A Walk for Unity

Syosset High School kicked off Spirit Week 2017 with its annual walkathon on the campus grounds. The entire student body, teachers and school staff walked in unison to raise money and awareness for tolerance education. Proceeds from the walk were donated to the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County in Glen Cove. Every year the center welcomes more than 38,000 visitors to its exhibits as well as participants of its educational programs.

Syosset High School students and staff have also been raising funds for hurricane relief efforts, including a bowlathon sponsored by the Interact Club. The school’s Awareness Club and GSA are also conducting fundraisers and different club booths at this weekend’s Student Government Carnival will also donate a portion of their proceeds to hurricane relief. 

In addition to the walkathon and carnival, other highlights of Spirit Week include a health fair, pep rally and the annual Homecoming game, scheduled for 1:30 pm this Saturday.
