Middle School is a period filled with challenge and wonder. Middle level students experience tremendous change as they enter early adolescence; no group contains more diversity. W.T. Clarke Middle School is committed to addressing the varied intellectual, physical, social and emotional levels of our students and to facilitating smooth transitions from elementary school to high school. We promote academic growth, self-respect and respect for the dignity and diversity of others. We encourage students to take advantage of educational opportunities that will open doors to new ideas and create a desire to learn and explore.
Extra, extra! Hot off the press, the first digital edition of the Clarke Courier is here! Our fall 2020 edition features a Q&A with Mrs. Breslin, profiles of two Clarke alumni now subbing in the building, and even a crossword puzzle. You will find creative writing pieces inspired by Inside Out & Back Again, coverage of Halloween at Clarke, and news about the latest books available on SORA. From tips on keeping busy during the pandemic to stories about the many ways Clarke Cares, The Clarke Courier has it all. The Clarke Courier staff and advisors Mrs. Dale and Mrs. Peretzman used Canva to create this edition. This free, multi-faceted program lets you design anything from posters to Instagram posts to greeting cards. Check it out at canva.com.
At W.T. Clarke High School, students in the Dog Rescue Club recently hosted a dog supplies drive, while the students in the Key Club hosted a canned food drive. Club leaders set up a decorated box by the school’s front entrance for students and staff to drop off donations throughout the month of December.
The dog supplies were donated to Second Chance Animal Rescue and Last Hope Animal Rescue, while the canned food was donated to LI Helpers. The youth lead nonprofit organization provides food for local families in need and was founded by W.T. Clarke High School alumna Misha Khan.
The East Meadow School District Art Department proudly presents the 2020 -2021 Young Artist Exhibition. Although we were unable to view the exhibit in person or celebrate together, we are excited to share the work of our students virtually. The exhibition, which will remain on display through May at the Leon J. Campo Salisbury Center, features works of art from students in grades K-12, representing every school in the district.
We would like to thank our students for sharing their talents and for allowing us to experience their work. Our students are leaders in our mission to create and to explore the arts and we hope the exhibit is a representation to our community that we are continuing to celebrate our students and the work they have shared.
We hope you enjoy!
