On Monday, November 21, 2016, SGO co-adviser Ms. Klein and five of the SHS Student Government members participated in the NYS Counsel on Leadership and Student Activities State conference held at the Honors Haven Resort in Ellenville, NY.

As part of group community service project, the students made a fleece blanket for the Blythedale Children's Hospital.
