Five Westhampton Beach High School student-musicians have been named to the prestigious New York State Band Directors Association High School Honor Band, the highest on record for the school.

The students — Amanda Albert (French horn), Lilah Caputo (clarinet), Ali Jedlicka (trombone), Joey Litjens (trombone) and Dan Stark (percussion) — were selected for the honor based on the impressive scores they received at the New York State School Music Association adjudications last spring.

The performance will take place the weekend of March 4-6 in Syracuse.

Westhampton Beach High School psychologist Elizabeth Martrano and social worker Kaitlin Gebhardt worked with the district’s English department to facilitate a gratitude activity for students during November. In their English classes, high schoolers viewed a presentation about the benefits and science behind practicing gratitude and used prompts to write what they are grateful for on index cards. The cards were then arranged in a visual display.
