The Board of Education was treated to praise and presents at the Nov. 1 meeting as the district celebrated School Board Recognition Month.

Grand Voice, led by director Amanda Cantwell, sang “Give Us Hope” before Calhoun High School art teacher Heather Lohr and her students presented sections of a collaborative painting project to each member. On the back of each piece of artwork was a kindness challenge that each board member was inspired to fulfill a specific act of kindness. 

Some Merrick Avenue Middle School art students offered painted rocks with messages of kindness on them. 

“These gifts all go along perfectly with this year’s theme of teaching with kindness and caring,” said Superintendent John DeTommaso.
