Congratulations Class of 2019!

Congratulations Class of 2019 photo

The Carle Place High School Class of 2019 gathered for one last time to celebrate their accomplishments and receive their high school diplomas on June 28. Sitting on the high school field under blue skies, the graduates smiled, sharing this milestone with each other and their families.

Superintendent of Schools David Flatley presided over his final commencement at Carle Place before officially retiring. “As I bring my own career to an end tonight, I think of the 13 years we have spent together, and I consider myself an honorary member of the Class of 2019,” he said. “We should reflect on the challenges and triumphs we have shared.”

Valedictorian Gabriella Deninno addressed the class, sharing a quote that she said the senior class has heard many times from Mr. Flatley: “To those to whom much has been given, much will be expected.” Gabriella said that throughout their years in Carle Place, the senior class has been given a lot. “Therefore it’s expected of us to work hard, to strive for greatness, and when we can, give to others so they too can achieve,” she said.

Salutatorian Christina Kapralos thanked all of those who helped the senior class to succeed and reminded her peers of their special connections. “The bonds we formed will always have a special place in our hearts,” she said.

Board of Education trustees Anthony Bulzomi and Neal McLaughlin each shared inspiring words with the Class of 2019 and their families. Bulzomi offered 10 tips for a successful future and McLaughlin applauded the group’s successes.

Class President Julia Winer also addressed her classmates and Caroline McLaughlin gave the farewell address before Principal Thomas DePaola
presented the Class of 2019. 

Students filed onto the stage to receive their diplomas, and senior Kerry Carrera fell to her knees and was brought to tears when she was surprised by her father, U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Luis A. Carrera, who returned home from deployment overseas to see his only daughter graduate from high school. 

With an emotional end to a meaningful education, the Class of 2019 now has one more memory of Carle Place that will stay with them forever.

Mr. Flatley has served Carle Place for 16 years, beginning as assistant superintendent for instruction and personnel in 2003 before being promoted to superintendent of schools in 2010.

Additionally, five members of the Carle Place School District were awarded tenure by the Board of Education: Assistant Superintendent for Special Education and Pupil Personnel Services Dr. Philip Molnar, Chairperson for Special Education Allen Foraker, Carle Place Middle/High School special education teacher Jenna Iannone, Cherry Lane literacy teacher Danielle Emmel and Rushmore Avenue teacher Jacqueline Gardiner.

Congratulations to all of our tenured staff and retirees for your dedication to the students of Carle Place!
