Letter: Syosset PTA Never Sleeps

This time  of year is a time to wrap things up  at school  whether in the classroom, cleaning out lockers and desks  and or taking final exams.  But just as we wrap things up, we simultaneously unwrap a new fiscal school year.  

The Syosset Council of PTAs never sleeps.  As with most organizations, the council works year round  and especially during the hot summer months  as we gear up for the following school year.  Programs need to be in place, reservations need to be made and fundraisers need to be researched.  All this and more  is done under the leadership of the executive board.  We welcome our new council with our end of year culmination dinner and installation. 

This year the event was chaired by Theresa Gordon and Sandi Kroll and was held at the Woodlands in Woodbury. Our new council officers are as follows:  President, Theresa Gordon;  First VP, Julie Gropper; Second VP, Sandi Kroll; Third VP, Meryl Bolnick; Fourth VP, Amy Cantor; Recording Secretary, Lisa Appel; Corresponding Secretary, Jennifer Kam; Treasurer, Christine Stuart and immediate past president Roberta Dochter.  We look forward to a spectacular new year with our new board.  Unit presidents , council delegates, principals and administration pictured below.

Eight students from Jericho High School, the largest number of students from any school on Long Island this year, are among the 300 semifinalists picked from 1,800 entrants nationally and overseas in the annual Intel Science Talent Search.

Brookville’s Green Vale School students were featured in the September/October 2013 issue of Sport Rocketry, the official journal of the National Association of Rocketry.

The seventh-grade students competed nationally at the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) last May in Virginia and were the youngest rocket scientists competing. They were also the only team from Long Island that qualified to enter the competition and one of only two teams from New York State.
