Smithtown High School West
Smithtown High School West held it’s 14th annual “Play 4 The Cure” field hockey game on Oct. 4. Each year the field hockey team dedicates this game in the memory of former St. James Elementary School teacher Sara Long Harte, who passed away due to breast cancer.
Sara taught at St. James Elementary School, the very same elementary school where she attended as a child, for eight years. Her immeasurable impact throughout the community in such a short period lives on today through a Scholarship Fund, a Memorial Garden and a hand-crafted picket fence in front of the St. James Elementary School which was built to honor her by a former student.
Her dedication to her students, charity work with the Sunrise Fund for Childhood Cancer and her unending labor of love for the community will never be forgotten.
