More Media

Good Hair
Last year, we were hard at work enhancing our media collection. Thanks to an $800 mini-grant from the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District, we were able to purchase 57 new (and replacement) DVDs. We also added many non-fiction titles. These films enhance classroom instruction and are fun too! Films in the classroom are often times shown in segments and not as full-length features, depending on the curriculum. These films are reserved for teachers to check out.

Speaking of fun films, tonight is Mepham's first "Movie Night Under the Stars" out on our new turf field starting at 7:00 pm. After an intense fundraising contest between classes, the seniors won the right to select this year’s movie and they chose Grease. This event is sponsored by the Mepham High School SADD chapter with all proceeds set to benefit the Most Valuable Kids of Greater NY organization. Tickets are $5.00. We hope to see you tonight!
