Meadowbrook students salute the presidents


Third-grade students at the East Meadow School District’s Meadowbrook Elementary School helped to spotlight the celebration of Presidents Day with individual projects on the history of United States presidents.

Leading up to February, students in third-grades classes were designated a specific president from the nation’s history and tasked with researching that person’s biography and accomplishments. Each student’s discoveries were then constructed into a short informational page along with the picture of the president.

The creations have been on display in the school’s main lobby to help educate other students and guests on the collective and individual history of U.S. presidents, while also honoring Presidents Day on Feb. 18.
