The Board of Education and East Rockaway High School’s brightest students were recognized during the monthly BOE meeting on Oct. 19.

Rhame Avenue first-graders kicked off the evening by singing “Who Do We Appreciate?” to the Board. The students also presented the group with binders containing artwork created by the students. The celebration commemorated New York State School Boards Association’s School Board Recognition Week, which runs from Oct. 23-27. The week enables school board members to be recognized for their volunteer service to their schools and community.

“On behalf of the faculty and the staff of the East Rockaway School District, I would like to express our sincere appreciation to our Board of Education trustees for the significant time and unwavering dedication they give to their positions,” Superintendent of Schools Lisa Ruiz said. “I truly am honored to be beginning my fifth year in this district and to work with this consistent group of amazing individuals, who care so much about this community.” 

The Board and the East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School administration also honored SuperMasters students, who scored 95 or higher on one or more Regents exam. In addition, they recognized Advanced Placement Scholars, who were recognized for their successful performance on the May 2017 AP exams. 

“These are outstanding achievements,” Interim Principal Neil Lederer said. “It is my pleasure to recognize these truly academically gifted, studious young people.”
