We heartily congratulate our Great Neck Public Schools Board of Education for the public support that approved the upcoming 2013-2014 school budget! The results were 1,183 “yes” votes and 321 “no” votes.
How proud we are to live in a community that consistently supports the future, the education of our children. Great Neck understands and appreciates the quality, top-notch education that is always provided for Great Neck’s children. Each and every child is treated as an individual, with each child’s individual needs met.
How the administration and the school board manages to be so fiscally prudent in these tough economic times, yet still address specific needs is quite an amazing feat.
Congratulations to our amazing board of education: President Barbara Berkowitz, Vice President Lawrence Gross, and trustees Donald Ashkenase, Monique Bloom (who just won her own seat with 1,094 “yes” votes) and Susan Healy, and a great thank you, too, to Superintendent Thomas Dolan.
Congratulations, too, to the Great Neck Library on the public approval to adopt the 2013-2014 library budget, 1,038 to 403.
We can now congratulate ourselves, too, for our wise judgment in voting for the future!
