We wish Rebecca well

General News, People
  On behalf of everyone at HBA, we all wish Rebecca best wishes as she moves onto her new adventure. Words are inadequate to express our gratefulness and appreciation of the incomparable work performance and attitude she has displayed during her 33 years with HBA. After starting out at HBA, as a temporary receptionist (in 1985), Rebecca has done just about everything (except drafting and design) –specifications, shop drawings, marketing proposals, IT, purchasing, office management, building management and basic bookkeeping, professional services contracts, DOD fee proposals, human resources, birthday treat baker, event coordinator, stand-in for Santa, and so on. She has been a valuable and well respected member of our team. Saying goodbye is never easy, especially to someone who has been such a valued team member. We wish you all the best now and into the future.

These spaces are both much larger than their current space, which will allow for more space for the students to run, jump and play during physical education and space big enough to house all of the parents, grandparents, friends and family members eager to watch the students' productions and achievements in the Cafeteria!   The new Cafeteria and Gymnasium are located in the back of the site (furthest from Great Neck Road) because after construction is completed, the front door will move from its current location to the side of the school, facing Great Neck Middle School. When meeting with the students, teachers, parents and other stakeholders during the design phase, the biggest concern that we heard was the site circulation. In the mornings when parents at John B. Dey Elementary School and Great Neck Middle School are trying to drop off their children, the buses are trying to pull in, and hundreds of commuters are traveling down Grea
