In an effort to engage community members and parents from throughout the district, the district held its Jan. 28 board of education meeting at Mills Pond Elementary School.

To start the meeting, the Mills Pond fourth grade chorus performed two songs for the audience and board members: “Lean on Me” and “Don’t Stop Believin’.” Afterward, members of the Mills Pond Cares Club, a community service group, presented a check for $785 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation from money raised at their healthy snacks sale.

The board of education recognized two students who were named Regeneron Science Talent Search scholars – Stephanie Lin from Smithtown High School West and Caitlin Wilkinson from Smithtown High School East. 

Following the recognitions, Kira Conte, a science research student from Smithtown High School East, presented her social-emotional learning research and findings conducted at Mills Pond Elementary titled “Think Positive! The effect of Growth Mindset Training on Academic Attitude.”
