A big congratulations to our Middle School Engineering and Design students who participated in the "Schools That Can" Design Challenge. The virtual event allowed six schools located in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York to go head-to-head on innovative design concepts. "Best Overall," "Best Design" and "Best Presentation" awards were given, and our Middle School won "Best Overall." Under the guidance of Mr. Jason Clarkson, three students, Caleb Gratner, Raymond Wauthier, and Angelo Valeriano, prepared a 4-minute presentation that offers a variety of plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The presentations were judged by a six-member panel of expert judges. We are so proud of our students, and their hard work and commitment to this project.
We've partnered with several local school districts to bring a series of informative sessions to our families. The four-session series will cover a variety of special education topics that will provide resources and tools that support our students and families. Click here to register.
