Downing students marched into the Thanksgiving break with a festive Balloon Parade!

Students lined the halls and applauded as the parade weaved its way through the school, followed by a very special holiday guest, and out to the playground where the parents were waiting to join the fun.

The Pride of Malverne Marching Band concluded their 2022 competitive season with their annual Marching Band Dinner and Celebration on Thursday, November 10th.

The event was held in the high school gymnasium and parents, friends, family, administration, and board of education members were all in attendance to help celebrate!

Parents contributed their specialty dishes as a part of the “potluck” dinner, students were each recognized and called up to the podium by their instrument section and we watched a video slide show comprised of photos that encapsulated the entire season.

To close out the celebration, the band performed their 2022 show, “Behind the Smile” one last time.

Congrats to the entire Marching Band family…you are truly “The Pride of Malverne”!

The district congratulates sophomore Michael Lawless on being selected as a Bass to perform with the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) National Honor Choir.

Michael was among 4,000 applicants from across the country and one of only 300 invited to perform at the ACDA national conference in Cincinnati, Ohio from February 22-25, 2023.

With the help of Choral Director Mr. Zagare, Michael had to learn and record a song excerpt sent by ACDA, part of his NYSSMA song, and vocal exercises.

This is the second time in Malverne history that a student has been honored with this distinction.
