved his qualifying mark to almost equal that of
his personal best and school record, in 21 feet, 3 inches. Unfortunately,
the event was unusually deep with talented jumpers this year, and Monaco
finished fourth by three-quarters of an inch. Alex concludes his season as
the 40th best long jumper in New York State, after much of the season
returning from injury.
*Jake Acito will be moving on to the State Championships next Saturday, at
*CONGRATULATIONS TO BOTH ATHLETES ON A GREAT SEASON!*

Congratulations to the following North Salem Photography students who
earned an Honorable Mention at the Lewisboro Land Trust photography exhibit
this past weekend. The students' participation in the exhibit was
made possible by the PTO. The show will continue to be on exhibit at the
Katonah Village library's two galleries for the entire month of February,

The Tech-Wise Guys robotics team which is comprised of Dan Lubitz, Josh Levine, Kyle Scheuing, Aaron Scurlock, Megan Hendrie, and Amanda Siciliano recently competed in two 24-team tournaments against some very tough challengers. Using a GoPro camera attached to the robot with a specialized part created by Dan on our 3D printer, the team captured all the action. Great job to Kyle for editing the footage.
The North Salem Community Garden was a wonderful success. Here are some photos of the wonderful produce. Stay tuned for instructions as to when and how you can sign up for the next growing season. Call Dr. Bovino with any questions at 914-669-5414 x2029.
