On April 17, Manhasset Public Schools held a Facilities Showcase at Manhasset Secondary School, offering residents the opportunity to tour newly-renovated instructional spaces.

These renovations were completed as a result of the 2007 and 2014 bond referenda, as well as the district’s annual operating budgets, periodic capital reserve propositions and the generosity of multiple school-community partners.

Manhasset High School students offered tours to those who attended, highlighting spaces such as the renovated science labs, art rooms, cafeteria, media center and music rooms, among others.

“The facilities are amazing,” said Anne Dorogoff, community resident and parent to three Manhasset High School alumni. “I spent a lot of time in this building as a volunteer while my children were in school and it’s just incredible to see the building improvements that have been made. Our community’s investment was well worth it.”

Chiara Marino, a sixth-grade student at Shelter Rock Elementary School, toured the Secondary School with her aunt, also a parent of a Manhasset High School alumnus.

“I’m really interested in music and art,” Marino said. “So, it’s really neat to see the new spaces that I’ll have the opportunity to work in when I go to school here.”

“On behalf of the entire district, we thank the Manhasset community for its continued support,” said Superintendent Vincent Butera. “Through your support, we are able to provide our students with greater opportunities for learning, exploration and growth.”

For residents that could not attend the Facilities Showcase, a video highlighting the work that has been completed at all schools can be found on the district’s website,
