April 1, 2013-The Teen Poetry Slam is inspired by the work of Urban Word NYC. Urban Word NYC uses their writing workshops to build literacy and freedom of expression. After attending a few teen slams, Tammie Williams, Girls (Providing Resources for Improvement Dignity Empowerment) PRIDE Project spoke with Michael Corelli, Executive Director of Urban Word NYC and both agreed to bring the writing workshops to Queens and Long Island. “Some teens have a hard time speaking to adults about what they are going through in life”, says Ms. Williams. “We want teens to be able to put their thoughts down on paper instead of keeping it bottled up inside”. The African Center for Community Empowerment Girls PRIDE ProjectDirector Tammie Williams is proud to bring the inspiring teen poetry slam to Queens and Long Island. –Tammie Williams, Girls PRIDE Project Director.

$219,022 Loss of Aid for Elmont and Sewanhaka Schools

Print

The New York State School Boards Association compiled a spreadsheet outlining the immediate impact of sequestration on New York State School Districts.

Elmont Union Free School District ($81,144) and the Sewanhaka Central High School District ($137,878) will lose approximately $219, 022 while spending in excess of $250,000 in new teacher evaluation mandates passed down from Albany Lawmakers.

The following video was produced by an upstate Public School advocacy group. The group is often seen as hostile to Long Island when it comes to the distribution of "Shares" to public schools. Notwithstanding the Upstate v Downstate debate, the video is a clear representation of how Albany define "State Aid Increase"  You do the math, local School are loosing over half a million dollars to sequestration and new State mandates.

Again

Sandy Hook MemorialAll weekend, I have been fielding calls from community residents, talking to past members of the Elmont and Sewanhaka School Boards, and colleagues from other school district Boards of Education. We are all wrestling with the scope of the tragic events that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School.  Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives; their families and those who survived and must now move forward with these dreadful memories.

Needless to say, there is plenty of commentary to go around and we had plenty to say. From the fact the Elmont Online posted on its front page 4 different stories of gun violence in less than one week to “… here we are again – another quiet neighborhood, another set of innocent children.   We must be more engaged because you just don’t know where next”, said Pam Byer.   Another Elmont child advocate points to ”a culture of violence” and the ease with which we move as a community from violent episode to violent episode” falsely believing that each one is separate for the previous.

In the end we all decided that it’s best to simply provide some guidance on how to cope. To that end we restate the words from The Association of School Psychologists:

  1.   Model calm and control because children take their emotional cues from the significant adults in their lives. Avoid appearing anxious or frightened.

chetcollinsThe Parkhurt Civic Association, Chet's home civic, and the Elmont Community Coalition Council, an organization Chet presided over,  joined the Collins family and close friends in a bitter - sweet farewell at The Valley Stream Baptist Church on Saturday, September 8.  The church service comforted mourners with prayer, tributes and song.

The Going Home service began when Chet's close friend Deacon Carl Thompson led the congregation in an opening prayer and reading of the scripture.

If you know SOMETHING, please
DO something! He or She may never save themselves!

The National Domenstic Violence Hotline warns, "Computer use can be monitored and is impossible to completely clear. If you are afraid your internet usage might be monitored, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1−800−799−7233 or TTY 1−800−787−3224".

Today, we are talking to people about sustainable economic development, because we think it's important to show support for key issues that affect our community - like places in the Elmont for young professionals to live, shop and be entertained; like keeping families closer together and rebuilding the economic and social pillars of the community.
