The near $20 million bond has passed with 726 Yes’s and only 297 No’s. The funds will be used for construction to a new wing to house music, performing and fine arts programs at Malverne High School. It will also allow for the renovation of the school’s classrooms for STEM engineering and research programs.
“This is a very important step for the future of the Malverne music department. Utilizing the proper space for our program is something that our students and the community has deserved for a long time. It’s very exciting!”
– Director, Mr. Johnson
During the evening Nov. 16, dozens of residents showed up to vote at facilities set up in Howard T. Herber Middle’s School’s gymnasium, while scores of others attended a student musical performance in Herber’s auditorium down the block. The performance was so heavily attended that it was standing room only for several dozen people. “It was packed so tightly with adults and children, and it really brings to mind that we don’ have enough space,” said Hunderfund, who added that the new wing could accommodate the school’s desire to create an orchestra, and will be a good space to hold guest lectures or debates.
“It’s the next big step for mankind in Malverne… and it feels good because it’s for posterity.”
– Superintendent, Dr. Hunderfund
