Governor Andrew Cuomo has designated the week of Oct. 31 through Nov. 4 to be School Board Recognition Week. This is the 20th year this event has been celebrated. In order to recognize the trustees of the Carle Place School District, the Carle Place PTA Council would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the dedicated members of our Board of Education for their tireless efforts.
A school board trustee spends endless hours on the job. Being a trustee requires someone who is dedicated to the children and community. The board is constantly promoting achievement for all students, striving for improvement and excellence in our schools, making sure the proper allocation of resources are available. All of this does not come without each trustees’ willingness to make great personal sacrifices. In addition to concerning themselves with the administration of the district, our board trustees are highly visible members of our community, attending many sporting events, musical concerts, award ceremonies and a variety of other school functions.
We extend our gratitude to our current Board of Education; Barry Dennis, John DiFrisco, Peter Fitzgerald, Tom Kane and Larry Zaino, as well as, the many trustees who have served before them. Their efforts help make our district a truly special place for our students, parents and staff.
As an expression of our appreciation, the Carle Place PTA Council has donated $100 to the Carle Place Educational Foundation on behalf of the Board of Education.
Christine A. Imrie
President, The Carle Place PTA Council
