T

he life and struggles of 19th Century escaped slave and public activist Frederick Douglass came to life before the eyes of James Wilson Young Middle School’s seventh-graders when they attended an Interactive Assembly Program in the school’s auditorium. Throughout the program, the students had the chance to learn about this historic time period from Mr. Frederick Morsell’s first-person narrative. Some of the students are pictured here during the program.

Public Service Award

Stony Brook University autism expert John C. Pomeroy, M.D, received the 2013 Public Service Award from the New York Suffolk County Martin Luther King Jr. Commission at its 22nd Annual Awards Luncheon on January 18th at the Hyatt Regency in Hauppauge. Dr. Pomeroy was honored for his work with special needs children, said Florence Joyner, chairperson of the luncheon. “He has worked tirelessly to develop services for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders at Stony Brook and advocated for the local development of school programs and improved clinical services,� she said. Dr. Pomeroy is Associate Professor of Pediatrics & Psychiatry at Stony Brook University School of Medicine, Head of Division of Developmental Disabilities, and Founding Director of The Cody Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities at Stony Brook Children’s Long Island Children’s Hospital. He has served as Director of The Cody Center since its opening in 2001 and joined Stony Brook as the first faculty member in the Division of Child Psychiatry. In 1997, Dr. Pomeroy formed the Division of Developmental Disabilities within the Psychiatry Department at Stony Brook in collaboration with Lynda Geller, PhD. In 2001, with major philanthropic and University support,

including a gift of $2.5 million from Matt and Debra Cody of Port Jefferson, NY, The Cody Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities opened with Dr. Pomeroy serving as its Director. The Cody Center is now a division of the Department of Pediatrics at Stony Brook Long Island Children’s Hospital. “John has led a rapid expansion of clinical and community services for Autism and developmental disabilities at Stony Brook,� said Margaret McGovern, MD, PhD, Professor and Chairman, Department of Pediatrics, Stony Brook University School of Medicine, and Physician-in-Chief, Stony Brook Long Island Children’s Hospital. “Not only is he a leader in his clinical field, he has been an outstanding public servant and advocate for children with autism.� Dr. Pomeroy’s interest in the broader diagnostic concept of autism dates back to projects he began as a resident at the University of Iowa. In 1984, he received the J. Franklin Robinson Award from the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. He has been the author of more than 70 articles, abstracts and book chapters, with an emphasis on two fields of interest: (1) diagnostic sub-typing of the autism spectrum and (2) the diagnosis and treatment of emotional/ behavioural disorders in individuals with cognitive or developmental

disabilities. In addition to his research interests, he has developed a broad range of clinical and training programs. In the 1990s, he received funding from New York State to develop a continuum of psychiatric care for dually diagnosed (MH/ MR) individuals on Long Island, and for a fellowship training program for child and adolescent psychiatrists to specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of individuals with dual diagnosis. More recently, he served as a principal collaborator in the formation of the Downstate Center of Excellence for Dual Diagnosis, a consortium of 30 agencies created to enhance staff training and expertise in recognition and management of mental disorders in persons with mental retardation or developmental disabilities. Initial funding was provided by the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council. Dr. Pomeroy received his medical degree from the University of London in 1973. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. In 2009, he was named 2009 Health Care Professional of the year by the Mental Health Association in Suffolk County and received the Physician of Distinction award from the Nassau Physicians Foundation.

Welcome Santa Santa Claus, also known as Old Saint Nick and Kris Kringle, visited with kindergartners at Connetquot’s John Pearl Elementary School, in Bohemia, on December 18th. According to school principal Ms. Susan White, “ …students at John Pearl enjoyed today’s visit by Kris Kringle (AKA Santa Claus!). Parents and

students enjoyed breakfast with classmates, family and teachers. Santa had the chance to talk to the youngsters about this exciting holiday season, answer their questions, and distribute little gifts to each of them. He also took the time to have parents take pictures of their little one’s sitting on Santa’s lap. Under the direction of music teacher

Mrs. Bonnie Verron, the children sang holiday tunes for the parents, and enjoyed celebrating their annual ‘feast’ with tasty treats. Santa joins Ms. White and the entire John Pearl community in wishing students, parents, friends and classmates a safe, enjoyable holiday season!

