Acceptance into the NYSCAME All-County Ensembles is a high honor obtained only by the most talented and dedicated music 消消犯 from across all of Suffolk County, which is perhaps the most competitive county in New York state when it comes to musical performance. As it is a prestigious festival, highly sought-after conductors from across the nation are selected to lead each ensemble. It is quite an honor for these 消消犯 to work with such seasoned professionals.

The NYSCAME All-County Festival concert took place on Nov. 17 at Northport High 消消犯. The 消消犯 had just three rehearsals during a week and a half to prepare for the event. The concert was a tremendous success due to the hard work of the 消消犯, their teachers, and their conductors. Sachem’s 21 participants are truly among the top student musicians in New York State.

Congratulations to these talented musicians on this impressive achievement!

Students at both Sachem High 消消犯s kicked off the season of giving by collecting turkeys and Thanksgiving dinner sides to donate to families in need.

Students at Sachem High 消消犯 East assembled 400 boxes to donate to Sachem families. Each box was hand-checked for the 24 items needed to make a complete Thanksgiving dinner. Any extra items were donated to the Town of Brookhaven and Suffolk Independent Living Organization’s food pantry.

At Sachem High 消消犯 North, 消消犯 collected more than $4,000 and over 200 turkeys. They were able to provide more than 225 Sachem families with a full Thanksgiving dinner, along with hundreds of families in surrounding neighborhoods.

Students across the 消消犯 District celebrated the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday with hands-on activities, parades, performances and service projects. These authentic learning experiences got 消消犯 excited about Thanksgiving while teaching them about its history and traditions.

Students at Lynwood Avenue Elementary 消消犯 said, “Move over Macy’s!” as they held their own Thanksgiving parade on Nov. 21. Fourth and fifth graders paraded the hallways with handheld balloons and creative floats. The 消消犯 followed a parade route which first took them into the gymnasium filled with an audience of kindergarten, first and second grade 消消犯. Next, they marched to the second “grandstand” in the cafeteria where third graders and special guests including district administrators looked on. For the first time this year, the High 消消犯 East pep band and Sagamore Middle 消消犯 Arrowettes joined the elementary school 消消犯 for performances.
