Important Information

More Special Treats for our Heroes

The first PTA Bake-off was an amazing success! As always, the families of the McVey community came together (figuratively) and showed why they are second to none. The doctors and nurses who received the treats were moved by your support during these difficult times.

To continue to show our love for those on the front lines, we are going to hold a second Bake-off. The baked goods and signs of support will go to the heroes at LIJ and NY Presbyterian Hospital. Let's continue to show our love for those out there working hard to keep us safe. 

 

McVey Leads the Way!

In-Person District Art Show Returns

The East Meadow School District was once again able to commend their student artists in person at their districtwide art show at the Leon J. Campo Salisbury Center on June 1 and 2. Students, families and community members were invited to visit the show during specified times, allowing for a safe and enjoyable viewing.

“While viewing artwork in a virtual capacity is certainly wonderful, nothing compares to experiencing original works of art in person,” Art Department Chairperson Heather Anastasio said. “We are thrilled to be able to bring this experience to our student artists and their families.”

Art teachers from throughout the district were also in attendance to celebrate the work of their students. Each teacher chose 13 works of art from their classes, including those who were included in this year’s virtual All-County Art Exhibit but were unable to have their work displayed in person. The evening was also a welcome return for the community, which has always greatly supported the district’s art program.

“I would like to thank the East Meadow community for the continued celebration and support of our program,” Director of Music and Art Kelly Gelfer said. “The district’s commitment to the arts continues to be our biggest strength.”

Traveling the World at McVey Elementary

 To celebrate the diversity of their student population, McVey Elementary School created a “Culture Tour,” which includes a hallway full of flags to represent the heritages of all students, which were donated by community members. Additionally, the halls were adorned with various projects created by students about their cultures.

“We really wanted to represent the diversity of our school,” Principal Kerry Dunne said. “Students can walk down this hallway and not only be proud to represent their heritage, but also learn about others.”

Similarly, Ms. Dunne has been reciting facts about different countries during her morning announcements. Lastly, the physical education department got involved by having students in all grades play different sports that are popular around the world, such as cricket and soccer.
