Oops! He’s done it again. In about as innocent a fashion as a young woman’s romantic actions seemed in this pop song, climbing the music charts at about the same time Donald Trump was first being covered by New York Times reporter, Serge Kovaleski, Trump mocked the journalist’s disability. You see, Trump’s words and actions are almost always not innocent. They’re calculated, purposeful and pure propaganda. In this case, his “impersonation” at a rally in South Carolina was disgusting, ignorant and unpresidential.

Dear Henry Viscardi School Family,
The start of the 2015-2016 year has been an exciting time for our school. Most parents have met with their children’s teachers during parent conferences at the beginning of the month. Our school has completed our first quarter, and we are well into our second. Another year of elections are complete, and we welcome a new legislative session with much more lobbying work ahead of us. Most especially, our new program model has launched successfully, and we have had the privilege to welcome talented and dedicated new staff to work in our classrooms, which are supporting the needs of all our students.
The Viscardi Center’s founder, Dr. Henry Viscardi, Jr., was posthumously inducted into the Long Island Business Hall of Fame this evening at an event held at the Crest Hollow Country Club. The first class of inductees included 20 of the most distinguished leaders in the business community. The Hall of Fame, established by Long Island Business News, is a high honor for those who demonstrate a commitment to excellence: past, present and future. A plaque bearing the names of those inducted will be displayed at Hofstra University’s Frank G. Zarb School of Business.
Phillip Mayer, a student at Henry Viscardi School at The Viscardi Center, was chosen as one of the winners of the “Embracing Our Differences” competition, an annual juried art exhibit sponsored by the Center on the Holocaust, Diversity, and Human Understanding. The purpose of the exhibit is to search for ideas and methods to spread respect for human rights. Phillip’s Photoshop project was completed in his Media Technology class.
