CELEBRATING OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS
The challenges of 2020 may have changed the look of most awards ceremonies, but there are creative ways to give recognition for excellence to those who deserve it.
This past spring, the COVID-19 Pandemic had postponed the 2020 National Junior Honor Society induction ceremony at Sayville Middle School. However, the Middle School recently created a virtual ceremony that was no less rewarding for the honors it bestowed on each deserving student. Middle School Principal Dr. Joseph Castoro and NJHS advisor Mrs. Dawn Lloyd Matthews, along with NJHS committee for the Sayville Middle School Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society, staged a presentation that abided by social distancing restrictions. This ceremony had been recorded (see above) and posted to share with the Sayville Community. Leading the pledge was Assistant Principal Brian Decker; speaking about the attributes of Scholarship, Leadership, Character, Citizenship, and Service were the following NJHS Committee members respectively: Mrs. Kristin Chirichella, Ms. Jen Chapman, Ms. Kellie Lindskog, Mrs. Lauren Cierski and Mrs. Cathy Ward.
Congratulations to the following inductees:
