Cole Levitt is a new teacher of Dramatics and Literature at Ford High School. Only 24, he is already jumping into a steady life with a job, a home, and a recent engagement to his high school sweetheart, Allison. He meets a sophomore student named Margot Tate at his new job who has a love of writing almost as deep as the fractures in her home life. His close friendship with her begins to complicate his life and make those around them suspicious, but they can’t seem to avoid the kinship they feel in each other. Meanwhile, she begins to feel more for him, and through three years of their life they both grow and change together as their lives rearrange. Director/Producer/Writer: Carrie Ferrante. Producer: Joshua Paige. Feature Film. Student Film. LIU Post. World Premiere. (Profanity.)

Looking to Develop Speaking and Leadership Skills?

Ace a job interview? Ignite your career? Toastmasters International Can Help Toastmasters International is a nonprofit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs. The organization currently has more than 260,000 members in approximately 12,500 clubs in 113 countries. Since it’s founding in October 1924, the organization has helped more than 4 million men and women give presentations with poise and confidence. For information about local Toastmasters clubs, please visit toastmasters.org. So, how does it work? Toastmasters clubs offer a “learn-by-doing” workshop in which participants practice speaking and leadership skills in a friendly atmosphere. Members learn communication skills by following a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking. Members can also learn leadership skills by taking on various meeting roles and serving as officers in the club and district levels. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting, instead, members evaluate one another’s oral presentations. Feedback and evaluations is key to the program’s success. You are invited to see what Toastmasters has to offer by visiting Syosset Toastmasters. Join us at the Syosset Public Library, 225 South Oyster Bay Road on Thursday July 26, at 7:30 p.m. For more information visit our website at http://3627.toastmastersclubs.org or call 516-313-0215.

Eight students from Jericho High School, the largest number of students from any school on Long Island this year, are among the 300 semifinalists picked from 1,800 entrants nationally and overseas in the annual Intel Science Talent Search.

Brookville’s Green Vale School students were featured in the September/October 2013 issue of Sport Rocketry, the official journal of the National Association of Rocketry.

The seventh-grade students competed nationally at the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) last May in Virginia and were the youngest rocket scientists competing. They were also the only team from Long Island that qualified to enter the competition and one of only two teams from New York State.
