On Friday, 12 April, a dozen Wheatley students participated in the annual Long Island Italian Poetry Contest sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Italian (AATI). Students were led by our very own Italian teacher, Susan Vasselman.
There was a huge turnout this year at SUNY Old Westbury where the competition took place including over 300 contestants from all over Long Island! Five of our students came away with recognition!
- 1st place: Ella Suppa
- 3rd place: Evan Sheinman
- Honorable Mention: Lauren Tavolacci
- Honorable Mention: Eric Ness
- Honorable Mention: Victoria Mora
Congratulations to all of the student who participated, and thanks to Mrs. Vasselman for supporting the students!
