On Oct. 18, members of the Sachem community gathered for a celebratory event commemorating the 50th anniversary of Cayuga Elementary School and their commitment to excellence in education during that time. 

They daylong event began with congratulatory welcome addresses by building principal Matthew Wells; Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Graham; the mayor of Lake Grove, Robert J. Scottaline; and retired Cayuga teacher Susan Heppeler. Additionally, several current students shared their reasons why Cayuga is a special place to them. 

As the events continued, building retirees and guests were led on student-guided tours throughout the school where they learned interesting facts about Cayuga Elementary. In the cafetorium, guests enjoyed performances by members of the High School North chorus who were Cayuga alumni. As the chorus members performed, guests viewed an expansive slideshow of photos from the past and present. 

To conclude the day’s celebration, a time capsule from 1969 was opened to reveal interesting items from the past that included a class yearbook, school assignments and tape recordings from past students. Current Cayuga students carried on the time capsule tradition by adding their own items to the capsule, to be opened again in 50 years.

Sachem High School North freshmen recently gathered for a powerful assembly program led by seniors in Jon Chiaramonte’s peer education class, who shared encouraging insight on managing the emotions students encounter in high school. 

As part of the assembly, seniors showed photos from their freshman year and spoke of how they have been resilient and grown during their time as Sachem students, overcoming obstacles in their path. The freshmen spoke also about how they’ve grown since middle school, and resources were identified that are available to students in a time of need.

The Sachem girls’ gymnastics team has won a League II championship for the first time in six years and finished the regular season with an undefeated campaign. 

The Flaming Arrows will compete in the Suffolk County team championships on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 4 p.m. at Connetquot High School.

“We are all very excited and proud of what the team has accomplished this year,” Sachem coach Jan Zettwoch said. 

A number of girls also qualified for the individual Suffolk County championships on Friday, Nov. 8 at 4 p.m. at Babylon High School. 

Only the top 30 girls per event in Suffolk County qualify for this meet, so it’s quite an accomplishment. Sachem has four student-athletes competing: Summer Matlat (floor exercise), Riley McPartland (all-around), Lillian Noriega (vault, uneven bars, balance beam) and Samantha Woodburn (uneven bars).

Good luck to all of our student-athletes competing at their upcoming events. #GoArrows
