The district’s unified basketball team members were honored at a recent Board of Education meeting for their successful inaugural season. High school Assistant Principal Kevin Bernier shared highlights of the team’s season and the support and encouragement that permeated the school.

“A culture of collaboration and inclusion emerged all around the building,” he said, as announcements were made, posters were created and students, teachers and administrators were motivated by the new friendships that formed among the team members. He also lauded the positive energy, leadership and sense of collaboration that has progressed throughout the season and how each student-athlete stepped out of their comfort zone to bring the team to a third-place win at the championship tournament at Farmingdale State University.
