The Food Prep students from the Bixhorn Technical Center in Bellport recently visited Watermill Caterers in Smithtown for a tour and a demonstration on how to make fresh mozzarella cheese. Bixhorn Technical Center is an Eastern Suffolk BOCES school that provides both Career and Technical Education programs, as well as Special Career Education classes for students with special needs. The Food Prep students participate in the Special Career Education Program, which provides them with entry level skills that may enable

them to gain employment in certain fields. Watermill Executive Chef Chris Singlemann provided the tour and showed students the dining rooms, kitchens, walk-in refrigerators and freezers, storage rooms, equipment, and tools. He explained the importance of organization, teamwork, and adaptability, especially in catering when 200500 dinners are served at once. He also showed students how to make fresh mozzarella and how different shapes can be used in a variety of ways throughout the menu. After the demonstration,

the students had the opportunity to taste the fresh cheese. It’s interesting to note that Singlemann graduated from the Culinary Arts Program at another ESBOCES career and technical facility, Milliken Technical Center in Oakdale, before attending Johnson & Wales University. Said Jill Hamill, ESBOCES teaching assistant, “Getting out into the field, touring facilities, and talking to working chefs are important experiences that put the skills our students learn in the classroom into perspective.”

Dancing for Wellness The goal of Dancing for Wellness is to benefit senior communities, as well as to promote programs which assist senior citizens. Crimes against the elderly continue to skyrocket each year as criminals find more ways to carry out both new and old scams, including Medicare and phone hoaxes. In fact, seniors lose billions of dollars a year to scams. Senior citizens should be especially aware of fraud schemes targeting their lifestyle and savings and take care to follow a series of tips to protect themselves and their family members. This year’s Dancing for Wellness event was held on March 28th at the Fred Astaire Photo by: Rob Rich

Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization formed with the goal of bringing financial education to the community through workshops, seminars and resource materials. Guided by a board of experts from the Long Island business community, the mission of Equity First Foundation is to educate members of the community so they can make financial decisions with knowledge and confidence. Guests who attended this event enjoyed an evening of ballroom dancing, drinks, and hors d’oeuvres (food and drinks courtesy of Elegant Affairs and PortoFino Restaurant). Other sponsors included celebrity permanent make-up artist Sharon Grasso of Permanent Touch Makeup Cosmetics.

Don’t Forget the Tomatoes

Members of the Helping Hands Club at Sayville Academic Center met recently to assemble wash kits, which they will donate to local shelters. The kits consist of gallonsize plastic bags filled with a variety of toiletries and personal care items, many of which were donated by

parents. Club members were responsible for putting an assortment of supplies in each bag. Said Lauren Weber, teaching assistant who runs the club, “Helping Hands provides community service-based activities for students where they learn how to

make a positive impact while having fun with friends.” Sayville Academic Center is an Eastern Suffolk BOCES school that provides services for children with special education needs.

I have recently taken to food shopping more frequently, with the intention of picking up “just a few things” during each visit to the grocery store, eliminating the need for a cart and - theoretically - such a large expense in one shot. The cost, well, it depends on the particular outing and what items are on the menu. The cart… let’s just say I have yet to master the art of consolidating my purchases to one of those convenient little hand baskets they provide by the front entrance. Case in point: on my last trip to one of my favorite food stores, I meandered through the aisles selecting a bit of this and that. At about the halfway point, as I was nearing the deli counter, I noticed that my basket was nearly overflowing. The gentleman taking my cold cut order seemed to note the same fact simultaneously,

remarking, Are you gonna carry all that?? I’m going to try, I replied with a smile, while bracing my basket on the edge of the shelving in front of me. My order complete, I continued on my way into the next section of the store, surveying the shelves to determine how many more items I could possibly carry. As I contemplated, I felt a tap on the shoulder. I turned to find a man standing with my cold cuts, those just purchased several steps back, in hand, apparently having fetched them from the floor behind me. Whoops. On to the produce section, where I attempted to juggle tomatoes while picking out cucumbers. And there they went, rolling down the aisle, nearly taking out a young mother and her child. Mom, it’s a little red ball!

the girl squealed, taking off after the tomato. Oh my, I’m so sorry! I hurriedly gathered up the rogue produce and headed to checkout, resigned to the fact that I simply could not carry one more thing. There, I was met with a similarly bewildered look from the cashier, who watched as I piled my merchandise onto the conveyer belt, one item at a time. Do you have bags? she asked. Why yes, yes I do, three in fact. She chuckled, Three bags and no cart? Yes, I replied sheepishly. Yes, I recognize the irony in that. After my total was calculated {not quite as inexpensive as planned}, the cashier said Here’s a tip: even if you think you’re only running in for a gallon of milk, take a cart. Always. Take a cart. One day, I’ll learn.

