Sachem High School North Valedictorian and Salutatorian

Sachem High School North Valedictorian and Salutatorian photo
Abigail Bandl and Kaylyn Spotton are Sachem High School North Class of 2018’s valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively. The two well-rounded student standouts have shown a relentless commitment to academic excellence during their four years of high school.

Among countless academic accolades, valedictorian Abigail is the president of the National Honor Society and an active participant in the Foreign Language, History, Math, Science and Tri-M honor societies. She has played trombone for nine years and has been a member of the varsity field hockey team for three years, serving as a team captain for two seasons. In addition, Abigail is a four-year member of the winter track team and a two-year member of the spring track team where she was a captain this year. Continuously challenging herself academically, she is enrolled in a number of Advanced Placement classes, including calculus, chemistry, government and politics, English, psychology and Spanish. Abigail will be attending Binghamton University to study biomedical engineering this fall.   

“A high school experience is what you make of it,” Abigail said. “Sachem has provided me every opportunity to make my dreams come true.” 

Salutatorian Kaylyn also has an impressive academic résumé. She is an active member of the Foreign Language, History, Math, National and Science honor societies and boasts a successful five-year athletic career as a varsity gymnast, beginning in eighth grade. Kaylyn has continuously challenged herself academically by enrolling in multiple college-level courses, including Advanced Placement biology, chemistry, English, B.C. calculus and economics this year alone. She will continue her academic journey at the Stevens Institute of Technology this fall, where she will study chemical biology. 

“During my time at Sachem I have made so many great relationships with my teachers,” Kaylyn said. “I have been able to learn so much from their professional experiences.”

The two Sachem standouts will receive their diplomas during the commencement ceremony on June 22. 
 

Sachem Finishes First at Regional Envirothon

Sachem Finishes First at Regional Envirothon photo
A team of five Sachem High School North students secured a first-place finish at the 20th annual Long Island Regional Envirothon environmental studies competition on April 25. 

Seniors Chris Eagler, Emily Hudak and Molly Kearns teamed up with junior Emily Gelardi and sophomore Miranda Garcia-Cassani as they navigated the five subject areas of this year’s Envirothon. The topics included the four recurring subjects of aquatics, forestry, soils and wildlife, and rangeland management served as the current issue for this year. 

During the competition, students cycled throughout the subject stations, where they answered a collection of multiple-choice questions that incorporated hands-on elements, including various equipment, maps and audiovisual devices. As part of the competition, students were given an environmental issue for the focus of an oral presentation that is delivered to a panel of judges. Students underwent extensive preparation during their free time leading up to the detailed 10-minute presentation. 

As first-place winners, each team member received $500 and a local field guide and was awarded an all-expenses-paid trip to compete at the New York State Envirothon in Geneva, New York, on May 23 and 24. 

Amy DeLury Named Professor for a Day

Amy DeLury Named Professor for a Day
Sachem High School North science research junior Amy DeLury was among 16 high school students from New York City and Long Island chosen to participate in the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s Professor for a Day program, examining protein homeostasis in health and disease.

The program serves as an opportunity for Amy to expand upon her extensive prion research and hear the latest innovative ideas from leading investigators in the field. 

In addition to her work in science research, Amy is currently enrolled in a number of challenging Advanced Placement classes, including chemistry, language and composition, physics, Spanish and U.S. history.

“I love science research because you can choose any project you like,” Amy said. “It is just like ordinary problem-solving but your solutions can change the world.”

Sachem Students Decode Long Island Biodiversity

Six Sachem High School North science research students making up two teams recently worked to expand their genetics knowledge through the Barcode Long Island program. 

The program, led by the Cold Spring Harbor DNA Learning Center and in collaboration with the American Museum for National History, Brookhaven National Laboratory and Stony Brook University, aims to enhance student understanding of the interdependence between humans and the natural environment. 

Each team of Sachem students developed a project to investigate biodiversity on Long Island and submitted a written proposal to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory for its annual symposium. Once accepted, the student-scientists took to the field to collect water quality data and biological specimens. Students then recently utilized the genetics lab at Stony Brook University to complete gel electrophoresis before sending the DNA samples out to be sequenced. Students worked alongside professional geneticists to extract and amplify DNA from almost 40 organisms. 

Through the Barcode Long Island program students gain an authentic science research experience harnessing the capabilities of genetics labs they would not otherwise have access to until college. Following the student research, each team will create a poster that will be presented to peers and professionals at the annual symposium held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s DNA Learning Center. 

Last year, a team of Sachem students discovered two organisms that have never been sequenced for DNA before. 
 

Sachem Teams Up for Technology

Technology transcended grade levels at Sachem High School North as students throughout the building explored numerous educational technologies during a collaboration between the library at High School North and the Sachem Public Library.

During the Sachem Public Library’s studio tour, the library at High School North bustled with students engaged in the latest technologies. High-tech devices offered were drones, mBots, Ozmo drawing tablets and a virtual reality headset simulator. Students interested in creative design and engineering could explore lower-tech options such as Strawbees and Legos.

“It was a really interesting experience,” student Joe Ennisi said as he waited on line to experience the VR headset. “These activities really make you think outside the box.” 

The introduction to the new technologies encouraged students to expand on curriculum concepts through tactile learning.
