Sachem High School East Celebrates Class of 2022

On Thursday, June 23, the Sachem High School East Class of 2022 proudly marched out of the building for the last time to “Pomp and Circumstance,” met with cheers and applause from a crowd made up of friends, family and distinguished guests. Graduates created a sea of red caps and gowns on the football field, as they celebrated their achievements while looking ahead to the future.

The annual commencement ceremony began with the Pledge of Allegiance, led by the graduates who will be entering the armed services. It was followed by the performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” from the senior chorale.

High School East Principal Louis Antonetti gave up his opportunity to speak to allow a graduating senior to address the class. Earlier this school year, Jamie Anello voiced her positive opinion of Sachem High School East to administration in an email, which left a lasting impression. She was asked to speak at graduation and followed the theme, “It takes a village.”

“I can wholeheartedly say the teachers who have crossed my path during my time here are the reason why I’m still going in the right direction,” Anello said. “I was privileged to have numerous teachers who have touched my life beyond anything that can be learned in a textbook. They care about their students’ lives beyond the four walls of their classrooms. It means a lot to know someone is listening, and when a teacher shows that they care, students feel less alone.”

Following Anello’s speech, the academic leaders of the class were called up to the podium to receive a medal. Salutatorian Michaela Barresi was acknowledged for her achievements inside and outside the classroom, and valedictorian Antonia Pavek addressed her peers, encouraging them to embrace change.

“Today is a momentous checkpoint in our lives,” she said. “Today we must change, as we grow and transition into the people we want to become.”

Class president Yousuf Suleman delivered a speech that reflected on the challenges the Class of 2022 overcame. He noted how the class came together to persevere, and reassured graduates that they are not alone.

“The past 13 years have provided you with the skills you need to create your own success,” he said. “Rely on those around you. The road to success does not need to be a lonely one.”

As remarks concluded, Mr. Antonetti was joined by the Board of Education and District administration to hand the seniors their diplomas. Once the class was confirmed, the seniors turned their tassels and threw their caps in the air, marking the end of their high school careers.

Room for PEACE

Students in The Room for PEACE thumbnail218320

A former computer lab at Sachem High School East has been transformed into a space for students to go to decompress during the school day. The Room for PEACE was developed as a proactive approach to provide students with access to a calm space with chosen, self-directed activities that promote development of coping skills and self-regulation. It opened this May, which is Mental Health Awareness Month.

Students utilizing the room acknowledge its mission statement:

Personal choice to

Empower themselves by becoming more

Aware of their own mental health and wellness and to develop

Coping skills and regulate

Emotions.

Students can choose to sign up and visit the room during their lunch period instead of going to the cafeteria or library. They can partake in a number of quiet, individual activities including meditation, listening to music, coloring, using the essential oil station and drawing on water tablets. It even has a fragrant garden that grows spearmint, peppermint, lavender and lemon balm.

School psychologist Dina St. Giles came up with the idea after implementing a virtual calming room during the pandemic. Once school reopened, she had the goal of bringing it to life.

“It’s a big building and the cafeteria can be overwhelming,” she said. “As a psychologist working with some students who have anxiety, there was no place like this for them to go. I’ve been thinking about it for a while.”

Ms. St. Giles hopes that the Room for PEACE will continue to grow in years to come. Next year, she plans on adding a resource library with tools that focus on wellness, as well as materials that teach students about anxiety and depression.
