Readers Write: Parents thank GN Board of Ed members

The Island Now

It goes without saying that this has been a school year unlike any other. More than ever, our community puts their trust in our Board of Education for the best decision-making, thoughtful planning and the appropriate use of funds for our schools.  Not only did we need planning for our schools to remain clean, healthy and safe places for our children, but also planning for the remote learning that is taking place.

On behalf of the United Parent-Teacher Council, we would like to acknowledge the dedication and outstanding service of the members of the Great Neck Public Schools Board of Education.  Our thanks and appreciation go to President Barbara Berkowitz, Vice President Donald Ashkenase, Trustee Donna Peirez, Trustee Rebecca Sassouni, and Trustee Jeffrey Shi for their outstanding service to the Great Neck community.  We are well aware of the endless hours that they spend volunteering their time for the benefit of our community, providing exemplary education opportunities for all, from Pre-K to adult education.

In conjunction with celebrating School Board Recognition Week in New York State, we acknowledge our board’s unwavering commitment to educational excellence.

“Education is not only the learning of the facts, but the training of the mind to think.” — Albert Einstein

Thank you to the members of our Board of Education. We are grateful for their leadership and so very appreciative of the wonderful school district in which we reside. We look forward to continued strength and unity in our district with their guidance and leadership.
