The district is thrilled to announce that Edward J. Bosti Elementary School physical education teachers Michael Oldis and Tara West have been named as the Suffolk Zone Elementary Physical Education Teachers of the Year by the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. 

The two educators were selected to receive this prestigious award courtesy of nominations put forward by Edward J. Bosti Elementary School Principal Laura Kimball, Director of Health, Physical Education, Athletics and Recreation Mark Dellecave and multiple students’ parents who spoke of their shining personalities and ability to incorporate fun and physically engaging activates into their physical education classes. 

Due to this recognition, they have each been rewarded with plaques signifying their accomplishment, and were invited to attend the NYS AHPERD’s 82nd annual conference, from Nov. 20-23, at the Turning Stone Convention Center. 

Additionally, it was noted that Mr. Oldis’ mother received this recognition as well when she was a physical education teacher in the district. 
“These two individuals make for an amazing team,” said Mrs. Kimball. “They work really well together, and they are a true asset to not only the Bosti community, but Connetquot as a whole.”
