Members of the Kids Care Club at Tamarac Elementary School spread the love this February by working on blanket donations. Students collaborated to make no-sew blankets during their before-school meetings. The blankets were donated to Good Samaritan University Hospital and the Islip Animal Shelter. Students were eager to help people, and animals, in the community through this service-learning project.

Students and staff across the Sachem Central School District celebrated P.S. I Love You Day on Feb. 9. Buildings across the district were decorated in purple as the Sachem community dressed in the color to spread the message of the annual day – to promote love, support and end the stigma surrounding mental health.

Students embraced Sachem’s Culture of Care through P.S. I Love You Day activities including writing kind notes to each other, creating displays of love and positivity to hang in the hallways and working with peer educators from both high schools. Additionally, several buildings held spirit weeks to kick off the P.S. I Love You Day festivities and bring school communities together.

The Sachem Public Library recently visited Tamarac Elementary School for a week of hands-on, STEAM activities. The library provided materials to create different stations for students of all grade levels to rotate through, each focusing on science, technology, engineering, art or math. Students made magnet-block creations, drew on Osmo tablets, used straw connectors, built Legos and drove robots.

The activities allowed students to collaborate with one another while developing their creativity, problem-solving and critical thinking skills outside the typical classroom setting.

The ALS Ride for Life organization visited Tamarac Elementary School on Jan. 19, ahead of its flagship event this spring. Members of the organization and patients taught students about ALS and how they advocate to raise funding and awareness in the fight against the disease.

Students then learned about how the Ride for Life started in 1997 and has grown since. Last year, the Ride for Life made stops at both Sachem high schools, Sagamore Middle School, Tamarac Elementary School and Merrimac Elementary School. Sachem looks forward to welcoming the Ride for Life back this year.
