On Tuesday, November 6, paraprofessional staff from each site gathered at PS 154 for a half-day of training. The day began with a Back to Basics PowerPoint by Coach Vernice Borleo and 397 Coordinator Katie McLaughlin. Speech Teachers, Occupational Therapists, and Physical Therapists from each site created presentations to refresh the staff on best practices from their respective disciplines as well. Throughout the AM sessions, the paraprofessionals were engaged, entertained, and rewarded for their participation!
P7 OTs and PTs created an exciting obstacle course in the gym with a tunnel, row boat, tent and a campfire to eat some yummy marshmallows!
Speech teachers created a fun summer camp photo booth! The students had fun being silly with the props!
On Water Day, the students played in the sprinkler, went fishing, blew some bubbles, and had fun wetting each other with the water squirters.
Our kids and staff had so much fun!!
At girl’s club our beautiful girls engage in a variety of activities such as: crafting, independent stations, and dancing. We promote and encourage social interactions and conversations amongst our girls. We love our girls and they love Girl’s Club! Check out our video of what we do and how much fun we all have!!
