The East Meadow School District held its annual Superintendent’s Conference Day on Sept. 4 in preparation for another successful school year. The day began in the auditorium of W.T. Clarke High School, where Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth A. Card, Jr. welcomed staff and faculty members from all nine district buildings for an opening day convocation.  

“As we start a new school year, I wanted to let you know how proud I am to be part of the East Meadow School District and community,” Dr. Card expressed to the audience of administrators, teachers and staff. “Last year I witnessed the hard work each of you do for our students and families and that is why ‘Great Happens Here.’”

The day also included a presentation by Mandy Habib, Psy.D., a professor from the Institute for Adolescent Trauma Treatment and Training at Adelphi University. Dr. Habib presented on “Mental Health and Schools” and discussed ways in which those in attendance can support students.

The day was rounded out with teachers convening in their respective buildings to discuss and learn effective strategies for helping every student reach his or her highest potential the upcoming school year.
