The East Meadow School District featured several programs and events to recognize Mental Health Awareness Month during the month of May.

Many of the schools’ mental health awareness activities took place during Wellness Week, which aims to cultivate physical, emotional and mental well-being. During Mental Health Day at Bowling Green Elementary School, students wrote and shared positive affirmations on sticky notes. At W.T. Clarke Middle School and W.T. Clarke High School, staff members wrote encouraging notes to their colleagues. Additionally, students and teachers at both schools wore blue throughout the week. Blue is a calming color that reflects inner peace and healing. Other activities in the district included Meadowbrook Elementary School’s physical activity obstacle course and Parkway Elementary School’s Wellness Walk. Many of the schools also took part in Screen-Free Friday to take a break from using technology.

Students and teachers throughout the district enjoyed promoting healthy practices, encouraging and supporting one another, and raising awareness about positive mental health.
