Italian Fat Tuesday Celebrated at Sachem’s Middle Schools

In honor of ‘Fat Tuesday’ (‘mardi gras’ to most but martedi grasso to Italians) and the carnival season, the 7th grade Italian classes at all middle schools in the district learned about ‘Carnevale’ and how it was celebrated hundreds of years ago in various cities throughout Italy. Students watched videos about the history of ‘Carnevale’, with a focus on Venice, which is the most well-known for its costumes and masks and also about how most traditions are still celebrated in modern times. Our students made masks which represented the alter ego they decided to portray during our masquerade ball and interviewed one another in the target language. They also celebrated ‘Fat Tuesday’ with a party of their own, at which they sampled delicious Italian food typical of ‘Carnevale’. The 7th graders had a blast and their favorite part was definitely watching the video of the Battle of Oranges (Battaglia delle Arance), which takes place every year in the small, northern Italian city of Ivrea.


Amazing Art Displays

by Mahdi Hassanali

Did you notice some of the great art that is being displayed all across the school? Examples of this are the beautiful tree, the bulletin board displays, and the “Pop Up Gallery” that Ms.Grempel and Mrs. Parisi have been working on. Sagamore is extremely lucky to have these two art teachers, who are incredibly talented and have their mind set on making our school a better place. These extraordinary pieces shown below are made by students all across the building who have put in the time and effort to make them. Ms.Grempel and Mrs.Parisi have been hard at work trying to introduce art into our lives and definitely deserve a thank you. Next time you see one of these talented women, be sure to thank them for all they’ve done for our school.  


Sagamore Writers

Sagamore Writers photo
Twenty talented Sagamore 7th graders are published authors.  Their "Stranger Sagas" short stories were selected by the Young Writers Association, and published in an anthology of writers from New York.  Their stories are very creative and suspenseful.  We are very proud of their accomplishments!  If anyone would like to purchase a copy, please contact Mrs. Gennosa at Sagamore Middle School.
