Artwork from the talented students of the Elmont School District is on display at the Long Island Children’s Museum (LICM), thanks, in part, to an ongoing partnership between the district and the museum.  The only district in Nassau County to be given space at the museum’s gallery on an annual basis, the Elmont School District takes pride in showing off the creative masterpieces of its students.  During the month of April, the museum will be awash with color as collages and paintings decorate the halls.  Featuring a diverse mix of media including works done in pastels, watercolors, tempra paints and oils, the showcase gives students a chance to be proud of their accomplishments, and to realize that their community is proud of them as well.

            Elmont School District Superintendent Al Harper joined members of the Elmont School Board in congratulating the students on their achievements at a reception at the museum last month. The special event, coordinated by LICM Director of Programming Aimee Terzulli, Elmont School District Art Department Coordinator Alice Katz and Elmont School District Special Assistant for Community Affairs Norma DeBartolo, brought school officials, community leaders, museum staff and parents together to celebrate the artists as well as the art. 

            The participating students were:

From Alden Terrace School: Marcelo Cabrera, Djenane Cesar, Bryshaun Gocoul, Reena Khan and Jonathan Melendez.

From Clara H. Carlson School: Rabia Chohan, Savonn Dangerfield, Michael Fritz, Freeha Khan, Erin Simangan.

From Covert Avenue School: Christianna Concilio, Melissa Corona, Vincenzo Orologio, Willane Saint-Hilaire and Geraldine Smith.

From Dutch Broadway School: Sanal Alexander, Lerone Clark, Natasha DeSouza, Samantha DuJour, Jade Guzman, Sakina Lukmanji, Nichole Robert, Samantha Truter, Johnson Uwamanzu-Nna and Kerianne Vaz.

From Gotham Avenue School: Maria Ayala, Sherley Benjamin, Davin Bhagwandeen, Meredy Silva, Justice Smith and Jovanny Ventura.

From Stewart Manor School: Syed Bukhari, Joshua Kessler, Kristina Lewis, Alyssa Thomas and Selena Thomas.

The mission of the Elmont Union Free School District is to “reach and teach for excellence,” which means continually improving instruction and increasing student achievement. Dedication to this goal is what has earned Elmont New York state recognition for its “High Performing/Gap Closing Schools,” and as a state “model for school success.” In partnership with the community, the district holds its students to the highest standards while maintaining one of the lowest per-pupil expenditures in Nassau County.
