On a beautiful September morning, thousands of students, faculty, parents, and community members enthusiastically lined up to kick-off the 9th Annual North Shore Schools Homecoming Parade at Glenwood Landing School. Leading the parade was the American Legion Glenwood Landing Post 336 followed by the North Shore Cheerleading team, NSHS Drum Line directed by David Soto, the Board of Education including Superintendent Dr. Edward Melnick, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Rob Chlebicki, and Assistant Superintendent for Business Olivia Buatsi, the Booster Club, the Viking Foundation, various parent organizations, and the Glenwood Landing Fire Department, just to name a few.
On Sept. 3, Sea Cliff Principal Chris Zublionis along with the Sea Cliff PCA, welcomed the new kindergarteners and their families to the annual Playground and Popsicles event. Because of rain, the children and their families met in the Sea Cliff cafeteria to greet new friends and their teachers. While parents mingled with one another, Kris Rice led the children in songs.
While the weather was gloomy outside, spirits inside were high, as everyone sang songs, ate Popsicles and enjoyed indoor activities. The Sea Cliff PCA organized the event, which was appreciated by new and returning families and their children in the community.

At the Sept. 12 North Shore Board of Education meeting, trustees unanimously approved a $19.6 million Infrastructure Bond Referendum for the long-term financing of projects related to the health and safety of the students, faculty and staff. The average home owner will see no increase in their property taxes as a result of the proposed bond, since payments of the 2013-14 Infrastructure Bond will be phased in as older bonds are phased out and paid off.
Trustee Russo stated, “The bond will help keep the tax levy stable.”
