In celebration of School Board Recognition Week, which is sponsored by the New York State School Boards Association to recognize school board members for their commitment to New York public school children, North and South High School students attended the November board meeting to recognize the dedicated trustees who volunteer their service on the Great Neck Public Schools Board of Education.

North High students Kelly Chau, Natascha Hakim, Oliver Pour and Joshua Wigler presented a custom GNPSopoly board to each member of the board. Modeled after the board game Monopoly, the framed GNPSopoly board features properties named after our schools, annual activities and successful initiatives.

South High students Hyeonsu (Helen) Ji and Jingchen (James) Jian recited an original poem and presented copies to each board member. The poem, which also had a board-game theme, communicated the students’ appreciation to the board members for their tireless efforts.
