This coming Tuesday, May 18, we all have the opportunity to once again show our support for our children and for our schools. Voting for the Great Neck Public Schools 2010-2011 budget is Tuesday, May 18, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., at the E.M. Baker Elementary School and at Great Neck South High School.
This year, in such dire economical times, with a lean school budget that had to be cut even further, the entire Great Neck community appears to have rallied behind our top-notch schools. Everyone wants to assure an excellent education for our children and a secure future for us all.
From the board of education, to parent groups, to school administrators and teachers, to longtime residents, to the business community, we are all committed to funding our school district in the most fiscally prudent way, all the while maintaining the quality of education we have come to cherish. Truly, in the Great Neck Public Schools, no child is ever left behind; each child receives the individual attention that must come with a fine education.
Yes, even in the midst of a frightening, unstable economy, our children in our school district will not suffer. Thanks to the Board of Education, the best place for a top-notch education will continue to be our very own public schools.
So, please, join your Great Neck neighbors in voting “yes” to the school budget on May 18! And please be sure to also give your vote, and your support, to the Great Neck Library budget.
The future is for all of us, and our children are our future!