Friends of Karen is a nonprofit organization that supports critically-ill children and their families. This year, they are celebrating their 40th anniversary; four decades of bringing help, hope and support to over 15,000 children and their families in the tri-state area. In 1978, Friends of Karen began with one family, one child, Karen MacInnes; and one inspired woman, Sheila Petersen, who wanted to sustain her close friends through the devastating illness of their daughter. Today, Friends of Karen serves hundreds of families by providing emotional, financial and advocacy support to children with life-threatening illnesses, and to their families in order to help keep them stable, functioning and able to cope, at no cost. To apply for help, a parent or guardian of the ill child must call the organization and speak to a member of their Family Support Team. Friends of Karen often hosts or participates in many events within their community. On Saturday, May 5th and Sunday, May 6th, they are hosting a team in the Long Island Marathon at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow. Saturday will be a 5K and Sunday will be a 10K. They are looking for people to join their Friends of Karen team and to

Dancing the Night Away Elegance and grace filled the gymnasium at Sachem High School East recently as Lynwood Elementary School fifth-grade students in the Sachem Central School District took part in the Dancing with the Lynwood Stars culminating performance as part of the Dancing Classrooms program. In its ninth year at Lynwood, the 10-week Dancing Classrooms program teaches students

eight ballroom dances, a line dance and a folk dance. As students worked through numerous dance classes, teamwork, respect, self-confidence and nonverbal communication were continuously emphasized by teaching artist Jessica Heins. As a culmination to their study, the students performed the merengue, foxtrot, rumba, waltz, tango, swing and polka for a packed crowd of

family and friends. Each dance was prefaced with a student-led demonstration showcasing the cadences for each step the students learned. In between the performances, students read essays reflecting on their dance experiences. To conclude the funfilled night, members of the audience were asked to join the students in a large group dance demonstration.

Safety Training Workshop As an extension of the district’s proactive and expansive efforts, Connetquot Central School District hosted a training day on April 5th to focus on equipping faculty and staff members with the most up-to-date safety measures and lifesaving techniques. The program included several guest speakers who spoke about national trends, emerging practices and the resources available, both within the district and surrounding community. Presenters included representatives from the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office and Stony Brook University Hospital. Deputy Sheriff Investigator William Weick discussed informative safety measures

specific to an emergency situation within a school building, including the latest evacuation tactics and preventative measures. Additionally, Stony Brook University Hospital Outreach Coordinator Colby Rowe provided attendees with hands-on lifesaving training as part of the department of Homeland Security “Stop the Bleed” program. According to its website, this national initiative is one that calls for bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. The program focuses on the proper methods to apply tourniquets and tending to wounds in the case of any emergency.

“As school security measures are changing at a rapid rate, it is my utmost priority to ensure our students’ and staff members’ safety,” said Connetquot Central School District Superintendent Dr. Lynda G. Adams. “Our district has remained on the forefront of safety and security training, practices and procedures – including having provided FEMA incident command training. While I take pride in our past and current efforts, we recognize that it is imperative that we continue to embrace emerging and best practices on an ongoing basis.”

Science Erupts

Waverly Elementary School fifth-graders in the Sachem Central School District had a blast during a recent STEAM activity exploring the geographic and scientific elements of volcanoes. As part of the students’ study, each group selected a volcano from around the world to research. After students collected information on their chosen volcano they created colorful

informational posters displaying interesting facts and characteristics about the unique landforms. As part of the activity students utilized Play-Doh to sculpt miniature replicas of their volcanoes. To mirror a volcanic eruption, students were provided with a collection of ingredients that they used to conduct experiments to develop a combination that would produce the best eruption. Students

determined a calculated mixture of baking soda and vinegar created the best eruption and added red food coloring to mimic the color of flowing lava. Throughout the activity, each student group referred back to the key principals of the design and engineering process to assess areas that needed improvement and incorporated new design ideas to complete their goals.

