ONE FINAL YEAR

Children at the Cathedral Nursery School enjoyed a picnic on September 15th to kick off the school’s 52nd year. The school has announced that it will close at the end of this school year.

Cathedral Nursery to close down at end of school year


On September 20 the seven members of Cathedral Nursery School’s board of directors unanimously agreed to end school operations and close down the school once the 2019-2020 school year — the final year of a license agreement with the Village of Garden City for its occupancy of the cottages at St. Paul’s — concludes, on June 30, 2020. In July […]

Should school buses have STOP-arm cameras?


At the Board of Education’s September 24 meeting Schools Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kusum Sinha explained that the district has engaged in conversations with Village of Garden City officials, “to see what is feasible and what’s not, and how to go about it” regarding new legislation passed by New York State August 6 to allow installations of “STOP-arm” cameras on […]

A WORD FROM THE PUBLISHER

A loss to the community

We were sorry to hear that the Cathedral Nursery School will be closing its doors at the end of the next school year. The school has been an important part of the community for over half a century, and it is a great loss. While it is understandable that the Village may eventually need to have the school move if […]

Democracy at Work??

To the Editor: I attended the board of trustees meeting the other night on Thursday, September 19th and one of the agenda topics was a vote by the board to give an additional $625,000 on top of the original $1 million allotted to the stabilization of the St. Paul’s building. These monies now add up to approximately $6 million spent […]

A great idea

To the Editor: I read with amazement last week’s letter from Nicholas Rigano about the possibility of bring NYC water to Garden City. I am in. How great would it be to drink clean water straight from our taps! No drinking industrial pollutants from the past or our own pollutants that we are contributing. (Why do we allow our landscapers […]

Proposal doesn’t make sense

To the Editor After many years of ignoring the subject, I recently attended two Board of Trustees’ meetings which included discussion of what to do with the St. Paul’s building: The September 12th meeting included presentations by engineering consultants Thornton Tomasetti who propose a three stage effort to stabilize (see below) the building. The first phase (labeled Immediate Action) would […]

A heavy heart

To the Editor: It is with a heavy heart that I draft this letter upon hearing that our beloved Cathedral Nursery School will be closing its doors at the end of 2019- 2020 school year. Cathedral Nursery School has been a staple in the lives of residents of our Village and surrounding communities for generations. The warmth of the administration […]

Overreach by State Education Dept.

To the Editor: I am alarmed by new proposals being considered by The New York Board of Regents that will mandate direct oversight of non-public schools by the superintendent of schools of public school districts. Under this new mandate, the superintendent of schools would have the power to approve or disapprove of a private school’s curriculum, testing and course of […]
