Active Parenting Group

Starting on Jan. 16, YES Community Counseling Center will be conducting a six-week Active Parenting program for parents with elementary school age children at their offices, located at 152 Center Lane in Levittown, from 7:00pm – 8:30pm 

If you were faced with the responsibility for designing and building a home, would you consult a builder?  Before piloting a plane, would you want to take flying lessons?  Would you seek medical training before attempting heart surgery?

If the answers seem obvious to you, consider this:  Should your skills as a parent be learned only through “trial and error”?

All the love we have for our children does not automatically make us effective parents.  Parenting, like any other skill, is something we learn, and learning “on the job” can be frustrating.  As parents we become confused when, after constant repetition of the same theme, children still do not respond. “Active Parenting” is perhaps the most effective program ever offered in the “how to” of raising children.

The cost of the program is $60.  If you are interested in attending please contact Angela Piccininni at YES Community Counseling Center, 516-799-3203. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis.   

 

Sunday, January 19

Please contact the church for more information (516) 731-3808.  A freewill offering will be accepted.  

 

News

The smell of pine, wood and scented candles greet customers with a sense of home as they cross the wooden threshold to the Amish Craft Barn in Seaford. There they will find dolls, birdhouses, quilts, ceramic turkeys, hand-painted Christmas trees, oak furniture and other seasonal and holiday tchotchkes.

 

Massapequa natives Frank and Pam Hoerauf started The Amish Craft Barn & Gift Shoppe 20 years ago after an inspiring visit to Pennsylvania.

Holidays increase daily congestion 

While parking around LIRR train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town. 

 

“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”


Sports

The Island Trees Cross Country teams continue their improvement in 2014. This year the girls’ team has a record of 8-2 and with their victories over Clarke and Wheatley High Schools, they clinched the Division Championship for the first time in Island Trees High School history.

 

The girls are led by senior Captain Angela Brocco who has been rewriting the girl’s record boards. Brocco set the school record for the Warwick Valley 5000 meter course on Sept. 20. 

This season the Girls’ Varsity Soccer Team at Division Avenue has the rare ability to fill every position on the field with a member of the senior class. All 11 seniors have made contributions to the success of this year’s squad.
