Spartan Spotlight

Our Spartans are multi-talented, caring members of their community.
Each month the “Spartan Spotlight” will shine on a student who has done something special beyond the walls of his or her school. Whether it be sharing their talents with others, excelling at a non-school related sport, participating in a hobby, or volunteering their time to help out, we want to let everyone know how our Spartans shine.

June 2019: Anthony Maione

Anthony Maione NAME: Anthony Maione

AGE: 10

GRADE/SCHOOL: 5th Grade, Homer Brink

SPOTLIGHT MOMENT:  Anthony took first place in piano (elementary level) in the Southern Tier Music Teachers’ Association competition held this spring.
If he hears it, he can play it! Anthony has been playing piano for the past six years. While he takes formal lessons once a week, playing by ear is his favorite way to make beautiful music. In fact, he can’t resist playing whenever he encounters a piano. His love of music began at home, but listening to the organ at church was what really piqued his interest in the instrument.  Anthony has shared his talents in the community playing at a fundraiser for GiGi’s Playhouse, and at school, by accompanying the Homer Brink chorus at concerts. He will perform for his fifth grade classmates at their graduation ceremony this month.


Hobbies/activities: In addition to the piano, Anthony also plays the saxophone. He is an athlete, lacrosse is his sport, and he takes French lessons.

Favorite subject: Math

Least favorite subject: Social Studies

What he wants to be when he grows up: Anthony is interested in becoming an Air Force pilot, or a famous pianist of organist.
