HHS Memorial Day virtual concert remembers fallen heroes

main thumbnail169524
While Memorial Day parades were out of the question this year, Harborfields' music department — specifically the Harborfields High School marching band and kickline team — maintain a steadfast commitment to serving the community and honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Marching Band Director Allison Scilla and Kickline Director Jackie Best coordinated the effort to create Memorial Day performances from home. With the editing skills and efforts of Harborfields High School science teacher, Mike Khan, the acts were tied together. With an introduction from Ms. Scilla, students performed "Harborfields Will Win," "Tribute to America" and "Taps." The solo trumpet heard on "Taps" is that of high school senior Jared Buchholtz.

“One of the most special performances the marching band and kickline do every year is perform in our Memorial Day parades where we honor the brave men and women who gave everything in service to this county,” Ms. Scilla said. “There is no parade for us to march in but we wanted to do something just the same. We sincerely hope that next year we are together again.”

Harborfields Central School District is proud to announce that Thomas J. Lahey Elementary, Washington Drive Primary, Oldfield Middle and Harborfields High schools were all recently designated 2019-2020 “No Place for Hate” schools by The Anti-Defamation League.

The schools will join more than 1,800 schools from across the country who have partnered with the league to develop and institute programs designed to celebrate equity, acceptance and diversity.

In an email to the middle School, ADL wrote, “We truly appreciate your school’s commitment to creating a safe and inclusive environment for all students. Without you, No Place for Hate would not be possible.”

This year, both TJL and Washington Drive are celebrating their “Gold Star” designation, marking their third year as “No Place for Hate” schools. Harborfields High School is also celebrating its third year as an ADL designated school.

“We have achieved this honor due to our commitment of creating a safe and inclusive learning environment for our students,” TJL Assistant Principal Andrea Horowitz wrote.

“We are so excited to share that WDPS has been designated a Gold Star No Place for Hate school for the 2019-2020 school year,” Washington Drive Primary School Assistant Principal Kerry Neira wrote. “It’s a proud tradition of our building.”

On Thursday, May 21, there will be a social media campaign to celebrate the 1,800 “No Place for Hate” school communities, using #NoPlaceforHate. Administrators will share a brief video explaining at least one thing that schools did this year to promote diversity, inclusion and “allyship.”

“Join schools across the country as they take over the internet with the awesomeness of students, educators and parents,” ADL wrote.
