Saying Something Important at the MS

Saying Something Important at the MS thumbnail114319

To emphasize the East Islip school community’s commitment to supporting the Sandy Hook Promise movement to save lives and protect all students from harm, eighth-graders Kaylee Norton and Marisa Triolo recently read important morning announcements each day at the middle school during Say Something Week. Like many other participating students, the pair wore green in support of the cause. Norton and Triolo told their classmates, “If you see something, say something,” and urged them, “be an upstander not a bystander.”

“This was a very important week that sent a very important message,” said Triolo. “Sandy Hook made many people sad for the lives lost, but it also made others scared, wondering if their school was next. Little did everyone know things like Sandy Hook can be prevented by saying something when you see something. If you see something that could be concerning, you should tell a trusted adult. If you tell a trusted adult, they might be able to do something to help someone or prevent something. If you see a warning sign, you especially need to tell a trusted adult. Say Something Week was very powerful.”
