Jelly Bean Fundraiser
A mathematical estimation game held during lunchtime helped Port Jefferson Middle School Student Council members raise $100 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
During a two-week period, the students held a contest where their peers could pay $1 to guess how many jellybeans were in a jar. At the conclusion of the contest, the winner received the jar of jellybeans along with a $10 iTunes gift card. The fundraiser was just one of several the Student Council held this year.
Lessons in Compassion
Eleven high school students learned to inspire their peers using compassion during a full-day workshop at Bay Shore High School on April 1.
Throughout the sixth annual Suffolk County High School Principals Association seminar, “Compassion Without Borders,” the Port Jefferson students were introduced to several speakers and made many new friends.
The event brought together students designated as leaders from 30 high schools across Long Island. Port Jefferson participants included Lexi Alfeo, Abigail Bossert, Tatum Hurney, Emma Martin, Sterling Nenninger, Liane Russel, Corinne Scannell, Emma Schoepflin, Billy Witrock, JiWon Woo and Emily Zygula.
