[ARCHIVED] Fourth Grade Teacher Brian Pelosi Honored

Town of Smithtown Supervisor Surprises Accompsett Elementary School Teacher Brian Pelosi with Certificate of Recognition

Supervisor Ed Wehrheim made a special visit to Accompsett Elementary School to surprise fourth grade teacher Brian Pelosi with a Certificate of Recognition before the Summer break. On June 15th, Accompsett Elementary School Principal Timothy Hellmuth worked in coordination with Supervisor Ed Wehrheim to surprise and present Mr. Pelosi with the certificate. The special occasion came after letters were sent to the Town regarding Mr. Pelosi’s efforts to bring smiles and comfort to the student body, faculty and families at the end of each school day. 


“I have to say, we have some of the best teachers here in Smithtown. Mr. Pelosi saw the fears and uncertainty of his young pupils, their parents and I’m sure his coworkers as well, as we returned to life after the pandemic. But he chose to do something positive to help the people he cares so deeply for feel more at home and safe. That type of positivity is the best kind of contagious… and in turn inspires many to go the extra mile as well. For that, we wanted to do something special for Mr. Pelosi.” - Supervisor Ed Wehrheim 

 

At the start of the school year in September of 2021, Mr. Pelosi was tasked with managing the School's Car Line. Every day, Mr. Pelosi dressed up as a Traffic Cone to meet students and their caregivers as they were picked up in the afternoon. What began as a simple idea to make children feel safe as they returned to in person learning post-pandemic quickly became tradition. Whether it’s cold, raining, snowing or blazing hot outside, Mr. Pelosi has maintained this end of day transformation. The students have even begun to help Mr. Pelosi with the styling of his traffic cone costume to go along with the seasons and holidays.
