Members of the Woodland Middle School Peer Helpers Club in the East Meadow School District visited sixth grade classrooms to encourage kindness during their annual “Pay It Forward” assembly on March 25. Normally, the assembly is held in the school’s auditorium, with all sixth graders present, but this year, because of social distancing protocols, pairs of Peer Helpers visited classrooms and presented videos based on the topic of paying it forward.
The seventh and eighth grade Peer Helpers led the sixth graders in a variety of exercises, including presenting scenarios pertaining to bullying and how words can affect others. The presentation concluded with students watching a clip from the movie “Pay It Forward,” which explained how one act of kindness can create a chain of positive change.
In honor of Black History Month, students from the East Meadow School District studied the work of African American artists including Clementine Hunter, Reggie Laurent and Faith Ringgold. Students created original artwork inspired by these artists in February and March. Please enjoy a selection of pieces created in Ms. Kyvelos’ classes at Barnum Woods, Mrs. Nerdalen’s classes at Woodland and Mrs. Pawlowski’s classes at W.T. Clarke High School.

The Builders Club at Woodland Middle School worked to “brew up” support for first responders throughout the month of February. The club asked the Woodland community to donate K-Cups to benefit hospital workers and firefighters.
“The club sought to recognize first responders for their hard work and their readiness to put their lives on the front line for the community,” Builders Club co-adviser Rebecca Boettcher said.
Thanks to the generosity of the school community, the Builders Club was able to provide the everyday heroes with a much-needed boost of energy, as well as messages of gratitude.
