Sandy will not be forgotten. The Village of Garden City donated a slab of a red oak tree toppled byRead More the Superstorm to the Garden City Bird Sanctuary.

Hi Sally, when mentioning 10 days missed, I was referring to Garden City middle schoolers, who wereRead More out beginning Oct. 30 and returning Nov. 13 (schools were closed Nov. 12 to observe Veterans Day). Other students actually missed a minimum of 5 days, returning Nov. 6 while others like those attending Hemlock, returned Nov. 7, missing 6 days of instruction (Oct. 30-returning Nov. 7).

Hey look, another derogatory comment from Sally. So Sally, does the "Kingdom" just handRead More out good grades because the community expects it? Who put the bee in your bonnet?
