Sachem Students Spread Safety

During a recent visit to the Sachem Central School District’s middle schools, Sachem High School East and North students enrolled in the Healthy Schools, Healthy Communities class presented lessons regarding the dangers associated with drug use to sixth-grade students.

As part of the high school course, students are transformed into teachers, equipped with the skills to educate students on the dangers of drugs and the importance of making healthy choices throughout life. 

As part of the Too-Good-For-Drugs curriculum, the high school students deliver a series of lessons as they periodically visit the district middle schools, delivering students valuable information to lead healthy lives. 

Sachem North Lends Hand with Habitat for Humanity

Students from Sachem High School North recently helped build a home in East Patchogue through Habitat for Humanity.

Open to leadership students at the high school, the activity was organized by Leslie Zanone, a social worker at Sachem North, and Jonathan Chiaramonte, a social studies teacher.

“We hope to get more classes involved,” said Zanone. “There has been a tremendous amount of interest in the school from students and teachers. We believe that Sachem North students could organize six builds a year, and that would be a dream!

“It is a very real experience for the students, and a concrete way for them to give their time and energy for the cause. We already have students asking to go back again in the spring,” said Zanone.

Rockets Take Learning Sky High

Physics equations fueled learning outside of Sachem High School North as students in Robert Wentzel’s Rocket and Aircraft Design class gathered to test launch multistage rockets they had constructed.

Prior to launch, students worked through various physics calculations to ensure the overall safety and success of their rockets. The student-engineers calculated the thrust necessary to reach 30 miles per hour while allowing the rockets to maintain a straight flight path. Also, students determined the speed at which their rocket had to fall to make a safe landing and then designed their parachutes accordingly. 

During the testing phase a focus was placed on unique design elements such as tube and fin size and how each component affected the rockets’ flight.

Sachem Students Share Kindness

Sachem ROCKS – Reach Out Choose Kindness Sachem. A simple acronym with a meaningful message is blanketed across the new kindness rock garden in front of Sachem High School North thanks to a program to promote kindness in a unique way.

An initiative that began in Andrea Biblow, Carrie Dansky, Jamie Durkin, Cheryl Haugie and Lauren Puleo’s communication skills classroom as a hands-on activity for speech and language students has transformed into a project with much more meaning. Painting by the dozens, these students are working to transform ordinary rocks into colorful pieces of art inscribed with uplifting messages of kindness. Once completed, the rocks are then placed outside, creating a vibrant kindness garden in front of the school. 

During this ongoing project, students have received special help from members of the Suffolk County Police Department, fellow students and parents, as all were invited to participate and create their own colorful kindness rocks. Extending the garden further, transition program students who work throughout the Sachem community practicing life skills in a real-world setting have been placing decorated rocks at their destinations, spreading kindness wherever they go. 

All who have participated are encouraged to include the hashtag “Sachem ROCKS” on their designs in order to help spread the kindness project beyond the borders of the school community. 

Throughout the month of November, opportunities for students to create their own rocks will be offered within the building to continue to promote the power of kindness.
