Massapequa Brownie Girl Scout Troop #2070 Celebrates the 100th Birthday Anniversary of Girl Scouting in America!
Girl Scout Troop #2070 spread the word of the Girl Scouts 100th Birthday, March 12, 1912-2012. In February they made a collage to display at the Massapequa Central Avenue Library. Also, they hosted a birthday party for Daisy Troop #2369 in their same school. The Troop visited the Cold Spring Whaling Museum with Junior Troop #2484. On the actual birthday day, March 12, the girls hosted the birthday party. They sang the Brownie Smile Song they had learned for the visiting Daisies and worked various activity tables of games and crafts for the guests and cake. Each family of the brownie Girl Scout Troop #2070 contributed a baby item that went into a baby gift basket that was donated to a baby girl named Nikaila born on the actual 100th birthday anniversary of Girl Scouts. Happy 100th Birthday Girl Scouts!

Anti-bullying Legislation Passes
Still much work to be done
Passing 58 to 3, the Senate approveda bill designed to protect students from bullying, which now awaits the signature of Governor Paterson.
“We succeeded last night in taking another step forward toward protecting our children and setting the stage for more important discussions regarding bullying,” said Senator Kemp Hannon. “However, it’s unfortunate that this bill does not specifically address cyber-bullying, which has been a major topic of concern in my district and across the State. That’s why I remain hopeful that my colleagues will pass my cyber-bullying legislation as soon as possible,” Hannon continued.
The bullying bill that passed applies to events on school grounds and at school functions. It prohibits harassment, the creation of a hostile environment by conduct, and discrimination based on “actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender or sex.”
Senator Hannon’s proposed cyber-bullying legislation specifically defines cyber-bullying and adds the behavior to a list of acts for which disciplinary measures must be taken. Additionally, Senator Hannon's bill establishes a state-wide registry for individuals to report instances of bullying and cyber-bullying.
