Fire Prevention Demonstrated at Lynwood

Fire safety took precedence at Lynwood Elementary School as students participated in fire prevention-week activities this October, including an informative assembly presented by members of the Farmingville Fire Department.

During the assembly, students enjoyed multiple demonstrations by the firefighters, learned essential safety tips for emergency situations and witnessed the rescue capabilities of the department. Students watched a vehicle extrication scenario as well as multiple firefighters rappelling from the department’s ladder truck from a height of approximately 100 feet.  Firefighters taught students how to safely exit from a burning structure and the importance of developing a meeting point in a safe location outside their home in case of a fire. 

At the conclusion of the demonstrations, students were given time to explore the various apparatuses and ask firefighters questions about their experiences as members of the fire department. 

Throughout the district, local departments will visit the schools to educate students on best practices in emergency situations.

Throughout the month of September, Sachem Central School District students and staff came together to organize a variety of fundraisers and activities to benefit the victims of devastating hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Among the various items collected were personal hygiene supplies, nonperishable food items and a harvest of crops grown in Wenonah’s community garden, as well as gift cards and other monetary donations.

All items will be donated to one of three Texas schools the district has adopted or to local organization Island Harvest.

The Sachem Central School District began a new tradition on Sept. 5, as the entire faculty and staff from all 15 buildings gathered for an inspirational Superintendent’s Conference Day at Sachem High School North.

A sea of red Sachem apparel blanketed the bleachers of the High School North football field as more than 1,000 staff members listened to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Graham address the crowd. Dr. Graham began by thanking all members of the faculty and custodial and security staff, whose tireless efforts make the success of the district possible. 

Following Dr. Graham’s opening comments, Assistant Superintendent for Personnel Kristin Capel-Eden honored a group of educators and support staff who have completed more than 30 years of service to the district. Each honoree crossed the stage to cheers from their colleagues as they accepted their certificate of recognition.

Dr. Graham continued his presentation with four short stories, each of them highlighting the importance of creating a deep connection with students. Drawing from a personal experience with his fourth-grade teacher, he illustrated the impact that one educator can have on a student’s time in school and encouraged the professionals before him to “take pride in your work, take pride in your students and always remember that we are Sachem.” 

After the presentation, faculty and staff attended various staff development activities throughout the district.
