Students at East Meadow High School recorded videos of themselves reading children’s books in different languages for younger students at Parkway Elementary School during Pick a Reading Partner month. PARP is a program that asks a partner to read with a child for at least 20 minutes daily, stressing the fact that reading can be fun as well as informative.
Multiple classes at Parkway participated in the virtual read along. The high school readers appeared on the screen with a book and recited the books in either Italian or Spanish. Some of the books were presented using American Sign Language, with someone reading the story as they signed. In addition, the ASL high school students taught the younger students how to sign their names as part of the activity.

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.
