normal home and working lives within two to six weeks. • The number of living organ donors is more than 6,000 per year - and one in four of these donors isn’t biologically related to the recipient. • A kidney from a living donor usually functions immediately, making it easier to monitor. Some deceased donor kidneys do not function immediately, and as a result, the patient may require dialysis until the kidney starts to function. • Nearly 100,000 people are currently waiting for a kidney. • 4,903 people died in 2012 waiting for a kidney. • 3,000 people are added to the waiting list for a kidney each month. • Depending on where you live, the wait for a deceased kidney can be anywhere from 3 to 10 YEARS!!! Matthew Botchler is

34 years old and is going through Stage 4 kidney failure. He is in dire need of a transplant. Since his blood type is O+, he is considered a universal donor, and unfortunately not a universal recipient. Potential donors must be blood type O+/ O-, generally healthy (DOES NOT smoke, drink excessively, DOES NOT have diabetes, or cardiac issues, and has two healthy kidneys) and must be between the ages of 18 to 40. On August 7th, 2013, Matthew heard the four most devastating words of his life: “Your kidneys are failing.” On December 26th, 2013, Matthew received a phone call from the Kidney Transplant team stating that he had been placed on the “Status 7” transplant list. This is only a small step in his long journey, as the “Status 7” list means that he must find his own living kidney donor.

A living donation is 212.659.8024 extremely important Julie Skowronski because a kidney from a Clinical Coordinator living donor lasts about Kidney Transplantation twice as long as one from a 212.659.6574 deceased donor. In addition, If you have any the waiting period for a questions, please contact deceased donor’s kidney is Matthew directly at approximately 7 to 9 years superchrgd331@aim.com in New York State. This is an extremely long time, especially since Matthew is expected to keep the nephrostomy tubes until his kidney transplant surgery. Every two to three months, Matthew must go through a painful medical procedure to have these tubes replaced to avoid infection and to maintain kidney stability. The following are the contact numbers for anyone that you may need to speak with if you are considering being a donor.

Matt’s Kidney Kampaign is dedicated to Matt’s quest to find a living donor and to bring awareness about living with kidney failure and chronic kidney disease.. Did you know… • When you donate a kidney, you give the gift of life. • A living donation is extremely important because a kidney from a living donor lasts about twice as long as one from a deceased donor. • Living donation does not change life expectancy, and after recovery from the surgery, most donors go on to live happy, healthy and normal lives. • The cost of the living donor’s evaluation, testing and surgery are generally paid for by the recipient’s Medicare or private health insurance. • The usual recovery time after the surgery is short, and donors can generally resume their

Malinowitzer, East Islip’s director of careers and student services. “I knew that my dream was to pursue an education in nursing,” she said. “But I was unsure of the next step to take in order to make my dream come true.” Malinowitzer recognized her problem and immediately suggested a solution, making her

more with this, Tiffany.’ I knew that he was proud of me, but believed I could achieve more.” Gruber soon joined a local pediatrician’s office, where she worked as a nurse for four years. Still, she did not feel completely fulfilled. “I loved working with and helping children, but I couldn’t help wanting more,” she said. After spending many hours talking with doctors and physician assistants about their schooling and career paths, she realized that what she truly wanted was not only to care for others in their time of need, but to diagnose and treat them as well. “Arriving at this conclusion was quite empowering yet frightening at the same time,” she said. “I finally knew what I wanted in life, but I knew the road ahead was not going to be easy. After a few weeks of deep thought, consideration and changing my mind

multiple times, I decided to go for it.” Researching physician assistant programs from all across the country led her back home to apply to the nearby Touro College School of Health Sciences in Bay Shore. She was accepted into Touro in 2009, successfully navigating two years of intense undergraduate studies in order to gain the credits necessary for applying to the school’s physician assistant program. “I was accepted into the 2011 physician assistant class and the next two years of my life were a blur,” she said. “The amount of time and sacrifice needed to complete a program of that standard is unimaginable, and at times I felt like giving up. It was at those challenging times that I could hear Mr. Malinowitzer’s voice in my head, telling me, ‘I expect you to do more with this,

