In honor of School Board Recognition Month, the Board of Education was recognized at their recent meeting on Oct. 26. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Bossert commended the Board trustees for their tireless efforts.

“Sometimes hard work behind the scenes goes unnoticed,” said Dr. Bossert, “but not yours. We see and appreciate all you do for this district.”

Members of the board were presented with a proclamation of outstanding dedication from New York State Senator Carl Marcellino, a certificate of appreciation from Western Suffolk BOCES and, from the administration, an Elwood jersey with their names on the back. 

James H. Boyd Intermediate School Principal Dr. Denise Toscano also addressed the board. Dr. Toscano expressed her thanks for their willingness to host nErDCampLI—an exciting literary learning and networking event happening on Nov. 4. At this event, the district will host over 50 authors, and over 400 participants from all over Long Island. 

Additionally, Nancy Barkocy was recognized for her retirement. Ms. Barkocy served Elwood as the superintendent’s secretary for 20 years. Dr. Bossert and the Board all expressed their best wishes for her. 

“You were the backbone of the central office for many years,” said Vice President James Tomeo. “You will be greatly missed.”
