Student-musicians in grades 4-6 performed at the March 9 Board of Education meeting.

On March 9, the New Hyde Park-Garden City Park Union Free School District Board of Education welcomed student-musicians in honor of Music In Our Schools Month, as well as a panel of representatives from New Hyde Park Road School.

At the start of the meeting, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jennifer Morrison took a moment to discuss the importance of providing music education to young students.

Then, student-musicians in grades 4-6 from across the district performed “Baby Shark,” “God Bless America” and “Let’s Go Band” under the direction of music teachers Carolyn Goodman and Stephanie Ruppert.

Following the performance, the Board welcomed a panel of representatives from New Hyde Park Road School. Panelists included one student from each grade K-6, a teacher, a PTA member and school mascot Mighty the Mustang.

Moderated by New Hyde Park Road School Student Council President Aidan McNeely, the panelists answered questions about the school, such as “What is the best part of your day?” and “What is an example of a service-learning project that taught you about empathy?”
