Letter: I’ll Be Running In May

I will be submitting my petition to run for trustee of the Mineola School Board of Education. As an appointed trustee, I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of what the position entails. I’ve witnessed that the wonderful things happen within our district because of the hard work and tough decisions of many people.

 

It’s been more than I expected, but not more than I can handle. I would be honored to continue to be part of that process. I strongly support this district, which continues to be fiscally responsible.

 

My goal is to assist the board and district in continuing to maintain and expand our academic and extracurricular programs while keeping us within our tax cap. My husband and I are raising our two children in this wonderful community. We have a son who is currently in seventh grade and a daughter in third grade. I have had the privilege of being able to volunteer my time within the district for the last 10 years. I began volunteering as a class parent. I served as PTO President of The Willis Avenue School for two years. I then went on to become President of the District Council of PTA’s for our district. By doing so, I have met many wonderful students and families. I want to continue working for the children of this district. They are our future. With your support on May 20, I will continue in fulfilling these duties to help our students reach their goals.

News

Gitangalie Palombo, an Elmont yoga instructor, will open Fly High Dance and Fitness on the second floor at 111 E. Jericho Tpke. after her plan was approved by the Mineola Village

Board last week. She expects to open by January 2015. Sherwin Williams occupies the main floor.

 

“We want to be a great addition to the community,” she said. “I hope Fly High brings a new flare to the area.”

Local school districts are reaffirming student hygiene standards in the wake of the non-polio enterovirus (EV-D68) that’s been found in the United States. A strain of the enterovirus was found in Southampton’s middle and high schools, but officials say it was not the virus that has caused the national EV-D68 outbreak.

 

The enterovirus disproportionately affects infants, children and adolescents who lack immunity, according to the Center for Disease Control. School districts have been notified to follow New York State Health Department guidelines to combat possible infections.


Sports

The New York Cosmos hosted the Mineola Athletic Association’s Soccer Club recently for its penultimate fall 2014 home game. More than 140 members of the MAA soccer club and their families came out on a chilly October evening to show their love of the game. Twenty-two Mineola boys and girls had the honor of escorting the New York Cosmos and Ottawa Fury players onto the field in the traditional “Walk of Champions.”

 

The Mineola spirit must have inspired the home team, as spectators enjoyed the exciting 2-1 Cosmos victory, with the game-winning goal coming in stoppage time.


As a current member of the Mineola High School Varsity Soccer team, senior, Catherine Cunningham has been dominating the scoring for the Mustangs.  She has 12 goals and two assists in the last seven games. 

 

In her last week of play alone, she amassed six goals in just three games. As a captain for the last two years, Cunningham has been an All-Conference and All-Class player, leading her team to two victories so far this season.
