In recognition of the hard work and commitment the Bellmore School District Board of Education dedicates to students and staff, a ceremony was held prior to the Nov. 19 meeting to honor the Board’s five members.
During the ceremony, a districtwide chorus featuring students in grades 2-6 performed a few musical selections for the Board. As they do every year, the PTA donated a gift to the district on behalf of the Board. This year’s gift was a kiln, which will be housed at Shore Road School.
The recognition was made to mark the New York State School Boards Association’s School Board Recognition Week. The week, which took place Oct. 28-Nov. 1, enables local school boards to be thanked for their volunteer service by their schools and community.
“We appreciate everyone coming out and taking the time to show such support and community,” remarked Board President Maryanne Kelly. Pictured from left: Board of Education trustees Jay L. T.
