Superintendent Creeden spoke Wednesday at a press conference where it was announced the Middletown school district will receive a $50,000 grant to open at Community CoLab space on North Street. This will provide the district with a place to provide programming and support to scholars and their families in the heart of Middletown, away from our school campuses. It is also another example of the growing partnership between our school district and the City of Middletown.
Mrs. Creeden is surrounded by Board of Education President Rose Tobiassen and Board of Education Vice President Freddie Williams. City of Middletown Mayor Joe DeStefano and Town of Wallkill Supervisor George Serrano attended the conference, along with members of each community's local government.
Our thanks goes to Speaker of the NYS Assembly Carl Heastie and Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther (both behind Ms. Tobiassen) for securing this grant.
