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.
