AVA ARCERI ATTENDS NTDP CAMP

Some of the most talented U16 and U18 women's lacrosse players recently attended the National Team Development Program (NTDP) in Maryland and Smithtown East's Ava Arceri was one of them!

Ava, a senior midfielder, has committed to playing lax at Standford University next Fall.

The National Team Development Program is a three-phased process for high school-aged boys’ and girls’ players that leads to USA Select teams.

The ultimate goal of the NTDP is to provide high-level training for the nation’s top young players that will ultimately expand the talent pool for the U.S. national teams that participate in international World Lacrosse competitions.

Congratulations to Ava!

Summer Resiliency CAMP

Where else can you spend part of the Summer breakdancing and learning about mummies than the Summer Resiliency CAMP!?
(Character, Academics, Mindfulness, Preparedness)

The two-week CAMP recently concluded at Accompsett Middle School with an energizing celebration of students' choice genius hour projects. Projects ranged from exploring the mummification process to the history of break dancing, benefits of plants, the effects of music on mood and the effects of video games on mood

Participants engaged in student-led and teacher-led workshops that embedded learning standards across the content areas as well as the five SEL core competencies.

The CAMP experience concluded with the Sharatorium that celebrated the students' projects. Superintendent Mark Secaur made sure to pay a visit!
