The foundation for character building and success starts at home. The schools and role models that impact your child’s life assist in reinforcing the aspirations that you have for your child’s development and future. This article is about children who have achieved goal at a young age. They are in Karatatot which is a unique program offered by Charles Water Karate & Fitness, located at 122 Hillside Avenue in Williston Park. Karatatot is a combination of exercise and karate in a format specifically designed for children age 4 and up. In a fun-filled and nurturing setting your children learn concentration, discipline, respect, as well as understanding of self defense at his or her own level. The results are improved strength, coordination, and flexibility and the self-confidence that we all want for our children. These children are learning child safety and stranger training. They are becoming better students at school and better listeners at home. We believe the time between the ages of 4 /2 and 6 are the most important years of a child’s development. Our programs will enhance positive development in a fun and motivating way. Congratulations to all the Karatatots who graduated to the next tip or belt level. From Williston Park: Max Ponce, Leo Ponce, Ricardo Wright. From Mineola: Nicholas Baker, Ethan Sargeant, Matthew Pardo.

“Yes we can can cancer” is the motto of the Adelphi University student athletes, who demonstrate their support for the Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) at Winthrop-University Hospital by collecting recyclable bottles and cans on campus and donating the proceeds to the center. Recently, a group of students visited the center’s state-of-the-science facility located at 120 Mineola Boulevard to present a check for more than $7,100 in support of the CCFK’s mission.
In addition to their dedication to academic excellence, with over two-thirds maintaining a GPA of 3.0 or better, Adelphi’s University Panthers proudly carry on a time-honored tradition of service. During the past several years, these young men and women have increased community and campus involvement in a number of special programs and Winthrop’s CCFK has been a grateful recipient of their efforts. Not only have the students helped fund the center’s programs, they have also increased campus awareness of pediatric cancer.
Recently the students and their families joined together with gym teacher, Diane Schubert, who had them running, rolling and laughing down all the lanes in the gym. It was evident that everyone had a fun time.
