(Editor's note: This letter was sent by Manhasset Superintendent of Schools, Charlie Cardillo, to Tower Foundation co-presidents, Elise Dadourian-Kline and Wendy Cozzens.)
Thank you for all that you and so many other Tower volunteers do to help make the Tower dinner a great success! The Manhasset students continue to be the beneficiaries of the tireless efforts of the Tower Foundation. This was my fourth Tower Foundation Dinner and the contributions to our academic program have been incredible during this period of time.
The foreign language lab, the graphics arts lab, the music lab, and the K-12 SmartBoard initiative have greatly enhanced and restructured the delivery of content thanks to the state of the art technology donated to each of these areas. I think you have seen that the staff and students have warmly embraced each of these donations and put each to great use.
The Tower Foundation Dinner is also a great night for the Manhasset community. The spirit of Manhasset was visibly evident throughout the Plandome Country Club on Saturday night. At a time when our nation is experiencing difficult times, our community was blessed to have the opportunity to come together and share a very uplifting night.
Once again, I am truly appreciative of everyone's efforts in helping to make this wonderful event happen. Your efforts do make a difference!
Manhasset Superintendent of Schools
