A Morning of Madness Brings Happiness to Seniors

The Long Beach High School PTSA Morning Madness Committee continued its longstanding tradition of providing seniors with a safe and celebratory “all night” post-prom party. The 24th Annual Morning Madness event was held at Dave and Buster’s in Westbury, where all members of the senior class were welcomed. Free busing was offered for students who did not attend prom.
The party was a success, drawing more than 220 students who played pool, sang karaoke, bowled and had a chance to spin a scholarship wheel. As has become Morning Madness custom, several raffles left attendees who were present at the end of the event with greatly sought-after prizes, including a Dell laptop and brand new 2015 Nissan Versa car. This, in combination with the activities, food and good company, presented an incentive to stay for the duration of the party.

Morning Madness committee Chair Ann Marie Scandole coordinated the entire celebration with the assistance of Rhonda Healy and other PTSA members. The volunteer parents, in collaboration with the district, held fundraisers and other efforts throughout the year to make this opportunity possible.
