Middle School is a period filled with challenge and wonder. Middle level students experience tremendous change as they enter early adolescence; no group contains more diversity. W.T. Clarke Middle School is committed to addressing the varied intellectual, physical, social and emotional levels of our students and to facilitating smooth transitions from elementary school to high school. We promote academic growth, self-respect and respect for the dignity and diversity of others. We encourage students to take advantage of educational opportunities that will open doors to new ideas and create a desire to learn and explore.
An impressive 164 students in grades 5-12 at the East Meadow School District have been chosen to participate in the Nassau Music Educators Association’s All-County ensembles. Several concerts are planned throughout January to showcase the student-musicians.
All-County selection represents one of the highest achievements in music for students. Performers are chosen based on their scores at the New York State School Music Association Solo Evaluation Festival and teacher recommendations.
In addition to their All-County accomplishment, seven middle school and 12 high school students were also selected to perform in the Long Island String Festival Association’s Nassau Intermediate and Secondary festivals.
“We are extremely proud of the students who have been accepted to represent the East Meadow School District in these prestigious music festivals,” said Kelly Gelfer, the district’s director of art and music. “They are representative of the exceptional music education taking place in East Meadow.”
