Tenure Recipients Honored for Excellence

The Board of Education granted tenure to eight faculty members on June 6. These individuals were recognized at a reception during which administrators described how each of them had proven that they were making a difference in the Locust Valley Central District. 

Each tenure recipient spent years proving that they are worthy of becoming a permanent part of the LVCSD family. Their supervisors observed their professional practices over the years, ensuring that they performed their jobs in a manner that was considered superior. Their skills, relationships with others and willingness to learn were all factors that were considered when reviewing each candidate for their tenure appointment.

Acting Superintendent Dr. Carl Bonuso congratulated the honorees on this important milestone in their careers.

Congratulations to Jamie Cherkis, Locust Valley Middle School/High School Mathematics Teacher; Kimberly Derenthal, Ann MacArthur Primary School Teacher; Jaime DiRossi, Locust Valley Middle School/High School Science Teacher; Kristin Hordy, Locust Valley Elementary Schools Physical Education Teacher; Brian Kollar, Locust Valley Middle School Science Teacher; Toni Meliambro, Locust Valley Central School District Assistant Superintendent for Business Affairs and Human Resources; Alexander Moir, Locust Valley High School Foreign Language Teacher; and Michelle Villa, Locust Valley High School Assistant Principal.

Guest Reader Shares Story with Second Graders

Ann MacArthur Primary School second graders enjoyed a visit from New York State Senator James F. Gaughran, who read them a story reminding them of all the things they learned in second grade.
The students in Amanda McCarthy’s class sat together in the library listening to the Senator read aloud “Things I Learned in Second Grade” by Amy Schwartz.  The story captures the highlights of second grade including learning to spell bigger words, calculate more difficult math problems and read chapter books.
Senator Gaughran also taught the children what a Senator does and shared that like them, he is looking forward to summer recess.
