This is sort of different, but there is a special three-year honors program called the Summa Cum Laude at Bishop Chatard for the advanced student. The program is designed to meet the needs of those students who are academically gifted and motivated by offering courses that challenge and reward them. In addition, the program encourages involvement and leadership in extracurricular activities and service. This three-year program, encompassing the sophomore, junior, and senior years, will challenge and prepare the most gifted college-bound individuals for a successful postsecondary career.

Questions for Wantagh 8th graders: WE ARE 8TH GRADERS!

Do people really swim at Jones Beach? Or is it too cold? Yes, we do! We find this question to be funny... It's cold, but it's a nice contrast to the hot weather. A town called Long Beach has a Polar Bear Swim sponsored by Make-A-Wish Foundation. The Every Super Bowl Sunday, thousands of people take a dip to raise money for this worthy cause. Last year the water temperature was 39 degrees F. and the air temperature was 30 degrees F.
