Excerpts from Our End-Of-Year Newsletter
A Message from AGATE’s Co-Presidents
We’re at the end of another eventful school year, so we have some final information to share and a lot of people to congratulate and thank!
First and foremost, we would like to thank you, our members, for supporting our work, attending our coffees and events, bringing us your ideas and concerns, and inspiring us with your deep care for our District and its children. Despite the continuing challenges of the pandemic, AGATE had a great year.
We would also like to thank our District’s teachers, staff, administrators and Board of Education for their hard work and dedication to our children. We are especially grateful to Dr. Hynes, Dr. Meoli and Dr. Pernick for the productive meetings we have had this year and to our BOE trustees for attending our Coffees and engaging with our members.
Best wishes to all for a wonderful and relaxing summer!
Kim Keiserman & Rebecca Hughes Parker
Congratulations to the Class of 2022
Toula J. Halperin Scholarship Recipients
Each year AGATE awards the Toula J. Halperin Scholarship to several Schreiber High School seniors who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement coupled with the passionate and dedicated pursuit of a talent, skill, or interest. On June 15th the scholarships were presented to: Hannah Brooks, Abraham Franchetti, Amanda Kaminsky, Matthew Pierre-Louis, Olivia Platt, and Kevin Taylor.
We congratulate each one of them on their outstanding achievements and wish them the best in their future endeavors!
AGATE Needs You!
In addition to the officers who have been elected to our Executive Board, AGATE’s leadership includes the members of our Advisory Board, which is composed of district liaisons, committee heads and others. We always welcome new members! For next year’s advisory board, we need liaisons for each school, and we are also looking for one or two website directors.
