It was an exciting night during the district’s December Board of Education meeting, as board members and administrators celebrated two student achievements.
The night kicked off with the board honoring Middle-High School student Nicholas Pascarella, as he was selected to join the Nassau County Police Department Youth Council. This program began as an initiative from the New York State Governor to address police reform. Students involved in this program discuss how they would like to see changes in the Nassau Police Department and across the country.
In addition to this, Nicholas and another Middle-High School student Leah Iglesias were acknowledged for their participation in the Nassau BOCES Long Island Regional Virtual Student Forum. During the forum, which took place in November, selected student participants made their voices heard and shared their thoughts regarding important topics like remote/hybrid learning, social justice, social-emotional health and more. Their feedback provided insight as to what can be improved and enhanced during these difficult times.
The district is proud of both Nicholas and Leah on their wonderful achievements.
