The East Meadow School District held a virtual workshop, “Coping and Balancing” in partnership with the PTA Curriculum Council’s Project ACCESS (A Community Committed to Educating Students for Success). David Hymowitz, a social worker from the Nassau County Department of Human Services, educated attendees on managing emotions, expressing feelings and creating a routine to stay healthy during these unprecedented times.

Mr. Hymowitz led the discussion, encouraging participants to share their personal experiences. He pointed out key differences between the current crisis and others, noting the larger impact on humanity due to the global scale. He also discussed helpful ways for students, parents and educators to manage stress and anxiety.

The East Meadow School District has been conducting mental health webinars with different focuses for staff throughout the school closure due to COVID-19 and particularly during the month of May, which is Mental Health Awareness Month.

The East Meadow School District would like to welcome current third grade students to the East Meadow Instrumental Music Program. This is an exciting time of year when students have the opportunity to select a musical instrument to study. Students can choose from a variety of orchestra and band instruments: Violin, Viola, Cello, String Bass, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Tuba, and Xylophone/Percussion. Additionally, if students sign up to play either an orchestra or band instrument, they are also eligible to participate in chorus.

Resources for parents and students to review can be found on the district’s music curriculum homepage at https://www.emufsd.us/curriculum_and_instruction/music_third_grade. It is suggested families consult this information with students before making their selection. The necessary form needed for instrumental selection is also posted to this page. The resources can also be found on each of the elementary school’s homepages.

Once information has been reviewed and students are ready to make a selection, please complete the Instrumental Music Selection Google Form on or before Friday, June 5th.

To address any questions or concerns parents may have regarding instrument care and maintenance, please know we are all working together to ensure the safety of our students. The cleaning and sanitizing of East Meadow rental instruments will be appropriately addressed according to the CDC guidelines as well as recommendations made by the National Association for Music Education. The safety of our students is our top priority.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to your child’s music teacher. The district looks forward to a rewarding and enriching experience with instrumental beginners!
