As kindergarteners, current Levy Lakeside School sixth graders left their mark on Superintendent of Schools Dr. Dominick Palma’s office when he was first appointed as Superintendent seven years ago. At the time, they arrived at his office and with the help of their kindergarten teachers, teaching assistants and art teacher Alexandra Muzek, and placed their little handprints on his office walls. These students recently returned to place their sixth grade handprints on the wall.

Dr. Palma said the kindergarten handprints have served as a constant reminder to remain focused on benefiting the children of Merrick.  “The addition of their sixth grade handprints will serve to remind me of the growth that children make during their years with us,” said Dr. Palma. “As our district motto says, their time here marks the beginning of many bright futures.”
