Calendar Photo Contest

The Town of Hempstead is pleased to announce its 13th Annual Calendar Photograph Contest. Each year, the town produces a calendar, which is delivered to every resident.

What makes our calendar unique is that it includes photographs that are all taken by town residents. Friends and neighbors are asked to submit their own original photographs that depict a seasonal Town of Hempstead event, park, neighborhood or other inspiring subject matter. The pictures must be taken within our township.

Letter: The Levittown Budget: A Student’s Perspective

Friday, 07 May 2010 00:00

I am a junior at MacArthur High School. I have been a Levittown School District student since I started kindergarten. I can say hands down that I have received an exceptional education here. My teachers are top notch. Not only do they teach us our subjects in the classroom, but they teach and influence us outside the classroom as well. They give their time for extra help, they volunteer to participate in fundraisers for the PTA, and they cheer us on during athletic competitions. I respect my teachers tremendously, and know I have been successful because of their commitment to my education. With a failed budget, many of my past and present teachers will loose their jobs.

 

Letter: Levittown Can’t Afford Bloated School Budget

Friday, 07 May 2010 00:00

It would be a community service if you would point out to your readers that Levittown is again leading all Nassau County schools. Unfortunately, it is for having the highest proposed  expenditure budget increase, 6.12 percent, not counting the busing proposition #2, which will add .73 percent more (6.85 percent total.)

 

Letter: Restore Excessed Island Trees Staff

Friday, 30 April 2010 00:00

I am a taxpayer in the Levittown School District and a teacher in the Island Trees School District so I understand the difficulties that the Board of Education faces when it has to prepare a budget that will be acceptable to the community.

Tuesday night I went to the Island Trees School Board meeting in support of my colleagues who have been excessed. I stood and applauded when my fellow teachers spoke on their behalf.

 

Letter: Increasing Property Taxes for Levittown School Budget Is Unacceptable

Friday, 30 April 2010 00:00

So we are now after the New Jersey school district budget votes and a couple of weeks away from our own New York State opportunity to vote. Thank you to the voters of New Jersey for standing up and rejecting 315 of the 537 proposals. Now we in New York don’t have to be the first. Hopefully we can send a message to the school boards that we are done with the ever-increasing school budgets and the rising taxes that are killing us.

 

Letter: Anthony Vidal Is an Excellent Teacher to His Students

Friday, 23 April 2010 00:00

(Editor’s note: This letter was originally read to the Levittown School Board at a recent board meeting)

Hello my name is Joe Giglio. I attend the class Sports Health and Fitness Services in Gerald Claps Career and Technical Center as an 11th-grader from MacArthur High School. People say that your junior year of high school is the hardest year of your high school years. Well those who say this don’t have the opportunity to have what I am honored to have. What I have is a teacher, Anthony Vidal, the teacher of my Sports Health and Fitness Services class. Not only is he a teacher with incredible knowledge of the subjects he is teaching me and my fellow classmates but he also has hands-on experience in the field.

Building Stronger, Vibrant Downtowns

One thing is for sure – Long Island is home to thousands of shopping options from big boxes to big malls to downtowns to strip malls. We are known to shop until we drop. During tough economic times, we all often let the best bargains determine where we shop.
