When I was teaching, I always had a class, of some type, in speech communication. How we communicate effectively has always been of great importance to me. Because I see that this essential aspect of our lives is severely compromised as of late, I decided that it is important that EMPL host a series of workshops on effective communication. I contacted CERRU, which has a stellar reputation as being on the forefront of communication workshops.  They have agreed to come to EMPL to hold a series of 4 workshops. Please participate in this very important series. Space is limited. Registration begins Thursday, September 13, in the Public Relations office, 794-2570, ext. 560, or online at eastmeadow.info.

“Operation SAFE Child” ID Program
Tuesday, October 23 3-6 p.m.
This fall, Senator Kemp Hannon, in conjunction with Nassau County DA Madeline Singas, is proud to host an “Operation SAFE Child” ID program at the East Meadow Public Library.  Families who participate will receive a free, wallet-sized ID card containing a child’s name, date of birth, age, gender, height, weight, hair and eye color, and fingerprints. 
 
You may elect to have your child’s data linked to the AMBER Alert system. When a child is reported missing, time can be the greatest adversary.  Possessing up-to-date photos and important information about one’s child are important proactive measures a parent can take to assist law enforcement should a child disappear.

This is an important program for parents! Bullying is pervasive! The bully’s ammunition is 
not a stick or a stone. It is the word—and in its unique way, it becomes as bloody as the 
actual physical weapon itself.  And, today, because of electronic media, it is non-stop. Mark 
Walters, founder of both Sticks and Stones Foundation and Bullying Stops Today, has spent 
over three decades as an educator in New York City and New Jersey schools. In his forthcoming book, In the Shadow of the Apple, he tells us the story of his inspiring career and 
how he helped transform the lives of bullies and those who were bullied.

Waking Lions by Ayelet Gundar-Goshen
Monday, November 5 at 12:30 p.m. 
Moderator:  Anna Katsavos
Neurosurgeon Eitan Green has the perfect life--married to a beautiful police officer and father of two young boys. Then, speeding along a deserted moonlit road in Israel, after an exhausting hospital shift, he hits someone. Seeing that the man, an African migrant, is beyond help, he flees the scene. When the victim's widow knocks at Eitan's door the next day, holding his wallet and divulging that she knows what happened, Eitan discovers that her price for silence is not money. It is something else entirely, something that will shatter Eitan's safe existence and take him into a world of secrets and lies he could never have anticipated.  After the discussion,  Ayelet Gundar-Goshen will join us by Skype!
