Thank you to our High School Science Research students who visited Wading River School fifth-graders to help support students learning in the Students Spaceflights Experiments Program, an initiative provided through the National Center for Earth and Space Science Exploration. The students discussed their research work to date as they move forward in this unique collaborative effort within our schools!

A Fond Farewell

Congratulations to Ms. Janice Seus on her retirement! Since 2006, Ms. Seus has been the District Clerk for the Shoreham Wading River School District. In that time, she has worked with four superintendents, numerous Board of Education trustees and countless residents and parents to connect them with the right information or right person in order to help them. Her professionalism extends from her leadership of the entire district budget and trustee voting process to welcoming residents who attend Board of Education meetings to address the trustees. Ms. Seus has been a tremendous asset to the community, schools, parents, staff and students. She will be incredibly missed by the Board of Education and all of us here in the Shoreham-Wading River School District. We wish her the best of times in her retirement!

Analyzing Physical Evidence at SWR HS

Students in Mr. Robert Marino’s forensic science class were introduced to Locard's exchange principle during a recent lab. A pioneer in forensic science, Dr. Edmond Locard believed that when a criminal or person came in contact with an object or person, a cross-transfer of evidence occurred. Mr. Marino asked students to wear a clean T-shirt that was washed separately for one day and then packaged in a Ziploc bag. The students were tasked with examining each shirt for any fragmentary transfers of fibers, hairs, wood shavings, metal filings, tidbits of paper, or any small, lightweight item that adheres to the donor object.
