Celebrating Senior Class Breakfast
For twenty-eight years, the Sayville Senior Class Breakfast has given the graduating class a break in their hectic schedules and time to share memories. What better day to reflect and give thanks than the day before Thanksgiving? Originally launched by Senior Class Advisor Mrs. Marie Joost-Cox and former High School Principal Joseph Buderman, Senior Breakfast has been both a tradition and a privilege enjoyed by generations of Sayville students ever since.
This year was no different. The Class of 2016 enjoyed a nourishing morning meal on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, provided by Parkville Deli. Steaming trays of everyone’s favorites: bacon, eggs, omelets, French toast, home fries, along with bagels, fresh fruit with yogurt, juice, coffee, and all the trimmings were served by volunteer Senior Class parents.
Under the guidance of Senior Class of 2016 Advisors Evan Hammer and Mike Pace, the Breakfast Committee decorated the cafeteria with streamers, golden table clothes, balloons, and (plastic) champagne-glass centerpieces filled with Hersey kisses. Once “Class Superlatives” were announced during which each student named received a cap with the description, the breakfast ended with a traditional slide show.
