THE GREAT BOOK GURU
HOW DEMOCRACIES DIE
Dear Great Book Guru, At our usual New Year’s Eve celebration: movie (this year VICE the Dick Cheney story), dinner, dessert, and the ringing of the bell on the Village Green- we all vowed to read more books in 2019. Do you have any suggestions to get us started? Reading Reveler 2019
Dear Reading Reveler 2019, Great idea and I have a list of ten favorite Great Book Guru recommendations from the past year. My #1 choice would be HOW DEMOCRACIES DIE- a book whose ideas have reverberated with me throughout the year.
GLENWOOD HOLIDAY SING-A-LONG
By Shelly Newman, December 21, 2018 -- The Glenwood Landing auditorium was filled with holiday cheer as students, faculty and staff gathered on Friday, December 21, to celebrate the end of 2018 and the beginning of the winter break with the annual GWL Sing A-Long.
Participating in the festivities were Santa (Dr. Perez) and Mrs. Claus (Principal Finder) to the children’s delight! Additionally, many teachers and staff dressed in holiday costumes including Frosty the Snowman, Blue Dreidel, and Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer! In the auditorium, you could see the joy on each of the student’s faces and hear it in their voices as they happily sang, clapped their hands, and watched from their seats this fun holiday event!
Happy holidays and a healthy New Year! See you in 2019
BEAUTIFUL SOUNDS OF THE NORTH SHORE WINTER CONCERTS
By Shelly Newman ---
While temperatures were cooling down outside just in time for the holidays, the warm, melodic sounds of our student musicians could be heard in the North Shore School District as they enthusiastically took the stage to perform in the 2018 Winter Concerts.
A sincere round of applause goes out to all of the musicians who performed beautifully to theatres packed with proud parents and family members, friends, administration, faculty, and staff. Thank you to all of the music teachers who worked so very hard to make these concerts very special and memorable.
Happy holidays and warm wishes for a healthy 2019!
SPREADING HOLIDAY CHEER WITH SNOWFLAKES FOR SENIORS
December 15, 2018 --Assemblyman Ed Ra (R-Franklin Square) hosted a Snowflakes for Seniors program in which students from St. Aidan’s School, Williston Park, wrote heartfelt messages of cheer on paper snowflakes to be distributed to senior citizen at NYU Winthrop Hospital during the holiday season. Nearly 300 snowflakes were made by students grades K-8.
“The holidays can be a difficult time of year for some people, which is why I created this program, to help bring some cheer to those who need it most,” said Ra. “This program is also a great way for the younger and older generations to connect. I’m happy to see so many children eager to help bring some holiday cheer to the senior citizens in our community. This is a program I plan to continue for many years in hopes that we can reach more people each year.”
The snowflakes were delivered to patients receiving long-term care at NYU Winthrop Hospital on December 11.
“NYU Winthrop Hospital is fortunate to work with elected officials like Edward Ra,” said Justin Burke Director, of External Affairs, NYU Winthrop Hospital. “His work with the local schools helps to provide smiles to those that are in the hospital during the holiday season. This program helps assure that our senior patients feel the joy that is given during the receipt of a holiday card. We all know the littlest of things make the biggest of impacts.”
