Student success is the theme at Levittown’s board meeting

Several students from across the Levittown School District received commendations at the May 8 board of education meeting.

Students and their families from all 10 Levittown schools gathered at the Levittown Memorial Education Center to receive certificates or merit. Among the standout students were:

  • High achievers in science from Wisdom Lane and Jonas E. Salk middle schools and Division Avenue and General Douglas MacArthur high schools
  • All-County and L.I. String Festival Association performers from Abbey Lane, East Broadway, Gardiners Avenue, Lee Road, Northside and Summit Lane elementary schools, as well as the middle and high schools
  • Division Avenue artists whose work is displayed in the Heckscher Museum of Art’s Young Artists Exhibition

Additionally, MacArthur Principal Joseph Sheehan recognized the Class of 2024 valedictorian Zarif Jamal and salutatorian Benjamin Campbell. He commended the two students on their high academic achievements and commitment to their school and community. Both students received a plaque for their achievement.

Lastly, board of education trustees Marianne Adrian and James Moran each received Board Lifetime Achievement awards from the New York State School Boards Association. This is the highest award trustees can receive from NYSSBA, which recognizes their years of commitment to the Levittown board and attendance at several conferences, retreats and workshops.
