The Bayport-Blue Point School District celebrated the accomplishments of both staff and students during the April 10 Board of Education meeting. 

To begin the night’s celebrations, Bayport-Blue Point Superintendent of Schools Dr. Timothy Hearney announced that Academy Street Elementary School psychologist Sebastien Saylor was chosen as February’s Teacher of the Month, and he expressed his gratitude toward Mr. Saylor’s services to the district. 

Additionally, student-participants of this year’s “Phantom Challenge” event were on hand to receive praise from the Board of Education for their public speaking skills and ability to pitch their own invention to school staff and administrators. The Board congratulated James Wilson Young Middle School students Taylor DiBiase and Maggie Yost (first place) Caroline Lewkowicz and Erin Wuestmann (second place) and Shaun Murphy (third place) as well as Bayport-Blue Point High School students Margaret Ross (first place) Shannon Conrad and Kevin Polanish (second place) and Elizabeth Auwaerter (third place).

During their highly successful trip, the team secured four medals in the categories “Write It, Do It,” “Wright Stuff,” “Battery Buggy” and “Quiz Bowl.”
