The Bayport-Blue Point School District Board of Education celebrated a number of staff and student accomplishments during its May 7 meeting.
To begin the night’s recognitions, Bayport-Blue Point High School freshman Matthew Allen was thanked by the Board of Education for raising enough funds to plant the large tree which now resides in the front courtyard of Bayport-Blue Point High School. Matthew and his fellow Boy Scouts dug the hole and planted the tree with assistance from Director of Facilities Dennis Martin. 

Sylvan Avenue Elementary School third grade teacher Lori Mandracchia was acknowledged as the Teacher of the Month for the Month of April, and was met with words of praise from Superintendent of Schools Dr. Timothy P. Hearney for her accomplishment. According to her colleagues, Mrs. Mandracchia is always invested in her students’ academic, social and behavioral growth throughout the year, reinforcing positive character traits and behaviors that model good citizenship along the way. 

James Wilson Young Middle School science teacher Erick Mueller was recognized as the Teacher of the Month for May due to his enthusiasm he displays for his content and his engaging classroom presence. Additionally, he is credited for bringing fun and entertaining multisensory activities into his classroom to enhance student learning. After Dr. Hearney spoke kind words on behalf of Mr. Mueller, he recognized the 14 James Wilson Young Middle School students who took part in this year’s Science Olympiad Competition. Along with technology teacher Robert Donarummo, Mr. Mueller serves as co-adviser to the accomplished team, who were just one spot shy of making the top 40 teams at this year’s competition.
