The 2014-2015 School Budget passed by 1,541 yes votes or 71.2 percent to 682 no votes (28.8 percent). Joanna Commander with 1,336 votes and Lara Gonzalez with 1,321 votes were elected as trustees to the North Shore Schools Board of Education. Thank you to community member, Robert Mazzella (with 1,219 votes), for running this year for the Board of Education. I am so pleased that three such caring and dedicated individuals were so willing to put themselves out there for the service to our schools. Additionally, we sincerely thank Amy Beyer and Tom Knierim for their many years of dedicated service to the Board and the North Shore community.
The residents of Glen Cove have recently received a flyer regarding the School District Budget Proposal for 2014/15. Indicated on the flyer is a proposal for a tax levy “to support Library Debt.” The Glen Cove Public Library is classified as a School District Library, which obtains its finances via a separate tax levy on your school tax bill and does not have any debt associated with the school district. The school district budget and the public library budget are separate and distinct entities.
Due to the unfortunate passing of Councilman Nick DiLeo, the council and mayor have the opportunity to appoint a member to the city council. Since the people of Glen Cove voted for an evenly split council, a Democrat should replace the vacant seat. I would hope that the mayor and city council consider Dr. Eve Lupenko.
Eve is a successful physician with 20 years in her profession. Her analytical mind is an asset to the council. As a homeowner who pays her fair share of property taxes, she will be a good steward of taxpayers’ hard-earned money.
Eve cares about the community and I know that she will work to improve it. Please show your support for her appointment by contacting Glen Cove City Hall at 516-676-2000.

In December of 2000, Congress established a National Moment of Remembrance to recognize and honor all those in the military who died in service to our country. The National Moment of Remembrance Act memorialized a commemoration that began three years prior, in May 1997, when radio and television stations across the nation played Taps and asked Americans to pause for one minute at 3 p.m. local time, wherever they were, to pay tribute.
It was a simple gesture to create a unified way to commemorate history, to honor our service men and women and to remind our citizens of the fragility of the freedom we hold so dear.
In a unanimous vote, the Glen Cove Council of PTAs has officially endorsed the proposed 2014/2015 Glen Cove School Budget. Immediately following several presentations of this budget, each PTA unit conducted a vote and every unit unanimously agreed to support the proposed budget.
The Council of PTAs is the coordinating body of all our school district’s Parents Teachers Associations, which is comprised of units from Glen Cove High School, Finley Middle School, Connolly, Landing, Deasy and Gribbin Elementary Schools, as well as Glen Cove SEPTA (Special Education Parents Teachers Association).
I am writing to voice my support for Joanna Commander for The North Shore Board of Education. It is my belief that we need people on the BOE that will represent the best interests of the children of our district as well as those of the property owners and residents of the NS School District. I firmly believe that, when making decisions that affect us all, Ms. Commander will carefully consider the needs of our diverse community. She has the requisite experience in education and management and is a proven leader. She has also been responsible for the significant budget of athletic programs for Lynbrook Schools and Harborfield Schools -- experience that is critical for a member of the BOE.
We are writing to urge you to vote for our friend and colleague for the North Shore School District Board of Education. We worked with Lara Gonzalez for nine years in Great Neck Schools before she left to pursue a position as a school administrator in another district. Currently she is a K-12 Supervisor in the Oyster Bay –East Norwich Schools.
Lara lives in Sea Cliff with her husband and three children. Next year she will have a first-grader at Sea Cliff Elementary School, a sixth-grader at North Shore Middle School and an 11th-grader at North Shore High School. Lara is deeply invested as a parent in the North Shore
School district. As a community member who will have a child at each level, she can represent families with children of all age groups.
My name is Robert Mazzella and I am a candidate for the North Shore School District Board of Education. I hope to have the privilege of representing the entire North Shore School District community - parents, seniors, local businesses, teachers, and most importantly the CHILDREN!
After actively attending virtually all school board meetings and informational sessions over the last two years, I decided it was time to seek a position on the Board of Education. As a parent of two children at the Glenwood Landing Elementary School, husband of a Garden City
High School teacher, active member of the Glen Head-Glenwood Civic Council, and President of the Property Owners’ Association of North Shore Acres, I believe I am uniquely qualified to represent all members of the North Shore School District area.
Please GET Out and Vote YES on May 20 for the North Shore Budget Vote!
More than ever, it is important for everyone to get involved and have your voices heard. Our children are relying on us!
The Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse Club would like to thank everyone who contributed to a successful LAXFEST this past Saturday. We want to especially thank Mayor Reggie Spinello for attending the event and mixing it up with the young lacrosse stars of Glen Cove.
The day started off wet and ended in the same fashion, but not a second of lacrosse action was spared as six Glen Cove lacrosse teams took to the field without even thinking twice about not playing due to a little rain. Many thanks go out to all the coaches for their continuous time and effort put in to teaching the game and sportsmanship to the kids. We’d also like to acknowledge the City of Glen Cove, the Glen Cove School District, the entire Field family and coach Tripp and AD Denise Kiernan for their help in organizing the event.
