Board Approves Payments

The Glen Cove Board of Education held a regular meeting last week at Robert M. Finley Middle School, discussing committee reports and business affairs.

Trustees David Huggins and Grady Farnan are both on the Facilities Committee, and reported they were planning to hold an “exit meeting” this week with Joe Fiorino to keep track of all pending projects and help make for a smooth transition upon his leave from the district. Huggins also said the Landing boiler installation is expected to be completed on time.

 

Superintendent Maria Rianna gave an update on the “Summer of Success” program currently underway, saying she had checked in with students that day.

 

“The students are really connecting with the teachers and are looking forward to returning to school this fall,” she said, noting that many of them are feeling more confident in their academic abilities. 

 

The board then passed a resolution to approve the fifth payment for the construction of the high school locker rooms, in the amount of $25,300.47, and approved the 2014-15 AS-7 Nassau  BOCES contract for certain student services.

 

The next board meeting will be on Aug. 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the middle school library.

News

Sea Cliff author Margaret Gay Malone is one of 11 authors whose short stories have been selected for publication in the Tuscany Press Anthology in 2015. 

 

The story, Jimmy’s Gift, centers around a boy whose generosity and selflessness put him in danger on a brutally cold and snowy day. Malone says it is based on a true story after reading a blurb in Reader’s Digest a few years ago about a 12-year-old boy who walked through the snow to help deliver food baskets to those in need; and it turned out that his family’s name was also on the list of those in need of help in the community.

Members of the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club and their families will be treated to a scrumptious Thanksgiving meal on Tuesday, Nov. 25, an event that has become an annual tradition for local families. 

 

This will be the 14th year that Andrea Correale, the president of Elegant Affairs Caterers, has donated this festive dinner, which in the past has served more 250 adults and children with a full turkey with all the trimmings followed by the always-fun ice cream bar. 

 

I can’t even believe it’s been 14 years,” says Correale. “And so many of the same people come back year after year.”
