Bowling Green Elementary School belongs to the East Meadow School District located in the center of Nassau County, Long Island, NY. We are a large school with almost 900 students in grades K to 5.
The Bowling Green Elementary School honored third grader Mahdi Islam on April 17 with a schoolwide Super Hero Day. Mahdi is currently in the hospital awaiting surgery for a heart transplant.
Students and staff showed their support of Mahdi by donating a $1 to wear a “Super Hero” shirt during the school day. The day began with a mini pep rally in the hallway by Mahdi’s classroom. Teacher Christine Reiman surprised the students and Mahdi with a FaceTime call to show him the support from his peers and district community.
“We are here to support Mahdi and wish him and his family the best of luck,” said Principal Maria Ciarametaro. “Everyone in the district and at Bowling Green look forward to Mahdi’s return to school.”
Students in the English as a New Language program at Bowling Green Elementary School celebrated the unveiling of their collaborative published book, “Our Stories,” on April 1.
The students wrote about influential people in their lives, special memories and themselves in the form of autobiographies during a project dating back to November. The assignment was a way to highlight the importance of diversity and individuality. Teachers, parents and grandparents were among the featured influential people.
Following a brief April Fool’s Day joke from teacher Jackie Goldstein about the books not being delivered, the students were presented with a box filled with copies of the compiled book. Each student viewed their own work, as well as that of classmates, while also taking a few moments to read excerpts to one other. Some students had the special opportunity to read their projects to the Bowling Green teachers they wrote about.
“As a teacher, there is nothing better than seeing your students proud of their own writing,” said Ms. Goldstein. “Our celebration was not just about a book, it was also about embracing our differences and uniqueness in each of our stories.”
