SCHOOL BOARD REORGANIZATION EXPLAINED
The Board of School Directors is required by law to hold a Reorganization Meeting during the first full week of December each year. The reorganization process begins when the Board elects a new President and Vice President. The newly elected Board President then announces the upcoming Legislative Board Meetings for the year. Finally, the new Board President reassigns seating at the Board table and begins the process of reassignment of Co-chairs for the various committees that represent the District.

STORY OF THE WEEK: A GIFT OF THANKS FROM THE HOLLO FAMILY
On October 24th 2012 Matt Hollo was struck by a vehicle while running as a member of the Cheltenham High School Cross Country Team. Matt was severely injured as a result of the accident. Cheltenham Township police officer Chris Gallagher was teaching a DARE class at Glenside Elementary School and immediately responded, as the accident was nearby. In addition, paramedics Andy Swartz and James Randolph responded with the ambulance, and Assistant Chief Mike Smaltini responded in his vehicle. Matt was transported to Einstein Trauma Center in critical condition. Over time and with much work, Matt completely recovered and is now a college sophomore. The Hollo family has always believed that the actions by Officer Gallagher and the EMS team members were critical in saving Matt’s life.
Each year (since 2012) the Hollo family has dropped off food for EMS crew members as their way of saying thank you. This year they insisted on feeding everyone at the Township's bi-monthly EMS meeting. Mrs. Hollo gave a short talk to everyone again expressing her thanks for the role they played in assisting her son on October 24, 2012.
