Retirement Rally for Rodrigues

The Sycamore Avenue Elementary School community recently celebrated long-time teacher Lorei Rodrigues, who will retire at the conclusion of the school year, with a car parade past her home. The Connetquot Central School District thanks Rodrigues for her hard work and dedication to her students and wishes her nothing but the best in her retirement.

Sycamore Song

Enjoy this beautiful and heartwarming virtually arranged song performed by the Sycamore Avenue Elementary School community.

According to music teacher Rachel White, "About 150 children and teachers learned the song through my tutorial and then recorded themselves (sometimes with a parent or big sister or brother helping). I then took these recordings and mixed them together to create our Sycamore voice. You will hear the students in solos, in grade-level groupings in dialogue with the voices of teachers and then all voices combined with a drum ensemble.

This was a labor of love, but it is something that I have always believed is the heart of music. It brings us together in the best and worst times. It helps us create and sustain community. At this time when we struggle with how to connect, I am so proud to show how music can bring us together in meaningful ways."
