Due to the inclement weather forecast which includes heavy rain and lightning, Hicksville High School Graduation will be held inside the gymnasium and auditorium. Attendance at indoor graduation will be limited to 2 ticket holders only. Only ORANGE tickets will be permitted into the graduation ceremony. Due to limited capacity in the gymnasium, additional seating with a live video feed will be available in the auditorium located near the front entrance of the high school. This seating will be on a first come, first served basis. Please note that entry to the gymnasium is at the rear of the building. Once capacity is reached in the main gym, where the ceremony takes place, all others will be directed to the auditorium where a live video feed of the event will be transmitted. AT NO TIME WILL ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATION CEREMONY BE OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. ONLY FAMILY MEMBERS, WITH ORANGE TICKETS WILL BE PERMITTED TO ENTER THE BUILDING.
Hicksville Middle School Student Council members and their advisors, Ms. Fitzgerald and Ms. Presti, decorated the front of the middle school in commemoration of Memorial Day and in recognition of the men and women who have served in our armed services and who continue to serve.
Sunday, April 30th marked the 55th Anniversary of the Kiwanis Youth Awards.

At this year’s brunch the Kiwanis Club of Hicksville recognized 8th graders from Hicksville Middle School, Holy Family School and Our Lady of Mercy School. Selected by their respective teachers and administrators, these children were the most improved in either academic subject(s) or physical fitness.
