Letter: I Hope You’ll Dance

I am a  East Williston resident and ninth grader at Kellenberg Memorial High School. I am in the process of working on my Girl Scout Gold Award Project. 

 

For my project, I am creating a dance program at St. Aidan’s for children with special needs. For the first program, I am opening up classes to girls age 7-12 with special needs.  

 

At a private dancing school, I have been assisting in a special needs dance class for a few months to help prepare. Also, the instructors at the St. Aidan’s Dance Academy have volunteered to assist me with my program. If you know of or have a child with special needs, please sign up for this wonderful program.

 

The program will be held in the Convent Music Room and is scheduled for the week of July 21-25, Monday and Tuesday 3:45 to 4:45 p.m., Wednesday 3:15 to 4:15 p.m., Thursday and Friday 10 to 11 a.m.

 

A parent or guardian must stay during the class. Parents and guests may join us for the open class on Friday at 10 a.m. to see what your child has learned.

News

Winthrop University Hospital employee Jeffrey Brenner, a hyperbaric technician with the Life Support Technologies group in Mineola, recently received the American Heart Association’s prestigious Louis J. Acampora Heart Saver Award at a dinner at the Crest Hollow Country Club. The award is named for a Long Island teenager who succumbed to a sporting injury that is understood to have been preventable if a cardiac medical device had been immediately on-scene and applied. 

 

“I hope that I have made a real difference in my town and the world around me to help prevent death and improve the quality of people’s lives” said Brenner.

The Wheatley School recently hosted an Item Writing Workshop for more than 100 language teachers representing districts across New York State.  The workshop was sponsored by the Foreign Language Association of Chairpersons and Supervisors (FLACS), the professional organization that has assumed responsibility for the creation and administration of the FLACS

Checkpoint A and B Exams (formerly the NYS Second Language Proficiency and Regents Exams).


Sports

After consecutive seasons of finishing runner-up in the men’s golf Player of the Year for the Skyline Conference, Christian Bleck of St. Joseph’s took home first place in a rather unlikely turn of events. 

 

After a herniated disc caused the Chaminade High School alum to miss every event after the first week of the season until the conference tournament, Bleck returned—without even having the luxury of practicing a full 18 holes—and competed with the best players the conference has to offer. 

Cross-Country Crowned Champs

The Mineola Mustang boys cross-country team won the division 4A championship recently at Bethpage State Park.  This is the first championship for the program since 1974, ending a 40-year championship drought. 

 

Mineola defeated Seaford, who also entered the undefeated in division competition, 38-20.  Overcoming rain and high winds throughout the race, many Mustangs ran personal records for the 5K in route to the victory.
