The entire Board of Education was honored on Tuesday, October 20, which was designated Board Recognition Night in Locust Valley. Students, teachers, faculty members, and representatives of the various parent organizations gave thanks to the Board with handwritten jumbo cards, homemade cookies (student-made to be exact!), and various thank you gifts.

Although those thanking the Board ranged from students to administrators, the sentiment was the same – “Thank you for the support you give us year after year!”

This week has been designated School Board Recognition Week by Governor David Paterson as a way to thank school boards statewide for their dedication and commitment to their communities.

Locust Valley certainly appreciates the dedication and commitment of these volunteers. Thank you to our Board of Education: Jack Dolce, President; Suzanne Sgueglia, Vice President; Dr. Yao Chu, Philip Bellisari, Erika Bruno, Joseph Madsen, and Ronald J. Walsh Jr.
