Sachem Celebrates Autism Awareness and Acceptance

Throughout April, the Sachem Central School District celebrated World Autism Month. Students and staff participated in several activities to teach one another about autism spectrum disorder and created displays to promote awareness.

Fifth grade peer buddies at Waverly Elementary School pushed into classes to teach their peers about autism. They gave interactive presentations to help students learn how to be a friend to those who learn and communicate differently. Additionally, classes collaborated during physical education to participate in sensory-friendly exercises. Through these activities, Waverly promoted inclusivity throughout the building.

At Wenonah Elementary School, students created colorful project hallway displays to promote autism acceptance. The building also held an Autism Acceptance Month T-Shirt Design contest. Fifth grader Brendan Collins won with his design that read, “I’m Unstoppable.” Wenonah staff members came together to wear the shirt on April 28.

On April 30, more than 30 staff members from Chippewa Elementary School and their families participated in the EJ Autism Foundation four-mile walk in East Islip. The organization supports programs and schools across Long Island that work with children who have autism.

Waverly Artists go Head-to-Head in ‘Chopped’ Competition

Teams of fifth grade artists at Waverly Elementary School competed against each other and the clock during the Art Chopped Finals. The competition, led by art teacher Susan Kinsey, challenges teams of three to use mystery art supplies to create a project following a given theme. The concept is based off the popular Food Network show, “Chopped.”

At the start of each of the three rounds, students were given a mystery box of supplies. In each round, they had to use all of the art media to create a project under a tight time limit. The first round they were challenged with creating a landscape, the second round they created group self-portraits and the final round challenged them to follow the theme, “In the future.”

Once the timer went off, a panel of judges reviewed the projects and gave scores based on craftsmanship, creativity, main objective and teamwork. Teams were eliminated based on the judges’ decision. The “Coco Colers” came out on top and won this year’s competition.
