On behalf of the Board of Education, we would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who participated in this past week’s school budget and bond referendum votes. The Floral Park-Bellerose School District had record high voter turnout of 3,000 voters, and we appreciate all of you who took the time to educate yourselves about the issues and come to the polls. The overwhelming success was an inspiration and demonstrated our community’s strong belief in our public schools and the students who attend them. Thanks to your continued support, not only can all of our present programs at the elementary and high schools be continued, but planning can begin for the much needed repairs to our five high schools. We would also like to take the opportunity to thank the many residents who helped to spread the word about the importance of the Sewanhaka Central High School District bond referendum.
The passage of this bond will allow much needed repairs and renovations, enhanced efficiencies, and improved security to take place as we continue to provide a quality 21st century education for our students. Thank you all for this wonderful gift you have afforded our community’s children.
David Fowler, Sewanhaka Central High School District Board of Education president
