On Monday afternoon, Smithtown West held it's 13th annual Play 4 The Cure field hockey game honoring the memory of St. James Elementary School teacher Sara Long Harte.
Each year Smithtown West team dedicates this game to Sarah, who passed away due to breast cancer.
Sara taught at St. James Elementary School, the very same Elementary school where she attended as a child, for eight years. Her immeasurable impact throughout the community in such a short period lives on today through a Scholarship Fund, a Memorial Garden and a hand-crafted picket fence in front of the St. James Elementary School which was built to honor her by a former student.
Her dedication to her students, charity work with the Sunrise Fund for Childhood Cancer and her unending labor of love for this community will never be forgotten.
Pictured in the photos are West field hockey seniors with Sara's mom Chrissy Long,
the St. James Elementary singers and music teacher Christa Braunreuther.
The students in Mr. Warner’s science class at High School West spent the day on a marine research vessel in Shinnecock Bay through SUNY Stony Brook out of Southampton. The students studied the abiotic and biotic factors of the surrounding waters. Students took salinity samples, sediment samples, temperatures of various depths in the water, in addition to the wind speed and air temperature.
The highlight of the trip was when they set out a net to capture various animals and they pulled in a juvenile dogfish shark. They also captured various crabs, fish, jellies, and shrimp.

Students at High School East and High School West are participating in a new biology Medical Interventions class under Project Lead The Way.
In this course, students explore concepts of biology and medicine as they take on roles of different medical professionals to solve real-world problems.
The students are currently investigating an outbreak at a college and first ran a PCR on the first student to come to the college doctor and found out she has meningitis.
In the lab they are running an ELISA test to see if the other students are also sick from the same pathogen and to what concentration they have the pathogen.
Both tests have been used over the past few years for Covid. The classes are led by Dr. Christian at HSE and Ms. Marron at HSW.
