Long Beach High School was one of 15 schools that participated in this year’s Locust Valley Film Festival with over 250 entries. Only the best films in nine categories, Animation, Comedy, Commercial, Documentary, Drama, Horror, Music Video, PSA and Trailer, were screened. Long Beach students had nine of their films screened out of 68 films, and almost 15% of the films screened were by Long Beach students. To have your film screened is an honor that gives over 400 students the opportunity to watch each other’s films.

Long Beach students won the following awards at the Locust Valley Film Festival:

* First Place, Audience Choice Award: “Big Stewie” – Nanichi Arroyo-Hill, Lochlan Guenego, Dean Parenti, William Van Buren.
* Second Place, Best Comedy: “Big Stewie” – Nanichi Arroyo-Hill, Lochlan Guenego, Dean Parenti, William Van Buren.
* Second Place, Best Music Video: “Maybe Man” – Eile Guenego, Lochlan Guenego, Izzabell Lapi, Catherine Maguire, Vincent Napolitano, Lily Parlakian.
* An additional nine films were finalists and screened.

At the Long Island Media Arts Show, there were four blocks of film screenings, each about 30 minutes long. Since Long Beach had the most entries out of 12 schools, Long Beach had its own block of films. Long Beach had 17 films screened, with the next-closest district having only 12 films screened. Three film categories included nonfiction, narrative and alternative with a total of 64 films screened. Thirteen Long Beach students had films entered and six of those films were event finalists. Professional filmmakers evaluate each film and honor only three winners with an Excellence Award.

At the Five Towns Long Island Media Arts Show, Long Beach won:

* First Place, Excellence in Non-Fiction: “Robotics Club Spotlight” – Vincent Napolitano.
* An additional six films were finalists.

Long Island Teacher Recognized as STEM Star

Long Beach High School Science teacher Cody Onufrock was recently recognized by the Long Island STEM Education Leadership Association (LISTEMELA) as a beacon of light for Long Beach students.

Mr. Onufrock is always finding ways for his students and colleagues to engage in authentic, hands-on, real-world science experiences beyond the walls of the classroom.

Over the past several years, he has worked with local agencies such as The Town of Hempstead and Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery to bring several multi-year projects to the school. Some of those projects include, growing kelp and oysters in a pond, growing and releasing trout, establishing a reforestation project, and drawing on his background as a nature guide to bring students on field trips to engage with local natural resources like seal walks and hikes in Cold Spring Harbor.

He leverages these projects as authentic phenomena through which students learn relevant science concepts and understand aspects of environmental stewardship, for the projects not only cover relevant standards, many include an environmental restoration or conservation aspect.

The Long Beach teacher is one of fifteen science teachers from across Long Island recognized with this honor. STEM Star recipients were selected for their exemplary commitment to the vision of LISTEMELA, which is equitable student access to high quality learning experiences in STEM.

Guest Speakers Give LBHS Students Interesting Career Insight

Long Beach High School students involved in the school’s SMILE program recently had the opportunity to hear two special guest speakers give an overview of their careers. In March, the guest speaker in attendance was Justice Karen Gopee, Judge of the New York Supreme Court 11th Judicial District. In April, Akil Coad, NFL Vice President of Football Operations and Compliance met with students. Additionally, Mr. Coad is a graduate of Long Beach High School.

Both, Justice Gopee and Mr. Coad, attended the after-school program for close to an hour, gave an in-depth overview of their respective positions and answered questions from the students about the path that led them to the career they are in today.

Justice Gopee was elected in November 2021 and currently presides in Queens Supreme Court, Criminal Term, after serving as a judge in Queens County since 2016. She has presided over the Youth Part, the Domestic Violence Part as well as the Specialty Felony Waiver Part, working to improve alternative to incarceration dispositions and increasing programming options. She is the first Indo-Caribbean jurist elected and appointed to the bench in New York State. Students asked questions about the legal system as well as questions about pursuing a career in the legal system.

Mr. Coad began his NFL career in 2001 as an Operations Assistant with the New York Jets. Today, he is responsible for enforcing uniform and equipment rules and on-field policy. He has represented Football Operations by overseeing game operations for Pro Bowl and as a team liaison for the Super Bowl and the International Series in London. He shared with the students all the different roles in the NFL and explained people usually only think about the football players, but many jobs exist behind the scenes that play an important part of the bigger organization.

Each of the speakers encouraged the students to dream big, work hard and remember the possibilities are endless with continued focus and determination.

The mission of the SMILE Program is to empower individuals to become more self-aware and to develop the skills necessary to make informed decisions about their lives. SMILE strives to provide resources and support to help individuals gain insight into their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and to foster a greater understanding of the impact of their choices on their lives and the lives of those around them.

Special thanks to LBHS SMILE Advisors Patricia Baron, Ian Butler, Shelly Cepeda, Brian Horne, Natasha Nurse, Janna Ostroff and Kristin Susko.

The New York State Science Engineering Fair Update

The New York State Science Engineering Fair (NYSSEF) is a state level fair that has an affiliation to International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). NYSSEF/ISEF is the world's preeminent international science project competition for students in high school. Most students who participate in NYSSEF are juniors and seniors. This year, all LBHS 10-12 grade research students participated in Round 1.

One student, a sophomore, Vanessa Maltez was selected to proceed to round 2. To make the cut for Round 2, students are considered the top 15-33% of projects from Round 1. To get placed into round 2, those students are at the top 15-33% in all of New York State.


Vanessa worked with Dr. Brown from the Town of Hempstead Conservation and Waterways for an entire semester after school. Her project is unique because all school research programs that are competitive across Long Island require mentors and scientists for grade 11-12. As a sophomore student she has obtained mentorship which is extremely rare. With that said, Vanessa was selected to participate in round 2 at the New York Hall of Science in late March along with 200 other students chosen from all of New York State. These students are considered the top of the top and most elite group of researchers. After a full day of very difficult judging by actual scientists/experts in the field, Vanessa placed as an Honorable Mention and received an award.

The Long Beach Research Program was able to place Vanessa with a summer program an ivy league school, Brown University, to work with scientists on human microbiomes. She will be participating in cutting edge research and continuing to participate in our research program moving forward.

As well, Long Beach has other students participating in summer internships with the Town of Hempstead.

Congratulations to all Long Beach Research Students! We are excited to see what the future holds for each of them!
