In celebration of Board Recognition Week, the October 30 workshop meeting opened with the trustees being appreciated for their tireless dedication and advocacy. 

Board Recognition Week is an annual celebration sponsored by the New York State School Boards Association, which honors the trustees’ commitment to public education. 

In anticipation of the meeting, Verne W. Critz Elementary School provided a display of student art in the board room as well as a leaf garland, which was crafted by the students and hung on the board’s table. Select students also handed to each trustee a crafted pumpkin and, under the direction of music teacher Christopher Loeschner, students sang a variety of songs to the pleasure of the trustees and parents attending the meeting. 

Board of Education President E. Anne Hayes thanked the students for their thoughtfulness and said she believed they were attending the meeting for the Board to thank them. “Every day you come to school and leave school with a smile, you’ve been successful and made us feel good about that,” Ms. Hayes said. “Thank you so much for being who you are.”
