The Huntington Anti BiasTask Force and the Suffolk Y JCC recently brought Elwood-John H. Glenn High School students together through the Social Justice Ambassadors Program. School social worker Joanna Sepp and foreign language teacher Alessia Franco vetted select students to participate in six meetings that would empower them with the tools and knowledge they needed to be leaders and ambassadors of justice in their school. Students from the Harborfields, Huntington and South Huntington school districts also participated. 

The ambassadors gathered for the meetings at the Suffolk Y JCC  in Commack, exploring topics such as bias, resources and strategies to combat bias and inequality, and worked collaboratively to develop a project to share their knowledge with their school. Guest speaker and Holocaust survivor Werner Reich, ERASE Racism’s Nicole Grennan and community activist Joselo Lucero also addressed the students in attendance.

“Our students have decided to turnkey what they learned and present it to the students at the elementary schools and the middle school,” Sepp said. “The students are working on tailoring the presentations to the age groups and hope to be ready to roll it out in the fall of 2022.”

Guided by adviser Allen Epstein, the Social Studies Club at Elwood-John H. Glenn High School recently held a “pie in the face” contest fundraiser for the United Way nonprofit, raising $500 in donations. A United Way representative later visited the school for a check presentation.

“This was a really successful fundraiser for John Glenn,” said Social Studies Club Vice President Sumayah Raza. “Students from every grade donated not only to nominate a teacher, but to show their support for a great cause, the United Way. We couldn’t be prouder.”

The entire Elwood school community gathered outside John H. Glenn High School on April 28 to enjoy Health and Wellness Community Day. This year’s program featured a competitive mile race and wellness walk; kan jam and corn- hole contests; inflatable carnival games and slides; numerous varsity and JV sports games to view including baseball, softball, tennis and lacrosse; and the John Glenn High School Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

“Holding Community Day for our students and their families gives us a chance to strengthen our bonds and promote wellness,” Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Bossert said. “It was a perfect day for everyone in our community to come together and celebrate what makes this a wonderful school district.”
