Briarcliff Update – August 2019

Over the last 18 months the Shoreham-Wading River School District has conducted a series of public discussions about the Briarcliff building. During these roundtables and forums, community members provided input about the matter and suggestions for possible future use of the facility. As a result of these conversations, the Board of Education approved the recommendation to explore the sale and/or lease of the Briarcliff property.

At the August 20th Board of Education meeting, as a result of a request for proposal process, a contract was awarded to Nest Seekers International Realtors to facilitate the sale/lease process with interested parties. Nest Seekers will work closely with the BOE and community at all stages of the process.
 

Fitness Center Update – August 2019

At the August 20th Board of Education meeting, the current state of the fitness center located on the High School property was again discussed and the Board reviewed the plan to convert the space into a wrestling center and transform the auxiliary gym into a multi-use fitness center to accommodate open floor exercise as well as strength conditioning. Please visit the Board of Education meeting videos and transcript section of the District website to learn more about this project.

Three Shoreham-Wading River High School students took part in several innovative programs over the summer that culminated with a poster session and closing ceremony for the Brookhaven National Laboratory High Research School Program on August 15.

Torre Ann Parrinello, Jalal Sawas and Wilson Schmalzle had an opportunity to showcase their ongoing research projects to their peers and BNL’s scientific community. Torre Ann and Jalal took part in the world-renowned institution’s Student Partnerships for Advanced Research and Knowledge program, which is a six-week research collaboration that complements the Shoreham-Wading River High School Science Research curriculum content taught by Dana Schaefer. Wilson’s six-week, highly competitive educational research project paired him with a BNL scientist from the Superconducting Magnet Division. The students were accompanied by Shoreham-Wading River School District’s Director of STEM Dr. Amy Meyer and Mrs. Schaefer.
