Community, Students Recognize Board

School Board Recognition Week was celebrated at the district prior to the board of education’s meeting on Oct. 24.

Each year, New York State reserves one week in October to recognize school board members. School Board Recognition Week serves as an opportunity for faculty members, students, and community residents to acknowledge and thank their board of education members.

Starting with a performance by the Madrigal Choir, the board of education was also presented with a banner of appreciation from the High School Chapter of the National Art Honor Society. Along with gift bags filled with chocolate, the Teacher’s Association donated to two local food pantries on behalf of the board.
     
The  district’s secretarial unit made a donation to the Brittany Walsh Scholarship Fund and the Principal’s Association gave donations to Alex’s Lemonade Stand, Hope for Warriors and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, all on behalf of the board. The Supervisory Association made contributions to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Cycle for Life, the teacher aides and teaching assistants donated to the ALS Organization, and the PTA Council supplied food and donations to Alexander’s Angels.
