To all you high school students out there: we did it! The school year is officially half over. Midterms are done, and the third quarter has begun. As we are in the home stretch, it is crucial for students of every grade level to start - or finish - looking at colleges. Freshmen, although still young, should focus on maintaining a solid grade-point-average. Sophomores should be preparing to take the SAT or ACT. Juniors need to be primarily concerned with creating a list of schools that they wish to apply to. Seniors, like myself, are now waiting to hear back from different colleges.

Although underclassmen may feel like they have all the time in the world, it is crucial to get an early start. Trust me, that time goes quickly. In addition to keeping up one’s grades, it is also important to set up interviews. For many borderline students, these interviews give them the opportunity to convey their passions more effectively. A student gets to speak directly with an alumnus of the specific institution. An interview is a valuable asset in making your interest known. For instance, just a few weeks ago, I had an interview with Dr. Vitagliano, the proprietor of Smile With Style

Orthodontics in West Islip. As a graduate of Duke University, Dr. Vitagliano is still heavily involved in the happenings both on campus and in the admissions office. During my interview, I made it known that Duke University was one of my first choice institutions. Hopefully, Dr. Vitagliano saw my interest and conveys it to the admissions board. This process can be influential in affording a student access to a specific institution of higher learning, but grades bear much more weight! Make sure to keep your grades up, take standardized tests, apply to college and schedule an interview!

The Eve Of Excitement? By: Jamie Lynn Ryan All the hype, all the anticipation, all leading to this year’s, ahem, “Big Game”… and for what? Neither New York football team is participating, few locals seem the least bit interested in paying the exorbitant ticket prices to attend and, irony of ironies, barring a lastminute change in the weather forecast, the potential for a nor’easter over the weekend has been downgraded to, um, 46º and partly cloudy. Personally, I have never been to a professional football game. I’d like to,

don’t get me wrong, but the idea of tailgating in the freezing cold – eh, not so appealing. Add to that the fact that my only NFL rooting interest lies in New England (yes, I know, blasphemy), and I have never actively pursued acquiring tickets to a game to this point. Of course, a few weeks back, when the Patriots still stood a chance of making it to the end, the thought briefly crossed my mind. Wouldn’t that be an incredible first football experience? Ah, but it was not to be. Instead, I, like millions of others, will be watching

the game from the comfort of my own home, on the couch, surrounded by snacks. I rarely have much of a rooting interest, but the broadcast is usually good for a few classic commercials and a fairly entertaining Halftime performance. We, as a collective society, will watch, discuss the highlights for a few days and then promptly forget who won, who even played, until next year when the football season revs up once again. And so it goes. On to more important things – like how many days ‘til pitchers and catchers report?

ENCOURAGED TO WRITE - Connetquot Central School District’s (CCSD) Edward J. Bosti Elementary School fifth grade C-Quest students were recently visited by popular local author and CCSD Connetquot High School alumni Patrice Domozych. The author of the children’s book Hope Is Here To Stay answered questions from the students and discussed with them the importance of writing. The event was organized by faculty members to introduce C-Quest students to an advanced curriculum in writing. Along with giving them tips for becoming better writers, Domozych encouraged the C-Quest students to write more about their own lives in order to develop their unique “voices” and styles.

Community Enthusiasm

274153N0205

On Friday, January 24th, Supervisor Ed Romaine and Councilman Dan Panico were joined by Keith Caputo, Cassy Caputo and Kathleen Johnson to pull the winning ticket in the Moriches Community Center Fundraiser Raffle. Keith Caputo decided he wanted to set the benchmark for the community in raising money to build a Community Center in Center Moriches. Keith was able to raise over $2,000 and stated that he wanted to continue to raise more money. Supported by his mother, Cassy Caputo, and fellow community member Kathleen Johnson, who

share the same vision of a Moriches Community Center, they viewed this raffle as the kick-off for the fundraising efforts ahead of them. “Keith is a determined young man and we could all learn a lesson from his example of community service,” said Supervisor Romaine. “I look forward to joining him some day in the future when we celebrate the ribbon cutting of the new Moriches Community Center.” “I was extremely impressed with Keith Caputo’s efforts and enthusiasm. We are all encouraged to work harder and find ways to make this dream a reality,” said

Councilman Dan Panico, who recently identified the site for the new Community Center. “I have and will continue to support these efforts for a Moriches Community Center and applaud the tireless work those involved have poured into this worthy project.” There will be a resolution to set a public hearing for the lease of the Town-owned parcel that will be the future site of the Moriches Community Center. If you would like to donate time, effort and/or money to this great cause, please call Councilman Panico’s office at 631.451.6502 for more information.

HONORING THE CHAMPS - The Sachem Sports Clubs Annual Awards Banquet was recently held this past weekend at Villa Lombardi’s in Holbrook. The Sachem Sports Club is comprised of over 600 young athletes in the community. With nearly 1,000 people in attendance at the Awards Dinner, Legislator Tom Muratore presented Certificates of Recognition to the 2013 Suffolk County Police Athletic League Football Champions in the 10 year-old and 13-year old Divisions.

SPORTS CLUB HONOREES - Suffolk County Legislator Bill Lindsay III, a Sachem Alumni, honored over 50 Youth Football Players in the 12 year old division, 28 Cheerleaders in the 13-14 year-old division and several Coaches of the Sachem Sports Club recently, at Villa Lombardi’s in Holbrook. Lindsay III praised the parents and coaches for putting together a yearly program that helps to build the foundation of success for the future of these young athletes. The Sachem Sports Club, with over 35 years of experience, is one of the largest football, cheerleading, and lacrosse programs on Long Island.

