Stimson’s School-based Management Team (SBM) has been very busy over the past couple of months, and, along with the Stimson community, is credited for adopting the Lindenhurst Middle School after they were devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

“Our SBM team adopted Lindenhurst Middle School in an effort to provide relief to the families devastated by the storm,” said Stimson Principal Ms. Faye Robins. “Through the SBM’s fundraising efforts, over $1,000 was raised, along with a minibus full of supplies and sporting goods. On April 5th, we had the pleasure of delivering all of it to Lindenhurst, where we were met by Principal Frank Naccarato and students and staff from Lindenhurst’s Middle School. The gratification we felt is beyond expression.”

Principal Robins would like to thank her SBM team of MaryEllen Jaworski, Kathy O’Donohue, Nancy Gray, Norma Ferrante, Rob Bilicki, Rosa Kazandjian, Emily Blank, Michael Giarizzo, and Noelle Bryggman for working so closely to get this done. “Thanks also to our two winning homerooms--Ms. Scavo’s and Ms. Daniello’s--for successfully raising the most to support this worthwhile endeavor,” added Principal Robins.

“This means so much, to have communities like Stimson come together to help us out of a bad situation,” said Principal Naccarato. “Things were very grave here for a while. A lot of people lost their homes, and many lost everything they had. A lot of our kids really struggled, but because of districts like South Huntington that took up our cause, things are so much better now.”

A very special thank you to the following students who loaded the minibus at Stimson: Andrew Avila, Farrell Blum, Erika Lopez, Edward Nitkewicz, Marissa Pastore, Joseph Pecorella, Joshua Ramtahal, Daniel Sgaraglio, Sean Smith, and Dennis Sposato. Additionaly Principal Robins would like to acknowledge the follow staff members who’s help made the day possible: Sandra Adebola, Laura Carrano, Barbara Costa, Shari Daniello, Cheryl Murphy, Margaret  O'Brien, Margaret  Vetter, and Bettina Wright.
