EI Student Danielle Kaczynski Wins Pageant

Islip Terrace’s Danielle Kaczynski, who graduated from Connetquot Elementary this June and will attend sixth grade at East Islip Middle School in September, won the title of 2012 Miss Pre-Teen Photogenic New York.

Aided by numerous local businesses that sponsored her, Danielle’s victory in the age 10-12 division took place at a May 19 pageant competition. She won an expense-paid trip to Orlando, Fla. where she will represent New York at the national 2012 Miss Pre-Teen competition later this year.

Before graduation, Danielle served as vice president of Connetquot’s student council. She sang at Radio City Music Hall with the Connetquot Chords chorus group last December, and as a soloist at the dedication of the new Connetquot playground on June 6. She also performed in the school’s winter and spring concerts, both in the chorus and as a flutist and drummer in the advanced band. She has participated in East Islip Competition Cheerleading (EICC) since first grade and counts gymnastics, modeling and acting as her other main activities.
