District Reopening Plan
Date Added: 5/10/2022
The W.T. Clarke High School Rams Marching Band in East Meadow took a trip to Washington, D.C. this past weekend, April 9-10, to perform in the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade.
The Rams joined 10 other high school bands from across the country as the parade featured floats, civic groups, dance troupes, equestrian groups, as well as musical groups from the branches of the Armed Forces. The students had a fabulous time performing for an energetic crowd on a beautiful sunny morning. In addition, they performed a concert at the Navy Memorial. Many parents travelled into town to watch the performances and cheer on their children. The group of almost 80 students spent time touring the National Monuments, the Smithsonian Museum of American History, attending a Mets vs. Nationals baseball game and having some fun at Six Flags America before returning home.
The students represented the school and community with professionalism and resilience when faced with the brisk and blustery early April weather during their outdoor performances. The East Meadow School District commends this group of students for their efforts and character during the course of this trip.

W.T. Clarke Middle School and W.T. Clarke High School were transformed into a STEAM convention center during a night of interactive educational activities on March 30.
Students and families of the East Meadow School District celebrated 21st-century learning at the district’s annual STEAM Night. Coordinated by Debra Harley, the district’s director of math and science, students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade had over 30 educational activities to choose from. Along with their families, students explored the burgeoning disciplines of science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics.
Students took part in numerous activities such as learning how to code Dash and Dot robots to control their movements, stacking cups to see who could make the tallest tower, creating paper chains using construction paper, turning ordinary objects into instruments, constructing 2D and 3D shapes out of toothpicks and marshmallows and creating beautiful artwork using magnets and paint.
More than 65 of the district’s teachers and over 50 high school student helpers planned and administered each of the evening’s events which contributed the event’s success. “It’s been two years since we had this event and it was clear people were looking forward to a family night of fun, learning and socializing. The turnout was incredible! We are so glad we were able to hold this in person event for the community,” said Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, Dr. David Casamento.
