Congratulations to Birchwood 5th grader Sean O’Connor for winning the AAA School Safety Patrol for New York State! This award is given to a student who exemplifies leadership qualities, safety skills, school involvement, and volunteerism. It has been almost eleven years since a student from the South Huntington School District has won this award.

Safety is a commitment that Sean takes very seriously both in and outside of school. “The best part about being a safety patrol officer,” Sean stated, “is telling others how to be safe and teaching them why it is important to do so.” Even when he is at home, Sean reminds his parents and siblings to be safe. Sean is very active both in and outside of school, as he enjoys playing and watching soccer and rooting for his favorite team, Juventus. Sean loves to be a Safety Patrol Officer for Birchwood and is excited to keep leading others to be safe.