There’s good news for those concerned about cholesterol and their health. They may have a new way to regulate their cholesterol level that doesn’t involve prescription drugs. Cholesterol is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. It is used to make many of our hormones, vitamin D and bile acids, which aid fat digestion and keep cell membranes intact. How much you have is based on a combination of genetics and lifestyle. However, too much LDL cholesterol—often referred to as “bad cholesterol”—can slowly build and contribute to heart disease and clogged arteries. Some will try to manage their cholesterol with diet and exercise while others will turn to prescription medications. A New Approach One of the latest approaches to managing

cholesterol involves taking a nutritional supplement. One such supplement, called Sytrinol, is described as a safe, effective cholesteroland triglyceride-lowering nutrient that is designed to begin working in 30 days. The supplement is made up of a blend of powerful antioxidants including polymethoxylated flavones (PMFs) and a range of palm (alpha, delta and gamma) tocotrienols. According to a published clinical study, Sytrinol was able to significantly lower total cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides. The formula is also said to increase HDL levels. This is often referred to as the “good cholesterol” because of the way it transports LDL cholesterol away from the heart and back into the bloodstream.

ingredients in Sytrinol is a group of compounds derived from the peels of citrus fruits. The two most common are tangeretin and nobiletin, which are described as extremely potent bioflavonoids. Another ingredient is a group of palm tocotrienols, which are members of the vitamin E family and are extracted from the fruit of the palm tree. Like vitamin E, palm tocotrienols control antiinflammatory responses and degrade a key enzyme used by the liver to produce cholesterol.

Flashbacks & Fun Times By: Jamie Lynn Ryan You never know what you might find when cleaning out the closet. I recently came across a handful of those origami-type, square and triangle-folded notes that we all used to exchange like crazy back in middle school. I remember writing dozens upon dozens of them and slipping them through the vents of my friends’ lockers between classes, then excitedly waiting for them to write back so I would have my own “mail” to look forward to the next time I stopped at my own locker. How funny. It’s too bad I didn’t save them all, as I’m sure they would have made for some fascinating reading all these

years later. Notes full of class schedules, song lyrics, lists of boys we had crushes on…the usual pre-teen drama that seemed oh-soimportant at the time. We even developed our own language of sorts, with abbreviations and symbols that (so we thought) only we could comprehend. Such innocence. And then there were the “love” letters, those cute little poems surrounded by lots of hearts and x’s and o’s, and of course the requisite “A.A.F.” signifying the “always and forever” mentality that all 12 year-olds seem to have with regard to “love.” As corny as it all sounds now, there was definitely an underlying sweetness to those types of notes, a sense that somehow, with that

scrawled message of affection, everything was “official.” It’s a wonder, thinking back on it, how any of us managed to get any work done in between composing these little nuggets of wisdom – because you know they all had to be written during class time. After all, how else to make sure our friends were continuously updated on our comings and goings from the last 40 minute class! So many memories encapsulated by those little folded pieces of paper. A slice of life, preserved for all eternity on an 8-1/2 x 11-inch piece of loose-leaf paper. It doesn’t get any better than that. Can’t wait to see what other treasures my closet will uncover.

