NAMM Honor Proves Deer Park Music Program Is a Soaring Success

NAMM Honor Proves Deer Park Music Program Is a Soaring Success

The NAMM Foundation has again recognized the Deer Park School District’s music program, awarding it the prestigious 2018 Best Communities for Music Education designation. The annual award, now in its 19th year, honors outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students.

“We are extremely proud to be designated as one of the best communities for music education by NAMM for 2018,” said Bradley Murphy, the district’s curriculum associate for fine and performing arts. “Our board of education, teachers, staff, administrators, parents, and students foster an incredible atmosphere and culture to let the arts soar in Deer Park.”


May Moore’s Magnificent Mural Celebrates Autism Awareness

May Moore’s Magnificent Mural Celebrates Autism Awareness

As a highlight of its celebration of Autism Awareness Month, May Moore installed a special autism mural on April 11, led by teachers Alannah Boccard, Susan Mirman and Michelle Sarco. Volunteers had helped to work on the mural with paint donated by Sherwin-Williams.

“The three of us, spearheaded by Mrs. Boccard, were looking to continue the acknowledgement of Autism Awareness Month and overall diversity at May Moore while helping to beautify the school,” said Mirman.

To create the mural, all of May Moore’s teachers were asked to read a book and discuss diversity and tolerance with their students. Then, each student created a puzzle piece reflecting what he or she took away from the lesson; these pieces formed the border of the mural.

Additionally, one student from each class was chosen whose puzzle piece or input in the lesson effectively embodied an understanding of the ideas of diversity and tolerance. These students – Roman Amini, Austen Arroyo, Noah Barclift, Sophia Castaldo, Brianna Chillogalli, Kaitlyn Cortes, Olivia Diorio, Dania Fodel, Lorenzo Grotta, Christina Jackson, Jayden Jasmin, Devie Kelsey, Precious Mansibang, Nora Metzger, Anamika Nath, Ragib Noor, Gabriella Pagan, TJ Spinelli, Chris Stolz and Onur Tuzun – were honored at the installation ceremony, where they were presented with certificates and invited to personally add their piece to the puzzle. 

Touch-A-Truck Touches Down at May Moore

Touch-A-Truck Touches Down at May Moore

May Moore hosted its first Touch-A-Truck family fun event on April 20, right in the school’s backyard. Students and visiting parents had the chance to view and explore a variety of vehicles – including giant trucks; classic cars; emergency, construction, transportation, postal, electric and other one-of-a-kind vehicles; and even boats – and sit in the driver’s seats and honk the horns. A train was also available for students to ride during the day, and the high school’s Falcon mascot made a colorful appearance.

Organized by May Moore’s Touch-A-Truck Committee, the hands-on event was designed to coordinate with the schoolwide “Start Your Engines” theme and STEAM curriculum, and to provide students with a chance to utilize cognitive thinking skills while exploring the more than 30 types of vehicles.

Artistic May Moore Second-Graders Showcased at ‘Colors’

Artworks by two second-graders from May Moore – Camila Melgar Ayala and Mohammad Rauf – were chosen for display in the 20th annual Colors of Long Island student art exhibit, held at the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook. Rauf attended the show, accompanied by teachers Briana Nussbaum and Michelle Sarco.

Sponsored by Astoria Bank, Colors of Long Island provides K-12 students the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents in a professional museum setting.

Rauf’s pumpkin piece and Melgar Ayala’s acorn painting, both watercolors, were inspired by the colorful patterns of artist Romero Britto.
