The Kiwanis Kids club at Bowling Green Elementary School held a Thanksgiving food drive from Nov. 1-16 that yielded roughly 1,100 pounds of donations for families in the community.

Bowling Green staff and students were encouraged to donate canned goods and nonperishable items such as canned corn, beans, rice, pasta and soup. Each week during the drive, the Kiwanis Kids members collected the donated goods from each classroom. 

On Nov. 17, the Kiwanis Kids board members gathered to sort through the donations and prepared boxes for local families to celebrate the holiday. 

East Meadow Honors Veterans

In observance of Veterans Day, students in the district honored and thanked veterans for their service on Nov. 9.

Bowling Green Elementary School students paid homage to those who have fought for the country by planting a sea of miniature American flags, provided to every student and faculty member courtesy of the PTA, on the school’s front lawn. 

Across the district at W.T. Clarke Middle School and East Meadow High School, students listened to veterans speak about patriotism and acts of service to the nation. The middle schoolers heard from Vietnam veterans, who shared their experiences and discussed hardships of the war such as the extreme weather conditions of steaming temperatures and monsoons. The speakers gave students a firsthand glimpse into the war by circulating authentic materials such as soldiers’ helmets and vests, books, photo albums and enemy equipment. 

Sophomores at East Meadow High School attended Veterans Day presentations held by U.S. Army veteran Joshua Rivera, who discussed his 15-month tour in Iraq. A graduate of East Meadow High School, Rivera shared childhood experiences, explained why he enlisted in the military, and educated students about his uniform while demonstrating how to properly wear a gas mask.    

In turn, the students expressed their gratitude to the veterans for serving the country and devoting their lives to protecting the freedoms of the United States.

Bowling Green Elementary School students learned about making healthy choices from life-sized body organ puppets. 

Steve Petra of Petra Puppets utilized puppets such as the brain, stomach and small intestine to educate students about how the body functions. He also informed students how cigarettes and alcohol harm their health and organs.

With the changing of seasons underway, students of Bowling Green Elementary School in the East Meadow School District recently gathered to beautify their school by sprucing up the landscape surrounding the school. 

Working alongside teachers, parents and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Card Jr., students enhanced the school’s garden by planting tulip bulbs, garden mums, pansies and perennials. The project came to fruition with the help of the Bowling Green PTA.