Shredding The Competition

Stony Brook University is one of 600+ universities internationally to participate in RecycleMania 2013, which pits colleges and universities to compete for stewardship bragging rights over which institution can reduce, reuse and recycle the most waste. Over an eight-week period from February 3rd to March 30th, participating schools compete in various categories measuring the success of their recycling, waste reduction and sustainability efforts. “We are stepping up our efforts to win it all this year,” said James O’Connor, Director of Sustainability and Transportation Operations at Stony Brook University. “In order to promote recycling and waste reduction, we are offering complimentary shredding services, recycling receptacle drop off for office spring cleanings, electronics recycling and waste minimization through junk mail elimination.” In 2012, Stony Brook University reached a pinnacle of success in RecycleMania by placing 17th out of 296 entries in the competition’s Gorilla category, which ranks universities on the total weight of bottles, cans, cardboard and recycled paper collected. This category’s ranking was the highest of any college or university in New York State. Stony Brook also placed eighth out of 67 entries in the E-Waste category for the

total weight of recycled electronic waste. “We are proud of our RecycleMania 2012 success and can’t wait for this year’s competition which starts on February 3. Stony Brook continues to make substantial improvements in the field of recycling by increasing the number of receptacles, installing new signage and increasing the amount of products we recycle,” said O’Connor. The Office of Sustainability is also supporting the Project 50 Forward Managed Output Project (MOP) led by the Division of Information Technology and Procurement Office. MOP is reviewing paper usage, working to decrease the University’s carbon footprint and to develop solutions to reduce, recycle and implement output savings. “During the past year this project saved 800,000 pages per semester simply by removing student cover pages from TLT Sinc Site

printing output.” said David Ecker, Information Technology Manager. “The Library has also installed several multifunction devices that allow students to scan important library materials into their personal USB drive at no charge. Plans for the future include implementing a comprehensive University toner recycling program and looking for ways to streamline document workflow throughout the campus.” Beginning in February the University community can track RecycleMania results by visiting: w w w. s t o n y b r o o k . e d u / recyclemania. For additional information or to learn how to participate in RecycleMania, please contact the Office of Sustainability at 631.632.9673, 631.632.6219 or via e-mail at: sustainability@ stonybrook.edu.

Stony Brook University Cancer Center’s support group facilitators, April Plank, DNP, and Kathy Shurpin, PhD, RN, received the 4th Annual Lung Cancer Support Group Award from the Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA) in a ceremony on January 22nd at the Cancer Center. The award was presented to Plank and Shurpin by Amy Copeland, MPH, Associate Director of Support Services for the LCA. Based in Washington, D.C., the LCA created the award to recognize excellent support group facilitators and to inspire and encourage the creation of more lung cancer support groups throughout the U.S. Award winners have shown great dedication to those affected by lung cancer in spite of the challenges that often come with sustaining these support groups. “Anyone fighting this disease needs their family members and loved ones to rally around them,” said Yusuf Hannun, MD, Director, Stony Brook University

Cancer Center, Vice Dean, Cancer Medicine, and the Joel Kenny Professor of Medicine. “We are extremely proud of April and Kathy for their outstanding contribution to the Cancer Center and this wonderful recognition from the Lung Cancer Alliance.” “April and Kathy are truly committed to making their group a safe and supportive place,” Copeland said. “They are warm, compassionate and enthusiastic about the group and think creatively about how to provide support even when someone is not well enough to attend.” At Stony Brook, the Lung Cancer Support Group provides a place for patients to gather each month to share information and provide mutual support to others who are on the same journey. The group is one of dozens of support services provided to patients and community members at the Cancer Center. In keeping with the Cancer Center’s mission, these programs offer a wide

variety of respite, advocacy and hope – not only to the patient, but to family members and caregivers as well. “It is truly an honor for Stony Brook University Cancer Center to be given this award from such a prestigious organization,” Plank said. “There are few words to express the sheer joy one receives in observing the process that often takes place in those who become regular group attendees. Co-facilitating this group of patients and their loved ones along their journey with lung cancer has been one of my greatest career rewards.” “It is a privilege to have the opportunity to serve patients and families experiencing lung cancer in this support group,” Shurpin said. “These patients and their family members provide not only support for each other but insights into the cancer experience that inform my teaching, research and practice.” For more information, call 631.638.1000.

