Honoring St. James ES Teacher’s Memory

High School West held the ninth annual Play 4 the Cure field hockey game honoring the memory of St. James Elementary School teacher Sara Long Harte on Sept. 28. Each year, Smithtown High School West girls field hockey team dedicate a game to Ms. Harte, who passed away from breast cancer nine years ago. Ms. Harte taught at St. James Elementary School, the same school she attended as a child. Her impact throughout the community lives on today through a scholarship fund, a memorial garden and a handcrafted picket fence in front of St. James Elementary, which was built in her honor by a former student.
