Outdoor Fitness Equipment
Grantee(s): Michael McManus, Daniel Klarfeld
Faculty Sponsor: Nicholas Zawerucha
This grant will fund the purchase of outdoor gym equipment, including parallel bars and a pull-up bar, for students to use during the school day, in gym classes, and team workouts. Because this equipment will be outside, it will be available for use by all students, even when the school gym is closed.
Grantee(s): Bennett Weinberg
Faculty Sponsor: Gwynne Bettencourt
This grant will provide funding for a student photography competition. A Senior Photography Specialist at Sotheby's has volunteered to serve as Judge. The competition will kick off in February 2023, with submissions due in the spring and winners announced in May. Five winners will have high-resolution, 20"x24" Vibrachrome metal prints of their photographs exhibited in the hallways at MHS by June.
Debate Team Resources
Grantee(s): Samantha Siegel, Kira Tretiak
Faculty Sponsor: Jacob Lee
The Mamaroneck High School Debate Team participates in tournaments throughout the year. Students typically need to purchase their own supplies, including debate stands, legal paper, and accordion folders. This grant will fund the purchase of supplies for 95 Team members, in this way relieving students of this cost burden and allowing students of all economic backgrounds to participate.