When he arrived he found the children and staff in their colorful pajamas, making tasty pancakes. The

Assistant Superintendent Mr. Lou Malerba was on hand to help Santa distribute sweet treats to the youngsters.

Each of the students had an opportunity to suggest what they might like to see under their tree for the holidays, for mom & dad, brothers and sisters, and perhaps for themselves!

Lesson From The Past The life and struggles of 19th century escaped slave and public activist Frederick Douglass came to life before the eyes of James Wilson Young Middle School’s seventhgraders when they attended an interactive assembly program in the school’s auditorium. Actor Frederick Morsell has been traveling the country as Mr. Douglass since the late 1980s,

speaking with hundreds of students and adults about race relations, gender equality and the events of Mr. Douglass’ life. During the assembly, the students mentally traveled back in time to a period when slavery was still legal in America and prevalent in every American’s everyday life. Throughout the program, the students had the chance to learn about this historic time

period from Mr. Morsell’s first-person narrative, which detailed the upbringing of Mr. Douglass in the South and how he transformed himself from a slave to a free man. The students were captivated by the program’s messages and the unique historical perspective it provided and left instilled with the mission to take advantage of every opportunity provided to them.

Did you know that it takes only five to 10 minutes to potentially save three lives? That was just one of the statistics learned by James Wilson Young Middle School seventh-graders when they attended the New York Blood Services Little Doctors program at their school. As a complement to their science curriculum on body systems, and as a fitting kickoff to the community blood drive held at the school later in the month,

the students attended a presentation by Blood Services representative Marty Scharf to learn more about the body’s circulatory system. During the presentation, Mr. Scharf spoke about why blood cannot be artificially manufactured, the functions of the different components of blood, and the importance of type testing as well as the testing that is performed on donated blood to ensure its safety. Acting as information

specialists, the students were charged with sharing the facts they learned with their family members and discussing the importance of qualified adults becoming donors. During the school’s drive, which is scheduled for January 30th from 3:15 to 9 p.m. and open to the community, the students will volunteer at service stations to provide paperwork and post-donation treats to those who give blood.

Flapjack Fundraiser

Students and staff volunteered to greet, seat, serve, and clean up. ESBOCES School Nurse Sue O’Neill was instrumental in coordinating the fundraiser. She said, “The students engage in a variety of fundraisers throughout the school year but when we heard about the Flapjack Fundraiser we thought it was a great idea and different. We knew it was going to be great when friends, family members, and ESBOCES staff members arrived at 8:00 a.m. and many were still coming in the door at 9:50 a.m.” While people were waiting for breakfast, students from the ESBOCES Automotive Technology programs were in the parking lot offering free service for patron’s cars. They checked car

fluids, air pressure, and made sure that car inspections were current. Students from ESBOCES Personal Training, Clinical Medical Assisting, Cosmetology, and the Barbering programs volunteered to come down to Applebee’s to share information about their experiences at ESBOCES. Alexis Felicio, Sachem CSD said, “I love the Clinical Medical Assisting program. My teacher Maryann DeMillio is great. I’m getting trained in a real work environment and the skill and knowledge will help me in college.” ESBOCES employees Denise Adamo and Grace Ramirez-Wright from the Administration Center attended because they wanted to support the students. Grace said, “Breakfast is my favorite meal and the students are

what we are all about.” Applebee’s Manager Al Bongiorno said, “We are always striving to build community relationships. It’s a pleasure to be a part of a worthwhile cause and help these students attain their goals and have the opportunity to compete up in Syracuse.”

