Student Government Fest Celebrates and Showcases Syosset Talent

This spring, Syosset High School’s Student Government sponsored the second annual BravesFest, a community festival that celebrates everything about Syosset schools.  

Student Government partnered with the PTA and Syosset Teachers Association to continue the growth of this new tradition, hosting more than 700 community members who enjoyed over 40 carnival-style booths that were created and run by various student clubs, student groups, classes, athletic teams, PTA units and STA.  
The school’s Association of Creative Thespians also conducted a Renaissance Fair while AP students displayed their works. The cross-country/track team hosted a Miles For Smiles 1-mile run during the event, while the girls varsity soccer team mentored elementary student athletes and helped them sharpen their soccer skills on the playing field. The main stage hosted 40 student acts throughout the day while volunteer teachers and administrators played the role of sitting ducks in the very popular dunk tank. The Syosset Robotics team also displayed their ingenuity with some of their designs. The PTSA operated the concessions.
David Steinberg is the adviser to the Syosset High School Student Government. Funds raised through the event went to support the Student Activity Fund and VH-1 Save the Music, which supports youth music education programs.
