Over the past six years, students throughout the district have benefited from generous contributions from SupplyHouse, a plumbing, heating and HVAC company in Farmingdale. This year, SupplyHouse provided the district with a $20,000 grant that funded a new one-to-one technology initiative for fourth-grade students at Susan E. Wiley Elementary School and new musical instruments for student-musicians.

During its May 9 regular business meeting, the board of education and central administration showed a short video of fourth-graders in Maria Shanahan’s class at Susan E. Wiley Elementary School using their one-to-one laptops. Through the grant, the district was also able to purchase two new trombones, a tuba and a trumpet for students in the music program. Two elementary student-musicians were present at the meeting to accept and thank Kari Stirnweis, human resources director at SupplyHouse, for the new instruments.

To show their gratitude, the board of education and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon presented Stirnweis with a plaque and an Unsung Hero Award.
