Dear Community Residents,
On behalf of the members of the Board of Education, administration and students, I would like to express my appreciation to all who participated in this year’s 2013-2014 budget vote and trustee election. Through the passage of the proposed budget, our mutual commitment to provide a quality well-rounded education to our students will continue.
I am confident our students will bring pride to our school district and community through their ongoing success. I hope you will join me at the numerous student events and awards ceremonies still to come.

A Fun Day for Seniors Under the Stars!
There were twinkles in the eyes of senior citizens amidst twinkling stars decorating the Wantagh High School gymnasium as they spent a day enjoying food and festivities. It has been a tradition that Senior Citizen Fun Day is held the day after Junior Prom. The decorations are left in place and members of the high school General Organization Club (G.O. Club) host a day of fun for local senior citizens. The theme of this year’s junior prom was “A Night Under the Stars” and star decorations lined the hallways leading to the gym, hung from the ceiling and festooned the tables. Members of the G.O Club along with their advisor, Marie Cammallere, Superintendent Maureen Goldberg, high school Assistant Principal Jim Brown and Junior Class Advisor Deborah Arcuri helped serve delicious food from Gino’s Restaurant in Bellmore. After the meal, the guests were treated to a musical program of popular songs from different eras performed by the “Teensations” singing group. A number of the guests took to the dance floor and even encouraged some of the student volunteers to join them! Coffee and cupcakes followed the music and dancing. The day was not over, however, until a few rounds of the ever-popular BINGO were played and everybody left with a prize and a smile. The students enjoyed the interaction with their guests and the senior citizens were extremely grateful for their special day with their young hosts who made them feel like stars.
The Wantagh School District is happy to announce the appointment of Maureen Goldberg as the permanent superintendent of schools. The Wantagh Board of Education approved the appointment at its meeting Thursday night at the Wantagh High School. Mrs. Goldberg, who was previously principal at Forest Lake Elementary School, has served in this administrative position since September. Michael Cucci, Board of Education President, acknowledged that Mrs. Goldberg, “possesses the leadership skills and commitment to lead our district to the next level of success and we look forward to working together to achieve our mutual goals.”
