Cape May County Park and Zoo Field Trip

Our middle school students had the opportunity to visit Cape May County Park and Zoo. The students observed animal life focusing on the animal habitats that they lived in and what the animals consumed.

The students were not frightened and had positive responses to being close to the lions and bears at the zoo. A few of the students had been researching endangered species and had the chance to [...]

May Events and Activities

We wrapped up the end of the school year with a flurry of activities! Our second annual Family BBQ had a great turnout followed by a graduation party for our departing seniors. The students made their own tie-dye shirts for special events at school and put the skills they learned in our new Wellness Program to good use during an obstacle course competition. Field Day was a huge hit (for staff and students alike!), especially the water balloon free-for-all. We hope our students enjoy their break and come back ready to learn during the Extended School Year! If you [...]

Mental Health Awareness Month

May 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of Mental Health Awareness month! Our theme this year was Stomping Out Stigma and Bringing Hope. We were so excited to educate and spread awareness among the students. Some of our graduating seniors became advocates and presented about depression and anxiety. The team of Therapists presented about mental health facts and statistics, stigma, and resources for those in need of support. Students created "mental health memorial bags" to represent themselves and those in their lives that have been affected by mental health concerns, creating a beautiful memorial of hope and support. [...]
