It sure was busy last week in the South Huntington school community, and this past weekend brought continued energy as our Booster Club dedicated an entire Saturday to the Silas, Stimson, Walt Whitman “3-on-3 Fundraising Basketball Tournament.” Once again, this small but committed group of volunteers generated enthusiasm for healthy competition, while simultaneously raising funds to support students and programs throughout the district.

The weekend was not complete until our African American History Club, under the direction of Ms. Cynthia Quinlan, hosted "Rock the Shelter" in the Walt Whitman Performing Arts Center. Principal Acker literally beamed with pride as her students and staffed worked cooperatively with the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless to provide life-changing help for those in desperate need.
