The Dec. 18 Board of Education meeting featured a pair of special presentations.

The Bethpage Education Foundation presented a donation of $10,000 to the Board that will be used towards STEM projects and equipment in the district. The Educational Foundation is an organization that seeks to provide meaningful assistance to the educational program in the district.

“The support from the Educational Foundation is unmatched,” said Superintendent of Schools David Schneider. “This donation will help to further the growing STEM program in our district for our students and teachers.”

Author and Charles Campagne Elementary School fourth-grader Sophia Marullo also sat in front of the Board to speak about her recently published book “Sophia N.R. Marullo and the Crazy Days.” Sophia started writing the book when she was seven years old and was published when she was eight years old and in third grade at Charles Campagne.

The book is written and illustrated to describe the zany adventures of Sophia’s imagination! Inspired by the Junie B. Jones series, Sophia chronicles her crazy days at home and school. 
Sophia was generous enough to sign a book for each Board member that was distributed by Schneider at the end of her presentation.

“We look forward to reading Sophia’s first book and look forward to her next adventures,” said Schneider.
