At a recent Board of Education meeting, students from Oakwood and Countrywood Primary Centers were on hand to thank our Board members for their dedication and commitment to providing a quality education.

Dedicated as ‘Board Appreciation Night,’ the evening began with a musical selection from Oakwood’s finest singers. Representative students from each primary center then presented board members with a handcrafted gift and talked about all the things they were appreciative of.

A big thanks to our primary school students who all did a great job presenting to the Board of Education. Countrywood students: Makayla Argo presented to Ms. Linda LaCara, Abigail O’Reilly presented to Board of Education President Nick Ciappetta, and Zachary Samuel and Shannon Sinnott presented to Mr. Andrew Bronson and Mr. Sidney Joyner respectively. Oakwood students Ryan Zhang presented to Board of Education Vice President Laura Carey, Sadie Singer and Sophia Occhiuto presented in English and Spanish to Mr. Ed Nitkewicz, and Tanisha Hyppolite presented in English and Spanish to Ms. Michele DeGaetano.

Representing PTA Council and the Booster Club was Michelle Murphy who also made a presentation to each Board member thanking them for their service to the district. Oakwood Principals Eileen Kerrigan and Mitch Levy were both very proud of their students for sharing with their selected Board of Education members and thanking them for all they do to make Oakwood, Countrywood, and all of South Huntington an amazing place to learn and work.