Eighth-grade students at Seneca Middle School in the Sachem Central School District recently attended a captivating assembly program presented by Holocaust survivor Irving Roth. As a young boy, Mr. Roth was separated from his family and taken to Auschwitz, where he was forced by Nazi soldiers to work long hours with very limited food. Mr. Roth survived his time at Auschwitz but was transported to

Buchenwald, another concentration camp that was liberated in 1945. Mr. Roth spoke with students about the numerous social injustices he endured when German soldiers took over Czechoslovakia and how his family was forced into hiding in Hungary. His stories depicted the horrible living conditions he faced during his time at Auschwitz and how his ordinary way of living was taken from him by Nazi soldiers.

Following the assembly, Mr. Roth joined a small group of students for refreshments and answered studentprepared questions about his experiences. Students asked about his connection with other survivors, family and current world issues. The visit from Mr. Roth serves as an excellent introduction to upcoming lessons on social injustice as part of the humanities unit.

Eastern Suffolk BOCES (ESBOCES) knows how to pull together as an agency. One month of nonstop fundraising efforts across the organization resulted in raising a sum of approximately $11,000 earmarked for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the non-profit that benefits childhood cancer research and awareness. The Barbering and Cosmetology Programs

at the three Academy technical centers, as well as their counterparts in the Special Career Education Program at Islip Career Center and the Special Education Program at Islip Academic Center, each held successful fundraising events. Select salon services (green hair extensions, glitter tattoos, hand paraffin treatments, and manicures) were available, as well as the

signature St. Baldrick’s head shave, in addition to retails items, which were available for purchase. Barbering Teacher Luke Mahoney organized these events across the agency and has been doing so for years. He also recognized eight ESBOCES colleagues for their years of fundraising dedication in a symbolic St. Baldrick’s ceremony that bestowed honorary titles, such as Knight of the Bald Table. The campaign culminated at the final event when ESBOCES COO Dr. Julie Davis Lutz and District Superintendent David Wicks both had “ESB” (for Eastern Suffolk BOCES) engraved at the base of their scalps, shaved their heads, and received a few temporary green shamrock tattoos for this great cause. Said Mahoney, “I am a cancer survivor and a teacher. Doing what I can to put an end to this disease while instilling that vital sense of community within my students, by participating in and promoting events such as these, is essential as an instructor.”

Take a Duck to Class In celebration of fifthgrade student Jacob Rubbo being named a TD Bank “Take a Duck to Class” essay contest, Tamarac Elementary School in the Sachem Central School District was visited by the Long Island Ducks for a special program. As part of the contest, students across Long Island were challenged to write an essay about a hero in their community. Jacob chose to write about a close family friend and Spectrum of Dreams Foundation President Tim Szlosek. After his son Shane was diagnosed with autism, Mr. Szlosek started

the nonprofit organization to help children with special needs acquire the financial resources necessary to enhance their quality of life. Jacob’s essay earned the attention of the contest judges, as he chose to recognize an unconventional type of hometown hero. “Tim made the Spectrum of Dreams Foundation because he wants to help kids like Shane get the resources they need,” Jacob wrote in his essay. “He did something very nice and helpful for kids with autism. I am so happy to know such an amazing person.”

To begin the assembly, all Tamarac students filled the gymnasium to celebrate Jacob’s accomplishment. Following praise from Principal Michael Saidens, Jacob read his essay aloud to the audience of his peers before being presented with a Visa gift card by TD Bank Vice President of U.S. Field Marketing Strategy Eric Fishon and TD Bank Lake Ronkonkoma branch manager Ed Pesapane. Concluding the visit, Jacob and his classmates enjoyed a game of Wiffle ball with Ducks mascot QuackerJack and the Ducks Street Team.

