Virtual Meet With Ukrainian Citizen

“In the war, everything is scary.”

Those were the words of Ukrainian screenwriter and teacher, Oksana Artemenko as she spoke to Great Hollow Middle School seventh and eighth graders Wednesday morning.
Oksana was able to speak to Ms. Fisk's social studies classes via google meet, just hours after she said missiles struck Ukraine causing her home to lose electricity.
Ms. Artemenko discussed a variety of topics about Ukrainian culture and society and shared her experiences navigating life during the ongoing war.
Ms. Fisk began a friendship with Oksana this past summer when she began teaching her the English language as part of the ENGin volunteer organization.
Oksana and other Ukrainian citizens had been unable to attend language classes in Ukraine due to the ongoing war.

Principal John Scomillio and Director of Social Studies Charles Benvenuto attended the virtual meetings.

Great Hollow Middle School Math Teacher Assistant Angela Morgan had a very tearful and happy Friday morning!

Angela was surprised by her students, teachers and faculty with a "Thank You" party honoring her husband, Sergeant Jonathan Morgan, who is deployed overseas until June 2023. Sergeant Morgan is a Crew Chief for the Blackhawks.

Principal John Scomillio joined the celebration and during his morning announcements said, "Ms. Morgan, your husband's bravery, sacrifice and strength do not go unnoticed, and we will always be indebted to you and your family for all that you have sacrificed for our country."

Principal Scomillio also added that students and staff at Great Hollow will continue to wear red each Friday to show their thankfulness and support to the Morgan family. 

To top the morning off, Angela was able to FaceTime with her husband and show him the celebration!

BEACH CLEANUP AT SUNKEN MEADOW

The Smithtown Beach Clean-Up at Sunken Meadow State Park was a huge success this past Saturday.

More than 100 people came out representing every school in the district! Students and teachers acted as citizen scientists, picking up 192 pounds of trash and documented what kind it was. That information will be added to the database that follows trends in trash.
Thank you to Lauren Hoffman, HSW teacher and Environmental Club advisor, who organized the day with her club. AMSEAS (Atlantic Marine Conservation Society) and the Smithtown Green Team was there with buckets and pickers and gloves.
Lots of Smithtown pride represented!

SMITHTOWN 2027 STRATEGIC PLAN

SMITHTOWN 2027 STRATEGIC PLAN BANNER thumbnail228276
SMITHTOWN 2027 STRATEGIC PLAN

We are very proud to present the Smithtown 2027 Strategic Plan to the school community. For the past 20 months, two Stakeholder Planning Teams consisting of students, parents, community members, and District staff have worked to identify the goals that will guide the district for the next five years. The initiative began with the development and administration of a survey to gather the thoughts and opinions of the entire Smithtown school community. We were very pleased and thankful that well over 4,000 people took the time to complete the survey. The results of these surveys served as the baseline for developing the strategic plan and the district’s revised mission, vision, beliefs, and goals moving forward.
The five strategic goals guiding us into the future are:
• Academic Achievement and Growth for Each Student
Our students are provided high-quality instruction and support to ensure the academic growth of each student and prepare them to succeed in their chosen path beyond high school.
• Student Belonging and Well-being
Our students are provided a safe and supportive environment and demonstrate skills and attributes to cope with life challenges and achieve personal well-being.
• Positive Working Environment and Staff Engagement
Our staff feel valued, are fully invested in students’ success, and feel that they receive the support they need to be highly effective employees.
• Stakeholder Involvement and Community Collaboration
Our families and community members are valued and collaborative partners in promoting student success.
• District and School Effectiveness and Efficiency
Our resources are maximized to achieve our strategic goals and provide efficient and cost-effective operations, systems, and services.

More information on strategies and actions to achieve these goals, as well as how we will measure success, can be found in the full strategic plan. You can access the 2022-2027 Smithtown Central School District Strategic Plan HERE.

GREAT HOLLOW VS CANCER

More than $3,000 was raised Thursday afternoon by the Great Hollow Middle School fundraiser, Great Hollow vs Cancer.
Organized by Great Hollow Middle School field hockey coach Colleen McKillop, the field hockey team held a scrimmage against Accompsett MS, while the Great Hollow football and boys and girls soccer teams played games.

"It was an amazing afternoon to help kids with cancer as the Smithtown community came together to help one of our own, Chase Turano.” said McKillop.
“Chase passed away this past summer after a long battle with brain cancer. His parents and sister were in attendance and were most grateful for the support of the Great Hollow Middle School students, faculty and staff. The money raised will go to The Sunrise Association, which helps kids like Chase, and their siblings attend camp in the summer."

The Great Hollow kickline and cheerleading teams also performed, as did the cheerleading team from Smithtown High School West.
Donations came from students, teachers, staff and parents.
Since beginning back in 2015, more than $13,000 has been raised!
