Members of the National Junior High Society and Community Service Club from Accompsett Middle School recently spent the day at their local supermarket collecting items for those in need.

The student-volunteers enlisted the help of their community to collect items for hurricane victims in Puerto Rico on Dec. 2 by spending the day outside their local Stop & Shop. The students collected more than 25 boxes full of toiletry items and food as well as paper goods. Some shoppers donated money, which allowed the student-volunteers to shop for different items needed to help fill the boxes.

The district and its Parent-Teacher Associations, in partnership with the Smithtown Youth Bureau, Horizons Counseling and Education, Suffolk County Police Department and the Counter Drug Task Force, presented a Parent/Student University focusing on current drugs trends on Nov. 1 in the High School West auditorium.

Community members, parents and students came out to listen to the presentation on topics such as the dangers of alcohol abuse and vaping, social host laws, and what’s happening in the local community by Suffolk County Police Officer George Lynagh, Town of Smithtown youth services coordinator Kelly DeVito, Horizon Counseling and Education Center assistant director Patrice Levy and National Guard Counterdrug Task Force senior airman Gabriel Manzueta.

Before and after the presentation, community resources were available from local agents such as Project Presence, Inc., Families Anonymous, Tobacco Coalition of Long Island, LICADD, St. Patrick Youth, WellLife Network and YMCA Family Services. 

“It is an honor to work in a school district with such an invested community of parents, faculty and students,” said Siobhán Cassidy, Project Presence, Inc.’s director of professional development and practice. 

Throughout the evening, social-emotional workshops were conducted to offer parents tools to better connect. Parents learned about Smithtown Central School District’s social-emotional learning initiative and how they can partner with the schools at home. A parent/child yoga workshop gave participants the opportunity to increase body awareness and strengthen the parent/child connection. A mindfulness workshop taught parents how to be more present in their relationships with their child. The eating for energy workshop focused on how to reduce cravings, detoxify and find the top food categories for increasing energy.

Sixth-graders at Accompsett Middle School had a lesson in making their school a safer and healthier place thanks to a presentation by Billy Flash of the Sandy Hook Promise Program.

“Say Something” is a youth violence prevention program that teaches students how to protect themselves, their classmates and their community. During the presentation, which was sponsored by the school’s PTA Cultural Arts, students learned how to look for warning signs, signals and threats. They were taught to act immediately and take any threats seriously. Lastly, students learned they should say something to a trusted adult. 

The overall goal is to teach students how they can do their part to reduce violence, threats and tragic consequences. At the end of the presentation, students were asked to take a pledge to say something when they see something.