Students Promote Their Programs

The Mock Trade Show held at Eastern Suffolk BOCES Islip Career Center was beneficial to the students enrolled in Special Career Education programs because it related to the Advertising Unit they are working on in each of their classrooms. Students from Cosmetology, Canine Careers, Introduction to Baking, Retail Store Services, Food Preparation Services, Welding, Auto Body, Repair and Refinishing, Modern Auto Tech, and Horticulture set up booths in the gymnasium and readied themselves to spread the word about their products or services. Promotion methods used TAKE A DUCK TO CLASS - “Take a Duck to Class” essay contest winner Jacob by the students included Rubbo with Tamarac Elementary School Principal, Michael Saidens, and QuackerJack. poster board displays, Photo courtesy of: Sachem Central School District brochures and flyers, free

snacks and baked goods, and contests to win prizes. To prepare for the show, students practiced customer skills and public speaking in the classroom. When asked, students could explain what they are learning to do in their program and how service is beneficial to a consumer. For example, in Retail Store Services, students explained how they learned foundational skills such as handling money, cashiering, customer service, salesmanship skills, and how they used technology - Microsoft Word - to create the flyers to promote the store. Lexus, an Islip UFSD student, shared the benefits of enrolling in the Cosmetology Program. She learned how to do haircuts, manicures, pedicures,

waxing, braiding, shapeups, and edge-ups, and has aspirations of working in a salon and opening up her own store. She was able to market and promote the program using her knowledge of the services and the opportunities she will now be able to avail for herself in the beauty industry. Students in the Welding and Auto programs displayed the equipment and tools they are learning to use. They are earning marketable certificates and getting experience at industry sites. Because of their strength of knowledge, students were well prepared to focus on marketing and promoting their programs and expound on how they will be successful because of the hands-on learning.

BENTLY & ERIC young look-a-like cats the Academy is beneficial. “Good school habits, good attendance, and good behavior translate into good soft skills and career skills,” said Sela. With good school habits in hand, students have the opportunity to go to the Academy and learn by doing. Nielsen said, “I built a birdhouse for you today, but in my class we build a real full-size house each year and we collaborate with other programs like HVAC, electrical, and plumbing because we think it’s important to work together on projects.” Donohue explained the hands-on learning in her class. “You will learn how to properly handle and restrain animals, do physical exams, groom, bathe, feed, and clean cages. You will also learn the body system of animals, do customer service and community service, and

go on field trips to places like the Bronx Zoo and the Suffolk Yaphank Farm.” Several of Donohue’s students get on-the-job experience at internships in places like the Riverhead Aquarium. Students can apply to the Academy during the spring of their sophomore year in high school. In addition to Animal Science and Carpentry, there are many career programs at the Academy such as Cosmetology, Clinical Medical Assisting, Engineering, Law Enforcement, Marine/ Motorsports Technology, Audio Production, Aviation, Automotive Technology, and more. Sela said, “It’s never too young to start thinking about career planning − that’s why we have Career Day. ESBOCES and the Academy give students the opportunity to explore options.”

While building a birdhouse, Eastern Long Island Academy of Applied Technology Carpentry Teacher Fran Nielsen educated students at Bellport Middle School about his path to becoming a Career and Technical Education (CTE) teacher. Animal Science Teacher Laura Donohue had the students’ undivided attention when she told them about the different animals they would be handling in her class such as snakes, ferrets, dogs, chinchillas, hamsters, rabbits, and turtles if they enrolled in the Academy at Bixhorn Technical Center. Students in the Animal Science Program also visit local farms that have horses, llamas, and goats.

Brisk walking around the golf course and playing tennis has many proven health benefits. Adults may gain as much as two hours of life expectancy for each hour of regular, vigorous exercise–like very brisk walking–even if they don’t begin exercising until middle age. Walking is the

However, many Americans are still not getting the proper amount of exercise that will effectively combat risk factors for serious health issues. According to the American Heart Association, nearly 70 percent of American adults get no regular physical activity. Yet contrary to common perceptions, physical activity is just as important in preventing heart disease as other modifiable risk factors including smoking,

cholesterol and blood pressure. A person is 1.5 to 2.4 times more likely to have coronary heart disease if he or she is inactive. Adult (and childhood) obesity/overweight level continues to increase: 65% of all Adults are obese or overweight. There will be morning and afternoon shotgun starts to accommodate all participants for the golf event at the Meadow Brook Club and an afternoon shotgun start for Golf and Tennis will also take place at Piping Rock. There will also be themed holes and raffles along the 18-hole course. Cocktail dinner