Dancing Classroom Interim Assistant Superintendent Mrs. Sandra Rubin recently welcomed students, family and friends to the second annual Dancing Classrooms performance at Connetquot’s Idle Hour Elementary School. On Friday, December 13th, Idle Hour’s 4th grade students took pride in demonstrating the

ballroom dancing skills they had been practicing in Physical Education classes for the past month. Sponsored by the Idle Hour PTA, students in Mr. Brennan and Ms. Griffith’s classes, these confident Idle Hour students shared their own Dancing With The Stars moment! Idle Hour Principal Mrs. Denise Toscano expressed her

gratitude to CoDanceCo’s Teaching artist Jessica Colosa, Cheryl Wheeler and IH P.E. teachers Mrs. Lowry and Mr. Rondinella for producing such a wonderfully exciting dancing demonstration. According to Idle Hour YFS Director Mrs. Lara McNally “Students spent two physical education classes per week learning

the Meringue, Fox Trot, Rumba, Swing, Tango and Viennese Waltz. Our 4th graders were taught to dance gracefully around the room and to have fun!” Dancing Classrooms is a non-profit organization founded in 1994. It’s mission is to build social awareness, confidence and self-esteem in children through the practice of

social dance. According to their website “The dance is a tool for getting the children to break down social barriers, learn about honor and respect, treat others carefully and improve & accept others.” One parent said that the the children “looked so grown up,” while another graded their dancing skills as “awesome, with a score

of 10!” The last part of this afternoon program called for the students to go into the audience and bring a parent out on the floor to share a dance. It was obvious by the end of the show that the program’s goal of teaching pride, confidence and respect had been achieved by these talented Idle Hour students!

Edward J. Bosti Elementary School 5th graders recently completed the school’s annual Cirque du Jour Project to the delight of family and friends. Afterwards these students took the time to write letters of thanks to those thoughtful professionals that made the circus experience so enjoyable. As part of the Cirque du Jour Project (CDJ), Bosti students worked with their physical education teachers, Mrs. West and

Mr. Oldis, and members of the CDJ to learn a variety of circus acts. According to veteran 5th grade teacher Mrs. Joanna McManaman, “The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Now they are reflecting on this magic memory as they articulate thanks to facilitators, PE teachers, Dr. Cholden and the members of the Bosti PTA.” Youngsters displayed their own personalities as they learned to work as clowns, escapte artists, juggler, stilt walkers and

masters of the Diablo Stick! The circus program is designed to motivate students to participate more fully in physical education, and cultural arts activities. The students performed during the day for their classmates, and later in the evening for family and friends. Congratulations to Bosti’s talented 5th graders for putting on their own version of Greatest Show On Earth in Bohemia!

provide parents a more meaningful assessment of their children’s progress. Effort and comprehension are areas of focus. One major change with the introduction of Common Core is the greater emphasis on critical thinking skills. Those changes will very likely be reflected in the report card, which will not only assess a student’s detailed content knowledge, but also his or her demonstrated understanding of higherlevel concepts and more. Pay attention to these marks, as they are a significant measure of students’ performance moving forward with the new standards. Progress toward mastery of grade-level standards is the new norm. While every school district may be different, parents across the nation can expect report cards—particularly in the elementary grades— to measure students’ growth over the course of the school year, not just the term for which they are evaluated. As such, it is important that you

understand the different progress indicators and what any numeric codes used actually mean regarding your child’s achievement of grade-bygrade benchmarks. It’s all about college and career readiness. The Common Core State Standards were created to ensure all students graduating from high school are capable of succeeding in college-level classes and in their careers. That overarching purpose is reflected in the details of your child’s report card by showing what a student is expected to know and your child’s progress toward those targets. Keep that in mind as you read through your child’s report card. As always, contact your child’s teacher with specific questions. “The great thing about Common Core and the way teachers will now be assessing students is that there is a big-picture goal in mind,” says Huntington. “This creates a perfect opportunity to notice your child’s strengths and progress, while keeping an eye on areas to work on.”

On January 19th, New York City FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), along with School-Business Partnerships of Long Island, Inc.

When your child brings home his or her mid-year report card, it is important to read it carefully and take note of a number of key areas. And with the Common Core State Standards going into effect this school year, Eileen Huntington of Huntington Learning Center reminds parents that report cards may look different this year than in years past. “The report card format may change from last year, as states roll out report cards that are aligned to the Common Core State Standards,” says Huntington. As you evaluate your child’s report card this month, keep in mind the following: Understanding the report card format is critical. If your child’s teacher did not provide an explanation of the report card format that is being used, be sure to request one so you are clear on how your child is being evaluated. The newly enhanced report card structures that many schools are now using are not only aligned with state standards (Common Core), they also are supposed to

Lilacs Shout By: Milicent G. Tycko, Stony Brook

Unbelievable That in the midst of dry brown pine needles And ice-etched frost pools of fallen leaves There dares to stand now A new crocus blown To full purple Which leads the doubter further Towards the worn out tangle of Wildrose branches Hanging sullen after Winter’s wild beating

Unbelievable That now When finger cracks through crusty films Of frost to find Stored cold water And all the yard is mud The wooden tub of sticks Proclaims I am and will be more For see the pulpy buds I raised While you bemoaned the winter’s wild Soon these juicy tips will burst And lilacs, lilacs, lilacs shout And that’s what Nature’s all about.

In which a wooden tub was placed Containing last year’s lilac plant A brittle barren stand of sticks Near to spruce and hidden by pine Supported by a mound of snow For shelter’s sake
