The ALS Ride for Life stopped in Center Moriches on May 18 as part of its major advocacy event. Patients who have ALS led the ride that first stopped at the middle and high schools, and then made its way to Clayton Huey Elementary School. The Ride for Life was welcomed by elementary school students holding handmade signs and posters with messages of hope.

Throughout the month of May, or ALS Awareness Month, the Center Moriches school community raised money for the cause through several fundraisers and the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. At the Ride for Life ceremony, the district presented the organization with a $4,000 check to support patient services. Additionally, Center Moriches High School student Romina Lopez-Flores gave a powerful speech about how ALS has affected her family and the importance of continuing the fight.

The Center Moriches School District held its Cultures Around the World event on May 16 and invited students and their families to experience the traditions of several countries. Classrooms throughout Clayton Huey Elementary School each represented a different nation. Once inside, students could experience music of that country and complete an art activity. Students stamped their passports as they ventured through the halls, or across the globe.

Additionally, several performance groups took the stage. Elementary performers, the secondary jazz band, Poospatuck Reservation cultural dancers and drama club performers all stepped in front of an audience to share songs and dances. The event brought the Center Moriches community together while celebrating diversity.