Performance Review Connetquot Teachers Association (CTA) President Anthony Felicio, Jr., is pleased to announce that the Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) between the Connetquot Central School District and the Connetquot Teachers Association has been accepted in its entirety by the New York State Education Department. Felicio said “Through many hours of hard work, mutual respect, negotiation, and the unending desire to formulate an APPR that

improves student learning and is fair to teachers, we are proud of our combined efforts.” Education Law §3012c, establishes a new statewide comprehensive evaluation system for classroom teachers, and building principals, based on multiple measures of effectiveness.

teachers or child care providers. ECE Teacher Gina Wagner said, “It’s important that the students get comfortable using the library. This is about career awareness. Whether they secure jobs as teachers, teacher assistants, caregivers, or nannies, they should know how to access books and the other resources libraries offer.” They learned that everyone can benefit from the varied resources and most of them are free. Knowing the difference between age-appropriate books, like picture books and chapter books is important. Ms. Wagner said, “Suppose they get a position as a teacher assistant and are asked to create a craft or read a story to preschoolers. They need to know where to find that in a library. They need a real book.” The library is a great place to gain access to the Internet and learn how to use technology too. It’s a gathering place and a social place. It’s a place to go to get out of the house and away from the TV set. Librarian Ms. Davis (seated) demonstrated the computer capabilities and advised the students about the technology available to them at the Connetquot Public Library. ESBOCES students standing around Ms. Davis are: Leighann S., Connetquot CSD, Brooke P., Sachem CSD, Annie G., Sachem CSD, Anthony C., Middle Country CSD, and

Sabrina S., Sachem CSD. Ms. Wagner said, “I tell my students that they can bring a younger sibling or a parent to the library. They can get access to a computer that they may not have at home. They can read books, hear music, participate in a workshop, or learn to paint. They can even watch a movie or play games on a computer.” The programs and services that libraries offer for children, teens, adults, and seniors appear in their newsletters. The Connetquot Public Library boasts a 12-page newsletter that can be accessed via their website http://www. connetquotlibrary.org/ or hard copies are available at the library. The tour of the library was an invaluable experience for the students especially when they were advised that they can enhance their resume, gain experience, and community service credits by volunteering at some libraries.

Winter Concert

On Thursday evening, December 20th, Mr. Jon-Michael Lasher, Connetquot School District Director of Fine Arts & Music Education, welcomed an enthusiastic full house to the district’s annual Winter Concert. Held at the Eric Martinsen Auditorium on the Connetquot HS campus, the event showcased the talents of the school’s Wind Ensemble, Treble Choir, Symphony Orchestra and Concert Choir. The event also provided an opportunity for a traditional reunion of Concert Choir graduates, several of whom sang on this same stage back as far back as 1968! According to Mr. Lasher, “The Connetquot Music Department celebrated it’s 50 year anniversary by inviting alumni to participate in this year’s concert. These alumni from the 1960’s to 2012

joined old, and made new, friends as they joined the Concert Choir on their Finale’ performance of Handel’s Messiah.” As the alumni were called up on stage Lasher asked several to introduce themselves, including their graduation year. Many of the ‘senior’ alumni were cheered on by their spouses, and children, as they prepared for their ‘encore’ performance! “As a 1992 Connetquot graduate, and now district Director of Fine Arts, I am so proud to help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of this wonderful school” said Lasher. “Over the years there have been hundreds of outstanding performances and shows in this auditorium. We are proud to have so many of our students go on to wonderful music, and acting, careers upon graduation. It is a credit to the talent, community support and wonderful

instructors that have helped create this level of pride in our students.” Connetquot Board of Education Trustee Mrs. Kim Pepe was on hand to congratulate the students, and directors, for this outstanding 50th Anniversary Winter Concert. Mr. Lasher expressed his thanks to the following directors and accompanists for their efforts to make this Winter Concert so special: Mr. Gregory Johnson, Mrs. Elizabeth Owens, Mrs. Jenna Micalizzi, Mr. Peter Coffin, Mr. Brad Drinkwater, Mr. James Nagle. He also thanked the stage crew for their support. The Connetquot community looks forward to the music department’s continued growth, and determination to make it, and our students, among the best in the country.
