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!

Warren Reich speaking to students

The Smithtown community is sad to learn of the passing of Holocaust survivor Mr. Werner Reich.

Werner had visited Smithtown schools on an annual basis for many years. At Accompsett Middle School he spoke to 8th grade students about tolerance, understanding, and being a JUST person through your actions (J.U.S.T. Judge the Situation, Understand the Problem, Solve Take Action).

Werner spoke to the students about what he has learned in his life experiences as a Holocaust survivor. In the past, Mr. Reich has presented at both Smithtown High School East and West for their Holocaust Remembrance Days.

Mr. Reich was 94 years old.
