Honoring the Stars and Stripes

Honoring the Stars and Stripes

The district honored Flag Day on June 14 across all four elementary schools. Special morning ceremonies at each building welcomed students, staff and community members. 

Barnum Woods, Bowling Green, Meadowbrook and Parkway elementary schools took their tributes outside, where student bands performed and administrators addressed the significance of Flag Day and the country’s flag. 

Barnum Woods extended the celebration with the annual wellness walk through the surrounding neighborhood with students waving American flags. At Meadowbrook, the school hosted a surprise recognition ceremony to honor retiring Assistant Principal Gail Gallucci.

“Thank you to all students, staff and community members, including those that serve, that helped us celebrate Flag Day throughout East Meadow,” said Superintendent of Schools Kenneth A. Card, Jr.
