Samoset Middle School invited award-winning director and actor Shadrack Boakye to speak with eighth graders as part of the building’s Black History Month celebrations. Boakye is a survivor of the Liberian civil war. He shared his story of coming to the United States and how he faced adversity throughout his journey. Notably, Boakye told students about the profound impact one of his teachers had on his life and his success.

The presentation encouraged students to “cover” each other, or to take care of those around them. Boakye shared the several instances when someone covered him, which ultimately helped lead him to where he is today. Eighth graders were called to the front of the auditorium to share stories of how their friends have covered them and to thank the teachers who have had a positive impact on their lives. Students walked away with feelings of gratitude and pride for one another.

On Jan. 24, the Sagamore Middle School Music Department hosted a percussion clinic for the district’s middle school percussion students. The percussion students and band directors from Samoset and Seneca Middle Schools joined those from Sagamore for an exciting morning of clinics and performances. The event, which aimed to inspire this select group of students, took place from 8:30 to 11 a.m. Special thanks to Dr. Patrick Armann from Sagamore Middle School for organizing the event for our students.

This special event started with a clinic lead by Sachem’s very own Dr. Dylan Benson. Dr. Benson teaches at Nokomis Elementary School and is a seasoned percussionist and clinician who also helps coordinate the SCMEA Day of Percussion. This inspiring and motivational clinic provided an overview of percussion methods, technique and NYSSMA solo preparation, along with how to prepare and maintain students’ equipment appropriately.

Following the clinic, the Queens College Percussion Ensemble performed, highlighting various styles of percussion literature. The college students shared their practice techniques and approaches to learning various musical styles. This energetic performance included a variety of instruments in the percussion family which captivated Sachem’s middle school percussionists. A fun-filled, musical morning was had by all!

Sagamore Middle School will host the annual SCMEA Day of Percussion on Feb. 2 from 3:30 to 9 p.m. Percussion students from all over Suffolk County are encouraged to attend this special event featuring informative clinics, guest artists, and the opportunity to perform in a massed snare drum ensemble!
