  1. Congratulations to everyone who participated in our 2nd Annual Night of the Arts.  I am sorry to have missed it as I heard it was superb!  Thank you to everyone who performed and contributed.  A special thank you to the Student Council and advisor, Mr. Robbat who organized the event.  I heard our new principal, Mr. Mahoney was in attendance and I’m sure he was impressed!

  1. Thank you to the great team who presented at the School Committee last week.  Mrs. Kathleen Grace and Ms. Zampitella brought our great team of:  Viktor Davis, Gabriel de Oliviera, David Joseph, Winnie Li, and Lizzie Splaine.  The team represented TEAM Sachem well by reviewing our new CTC space and how they are using our new equipment.

  1. We have hearing assistive equipment for our Auditorium available.  It will be housed in the office area.  If your student (or even someone you know at a public event) can benefit from the use of such equipment, please have them tell their teacher or office staff and we will be sure to assist.  In addition, if it is an evening event, the custodians are aware of the equipment and will be able to assist.  

  1. Please note that our handicapped parking spots in the front of the building are reserved for handicapped vehicles ONLY.  Please do not pull into them for live, short or long term parking.  We do realize that our parking is extremely limited during construction and we appreciate your attention to leaving parking spaces open to staff, students, and guests who require the spaces.

  1. We would like all parents of seniors to attend a meeting on April 26 at 7:00 pm in the auditorium.  This all important meeting will be to review Senior Week Activities leading up to and including Graduation and the All Night Party.  We will be meeting with seniors that morning to review our expectations, as well.  Our goals are  that we have a fun and memorable week and that our students will exercise judgement to keep everyone safe!
