This is the third consecutive year Malverne has been included on this prestigious list, which ranks schools through an index formula utilizing the number of Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year.

To celebrate National Nutrition Month, members of Malverne High School’s Health and Wellness Club made a visit to Davison Avenue to meet with third-grade students. High school students taught the third-graders the importance of exercising and how to use the MyPlate to make healthy food choices. Together, students created their own MyPlate with pictures of different foods and had the opportunity to share with classmates the foods that they have selected for each food group. For more information about the MyPlate and healthy eating, visit ChooseMyPlate.gov.

Repeal the GEA – We Need Your Help

malvene.jpg

During the past four years, Malverne has seen a major decline in state aid due to the Gap Elimination Adjustment, or GEA, imposed by the state on districts like ours. Money is being collected from our taxpayers and not being used to directly benefit our students, and it is out of the district’s control. Intended to be a short-term solution to the state's financial crisis, it has now become an additional source of revenue used to subsidize what many then characterized as overspending, and now describe as a surplus. Because of the GEA, since 2009-10 an average of more than $1,000,000 has been withheld from our district annually, and despite the state “surplus,” an additional $876,123 has been withheld for the 2014-15 school year.

By accessing the link below, you can sign a petition showing your support for the repeal of the GEA. The deadline for signing the petition is March 19th. Signing the petition will only take a few moments of your time, but it could make a financial difference to our community and students!
