Locust Valley High School is proud to announce that Elizabeth Gresalfi has been named the valedictorian and Nicole Berritto has been named the salutatorian of the Class of 2022.

For Elizabeth, becoming the valedictorian is the culmination of years of enjoying school work. She focuses on making everything she does fun, even her homework.

“If I play music while doing homework, it makes it more enjoyable,” she said.

Elizabeth explained that if you’re having fun, it’s easier to work hard. She must have been having a lot of fun over the years, because Elizabeth is quite accomplished. She is an International Baccalaureate Diploma Candidate and an Advanced Placement Scholar with Honors, and will earn the Seal of Biliteracy as well as an Advanced Regents Diploma with Honors and Mastery in Science and Math.

In addition to her official coursework, Elizabeth taught herself to code. “It seemed interesting and is an area with room for growth,” she said. Of course, she had fun learning this new skill and therefore succeeded. Her interest in this topic may lead her to major in computer science, math or physics.

Elizabeth is captain of the varsity field hockey team and earned All-State Honors as a junior and was recognized for having the most goals scored in Nassau County as a sophomore. She is also a member of the varsity lacrosse and basketball teams and was on the Nassau County championship team as a sophomore.

Elizabeth is a leader as treasurer of the Interact Club and a tutor for middle school students in a variety of subjects, including Spanish. She is a member of the National Honor Society, Neuroscience Club and Spanish Honor Society.

Attaining the second-highest grade point average for the Class of 2022 likely happened because of Nicole’s curiosity. She likes to know the answer to everything, and that inquisitive nature has led her on a path to learn as much as possible. As a matter of fact, learning is so enjoyable for her that Nicole’s favorite class is IB European History, for the sheer fact that she knew nothing about the subject prior to taking the class.

“School is not a chore,” she said. “I like to know how things work.”

Nicole is an IB Diploma candidate and AP Scholar with Distinction. She serves as Class President and the Vice President of both Italian Honor Society and National Honor Society. She is a member of the varsity lacrosse team and a scholar-athlete in varsity soccer. Nicole is also a member of the Art Honor Society, Italian Club, Model United Nations and Student Government. She participates in the Science Research Program and will earn the Seal of Biliteracy as well as an Advanced Regents Diploma with Mastery in Science and Math.

Nicole loves to travel and has taken the concept of a semester abroad one step further by applying to study full time in the United Kingdom. She hopes to study science and her internship experience at The Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research will certainly serve her well.

Elizabeth and Nicole are connected not only by sharing the top spots in the Class of 2022, but have played on the same travel lacrosse team since they were little. They both find sports to be relaxing rather than competitive and enjoy being on the athletic fields with their friends. They both love learning and have attained academic success because of that.

Congratulations and best of luck to Elizabeth and Nicole!

Falcon Spirit Soars at Homecoming

Spirit soared as students, staff and guests celebrated Locust Valley High School’s Homecoming. The skies were blue and the sun was shining on Sept. 25, as the day began with the Homecoming parade. Vehicles trailing floats made by each grade drove through Bayville and Locust Valley, sharing their school spirit and pride with the community. Other cars joined the parade with banners, green garland and spirited students on board.

The high school’s Athletic Council not only organized the Homecoming festivities, with a Hollywood theme, but they spearheaded Spirit Week, which helped build the momentum leading up to the big day. Theme days included monochrome Monday, tropical character day, Hollywood day and, of course, go green day! The most spirited student awards went to freshmen Holly Ward and Ryan Roberts, sophomores Jenna Linden and Mary Fitzgerald, juniors Oliva Del Tatto and Louis Singe and seniors Amber Linden and Mike Veteri. Science teacher Veronica Ciampi took the prize for most spirited faculty member and the world languages teachers won for most spirited department.

The Athletic Council presented awards for the most spirited staff members and students during the Sept. 24 pep rally, at which varsity athletes were celebrated. Locust Valley Middle School also held a pep rally on Sept. 23, celebrating the middle school athletes and pumping up the spirit for Homecoming.

The Falcon Faithful fans were out in full force to cheer on the varsity football team. The Homecoming floats lined the south end zone as the Falcons played with pride against a talented East Rockaway team. Although the Falcons fell to the Rocks, the day was a winner, bringing the community together to celebrate.

Halftime performances by the cheerleaders, kickline and pep band not only highlighted student talent, but also revved up the energy for the second half of the football game. Homecoming court was announced with juniors Giovanni Allocca, Olivia Del Tatto and Emma Ginsberg receiving sashes. Seniors Brett Dalis, Julia Perrin and Gia Villella were the senior Homecoming court winners. The award for best Homecoming banner went to the cross-country team, with kickline and field hockey following with second and third place respectively. The Class of 2022 won for the best Homecoming float and the most spirited grade.

The collective energy of all the students and staff contributed to a successful Spirit Week and Homecoming, helping us all to feel proud to be Falcons!
