Letter:Carle Place to Celebrate School Board Recognition Week

Governor David Paterson has designated the week of October 19 – 23, 2009 to be School Board Recognition Week. This is the 18th year this event has been celebrated. 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.

A school board trustee spends endless hours on the job. This requires someone who is not only dedicated, but is also willing to make great personal sacrifices. In addition to concerning themselves with the administration of the district, our board trustees are highly visible members of our community, attending many sporting events, musical concerts, award ceremonies and a variety of other school functions.

We extend our gratitude to our current board of education - Barry Dennis, John DiFrisco, Peter Fitzgerald, Tom Kane and Larry Zaino – as well as the many members who came before them. Their efforts help make our district a truly special place for our students, parents and staff.

As an expression of our appreciation, the Carle Place PTA Council has donated $100 to the Carle Place Educational Foundation on behalf of the board of education.

Jeanne Lofgren

President
Carle Place PTA Council
