GC BOE Adopts Budget for 2002-2003
With a unanimous 7-0 tally, and after much review and discussion, the Glen Cove School Board voted on April 15 to adopt the school budget for the 2002-2003 school year. The total amount of the budget is $50,019,504. The adopted budget includes the addition of two special education teachers, two high school teachers in order to move the 10th-grade students to a full schedule, maintaining staff in grades K-4 that will yield an average class size of 21 and the addition of transportation for grades 9-12, ending a decade long mission by some residents to reinstate high school transportation.
Kudos to the North Shore Sheltering Program Volunteers
The volunteers who offer their time and talent to the North Shore Sheltering Program were the special guests for a "thank you for all you've done" dinner at the Resurrection Greek Orthodox Church last week. Volunteers coordinate health checkups, bedding supplies, meals, and sleepover personnel for clients of the shelter who are being accommodated by the First Presbyterian Church in Glen Cove. The sheltering program offers a warm meal and warm place to sleep to the homeless during the winter months. On behalf of the City of Glen Cove, Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp offered sincere thanks to everyone who participated in this humanitarian effort once again this winter. Dean Poll, the proprietor of The Riverbay Restaurant in Williston Park, offered the dinner.
