At its second meeting of February, the Sachem Board of Education recognized three schools within the district for their extraordinary volunteer efforts.

To begin the recognitions, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Erin Hynes commended all buildings throughout the district for their continued volunteerism. Sagamore Middle School was recognized for the organization of three student-driven initiatives, including a Christmas card drive that collected 700 cards for troops stationed overseas, a coat drive that collected eight bags of coats for Sachem families, and a hat, glove and sock drive that collected over 75 items for those affected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma. 

From Lynwood Elementary School, the Student Lighthouse team was recognized for the organization of its annual Thanksgiving food drive, which assisted 29 Lynwood families this year. In addition, the student group collected various holiday items that were donated to 30 Sachem families.  

Continuing the special recognitions, social worker Karen Grieco from Nokomis Elementary School was recognized for her ongoing efforts to organize charitable events for the benefit of the overall Sachem community. 

Concluding the special recognitions, the district fifth-grade spelling bee champion, Gavin Flynn from Grundy Avenue Elementary, and runner-up, Sara Vetter from Tamarac Elementary School, were recognized for their spelling prowess.


Lynwood Elementary Students Break Down Erosion

Proactive designs propelled Lynwood Elementary School first-grade students in Corinne Hinteman’s class as they used construction to stop destruction during a STEAM activity focused on coastal erosion.

The goal of the activity was for each student group to construct a wall capable of withstanding conditions that replicated erosion. To begin the activity students were supplied with clay, cloth, cotton balls, Popsicle sticks and tape. Utilizing the provided supplies students began design and construction of their walls that would need to withstand 20 simulated waves created by Hinteman. The walls separated sand from water and the success of each wall was determined by the amount of sand that floated from the shoreline into the water. Following the initial test students made improvements before the walls were tested again. 

Concluding the activity, each group engaged in a student-directed discussion about design improvements that could have positively affected the outcome of their experiments.

A special science topic intrigued students at Lynwood Avenue Elementary School as they attended an educational program on the Long Island aquifer system presented by the Suffolk County Water Authority. 

Each third-grade class at Lynwood listened to important facts about the aquifer system on Long Island – including the different components of the system – and how homes are supplied with clean water. A demonstration using red dye showed students how easy harmful chemicals can leach through the ground into the water supply and create unsafe drinking water.

Throughout the presentation students asked questions and discussed ways to limit pollution in their everyday lives.

Two times each week, a Lynwood Elementary School classroom transforms into a magnificent dance hall as fifth-grade students practice popular ballroom dances. 

In its ninth year, the program teaches students dance skills that improve nonverbal communication, problem-solving and teamwork. Student partners practice in unison as they first review the steps by counting aloud together, then add music to each dance. During the 10-week program designed by Dancing Classrooms Long Island, Teaching Artist Jessica Heins and Educational Liaison Alison Armbruster guide students through seven dances, including the merengue, foxtrot, rumba, waltz, tango, swing and polka. 

At the culmination of the program, the students put on a performance for their parents showcasing their new dancing skills.
