PUMPKIN DAY AT ST. JAMES ELEMENTARY

Fourth grade students at St. James Elementary School celebrated Pumpkin Day with parents teaming up with children for a few hours of fun, messy, learning activities! Many of the activities reinforced mathematical and science concepts reviewed in class. Each team made predictions and then figured out the volume of their pumpkin and the mass of their pumpkins’ seeds.
When all the scientific analysis was complete, each team finished carving their pumpkin to create festive jack-o-lanterns. Each student brought home a carved or decorated pumpkin. Through sticky hands, laughter, and fun, scientific discoveries were made by all!

BEACH CLEANUP AT SUNKEN MEADOW

The Smithtown Beach Clean-Up at Sunken Meadow State Park was a huge success this past Saturday.

More than 100 people came out representing every school in the district! Students and teachers acted as citizen scientists, picking up 192 pounds of trash and documented what kind it was. That information will be added to the database that follows trends in trash.
Thank you to Lauren Hoffman, HSW teacher and Environmental Club advisor, who organized the day with her club. AMSEAS (Atlantic Marine Conservation Society) and the Smithtown Green Team was there with buckets and pickers and gloves.
Lots of Smithtown pride represented!

APPLE DAY AT SJE!

Kindergarten students at St. James Elementary School have been reading and investigating all about a fall fruit...it's crunchy, juicy and delicious. You guessed it, it's an apple! 

Friday was Apple Day at SJE.
The Kindergarteners explored the insides of apples, measured and weighed apples (some on their heads) and created apple crafts to celebrate their learning. Don't forget...an apple a day keeps the doctor away!

SMITHTOWN 2027 STRATEGIC PLAN

SMITHTOWN 2027 STRATEGIC PLAN BANNER thumbnail228276
SMITHTOWN 2027 STRATEGIC PLAN

We are very proud to present the Smithtown 2027 Strategic Plan to the school community. For the past 20 months, two Stakeholder Planning Teams consisting of students, parents, community members, and District staff have worked to identify the goals that will guide the district for the next five years. The initiative began with the development and administration of a survey to gather the thoughts and opinions of the entire Smithtown school community. We were very pleased and thankful that well over 4,000 people took the time to complete the survey. The results of these surveys served as the baseline for developing the strategic plan and the district’s revised mission, vision, beliefs, and goals moving forward.
The five strategic goals guiding us into the future are:
• Academic Achievement and Growth for Each Student
Our students are provided high-quality instruction and support to ensure the academic growth of each student and prepare them to succeed in their chosen path beyond high school.
• Student Belonging and Well-being
Our students are provided a safe and supportive environment and demonstrate skills and attributes to cope with life challenges and achieve personal well-being.
• Positive Working Environment and Staff Engagement
Our staff feel valued, are fully invested in students’ success, and feel that they receive the support they need to be highly effective employees.
• Stakeholder Involvement and Community Collaboration
Our families and community members are valued and collaborative partners in promoting student success.
• District and School Effectiveness and Efficiency
Our resources are maximized to achieve our strategic goals and provide efficient and cost-effective operations, systems, and services.

More information on strategies and actions to achieve these goals, as well as how we will measure success, can be found in the full strategic plan. You can access the 2022-2027 Smithtown Central School District Strategic Plan HERE.

MEMORIAL FIELD HOCKEY GAME FOR SARA LONG HARTE


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.
