Technology Creates Collaboration Among Community

Solder joined together more than wires during the Build It Forward Project at Sachem High Schools East and North as students worked collaboratively with the Sachem Public Library to assemble a pair of 3D printers constructed of mostly 3D printed parts.

The yearlong collaborative effort created an important community connection in which the Sachem Public Library aided students in the assembly of a fully functional 3D printer. Working to construct individual printing devices, 3D Printing students at High School North and Computer Repair Technician students at High School East conferred with library staff as they referenced plans and printed parts of the printer on a 3D printer they had in the classroom. 

“Pooling our resources and working with open source designs and software, our students can collaborate in the planning, printing, building and even refining of the parts and pieces necessary for the project,” said Administrative Assistant for Instructional Technology Jack Renda. “As we integrate with our technology department and the focus of our elementary STEAM lessons in problem-solving and innovating, we know this real-world application will be an outstanding learning experience.”

Together students reviewed the intricate plans before printing each piece of the printer that they were tasked with constructing. As part of the tedious construction process, students displayed their knowledge of wiring, electronics, electronic communication and the installation of firmware and software. 

With the completion of the extensive project, the connection will continue between the library and school district as they plan to utilize the two 3D printers to create other printers for middle school and elementary school buildings throughout the district in the future. 

“We are thrilled to be partnering once again with the Sachem Public Library on this project,” Renda said. “Together, we continue to build great relationships with our buildings and libraries, and are excited for the opportunity our students will receive learning in depth about the inner workings of these devices as we build them.”

Annual Commencement Celebrates High School North Class of 2019

Annual Commencement Celebrates High School North Class of 2019 photo

Smiles and cheers from family and friends welcomed a distinguished group of graduating seniors on June 28 to the Sachem High School North commencement ceremony honoring the Class of 2019 and celebrating their plentiful accomplishments.

As “Pomp and Circumstance” carried through the air, the excited graduates took the field at Fred Fusaro Alumni Stadium for the last time as students of the Sachem Central School District. The commencement exercises then began with the national anthem performed by the Sachem North Symphonic Choir Seniors, conducted by Cara Caliendo. 

Principal Patti Trombetta began her address by recognizing several students who would be entering the armed services following graduation. As she continued, her address gracefully outlined the wishes she had for the Class of 2019 as they move into the future. 

“I wish you always play hard, take chances, give everything and have no regrets,” she said. “Every day, take a moment to just take it in. You owe it to yourself to make the most of every moment.”

Assistant Principal Coleen Flanagan then presented the top 25 academic students with medals, ending with salutatorian Miguel Maramara and then welcoming valedictorian Amy De Lury to the stage to address her fellow graduates in a speech that highlighted the unique nature of the school community they shared. 

“I look at the Class of 2019 and I see so many differences between us – whether it be religion, beliefs, culture, interests or career paths,” she said. “In a class of 527 seniors, there are so many differences between us. Yet I can see similar traits between all of us as well – our kindness, our achievements, our sense of humor and our acceptance of what’s to come. And then there is a factor that united us all – the Sachem community.”

Continuing the ceremony, Class President Lauren Breuer delivered a heartfelt speech to her classmates that reflected on their time as Sachem students, the plentiful lessons they learned together and how they will apply their experience to thrive in the future.

Presenting the Class of 2019 was Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Graham, whose speech empowered students to embrace the changes that lie ahead. “By adapting to the changes ahead of you, being malleable, you will be better prepared to face and overcome challenges,” he said. “Life after Sachem schools is going to present new, exciting and tough challenges to each of you. I hope that you are better prepared to face these challenges as a result of your experiences here in Sachem, and I hope you are ready to change!”

After the final diplomas were presented, cheers echoed across the field as students propelled their caps to the sky, exiting the field as alumni of the Sachem Central School District. 

 




Italian Classes Travel to the Metropolitan Museum of Art

On Wednesday, May 29, Mr. Massimo’s and Mrs. DiMaggio’s Italian 4 Honors classes from both Sachem High School North and East went on a field trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan.  

For the last few weeks, students in Italian 4 Honors have been learning all about the Italian Renaissance and its contributions to the modern world. They explored a variety of topics, such as how the architectural innovations of Brunelleschi and the inventions of Leonardo DaVinci would change the world. Students were introduced to some of the masters of Italian art, such as Bernini, Botticelli, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael, as well as other important figures of the time like Machiavelli and Galileo. 

To enhance the experience, Mr. Massimo came up with a scavenger hunt that would challenge the students while they strolled through one of the greatest museums in the country. Working in teams, students had to use what they learned in class to decipher clues that would lead them to not just the paintings and sculptures of Italian masters such as Bernini, Canova, Caravaggio and Michelangelo, but also to other famous masterpieces from all over the world, such as the paintings of Monet, Rembrandt, Vermeer and van Gogh, and the sculptures of Rodin and Degas, just to name a few.  

As they wandered through the halls of the Met, students had the chance to appreciate more than just art. They discovered artifacts from ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, weapons and armor from the Middle Ages, and rare musical instruments, such as Stradivari violins and the world’s oldest piano, not to mention the rock-and-roll exhibit.  

After leaving the museum, students ate their lunch in beautiful Central Park before boarding the bus back home.  

The field trip was a wonderful experience for everyone. For many, it was their first visit to the Met; for others, their first to a museum. Students seemed to truly appreciate being able to see for themselves, in person, beautiful works of art by the world’s greatest masters and amazing artifacts from all over the world and from throughout human history. However, what really made the trip special was how it brought to life so much of what they have learned in the classroom.   

Students Share Stories of Strength

Students Share Stories of Strength photo
The speech-language department at Sachem High School North recently hosted an inspiring celebration in honor of disability awareness that showcased the courageousness of 12 incredible students.

For more than 15 years, students from the speech-language program have delivered heartwarming speeches outlining the struggles they have faced throughout their lives. 

In front of an audience of parents, faculty and fellow students, the speakers shared inspirational messages about how they overcame adversity to reach their goals both academically and in other aspects of their lives.  

“Your disabilities do not define who you are. It is only you who defines you,” senior Christina Aurisano said. “Other people perceive you; they do not define you.” 

The student presenters concluded their speeches by sharing their plans for the future and some hopeful words of encouragement for their peers who may also face adversity.
