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.

Thoughtful and Terrific Board Meeting

Thoughtful and Terrific Board Meeting

The Board of Education meeting on May 29 was a full showcase of excellence from staff members and students alike as selfless acts, academic success and musical talents were on display.

The W.T. Clarke High School Saxophone Quartet opened the evening’s festivities by performing the Star-Spangled Banner. Following opening remarks from President Matthew Melnick and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth A. Card, Jr., the focus shifted to the honorees.

Bowling Green Elementary School Principal Maria Ciarametaro honored third grade teacher Christine Reiman for her efforts in supporting her student Mahdi Islam as he awaited a heart transplant. Ms. Reiman helped to host a “Super Hero Day” that raised $4,000 combined between the Bowling Green and Meadowbrook Elementary Schools. Additionally, she kept Mahdi involved in classroom activities through webinars and Google Hangouts. Ms. Reiman was presented with a Certificate of Excellence for her endless dedication and devotion.

The selflessness theme continued as Meadowbrook student Emma Vulpi was recognized for supporting the Child Life Program at NYU Winthrop Hospital. Emma decided that instead of receiving birthday gifts this year, she wanted to donate new toys to the hospital program to help those in need. Principal Kelly DiScalfani-O’Brien presented Emma and her parents with a medal and certificate for generously donating $300 worth of toys.

In the area of academic achievement, Director of Social Studies and 21st Century Learning, Jim Mendonis, along with Director of Literacy and Funded Programs, Frank Lukasik, spotlighted academic excellence by honoring middle school students that excelled at the recent Long History Day. W.T. Clarke Middle School students Umme Hani Bootwaia and Mubaraka Ezzi were recognized for receiving the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory sponsored Science History Award. Woodland Middle School’s Maya Del Rosario was applauded for her Latin American History Award sponsored by the Long Island Council for the Social Studies.

Next, attendees were treated to two musical selections by the East Meadow High School String Ensemble.  The group opened with a rendition of AC/DC’s “Back in Black” followed by a medley of Queen songs, all to the delight of many in the audience.

Recognitions concluded with the presentation of Terrific Kids from W.T. Clarke Middle School and Woodland Middle School for the months of April, May and June. These awards are sponsored by the East Meadow Kiwanis Club. Kiwanis Club President Gary Fromowitz, along with Principals Stacy Breslin and James Lethbridge, highlighted sixth, seventh and eighth graders who have exhibited a positive attitude, good character, and responsible citizenship while also being exemplary role models for their peers.  

Congratulations to all the night’s honorees and presentations, once again demonstrating the great that happens in East Meadow.

Bowling Green Elementary School welcomed the National Circus Project for an enthusiastic assembly On May 9.

The National Circus Project is an educational outreach program that focuses on art education, physical education and cultural arts. Through challenging workshops, students have the opportunity to learn patience, self-discipline and good habits. Each performance packed a panoramic presentation of circus skills into comedy-variety routines through audience interaction and participation. The performers involved Bowling Green students and staff in their acts such as juggling and plate-spinning to demonstrate the fun of learning new tricks.

Bowling Green thanks the performers of the National Circus Project for a fun and educational assembly.
