1. 1. Wednesday, the Merrick community said goodbye to Sacred Heart School for good. See a letter from the principal here. Patch will have continuing coverage on the closure of Sacred Heart through the end of the week.
2. With temperatures reaching 95 degrees, there is a heat advisory for the area. Check out some things to do to stay cool in Merrick and some more to do in Bellmore! Have another idea? Feel free to tell us in the comment section!
3. With graduation only a few days away, check out some salutatorian profiles. Danielle Wolin will walk as number two in her class at Calhoun, while Luke Massaro is Kennedy's salutatorian.
4. Gunther is set to close for good on Friday. Come back to Bellmore Patch later today to see a piece bidding the school farewell.
5. End of the year functions? School picnics? Prom? Last day of school? Although Patch wants to be everywhere, we can't always. Give us a hand and send us your favorite year-end photos for a gallery! Email Emily.Cappiello@patch.com or Danielle.DeSouza@patch.com!
