Peggy Marenghi was reelected as board president at the Levittown Public Schools’ recent annual board of education reorganization meeting. Jennifer Messina, who served as secretary this past year, was elected as vice president. James Moran, a longtime board member reelected in 2021, was appointed as secretary.
The three board members were sworn into office along with Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tonie McDonald and trustee Marianne Adrian, who was also reelected in 2021. Additionally, trustee Michael Pappas was nominated as temporary chairperson, Suzanne Mallozzi was reappointed as district clerk for the 2021-22 school year and Randi D’Ambrosio was appointed as acting district clerk.
During the following regular board of education meeting, Marenghi lauded the school community for a successful year and memorable graduation ceremonies.
“In light of everything going on in our community as far as the pandemic goes, we were able to keep our schools open for the most part, thanks to our superintendent, central office, teachers, aides, assistants, custodians and bus drivers,” Marenghi said.
“They truly came together as a team to accomplish what we needed to accomplish. I am very thrilled that the board, superintendent and central office attended the graduations at the different schools. We had graduation for MacArthur and Division at Hofstra University, outdoors in-person on the football field. The students were so thrilled and overjoyed. Then we had Wisdom, Salk, Northside, Summit, Gardiners, Lee Road, East Broadway and Abbey under the big top right here at the football field at Levittown Memorial. The students were very happy along with their parents. So, I just want to thank the entire Levittown educational community for providing everything you did to make it so successful.
