As part of a continuing tradition, the East Meadow School District and Board of Education celebrated two months of “Terrific Kids” at the board’s May 24 communication meeting.

The program, sponsored by the East Meadow Kiwanis, recognizes middle school students who exhibit a positive attitude, good character and responsible citizenship, and who serve as exemplary role models for their peers.

Setting the tone for the evening were the Woodland sixth-grade chamber strings ensemble and the W.T. Clarke High School jazz ensemble, who performed for those in attendance.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth A. Card, Jr., Board trustee and Kiwanis President Marcee Rubinstein and fellow board members, along with Woodland Middle School Principal James Lethbridge and W.T. Clarke Middle School Principal Stacy Breslin, presented certificates of recognition to the “Terrific Kids” honorees for May and June. The awards were distributed to a pair of sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students from each school for each of the two months.

Along with these accolades, outgoing board member Brian O’Flaherty was presented with a certificate of recognition to acknowledge his service and commitment to the East Meadow school community.
