The District was excited to welcome 39 new staff and faculty members to the Leon J. Campo Salisbury Center on Aug. 28 for the annual new teacher orientation.
Assistant Superintendent for Personnel and Administration Anthony Russo greeted the group to open the day of meetings and welcomes. Mr. Russo explained the policies and procedures before handing off to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth A. Card, Jr. for a welcome address and further district information.
The day continued with the annual “exploration” of the district’s nine buildings as Barnum Woods Elementary School Principal Gregory Bottari once again led the bus tour. Mr. Bottari was joined this year by Director of Literacy and Funded Programs Frank Lukasik. The duo educated the group about each building while also testing their knowledge of East Meadow history.
Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Dr. David Casamento concluded the day with closing remarks. He encouraged the teachers to focus on continuous improvement for student success to ensure great happens here.
The district wishes the best of luck to the 39 new members of the district!
