BOE Recognizes Runners

  • Sayville Board Of Education Recognizes Ninety-Three

    Sayville Students and Staff who participated in the 2007 Sayville Summer Series


    Last spring, the Sayville School District had invited students and staff of all ages to run or walk in the 2007 Sayville Summer Series, with the additional incentive that participants would receive Board of Education recognition. (See previous article, “FROM All WALKS OF LIFE,” Web Highlights, September 2007 Archive.)


    Ninety-three responded to this call for wellness.


    During the summer, Sayville Personnel Director Rosemary Camilleri, both an accomplished runner and participant of the Summer Series herself, had “tracked” the students and staff who logged in for each of the four events.


    The list of participants was impressive. (see below pdf.)


    As promised, these 2007 Summer Series participants were invited to the November 8th Sayville Board of Education meeting to receive their citations.


    After thanking the BOE for their support, Ms. Camilleri invited each building principal to announce their students and staff members who accepted the challenge to run or walk in the 2007 Summer Series.


    In addition, Ms. Camilleri highlighted for the Board some of the runners’ accomplishments.

    1. Youngest Runner was Lincoln Avenue’s Gracie Scribner, 7 years old.
    2. High School Technology Teacher Rick Caskey placed Fourth overall in his age group of 45 runners.
    3. Lincoln Avenue Ms. Barbara Barone took 2nd overall in her age group of 75 runners.
    4. In the Male 1-14 age group, out of 66 runners: Middle School’s Kevin Hart (14) placed 3rd; Shane Sullivan (11) placed 4th; and Pat Smith (11) placed 1st.
    5. In the Female 1-14 age group, out of 48 runners: Sarah Pellegrini (14) placed 2nd; Erin MacDonnell (11) placed 3rd, Kayleigh Mullaney (10) placed 4th; Kerry Barret (10) placed 5th; and Mary Barrett (14) placed 1st overall in the age group and 4th overall on Long Island
    6. Other participants included Sayville Board Member Keith Kolar, and Kathy Finn, secretary to Assistant Superintendent John Belmonte.


    In all weather they came out to run or walk in at least one of the four races, proving they were ready and fit to accept the challenge. Congratulations to all the Sayville students and staff who strutted their stuff for worthy causes.
