Free Homework Support

Manhasset Special Education PTA (SEPTA) is proud to announce a free homework support program offered in all three Manhasset Public Schools this spring.  The Adaptive Homework Club is designed for special education and regular education students that struggle to complete homework independently.

The program begins in April and runs until the first week of June. Each session is 90 minutes long and is being held on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the elementary schools and secondary school. Group size is limited to keep a high teacher to student ratio. Manhasset private tutoring firm Tutor Doctor is partnering with Manhasset SEPTA to provide all the staff and oversee the program.

“As a long-time Manhasset resident with children in our public schools, I am delighted to work with SEPTA to offer a special support homework program to our districts’ students,” Tutor Doctor President Michael Warshawsky states. “Tutor Doctor offers private and group tutoring for all student levels, so this is a great fit that will benefit so many students in our schools.”

The Adaptive Homework Club is offered free to all Manhasset SEPTA members.  Memberships are still being accepted for the 2012-13 school year so families can participate in the homework program. Membership is $25 per family and is available to any family in the LI area. Membership forms can be found on the SEPTA website, www.ManhassetSEPTA.org or by emailing SEPTA at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . The program is still accepting students with all sign ups and inquiries being taken on by email as well.

Negotiations are currently underway between the Village of Farmingdale and members of the local CSEA labor union. After a closed door executive session meeting, on Jan. 6, village trustees met with members of the labor counsel to iron out terms of a new contract proposal, which they said will hopefully meet the fancy of union leaders. 

 

“We have sent our proposals out there,” said Farmingdale Mayor Ralph Ekstrand, “we are just waiting for the CSEA membership to approve it.”

A new Child Care Centerfor children ages eight weeks through Pre-K—opened at Farmingdale State College this week, which will be open to the community and the college campus. 

 

“The College owes a great deal of thanks to everyone involved in this project,” said Farmingdale State College President Hubert Keen. “This center provides a safe and nurturing environment for the children of our students, faculty and staff.

Especially for our students, the availability of quality child care can determine whether or not they are able to complete their education.”


Sports

On Saturday, November 9, the MHS Girls Swim Team competed in the Nassau County Team Championships. After a strong preliminary performance on Friday, the girls had their sights set on swimming even faster on Saturday at the finals. On Friday, Manhasset qualified 14 individual swims in the top 10 and all three relays. The team also had an additional 7 swims in the consolation finals (places 11-20). On Saturday, the top 20 individuals and relays compete in each event, all finishers scoring points towards their team total.

In the championship’s opening event, the 200 yd. medley relay team from Manhasset set the tone for what turned out to be a historic day in Manhasset Girls Swimming. The relay team of Grace Kenlon, Allegra Sodi, Megan Smith and Meredith Johnson finished third and set a new school record time of 1:51.96, also qualifying for the New York State Championships.

The Indians' regular season came to a close recently, but not before the boys locked up several more post-season honors to complete a highly successful campaign that brought an undefeated season as well as Division and Conference Championships. Manhasset headed into the post-season with high aspirations and battled it out with rival Wantagh High School for two weekends in a row—at both the Class Country Championships and the State Qualification race—coming up just short on both occasions, but achieving many milestones along the way.
