The week of Oct. 21 through Oct. 25 has been designated School Board Recognition Week by the New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA). At the Oct. 15 Board of Education meeting, representatives from Village School and the S.E.A.L. program expressed their appreciation for Board President Barbara Berkowitz, Vice President Donald Ashkenase, and Trustees Donna Peirez, Rebecca Sassouni, and Jeffrey Shi. The presentation included a prepared video as well as students speaking about the outstanding educational opportunities that are made possible through the support of the Great Neck Board of Education. Student representatives presented Board members with a student-created book and certificates as tokens of appreciation.
