Message From The President
Who's really being tested?
Watching my son, Bennett, take a test for the first time was incredibly nerve wracking. Since our pediatrician thought he might have a language delay, my wife and I had arranged to have him assessed through the Early Intervention Program overseen by Suffolk County. The evaluator came to our house and, after asking us several questions, invited Bennett to play with some household items and toys that she had brought along while asking him questions.
Museums For All

We are pleased to announce that we have joined Museums for All, an initiative that enables low-income families to visit CMEE for free with the presentation of an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. Museums for All is part of CMEE’s broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome everyone who wishes to visit the Museum.

Congrats, Clara and Natalie!
Clara Oppenheimer and Natalie Brooks, two CMEE volunteers who've been instrumental in the success of Ciencia en CMEE—our after school science program for Spanish speaking families—were recently named as the valedictorian and salutatorian of Pierson High School's 2015 graduating class! Clara will be off to study natural sciences at Tufts this fall, while Natalie heads to Cornell to focus on arts and sciences.
Best of luck!
