3 Honored at Elwood

The Elwood School District honored the careers of three individuals –
Carol Dano, the late Joe Pace and Patricia Biscardi – by inducting them into the Elwood Wall of Fame.

Established in 2018, Elwood’s Wall of Fame recognizes individuals who have contributed  to the school community.

Biscardi served for nearly 30 years as a paraprofessional at Elwood Middle
School. Known as “Grandma” to generations of students and staff after her
second granddaughter attended the school, she supervised students in the cafeteria,
chaperoned school functions, monitored students in the library and served as a bus

Dano served Elwood for 21 years as a family and consumer science teacher and
community volunteer. She led the Student Community Service Club, organizing a
Thanksgiving dinner and dinner theater for the community’s senior citizens for over 20
years. She also served as a class adviser, Head Start contributor and PTA member.

Pace, who died on July 23, began his Elwood career in 2000, serving 22 years as a fifth-grade teacher and AIS math specialist at James H. Boyd Intermediate School. He also coached the Elwood-John H. Glenn High School varsity boys golf team, leading them to the 2021 league championship, and played drums for Boyd’s The Coconutz band.

Walking Track

The Cold Spring Harbor Central School District celebrated the completion of two
walking tracks at both Lloyd Harbor Elementary School and West Side Elementary School.

Students and staff are using the 1/4-mile walking tracks for exercise, fresh air and conversation surrounded by nature. Both tracks will soon have educational station installments for curriculum-based learning opportunities and additional outdoor student activities.

Elwood-John H. Glenn High School students Juliette Beuka, Katherine Madrid and Grade Motta recently earned the Hispanic Heritage Student Achievement Award scholarship, worth $500. The three Elwood students were recognized at the 28th annual
Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration at Huntington Town Hall and hosted by the Town of
