Following the completion of a competitive screening process, Andrew Larson, a longtime employee of the Sachem Central School District, has been named the new principal of Hiawatha Elementary School. 

For seven years, Mr. Larson worked as an elementary classroom teacher at Waverly Avenue Elementary School before serving as an assistant personnel administrator at the Sachem District Office for one year. As part of his expansive administrative experience, Mr. Larson was an assistant principal at Sachem High School North for one year and most recently was an assistant principal at Sachem High School East for five years, where he effectively supervised various departments, coordinated home teaching services and established a clear and consistent system of student support. 

Mr. Larson holds a Bachelor of Science degree in child study from St. Joseph’s College and a Master of Science degree in education and educational administration and supervision from St. John’s University. In addition, he has two New York state certifications: a permanent certification in pre-K to grade 6 and a professional certification in school building leadership. 

“It is a tremendous honor to be a new member of the Hiawatha community,” Mr. Larson said. “I’m looking forward to meeting all of the great families who call Hiawatha their home.”

A series of lessons on the colonial times that took place last school year sent fourth grade students at Hiawatha Elementary School back in time as they participated in several activities that recreated aspects of that important time in American history. 

Through their exploration of colonial times, students researched everyday life, games, transportation, food, clothing and commerce. As part of the engaging activities, students practiced penmanship with quill pens and ink, performed math on slate boards and reinforced their spelling and geography skills during a bee.   

During an event that culminated their expansive study, students dressed up in attire that was popular during that time period. In addition, family and friends were invited for an outdoor picnic where they made checkerboards, spinning tops and played colonial games.
