Port Postmaster Robert J. Guglielmo held award ceremonies at the Port Post Office on Thursday, March 31, to honor over a dozen employees of the postal service who had served over 30 years. The cumulative work experience of those who were recognized exceeded 400 years.

As we finally move toward the warmer weather and graduation draws closer, it is my privilege to keep the community abreast of various ongoing projects, as well as the continued academic excellence evident in the Port Washington School District. As always, our unwavering goal is to continuously improve the quality of education in the district while exercising prudent fiscal management.
Annual Port Washington LAX Day
Spring has arrived! On Saturday, April 16, one of Port Washington's most exciting annual rites of spring will take place on Campus Drive beginning at 9 a.m. If you have never participated in the fun and enthusiasm of Port's annual LAX day you are in for a pleasant experience. Girls and boys of all ages will be engaging in sports contests for the entire community to watch and cheer.
On the Bay
Spring has finally arrived. Depending on your interests and activities, spring will reveal its wonders in many different ways. For the nature lover and gardener, you may notice the buds on the trees and the arrival of crocuses. For a child, the chance to run outside without a heavy jacket is a treat. For a commuter into the city, it may mean less hassle getting to the train station. For a sailor, spring is a start of a new sailing season, and a time to get over to the sailors "community center," the boatyard, and get some work done preparing your boat. There is something so very special about a boatyard in spring. Maybe it's the anticipation of exploring far-away ports, or finally crossing the finish line first, or improving last year's race performance that energizes sailors to jump with gusto into their long "to do" lists.
