Sensory Walks Promote Autism Acceptance

Students at both Waverly and Wenonah thumbnail257622

Sachem is celebrating Autism Acceptance Month throughout April and several buildings held integration events to raise awareness, celebrate differences and promote inclusivity.

On April 16, Wenonah Elementary School held its first Wenonah Walk, an outdoor, schoolwide sensory event. Students in special education classes were paired with their same-age peers to participate in sensory-based stations including a relay walk, bubbles, dance party, parachute games, chalk the walk and a sensory path. Each group of students rotated through the stations while interacting with each other. Ahead of the Wenonah Walk, students learned about autism and created posters of influential individuals with autism to hang throughout the halls.

Similarly, at Waverly Elementary School, fifth grade peer buddies educated the school community about autism. They pushed into classrooms to read the book, “All My Stripes,” then gave a presentation which included tips on how to be a good friend. The classroom visits ended with an art activity where students colored in puzzle pieces to be displayed in the lobby.

Waverly Elementary School held its sensory walk for all students on April 19. Students experienced a variety of stations including sensory tables and boards, bubbles, water activities, Play-Doh and bounce hopper balls.

Students at both Waverly and Wenonah were excited to step outside of the classroom for their respective sensory walks. They engaged their five senses while self-regulating during a fun, new event that brought both school communities together.

Sachem Raises Thousands to Support St. Baldrick’s

The Sachem Central School District is helping the fight against pediatric cancer by supporting the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Several school buildings came together for head-shaving events to raise funds for childhood cancer research, as well as awareness.

Seneca Middle School held its St. Baldrick’s event on March 18. Fourteen students and one teacher volunteered to shave their heads. The building raised nearly $14,300 in their efforts.

At Waverly Elementary School, six students and five adults including parents, Principal Kevin Tougher and school custodian Mr. Nick, shaved their heads during the building’s annual St. Baldrick’s event on March 22. Since 2015, Waverly students and staff have raised nearly $250,000 for the foundation. This year, the building raised more than $5,000 and honored Waverly’s own fifth grader, Justin Olsen. Olsen was diagnosed with a pediatric cancer in 2019 and had his final treatment in May 2021. He is doing incredibly well and was happy to participate in this year’s event.

Sagamore Middle School had nine “shavees” and raised over $10,000. Additionally, the building held a ceremony to honor the shavees and volunteers from all three Sachem Middle Schools.

Samoset Middle School rounded off the St. Baldrick’s Day events in Sachem on April 5. The building held three assemblies for each grade level, showcasing the incredible efforts of students and staff in fundraising for childhood cancer research. 20 students and staff members raised money for the cause, totaling over $16,000.
