The Sachem Central School District is showing its appreciation for the community’s first responders through a number of events. Many of the District’s elementary schools invited first responders to their buildings for celebrations and parades.

Students created posters and cards for police officers and firefighters to show thanks. At Merrimac Elementary School, fifth graders had a question-and-answer session with first responders to gain insight into their day-to-day routines. Nokomis students sang for their special guests, prior to students introducing their family member heroes to the crowd. Waverly held an appreciation breakfast for first responders before students cheered them on at a schoolwide parade. Similarly, Tamarac students participated in a siren parade and presented the First Responders Children’s Foundation with a check for $500.
