  1. candleThoughts and Prayers to Stan’s Family and Friends!
    Stan always brought his cup of tea each morning to school!
    He always prepared for a great day!

  2. candleI met Stan Senior year of high school at Holy Trinity High School in Hicksville. And then to my surprise again, when I started working at Mount Sinai High School on my first day of teaching. We worked in the same English hallway and he would come and visit me each day in say good morning and always added, ” so still no friends… t’s just you and the computer?” I would laugh!! It was a great comfort having him at the school where I began my teaching career. I would help him with the computer, doing his grades He would share memories of times we spent at Holy Trinity. We became good friends. And we would share what was happening in our lives with our families! Going to miss his okes and his friendly comments and his plaid shirts and his granny Smith apples and big cup of tea! But most of all I’m going to miss HIM. He touched my heart and I will never forget him. I extend my deepest condolences to his family hoping that they may find some comfort and may he rest in peace 🙏
    PS I’m sure if he read this he would let me know all the grammatical errors that it

  3. candleStan was really a wonderful ball of energy each and every day that I worked with him. It was really encouraging for me as a new teacher to see that level of commitment both to the kids as well as the craft. Stan truly loved what he did and it exuded in his demeanor, plaid shirts, cup of tea and fun giggly laugh. He always had a smile and a warm greeting. I am so sorry for your loss but please know that he had such a positive impact on so many.

  4. What an honor to have been taught by such an amazing English teacher. His level of enthusiasm was contagious. Sending my love and many prayers to the family at this time.

  5. candleI had the pleasure of working with Stan at Mt Sinai. He was a pleasure to work with and we shared many laughs. He was kind to everyone and went out of his way to help so many of the young teachers out. He had a positive impact on the Mt Sinai community in so many ways. My prayers go out to his family.

  6. candleI worked with Stan for many years at Mount Sinai High School. He was always so kind and funny. I can still hear his voice and see the plaid shirts that he’d wear with his cup of tea. He had made a wonderful group of friends and colleagues and helped everyone who needed him.

    I also lived in Rocky Point at the time and whenever the weather was going to be bad, he’d offer to pick me up in his Saturn because I didn’t love driving in the snow. I always knew I could count on him if I was ever in a bind.

    I’m very sorry for your loss.

    • Heaven is gaining a wonderful person. Mr. Archacki was such a great teacher & mentor. He was one of the stand out teachers who connected with every student & captivated them with his love of English. I graduated from Holy Trinity in 1976 and I have thought of him often. After reading through what people have already shared I am very happy to see he remained the same person we all looked up to in high school. I got a kick out of how many referenced his plaid shirts & cup of tea. Upon entering his classroom you could count on his smile, upbeat personality & ability to draw you in for the entire time you were in his presence. Thank you Mr. Archacki for being such a great teacher. My prayers for all who loved him & are missing him.

  7. candleI am so sorry to hear about the loss of Mr. Archacki. He was such a nice, funny and smart. May God rest and bless him – and love to his family.

  8. My deepest condolences to the Archacki family. Stan was a teacher, friend, mentor, and colleague for so many over the years and I am certainly one who benefitted from his knowledge and expertise. As a new teacher starting out, I looked to Stan many times for that “real world” advice only he could give. Over time, we became friendly colleagues – he would always greet me with a “How you doin kiddo?” Me with a coffee in hand and he with the trademark mug of tea. We often talked of family. His boys, grandchildren and wife Kathy were his pride and joy. I’m saddened for your loss. Stan was a kind soul who extended that kindness to others. May your lifelong memories comfort you.

  9. I first met Stan when we were both teaching at Earl L. Vandermeulen HS in Port Jeff back in the 1980s and my memories stayed the same after all our years teaching together in Mount Sinai HS. His smile and laugh are forever in my memory bank. So many times we would just stop and talk in the HS halls with is tea in hand. I always asked about Kathy and the family, as he would ask about mine. My thoughts and prayers go out to them since he is gone way too soon, but his memory will live in us all forever!

  10. Mr. A was one of the great teachers at MSHS and I was lucky to be one of his students. May his memory be a light to all those who knew him in the classroom and outside of it.

  11. Mr. Archacki was my favorite teacher at Holy Trinity. He was such a nice man and an excellent teacher. My condolences and prayers for his family.

  12. Mr Archacki was my favorite English teacher at Holy Trinity ( 1972-76) in two different years. He made the class fun and interesting. I took public speaking with him as well. His guidance helped me overcome my shyness and helped mold me into the manI am today. God bless him, may he rest in peace.

  13. So sorry to hear of Stan’s death. I worked with him in the English department at Holy Trinity in the late 70’s. He was a great teacher & the students really loved his classes. May he rest in peace. Special remembrance to Cathy.
    With love,
    Sister Nora 🙏🌹📚🙏

  14. I hated English in 9th and 10th grade. As a junior, I decided to drop honors English and was placed into Mr. Archacki’s 11th grade regular English class. It was night and day. He made the books come alive, and he made class fun to come to. I will never forget him pulling out that severed head at the end of Macbeth. But my favorite memory of him was him screaming “STELLA” at the top of his lungs at the end of “A Streetcar Named Desire.” He showed how much difference a great teacher can make! I loved going to his class each morning.
    I was also lucky enough to be his colleague for my first six years of teaching at Mount Sinai High School. He was an absolute character who always had me laughing. But he took mentoring and looking after the new teachers very seriously, always providing good professional advice. As your friend, Stan was always asking about your family…he remembered the smallest details about his colleagues, students, and former students. He loved talking about his grandkids and his next trip down to Maryland to see them. He will be greatly missed; they definitely don’t make them like Stan Archacki anymore!!
    P.S. I hope I didn’t make too many grammar mistakes in this post Mr. Archacki : – )

  15. I was Stan’s colleague at Holy Trinity High School for too short a period of time. He made the faculty room come alive with his wit and wisdom. A great teacher who has touched the future in a most positive manner!

  16. Mr. Archacki was my creative writing teacher at Holy Trinity (class of 82) and it was one of my favorite classes! We had so much fun. I fondly remember reading our writing assignments aloud and how accepting and encouraging we all were of each other’s work. That was due to the positive atmosphere he created. I continued writing for many years after that class and went on to be a teacher myself.
    Rest in Peace Mr. Archacki condolences to your family.

  17. Thoughts and love to the Archacki family. Mr. Archacki was a favorite teacher of mine, he had a terrific perspective and was always fun to talk to. I loved how he offered creative options to his writing assignments, it inspired me to push my artistic boundaries! As a teacher now myself I think of him often!

  18. One of my favorite and most memorable teachers at Holy Trinity, some 50 years later.

    Always a happy and caring person.

    Thanks for the great memories “Mr. A”

    Rest in peace!

  20. Stan was one of my favorite teachers at Holy Trinity. I had two classes with him during my four years at HT. He was always at the top of his game in the classroom.

So many of us are very fortunate to have been a student of his
