Governor David Paterson has declared the week of Oct. 25 to 29 to be School Board Recognition Week. School board members have been described as having the most important volunteer job in the country yet face the toughest challenge in elected American government. They are just ordinary citizens with extraordinary dedication to our public schools.
Our school board trustees are individuals who spend countless hours on the job, making many personal sacrifices in order to best serve our children. In addition to concerning themselves with the administration of the Carle Place School District, listening to staff and student concerns; our board trustees are highly visible members of our community, attending many sporting events, award ceremonies and numerous other functions, which take place throughout the course of the school year. Our board members always keep their eyes on the goal of student achievement.
In order to recognize the trustees of the Carle Place School District, the Carle Place PTA Council would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the dedicated members of our board of education for their tireless efforts. We extend our gratitude to our current board of education: Barry Dennis, John DiFrisco, Peter Fitzgerald, Tom Kane and Larry Zaino. These individuals help to make our district the truly special place that it is for our students, parents and staff.
Please make a special effort to tell each school board member that their hard work has been noticed and is truly appreciated.
President, Carle Place PTA Council
