Mathlete Students Participate In Tournament

The Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District’s John F. Kennedy High School Mathlete Team recently participated in the Nassau County Math Tournament that was held at the State University of New York at Old Westbury. The students answered a series of mathematic questions as individuals and in a team format. The mathletes were given 45 problems to solve in three series of events. JFK senior Mustafa Ansari placed in the top 10 of the tournament.

Temple Chaverim is hosting a new member open house Friday, May 2  at 8 p.m. The program includes Shabbat services followed by an extensive Oneg Shabbat. The Temple invites prospective members to take this opportunity to meet their dynamic clergy and innovative education director as well as members of our community.

According to Jody Steifman, member of the Temple Chaverim Membership Committee, Chaverim aims to bring the community closer together.

Due to what appears to be a colossal error on the part of the Nassau County Assessor’s office, military veterans and Gold Star families will have to wait for their tax break until next year.

Plainview is one of several local school districts that recently approved resolutions extending an exemption to local veterans, even though budgets and Albany’s tax cap make it a tough choice. Last month, despite concerns about lack of confidence in the validity of eligibility information provided by the county assessor’s office, the Plainview trustees voted to provide a school tax exemption for veterans living in the Plainview-Old Bethpage School District, starting with the 2014-2015 school year.
