Members of the boys cross-country team recently volunteered their time at Island Harvest’s farm in Brentwood. Joined by coaches Peter Schieck and Mark Jackett, the boys learned about Island Harvest from staff member Hillary Hess. The team helped pull weeds in between the rows of vegetables and harvested some zucchini and eggplant. Island Harvest is the largest hunger relief organization on Long Island, serving more than 300,000 Long Islanders annually, including adults, children, families, seniors, and veterans, through their network of approximately 570 food pantries, soup kitchens, and other emergency programs.

High School East art teacher Dianne Shanian, along with High School West student Alexandria Santoro (center) and High School East student Brianna Foster (right), worked together to paint a vibrant design on the wall outside of St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center’s new rock garden. Inspired by the song lyrics from “Lean on Me,” the trio painted the wall before the garden was officially unveiled on July 26. Nursing staff painted positive messages on rocks that were donated to the hospital and placed in the bed of the garden.
