High School East Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, under the guidance of advisers Connie Smith and Jaclyn Fettinger, hosted a virtual fruits and veggies challenge in March for National Nutrition Month.
The challenge was open to all students in Dogwood, Tackan, St. James and Mills Pond elementary schools in the Smithtown Central School District. Students tracked the amount of fruits and vegetables they ate during the month. The FCCLA chapter members kept track of their accomplishments and posted weekly updates and inspirational videos for the students.
The three participating schools ate a total of 6,008 servings of fruits and vegetables. A top class was named in each school: Ms. Baker’s class at Mills Pond Elementary, Ms. Horsfall’s class at St. James Elementary and Mr. Korba’s class at Dogwood Elementary. Mr. Korba’s class was named the top class out of all three schools. Each student who participated received a prize for their efforts and the top classes received a certificate and bracelet.
This year, 87 students from High School East and High School West’s School of Business competed in the New York DECA State Competition. While the competition was only online, the students still worked with advisers virtually to prepare and uploaded videos of their presentations to a portal, where they were reviewed by judges. East and West students received 66 medals and trophies, and 18 students qualified to attend the International Career Conference. Students will be competing virtually against all the top winners from across the globe.
There were more than 3,000 students from across the state competing. The competitions included business topics such as: marketing, finance, public relations, accounting and entrepreneurship. Students competed in either tests and role plays or written manuals and presentations. In addition to students placing in their various competitions, they also were awarded chapter recognition for Promotional, Community Service & Advocacy Campaign for Smithtown High School East and Community Service & Promotional Campaign for Smithtown High School West.
The district congratulates the following DECA National students: High School East: Thomas Callan, Lily Chai, Kaitlyn Doukas, Christopher Figueroa, Samantha Micozzi, Gabriella Milano, Megan Reilly, Shannon Roche, Thomas Russo and Anthony Spiezio.

Students and staff at High School East celebrated National Foreign Language Week from March 7-13 with activities centered around their languages of study and the importance of person-to-person communication. This year’s theme was “Open Your Mind to Language.”
The hallways and doorways in the foreign language wing were decorated to reflect the different countries. Students created a showcase display in the hallway celebrating their love of languages. In addition to creative lessons throughout the week, the foreign language students participated in a variety of crafts, a scavenger hunt and recreated famous works of art.
