Schools Get More Donations


schoolRecently the Great Neck School District Board of Education was delighted, and most appreciative, in granting approval for further donations to the school district. Each donation request was unanimously accepted.

Liz and Mat Silverman will donate a new swimming record board for the Great Neck North Middle School swimming pool. This new record board is to be the same size and dimension as the existing record board but will be easier to maintain for future records updates.

They noted that the old record board is in poor condition. In a request letter to the school board, the Silvermans said that this donation is in honor of their daughter, Andi Silverman and all of the Great Neck North varsity swim team record holders.

Andi has been swimming on the North varsity team for Coach Justin Cisario since she was in eighth grade and with his encouragement she was able to break the girls 100-yard backstroke for North High this past swim season.

Donations were also approved for various scholarship award funds. The Great Neck South High School Theatre South and the Great Neck South High School Fashion Club each made a donation to The Fran Harman Award for Excellence in the Performing Arts. Beverly Mann made a donation to The Jeff Sanders Memorial Award for Social Justice.

Joel and Adele Sandberg, Marian Bressel, and from Nancy and Stephen Einhorn all made donations to The Lewis E. Love Memorial Teaching Award. Richard Grunebaum, Susan Grunebaum, and Arthur and Dorothy Grunebaum contributed donations to The Joan Grunebaum Memorial Scholarship Fund.

The Lakeville Section of the National Council of Jewish Women graciously donated to the Parent-Child Home Program. The funds are to be used at the discretion of the Parent-Child Home Program’s program coordinator.
