Miller Place Goes Gold for Pediatric Cancer Awareness

Miller Place High School football players and cheerleaders recently wore gold to their football game against Port Jefferson to support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The event was in honor of Tommy Scully, a Miller Place student who passed away last year at the age of 12 due to a brain tumor. The players wore gold socks and the cheerleaders wore gold ribbons to show their support for cancer research. By participating in this event, Miller Place School District students learned to give back to their community and support those suffering from pediatric cancer.

Miller Place School District Celebrates 2017-2018 Homecoming

The Miller Place School District’s Miller Place High School recently held its annual homecoming parade and football game to celebrate the spirit and excitement of the Miller Place community. The parade featured student-designed and decorated floats celebrating the history and culture of great American cities. Homecoming King Matthew Buscemi and Homecoming Queen Moksha Mehra rode in the senior class’s New Orleans-themed float.

The senior class was named the winners of a competition between the grades for the most innovative homecoming float, best hallway decorations, displaying the most class spirit, the most fundraising and collected the most goods for a food and goods drive. As the first place recipients, the senior class received $500 in prize money from the Student Council funds. During the homecoming festivities, each class also worked to raise money for Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The parade began at the Miller Place Fire Department and culminated on the football field at the Miller Place High School. The Miller Place High School cheerleaders, groups of students from each school in the District, the Miller Place High School pep band and local community members marched alongside the different floats.


Spooky for a Cure

Miller Place High School students recently collected more than $9,000 to support cancer research during a spook-tacular Halloween-themed dance. The dance was held in memory of Joshua Faithfull, a Miller Place student who passed away in March, 2017, following a rare malignant melanoma of the brain and spinal cord.  During the dance students were able to decorate pumpkins, participating in a bean bag toss, face painting, a mummy wrap and more. Students also raffled a Nintendo switch, tickets to a Rangers game and a spa gift card to help raise money to support cancer victims. All of the proceeds from the event were donated to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
