Little Flower Children’s Services of New York

Little Flower Catholic School eighth-graders have been learning more about different career options for the future, thanks to an event held by South Alabama Workforce Development Council called Worlds of Opportunity Career Expo. At this expo, students got an in-person view of all that awaits them when they graduate high school; students who participated included Shroy McAleer and Jonathan Showers as co-presidents; Jay Machen as first vice president; Long Nguyen as second vice president; Alexandria Pierre (secretary); Brittany King Saige Falgout and Lauryn Bettis as reporters.

Little Flower Children’s Services of New York in Wading River is celebrating a nine-year dream come true this weekend with the groundbreaking of its new wing that will add six classrooms. Additionally, all interior areas will be renovated including more personalized teaching and learning through uniform classroom sizes that provide more one-on-one teaching and learning. Superintendent Cindy Stachowski stated the construction begins next month.

Established in 1930, Little Flower operates four locations – Wading River, Brooklyn, Jamaica and Hauppauge – serving children, families and developmentally disabled adults alike. As a non-sectarian non-profit charity organization it offers foster boarding home care, residential treatment care and adoption when appropriate; additionally it operates the only residential special-act public school district on Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk Counties). Recently Bethpage-based King Kullen Grocery Company donated $100,000 towards Little Flower during their 32nd Annual James A. Cullen Memorial Golf Outing which took place recently on Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk Counties).
