The Board of Education had an eventful night at its June 19 Board of Education meeting at New Visions School with a variety of recognitions to close the 2018-2019 school year. In addition to its annual Celebrating Success Employee Recognition tradition, the district honored outgoing board members President Michael Pomerico and Vice President Anthony Miller for their years of service to the community, and highlighted the staff members who were granted tenure.

For the Celebrating Success Employee Recognition, eight employees were honored for their individual accomplishments and for demonstrating values that helped positively advance the district organization, along with their contributions to the goals and objectives of the district, individual school and work unit. School principals introduced the recipients and board president Michael Pomerico presented each of them with a celebratory plaque.

This year’s honorees included Kerri Albarano, Barbara Crespi, Maria DiBlasio, David Gordon, Nelson Holland, Laura Lund, Raquel Marmol and Beth Rugolo. 

Board members also said their final farewells to outgoing board president Mr. Pomerico and vice president Mr. Miller. As a thank you for their dedication and years of service to the community, New Visions students presented a skit and sang “This Little Light of Mine” in both English and Spanish. 

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham expressed his appreciation for their efforts serving the board of education. 

“All the things we have accomplished in the district could not have been done without your support,” Dr. Kuncham said. “We thank you for your service on the school board and we wish you the very best.”

The final celebratory item included the board granting tenure to 23 staff members. This includes 17 teachers, five teaching assistants and Ruth Breidenbach, director of the Arts and Community Relations. 

The district congratulates all who were honored and thanks them for their outstanding efforts to the community.
