Dear Staff, Parents and Community Members,

I would like to thank each of you for your patience, interest and input throughout our search for the next superintendent.

It is with great pride and excitement that I announce the Board’s intention to adopt a contract at tomorrow night’s meeting between Dr. Lorna Lewis and the Malverne School District. As you will see in the article on this website and Facebook page, she brings with her a wealth of experience and perspective that we believe will enrich our educational system and continue our upward trajectory for years to come. She will begin with our district on Aug. 1.

We have arranged for a special Meet and Greet with Dr. Lewis on Thursday, March 5 beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the Malverne Performing Arts Center. You are all invited and encouraged to attend. I hope to see you then to join me and my fellow Board members in welcoming Dr. Lewis to our community.

On behalf of the Board, I would also like to thank Dr. Hunderfund and his administrative team for bringing our district to its current level of success. Our students are truly thriving and Dr. Hunderfund’s work here has been integral in that. We wish him much health and happiness in his retirement.

Sincerely,

Danielle Hopkins, Board of Education President
