Juliette Markesano and Pavly Zaky, two sixth grade science students at Woodland Middle School, were recently named two of the top 10 winners in the PSEGLI I AM EM-Powered Program and Student Challenge for their work in creating a unique public service announcement about energy conservation.

The I AM EM-Powered program is designed to educate students about energy efficiency and protecting the environment. Students were challenged to create a public service announcement to spread the word about how everyone can do their part to help the earth.

“Both students created imaginative and persuasive public service announcement videos to encourage others to do their part in saving the environment,” Math and Science Chairperson Crystal Mello said. “We are proud of these students for their dedication to help improve our planet!”

Eighth grade students from W.T. Clarke Middle School and Woodland Middle School in the East Meadow Union Free School District recently received honorable mentions for their work presented at Long Island History Day, advancing them to the state level competition. The highly regarded National History Day program is designed to cultivate historical research skills. All East Meadow students in seventh and eighth grade social studies/ELA honors classes were invited to participate. Teachers and administrators selected the top projects in each category to enter into the local competition. Each year, hundreds of middle and high school students from more than 50 districts on the island participate at Hofstra University in person, but this year the competition was held virtually. Sixteen total projects were presented by East Meadow students at Long Island National History Day.

 Myles Bernal, Ivan Cao and Caleb DaRocha developed a website from their research called “Carrier Pigeons: Winged Messengers of War.” Additionally, Rebecca Aber and Angelica Abreu from Woodland created a documentary, “Communicator in Chief: How FDR Healed the Nation with His Words.” These students will now compete on the state level. National qualifiers will be announced at the end of April.
