Middle Country School District’s Centereach High School sophomore Robert Montano has been selected to perform in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. Robert is the first student to ever be asked to perform in the show in back-to-back years and the only student-performer from Long Island in this year’s show.
Robert will be performing in select shows every day of the week in the role of Patrick—excluding Tuesdays—until New Year’s Eve. Acting has been part of Robert’s life since he first performed in musicals at Dawnwood Middle School and then at Centereach High School. He has also been an active member in the District’s band and chorus programs since the fourth grade.
The Middle Country School District is proud to have a member of its student body be recognized as a star performer in one of the most renowned holiday shows in the country. The District is committed to providing all its students opportunities to showcase their talents whether it be through the arts, athletics or academics.

Recently, a group of twenty students from Leaders, DECA and video clubs at Newfield High School volunteered their time to help build and repair houses for Habitat for Humanity. Newfield High School students spent most of their day in masks and utility belts stripping down a house of old materials including insulation and foam board. Students spent five hours working together to improve a community and to make a difference. Their volunteerism assisted in Habitat for Humanity’s effort to build 10-12 homes per year in Suffolk County.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit charity focused on providing housing to the disadvantaged, with a focus on communities impacted by natural disasters and those targeted for community revitalization. The Middle Country School District is incredibly proud of this group of 20 students who volunteered their time to give back to the community. Through opportunities like these, Middle Country provides its students with ways to not only be successful in the classroom, but also be well-rounded citizens.

The Middle Country Central School District’s Centereach High School recently transformed into a haunted house, where elementary school students from throughout the District enjoyed an annual Trick-or-Treat Street event. High school students, clubs and the PTSA decorated the classrooms and dressed in costume to haunt the halls while elementary school students stopped by each classroom to collect candy, play games, complete crafts and more.
The event provides a safe environment in which students can partake in Halloween traditions that eliminates the risk of students going up to unknown residences. In addition, students representing all four grades, the Best Buddies club, DECA club, Math, Music, Theater Arts, Varsity sports and National Honor Society helped collect non-perishable food items from attendees to support the school’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.
Middle Country Central School District continues to bring students of all ages together for community-oriented, District-wide events.
