As part of a life science lesson, Nokomis Elementary School students explored aquatic pond organisms during a presentation by the Department of Environmental Conservation. 

During the interactive presentation, fourth-grade students from Nokomis Elementary were asked to identify the segmented parts that make up each organism. Equipped with magnifying lenses, the students began to inspect the pond organisms and worked together to sketch the individual parts. Among the various pond organisms were tadpoles, dragonfly nymphs and crawfish. The students also learned of the larger species that inhabit ponds and their unique roles as predators within the ecosystem. 

At the conclusion of the activity, David Pomeranz and Maggie McCabe from the DEC initiated a conversation amongst the students about how each segment of the organisms serves a purpose out in the wild.

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.

Staff Gathers for Superintendent’s Conference Day

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.
