Parkway Classes Take Responsive Approach

Parkway Classes Take Responsive Approach photo

Classes at Parkway Elementary School showcased the district’s initiative of “responsive classrooms” on the morning of Sept. 18 by holding morning meetings between the teacher and students.

Inside the kindergarten class of Mrs. Krystal Mancuso and first-grade class of Ms. Amy DePaulo, students gathered on the classroom carpet to greet one another while also engaging in a sharing discussion, a group activity and a morning message. In Mrs. Mancuso’s class, students made eye contact before shaking each other’s hands. Students also had the opportunity to share stories of a recent activity as well as some students telling a joke. 

The emphasis of the morning meeting is to allow the students to gather as a community while merging social, emotional and intellectual learning in addition to creating a climate of trust and respectful interactions.

Two students from the East Meadow School District were selected as National Merit Semifinalists in the 64th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. The district congratulates East Meadow High School senior John Meah and W.T. Clarke High School senior Jonathan Melkun.

A total of 16,000 U.S. semifinalists have been identified out of an initial pool of 1.6 million U.S. students who took last year’s PSAT/NMSQT, a qualifying test. Now, they will each contend for finalist titles, with the prospect of eventually earning one of the 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million. 

This year’s semifinalists scored in the top one percent nationally on the exam. Winners of the National Merit Scholarships will be named this spring.

The East Meadow School District held its annual Superintendent’s Conference Day on Sept. 4 in preparation for another successful school year. The day began in the auditorium of W.T. Clarke High School, where Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth A. Card, Jr. welcomed staff and faculty members from all nine district buildings for an opening day convocation.  

“As we start a new school year, I wanted to let you know how proud I am to be part of the East Meadow School District and community,” Dr. Card expressed to the audience of administrators, teachers and staff. “Last year I witnessed the hard work each of you do for our students and families and that is why ‘Great Happens Here.’”

The day also included a presentation by Mandy Habib, Psy.D., a professor from the Institute for Adolescent Trauma Treatment and Training at Adelphi University. Dr. Habib presented on “Mental Health and Schools” and discussed ways in which those in attendance can support students.

The day was rounded out with teachers convening in their respective buildings to discuss and learn effective strategies for helping every student reach his or her highest potential the upcoming school year.
