The next budget hearing is on Monday, May 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Wheatley Auditorium.

As a result of the cancellation of all after-school activities due to weather conditions, Parent University was canceled on March 3. Parent University has been rescheduled for Wednesday, April 29, beginning at 6:45 p.m. As part of this joint venture with the Roslyn Schools, the event will be held at Roslyn High School. Reregistration is now open. The same workshops will be held yet you must reregister. If you have any questions, contact director of Guidance Greg Wasserman by email at or call, 516-333-7506.

As a result of the change in date of Parent University, the Wheatley Science Research Symposium has been moved from April 29 to May 21. This is an opportunity to interact with our science research students in grades 9 to 12, when they display their research projects in Wheatley’s lobby. Thereafter, residents will have an opportunity to listen to our 12th grade research students when they present their research in Room 450.

There has been a lot of press coverage regarding Frank Bruni’s new book, Where You Go Is Not Who You’ll Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania. Bruni’s book is intended to give students and their parents a new perspective on the college admissions competition with an eye to eliminating the anxiety it can provoke.
