Building character through song


Students at Parkway Elementary School in the East Meadow School District participated in a thought-provoking assembly by award-winning singer-songwriter Jared Campbell on Jan. 9.

The show consisted of engaging sing-alongs that reinforced positive character-building messages. A special superhero-themed show was presented to students in grades K-2 that centered on learning respect, playing it safe and showing up to school ready to learn. For grades 3-5, the show highlighted the themes of social and emotional wellbeing and kindness for all.