Tiffany.’ Knowing that my family, friends and fiance had faith in me, and that with every day I was getting closer to my dream, I persevered, never looked back and never gave up.” Gruber graduated with high honors from Touro in September 2013, earning a bachelor’s degree in physician assistant studies. She was honored for both academic and clinical achievement, and was inducted into the Pi Alfa National Honors Society for Physician Assistants. After graduation, Gruber returned once more to East Islip to visit her old mentor. “It had been seven years since I had last seen Mr. Malinowitzer, yet it had only felt like yesterday,” she said. “When I told him all that I had accomplished, I could see such pride in his eyes, although there was no

For successful physician assistant Tiffany Gruber, an alumna of East Islip High School’s Class of 2005, the remarkable journey to her career destination began with a visit to the school’s guidance office. During her senior year, with graduation approaching and in search of direction, Gruber approached Israel

aware of the school’s affiliation with the BOCES Eastern Suffolk School of Practical Nursing Program and setting up an interview for her. “He not only solved my problem, but helped me take the first few steps of an amazing journey that lay ahead,” said Gruber. She was accepted into the BOCES Accelerated LPN Program and graduated in just a year. “I couldn’t believe that only one year earlier I had been in high school, unsure of what move to make next, and all of a sudden I was a licensed practical nurse, ready to start in the workforce,” she said. Soon after graduating from BOCES, Gruber visited her mentor Malinowitzer’s guidance office in East Islip. “The news was received with such pride and joy,” she recalled. “Yet at the end of our conversation, he said to me, ‘I expect you to do

look of surprise. It was as if he had expected me to come back with the type of news that I had just delivered. Throughout my journey, this was the most impactful experience of all – his faith and belief. When I couldn’t see my own path in life, Mr. Malinowitzer saw it clearly. He never doubted that I could achieve success, though I had never imagined it myself. I am so proud looking back at where I started, and seeing where I am today. I know that this would not have been possible without the faith, and persistence of Mr. Malinowitzer. Individuals like him who are our guides and leaders can alter the future for young adults

Flashback To Today There seems to be an obsession lately, especially on social networking sites, with “flashbacks” and “throwbacks” to times that, in hindsight, were happier and simpler. These moments are shared in the form of photos, videos, reminiscences of milestones and markers, all subtle indications that, for whatever reason, we are not overly happy in the now. But what of the present day? Some would contend that, to borrow from Billy Joel, this is the time to

Masters Of Multiplying

On a recent Friday afternoon, Gardiner Manor School 4th graders, along with students from Mr. Lorenz’s class, participated in a Multiplication Bee. The competition, organized by 4th grade teachers Mrs. Curtis and Mr. Dooley, was designed to encourage students to memorize their multiplication facts in a fun and exciting way. Two classes competed against each other at a time.

Mrs. Manzo, the 4th grade Dual Language teacher, rolled a pair of virtual 12-sided dice then projected onto a Smartboard. One student from each class read the numbers as quickly as possible and shouted out their answer; the first one to respond correctly earned a point for their class. Mrs. Nieto’s, Mr. Dooley’s and Mrs. Ridolfi’s/Mrs. McCracken’s classes earned

the top three scores. Mrs. Nieto’s class won the 2-foot tall, blue-and-gold trophy, while Mr. Spikoski noted to his students, “Next time! All you have to do is keep practicing your times tables.” The Multiplication Bee is sure to become a recurring event at GMS, where 4th graders strive to become “Masters of the Multiplication Universe.”

Love Of Reading Learning to read is the single most important component of a child’s education. Studies show that children who read at home are better prepared to succeed in school. Parents/People As Reading Partners (PARP) is a program that cements the necessary bond between home and school in order to encourage a love of reading in our students. PARP is a statewide PTA-

administered program that asks parents and/or caregivers to read with their children for at least fifteen minutes daily, recognizing that reading can be fun as well as informative. The daily activity of reading together strengthens a child’s reading and communication skills as well as the parent/child relationship. PARP has

been alive and well at Mary G. Clarkson School for many years and 2014’s program runs from January 20th to February 14th. During each of these four weeks, students will read at home with their families, fill out a coupon and return it to school to show their participation: one “coupon” for each week of family reading. Students will receive weekly prize incentives.

