In honor of Black History Month, students from the East Meadow School District studied the work of African American artists including Clementine Hunter, Reggie Laurent and Faith Ringgold. Students created original artwork inspired by these artists in February and March. Please enjoy a selection of pieces created in Ms. Kyvelos’ classes at Barnum Woods, Mrs. Nerdalen’s classes at Woodland and Mrs. Pawlowski’s classes at W.T. Clarke High School.
The fifth installment of How Great Happens Here highlights the district's physical education and athletics department, featuring Director of Physical Education, Health and Athletics Kristi Detor!
The W.T. Clarke High School National Art Honor Society in the East Meadow School District created a poster incorporating bright colors and uplifting phrases to add some cheer to the community. The collaborative project was inspired by the Kindness Rocks Project, a nationwide initiative to cultivate connections and lift others up through acts of kindness.
“The students wanted to create something that would brighten our schools and community,” art teacher Jane Pawlowski said. “This was a collaborative project by the talented artists in the National Art Honor Society and we hope it brings a smile to those who see it.”
This project is part of the district’s celebration of Youth Art Month, which aims to emphasize the value of art education for all children.
Approximately 150 student-musicians from the East Meadow School District participated in the inaugural Performance Readiness Workshop series sponsored by the Nassau Music Educators Association from Feb. 5-7. The workshops provided students with the unique opportunity to listen to peers from neighboring districts and receive feedback from professional musicians, including members of the New York Philharmonic, the Houston Symphony, the Imani Winds and many notable college professors.
Many East Meadow music faculty members were clinicians and presiders for the workshops, including Alexandria DeVries, Zachary DeVries, Rachel Fogel, Caitlin Hale, Gregory Krajci, Colleen Mander and Kaitlin Melker. The district congratulates its own Jessica Shenker, who serves as the president of the Nassau Music Educators Association.
