Please join in congratulating South Huntington’s Jared Bloom and Mari Scardapane on their successful presentation at the New York State School Boards Convention in Buffalo, New York.  Dr. Bloom and Ms. Scardapane captivated the high-level audience with a wonderful preview of the immersive 3-D Virtual Realty technology operating in our schools called zSpace.  Our South Huntington schools were joined by the Plainview Old Bethpage District, as the two communities were showcased for utilizing cutting-edge technology in 21st Century instruction.  We are very grateful to Dr. Bloom and Ms. Scardapane for shining a bright spotlight on our district programs at the broader New York State level.
