During the Levittown Public Schools' annual Board of Education reorganization meeting on July 2, the board reelected Peggy Marenghi as board president and Marianne Adrian as board vice-president. In addition, trustee James Moran was nominated as temporary chairperson and Elizabeth Appelbaum was reappointed as district clerk for the 2018-19 school year.
The board members were sworn into office along with Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tonie McDonald. Following the reorganization meeting, the district's regular board of education meeting was called to order. The board, along with central administrators, Division Avenue High School Principal John Coscia and General Douglas MacArthur High School Principal Joseph Sheehan, recognized both the Division Avenue High School baseball team and the MacArthur High School baseball team for their successful season. Both teams advanced to the playoffs this year with Division Avenue High School earning the title of county finalists. The student-athletes were recognized with a certificate for their achievements and their coaches Tom Tuttle (Division) and Steve Costello and John Towers (MacArthur) were praised for a job well done.
"It's always a pleasure to go to all of our games that we have in Levittown," said Marenghi. "Our students really do us proud on the field and act like gentlemen."
