Staff and students throughout the district recently commemorated those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001 by means of various assemblies and musical events. 

Susan White, principal of John Pearl Elementary School, joined students and staff in celebrating Patriot Day on Sept. 12 during an in-school assembly. Fifth-grade students from Annamarie Damore’s and Jeanne Cardone’s classes led the attendees in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, dressed in their colorful red, white and blue outfits. Additionally, the students sang patriotic songs, including “Nothing More” by The Alternate Routes and the John Pearl School song.

Under the guidance of music teacher Rachel White, Sycamore Avenue School Chorus members lent their vocal talents to those in attendance at the Common Ground in Sayville’s Rotary Park, where they sang a number of heartfelt and inspiring songs. Additionally, Ms. White performed several songs on her own, further uplifting the spirits of the attendees. 

Additionally, students from Connetquot High School’s phenomenal a capella group “The 7th Street Singers” performed a stunning rendition of the national anthem at the Lakeland Fire Department’s 9/11 ceremony.