Taking time from their recess, the altruistic students created pillows and valentines for donation to the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York in New Hyde Park. “The children truly enjoyed this random act of kindness for other children, helping to spread cheer and happiness for others in need,” said Wilson. “Their community service is remarkable.” Photo by: East Islip School District

Waving Goodbye To Winter

As we wave goodbye to winter, it is easy to forget that there are people out there without a home, food or even shoes. The homeless are at an exponential disadvantage when it comes to adverse weather. We often complain about the trials of winter, but do we really have it so bad? Just having a house to go back to at the end of the day is an asset that we all take for granted. Many people don’t have heat. There is no relief at the end of an afternoon commute. Sure, they have no driveway to shovel, but they also

end up sleeping on the streets in the middle of a snowstorm. A few weeks ago, I took part in a Midnight Run. We went to the city and gave out bags of clothes to those who needed them the most. They were eternally grateful for our contributions. One man even tried to give us a thank you gift. Despite the fact that they have so little, the homeless people that we met proved to be some of the most generous. Even though some people regard them as “bums,” the homeless are fighting an uphill battle each and every

day. If one thinks living on minimum wage is tough, try surviving on change. Although I have no firsthand experience in the realm of the homeless, I can imagine just how hard it may be. People can be intolerant of the homeless. They wave them away when all they ask for is change. There is no daily salvation for this group of people that are trying so dearly just to make it. Before you curse the weather while waiting for your car to heat up, remember the men and women who are sleeping in the snow.

Teacher Of The Month R e c e n t l y , Superintendent Dr. Karen Salmon kicked off her Teacher of the Month initiative, whose aim is to offer to one teacher, one school at a time, a small fraction of the kind of special care and attention the dedicated educators of Bay Shore Schools show to their students each and

every day. Dr. Salmon’s fourth stop on this celebratory tour was Bay Shore High School, where Physical Education Teacher and Head Girls Varsity Volleyball Coach Stasia DeBonis was surprised by a $100 gift card, balloons and flowers, all generously donated by the Stop and

Shop in Bay Shore. In addition, Ms. DeBonis’ picture will be featured in the store for the month of February. Congratulations to Ms. DeBonis on this award and all she does to illuminate, uplift and educate the students of Bay Shore High School.

Alumni Success looking for guidance in achieving their goals, and can provide confidence for those looking for someone to believe in them even when they’ve given up belief in themselves.” Gruber also took time to visit her alma mater and assess the school’s progress and future. “When I walked through the doors at East Islip High School, I could feel a sense of change,” she explained. “I saw students who believed in a cause, I saw bulletin boards representing organizations the students belonged to and I could hear passion in their voices when they spoke. This was an entirely different environment than what I had expected, and it felt amazing. To know that the next generation was being given the opportunity to get involved in what they believe in and express themselves, and that they were being guided by individuals like Mr. Malinowitzer, was a feeling I still cannot express with words. It is my hope that the next group of health care workers – and future professionals entering the working world – stem from schools like East Islip. It is there that they are learning the vital skills needed for success, the tools to help build success, and are being taught how to work as crucial members of a team. I am proud to say that I am a graduate of East Islip High School, and I look forward to being part of their family for many more years to come.” “Tiffany’s wonderful career story lets our students know that they can truly be successful and make their dreams come true,” said Malinowitzer.

Maud S. Sherwood Elementary School students in the Islip School District are jumping their way to good health. Throughout the week of February 10th, students in second through fifth grade participated in the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart program during

their physical education classes. They learned about the importance of heart health, keeping active and staying fit and eating wellbalanced meals. “Jump Rope for Heart is a schoolwide fundraiser, where our students are donating money to help fund research and raising awareness for people

with heart disease,” said physical education teacher Greg Ruccia. During the week, the students participated in various physical activities that helped elevate their heart rates, including jump roping and hula hooping. Photo courtesy of: Islip Public Schools

