The last Board of Education meeting was dedicated as Board Appreciation Night. Students from Oakwood and Countrywood Primary Centers thanked the board members for their dedication and commitment to providing a quality education in a safe, secure setting.

The young students gave each board member a handcrafted gift and read a card that talked about all the things they were appreciative of. The students had also drawn pictures of each board member, many of which strongly resembled their subjects.


South Huntington PTA Council President Ms. Laura Carey also made a presentation on behalf of the individual school PTAs in which she spoke of their gratitude for the dedication of and countless volunteer hours spent by the members of the board.
