W.T. Clarke High School student Yuktha Chiguripati was among 23 students at the Long Island Science & Engineering Fair that qualified for the upcoming Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.

Yuktha earned first place in the second round of the Long Island fair’s earth and environmental sciences category with her project “Pretreatment of Brassica rapa with Pyrabactin increases Tolerance to Drought.” First place winners from each category are now eligible to advance to the international level competition, to be held in Phoenix from May 12-17. 

 The first round was held in February, when 81 schools were represented with more than 400 individual and team projects. At least 25 percent of projects in each category moved on to the second round. The international competition is administered by the Society for Science & the Public with about 1,800 students from more than 75 countries competing for cash prizes.

The district congratulates Yuktha for her hard work and wishes her well in the next level.

The District honored the talents and excellence of students representing each school at the annual District Music and Art Awards at East Meadow High School on May 7.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth A. Card, Jr., welcomed all the guests of the evening including the honorees. He also thanked the teachers, administrators and community members who support the district’s programs.

“A special thank you to our faculty, parents and Board of Education that help to support the arts programs and creativity of our students,” said Dr. Card. “We are extremely proud of the accomplishments of our students that help to show the ‘great’ happening here.”

Following Dr. Card’s remarks, the district’s nine school principals presented humanitarian awards to four students from each building. This recognition honors those that lead by example, promote sensitivity and respect for diversity in school and foster tolerance through service to the school community.

Another highlight of the evening was the announcement that the district has been named a nine-time National Association of Music Merchants Best Community for Music Education. 

“Congratulations to all of our students for their success throughout the year with excellence in music and art,” said Director of Music and Art Dr. Christopher Hale. “I want to also thank the staff for their dedication and hard work.”