District Workshop

Local government representatives – State Sen. Phil Boyle, State Assemblyman Andrew R. Garbarino, Town of Islip Councilman Anthony Senft and Suffolk County Legislator Tom Cilmi – joined East Islip School District administrators and a wide array of school community members for a February 7th advocacy workshop at the district board room, working to encourage advocacy

and discuss issues such as the Gap Elimination Adjustment. “The advocacy workshop was a wonderful first step as we gathered our many educational partners together in support of celebrating our school district’s successes as well as unilaterally repealing the GEA,” said East Islip Superintendent of Schools Linda J. Rozzi. “The morning just reiterated for me how

many terrific advocates we have here in East Islip. It was encouraging to see students, elected officials, East Islip Board trustees, educators, parent representatives, c o m m u n i t y representatives, and local business leaders all coming together to celebrate and advocate for East Islip’s financial future.” Photo by: East Islip School District

Excel Wins

Following their first place win at the New York State Future City competition, Islip Middle School EXCEL students spent their February break with teacher Julia Johnson in Washington, D.C., competing in the national level of competition. At the national competition, the team won the specialty award for Most Holistic Approach presented by CH2M HILL Foundation. “With more

Anti-Bias Task Force

ADOPT A SHELTER PET TODAY! LAST HOPE ANIMAL RESCUE 3300 Beltagh Avenue, Wantagh • 631.425.1884

On Thursday, February 6th, Bay Shore High School hosted students from five surrounding school districts as part of the Ambassador Program created by the Town of Islip’s Anti-Bias Task Force. This Task Force, under the leadership of Rabbi Steven Moss and vice-chair Mary Louise Cohen, has organized the Ambassador Program to educate local

high school students about bias and what they can do to educate their peers. This year, the program expanded to four sessions; the first three were held at Islip Town Hall, Central Islip High School and Bay Shore High School, respectively, while the culminating session will be held at Islip Town Hall where the students will be sworn in as Ambassadors

of Anti-Bias in April by the Town Supervisor. The Ambassador Program has been running for a number of years, with seven schools participating in 2013-2014 alone. Defining bias crimes and talking about ways to address them in our own communities in a safe and supportive environment is the goal of the Ambassador Program.

Three seventh-graders at East Islip Middle School – bassist Peter Gerace III, violinist Victoria Keenan and viola player Joshua Koretz – were selected for participation in the competitive Long Island String Festival Association’s All-County Middle School Orchestra, in which they met with their peers across the county to rehearse for

two days, ending with a performance. The superlative East Islip student-musicians, recognized as being among the top string orchestra players in Suffolk County in their age group, were selected by LISFA based on recommendations from their orchestra teacher and their high scores at last spring’s New York State School Music Association

Solo Festival. “Participating in a select county orchestra such as LISFA is a highlight for any string player,” said East Islip Middle School Orchestra director Judith Fischer. “We are extremely proud of their accomplishments.” Photo by: East Islip School District

By: Diane Sciacchitano, North Massapequa

What is that I spy peeking out of my mailbox? A profusion of colors reach out to greet me as I retrieve the mail, The first catalog of the spring season. I glance over my shoulder and see the remnants of the last snowfall Clinging to a lifeless lawn. In my hand I am holding a world of new beginnings just waiting for me And I can’t help but smile. Pages of promises that a new season of beauty is on the horizon, A lush garden to grace my view, An explosion of color that will rest as a centerpiece on the table for all to admire. Mother Nature calls once more Refresh – renew – rebirth, I’m ready.

Someone’s Angel By: Karen Ranieri, North Massapequa

I will be your eyes when you cannot see I will be the one that sets you free I will be at the right place, at the right time I will be there for you I do not need a sign I will shield you from the enemy with evil in their heart I will protect you my innocent one From the fire and the brimstone I will be your guardian chaperone I will not wait for someone else to do the right thing I found my song, so I will triumphantly sing I will be the one that lets you see It still exists The good in humanity E-mail Your Submissions To: Jamie Lynn Ryan jlynn@theneighbornewspapers.com Or Mail To: 565 Broadhollow Road, Suite 3, Farmingdale, NY 11735
