Mr. Bonanno Appointed New HBT Principal


Dear Syosset Community,

I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Kevin Bonanno as Principal, H.B. Thompson Middle School. Mr. Bonanno succeeds Mr. Kassebaum as Principal, who announced his retirement this spring after 24 years of service to the Syosset community. The Board and Administration extend a sincere thank you to Mr. Kassebaum for his many years of service and dedication to the Syosset Central School District. Although Mr. Kassebaum left very big shoes to fill, we are fortunate to have strong leadership within the District, and I am confident Mr. Bonanno is best qualified to continue the tradition of excellence at H.B. Thompson for which Syosset schools are known.

Mr. Bonanno has served as the Assistant Principal of H.B. Thompson for the past 11 years. He entered the District as a 7th grade social studies teacher in 1998 and later became an Administrative Assistant prior to his appointment as Assistant Principal. He has proven to be an effective and thoughtful leader, who has bolstered the Syosset principles of educating and preparing our students to be responsive to a continually changing world.  

Please join me in congratulating Mr. Bonanno and wishing him well in his new position. 

Dr. Tom Rogers
