The district was represented with 21 projects from W.T. Clarke Middle School and Woodland Middle School at the Long Island History Day regional competition, held on March 31 at Hofstra University. 

Faith Fuller and Shreejita Satpathy of W.T. Clarke earned fourth place out of 33 entries in the Junior Group Documentary category with their presentation of “Frances Oldham Kelsey: The Thalidomide Crisis, the Woman Who Saved America and Reformed the FDA.” Their placement qualifies the pair to participate in the New York History Day state level competition on April 29 at the Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown.

Three students and two projects were also recognized in the special award categories. Umme Bootwala and Mubaraka Ezzi of W.T. Clarke earned the Science History Award sponsored by the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory for their exhibit project “A Heavy Water Sabotage: Operation Gunnderside, A Daring Norwegian Mission that Transformed World War II.” Maya Delrosario of Woodland Middle School was presented the Latin American History Award sponsored by the Long Island Council for the Social Studies with a project titled “Diego’s Art Triumphs Over the Tragedy of the Great Depression.”

“Congratulations to all our students for their hard work and for bringing these historical events to life,” said Director of Social Studies and 21st Century Learning, Jim Mendonis.

Woodland Middle School’s literary magazine was recently distinguished by the 2018 National Council of Teachers of English, Recognizing Excellence in Art and Literary Magazine Program. The publication, “The Meadow,” achieved a rank of “excellent.”

Woodland was one of just four middle schools in a pool of mostly high schools that were recognized by the program. Additionally, it was among 21 schools in the state to earn a rank of “excellent,” and one of only 358 entries that were honored throughout the country.

“The Meadow” is led by teacher advisors Ellen Ruoff, Caterina Largana and Chris Krauss and includes contributions from a variety of student authors.

“I want to thank the NCTE for bestowing this award on our school and magazine,” said Ms. Ruoff. “Congratulations goes to the students for their hard work and dedication!”
