Bohemia, NY --- On Friday, October 13th Anthony Felicio, Jr., President of the Connequot Teachers Association (CTA), hosted a ‘Welcome Back’ Dinner Reception for new teachers, as well as over 100 veteran teachers. Lombardi’s on the Bay was the venue for this year’s event, as veterans welcomed their new colleagues who will be teaching in the district’s 10 school buildings.
Felicio welcomed the new and returning teachers saying, “It is a pleasure welcoming our newest teachers to the Connetquot Teacher Association family. They are joining an elite group of educators. They are now part of the foundation that makes the Connetquot schools what they are, which is the bedrock that makes Connetquot the great community that it is. Welcome! The Connetquot School District includes the communities of Bohemia, Oakdale and Ronkonkoma.
Congratulations to all the new teachers as they begin their careers in the Connetquot School community, and Best Wishes for an outstanding year to veterans and newcomers alike!
