Students and staff members at Old Country Road honored Superintendent of Schools Dr. Carl Bonuso with a heartwarming ceremony to commemorate his retirement this year.
Staff members planned the program as a surprise for Dr. Bonuso, who was under the impression that he was attending one of the school’s character traits assemblies. In actuality, however, the event was designed to celebrate his extraordinary characteristics, as students took turns speaking about the countless ways Dr. Bonuso has positively impacted the district during his four years of service. Dr. Bonuso was also presented with flowers and a beautiful poster that read, “You Put the ‘Super’ in Superintendent.”
“Empathy, flexibility, persistence, resilience, and most importantly, optimism,” said Principal Anthony Lubrano of Dr. Bonuso’s defining character traits. “I hope you continue to wield your superpowers after retirement. We will miss you and hope you will fly by and visit us sometime.”
