Middle School Presents Commemorative Shovel to Sayville VFW

Donating a Commemorate Shovel
  • Last year, as part of Sayville Middle School’s Annual Veterans Day Tribute, the school community planted a commemorative tree in front of the school.  While this year, due to social-distancing restrictions, the Annual Veterans Day Tribute had to be canceled, that didn’t stop the Middle School from remembering our Veterans. In addition to preparing and posting a virtual, video presentation with music and speeches, the Middle School went a step farther. Representing the entire school community, Principal Dr. Joseph Castoro, Assistant Principal Brian Decker, and Technology teacher Jim McLaughlin made an extra special effort and stopped at the Sayville VFW. They presented the veterans with the “ceremonial shovel” used last year to plant the commemorative Veterans Day tree. The beautiful plaque was made by Mr. McLaughlin.
