FEATURED AT ART SHOW AT LONG ISLAND CHILDREN’S MUSEUM
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 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.
