Incentive Assemblies Held…

The week of March 27, assemblies were held for students belonging to the various "Teams" into which the population of Far Rockaway High School has been divided, i.e., the red, green, blue, yellow and rainbow teams. The assemblies recognized various accomplishments during last term, fall 1999, with students receiving certificates for such accomplishments as perfect attendance, passing all courses, joining the honor roll (for students with grade averages from 85 to 89) or joining the Principal’s Honor Roll (for students with averages of 90 or above).

Students Attend African-American Youth Forum…

On Monday, March 27, seniors Alissia Daley and Moses Polonio represented FRHS at a conference sponsored by Time-Warner, Inc. The African-American Youth Forum was hosted by New York City Councilman Bill Perkins, with Manhattan Borough President Virginia Fields as the keynote speaker. New York State Comptroller Carl McCall, also put in an appearance. The conference also featured workshops and panel discussions conducted by several notable African-American New York political figures. They served as role models for the student participants and included congresspersons, councilpersons, members of the N.Y. State Assembly and members of the State Board of Regents.
