Bowling Green Elementary School belongs to the East Meadow School District located in the center of Nassau County, Long Island, NY. We are a large school with almost 900 students in grades K to 5.
Bowling Green Elementary School held its annual Spring Beautification Day on May 10 to enhance the grounds and gardens around the building.
Students, staff members and parents came together to attend to the area in front of the building, specifically around the new Bowling Green sign. New flowers and plants were added to embrace the beauty of the spring season.
Bowling Green extends a special thank you to the district grounds crew for prepping the areas for easier planting and for continuously improving the school’s environment.
Third grade students at Bowling Green Elementary School were treated to a visit from Steve Fratello, “The Butterfly Man,” on May 14.
Mr. Fratello shared his rare and varied collection of butterflies and moths along with amazing stories from his time researching insects, including adventures in the Amazon Rainforest. He created a show-and-tell atmosphere with several shadowboxes filled with a number of unique butterflies and moths.
Mr. Fratello presented several surprising facts and explained that there are more than 25,000 different species of butterflies and over 500,000 species of moths throughout the world. He also educated the group on how these creatures adapt to their environments through mimicry and camouflage while also using their colors to communicate and as warnings to predators.
Bowling Green thanks “The Butterfly Man” for bringing a unique and educational presentation to third grade.
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.”
The district would like to congratulate all of the honorees for sharing their talents and accomplishments with all of us.
The District opened the doors of the Leon J. Campo Center on May 2 and 3 for the District Art Show. Nearly 1,300 pieces showcased the artistic talents of students at the district’s elementary and secondary schools.
The first day featured an opening reception for students, parents and community members, while the second day featured an open exhibit, whereby passersby were provided an additional opportunity to view the many projects. Artwork was presented in a range of mediums including photography, sculpture, drawing, painting, architecture and graphic design.
“Our student artwork is awe-inspiring,” said Director of Music and Art Dr. Christopher Hale. “Thank you to all who came out to support student creativity in our district.”
The district hosted its Fourth Annual Zumba for Autism event on April 8 at W.T. Clarke High School. The effort was a great success, raising $2,584 to support students at the Developmental Disabilities Institute.
Organized by the East Meadow SEPTA and the Clarke Connections Club, community members filled the W.T. Clarke gymnasium for a night of Zumba dancing and raffle donations.
“Thanks to everyone who came out to support our Fourth Annual Zumba for Autism fundraiser,” said Bowling Green Elementary School psychologist Dr. Robert Mueller. “East Meadow SEPTA and students from the Clarke Connections Club did a great job organizing donations, setting up and dancing! Thanks for a great evening and for raising autism awareness.”
