Middle School is a period filled with challenge and wonder. Middle level students experience tremendous change as they enter early adolescence; no group contains more diversity. W.T. Clarke Middle School is committed to addressing the varied intellectual, physical, social and emotional levels of our students and to facilitating smooth transitions from elementary school to high school. We promote academic growth, self-respect and respect for the dignity and diversity of others. We encourage students to take advantage of educational opportunities that will open doors to new ideas and create a desire to learn and explore.

Dunking in Donations

Dunking in Donations

The W.T. Clarke Middle School hosted a dunk tank fundraiser on April 12 as part of an ongoing effort to support the end-of-year “Change for Change” assembly.

Students purchased tickets for a chance to hit the target and sink a volunteer teacher. The dunking took place over three class periods as each grade competed for the most dunks. Teachers sat on the ledge of the tank waiting to be dropped into the water below as students lined up to throw balls at the target.

All proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the total amount collected for the Change for Change program. Donations will be distributed among local charitable organizations at the “Change for Change” ceremony, scheduled for May 31. To date, more than $2,000 has been garnered through various events. The annual giving event, now in its 14th year, is hosted by the service learning club under the guidance of advisors Katie Pienkos and Ashley Sanalitro.

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.”

The W.T. Clarke High School and Middle School music department welcomed guests for the first East Meadow Children’s Concert on April 7. 

The concert was geared towards kindergarten through second grade students and featured the story “The Little Engine That Could.” Members of the high school chorale, wind ensemble, and chamber orchestra portrayed characters while showcasing some of W.T. Clarke’s premier musical groups while also teaching about certain instruments.

The W.T. Clarke Middle School Junior Tri-M Music Honor Society members led an “instrument petting zoo” where concert goers were able to visit the brass, woodwind, percussion and string stations. Students demonstrated and explained how to play the instruments as younger attendees had opportunities to push down the keys and valves in addition to playing some of the string and percussion instruments.

“We hope that the community continues to be patrons of the arts, appreciators of music and that our children will be involved in our music program as they continue through elementary, middle and high school,” said Director of Music and Art, Dr. Christopher Hale.
