Dear East Meadow School District,
Thank you for supporting our students and their families throughout the
year. Your commitment and dedication to our students' social and
emotional well-being is paramount to their success. I sincerely
appreciate your efforts.
We have had a busy year, and the time has flown by so quickly. Our work
continues to speak for itself. We've had the privilege to observe a
number of staff and student accomplishments on the state and national
level. I truly believe that we have the best group of students and
educators in the state and that is cause for celebration!
As we celebrate the holiday season, I encourage you to reflect on the
things and people who are truly important in your lives. It's important
for all of us to step back and put things into perspective and
appreciate our blessings. There is so much to look forward to in the
New Year, but we need this community's continued support in order to
achieve the goals we have set out for our students and our schools. We
are excited about the efforts ahead to improve teaching and learning in
all of our classrooms, for all of our students.
It's my wish that every single one of us take some time out during the
upcoming winter holiday break to spend quality time with our families
and other loved ones. However you choose to spend the winter break, I
wish you happiness, comfort and rest - well-deserved rest.
I wish you all a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year.
Dr. Kenneth A. Card, Jr.
Superintendent of Schools
