ASD Fitness Center Hosts Prom On Saturday

The ASD Fitness Center, a specialized fitness facility designed for those with special needs, along with Project CASY (Community Autism Social at Yale) is hosting a Prom this Saturday, June 8, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
Since a typical prom is not always welcoming to all students, the ASD Fitness Center and Project CASY are creating an environment which will allow for a magical evening for everyone.  Attendees will be able to show their moves on the dance floor, choose to bedazzle prom king or queen crowns and pose for photos.
Since guests may have different sensitivities based on their unique abilities, the lighting will be comfortable, the dance floor and music will be located in a separate room and there will be quiet areas in place for attendees to participate in crafts, a sensory touch station or just relax.  There will be a range of activities all ages are welcome to attend.
The Prom will take place at the ASD Fitness Center, 307 Racebrook Road, Orange.
RSVP is Required. Call 203-553-9508 or visit info@asdfitnesscenter.com

Jamie Hulley Foundation Brings Songwriting Program To Race Brook School

 Around Town, Home, Latest News, School News, Today's Events  Comments Off on Jamie Hulley Foundation Brings Songwriting Program To Race Brook School
May 292019
 

Students learning about the structural possibilities of a song.

Sixth graders in Bernadette Bober’s room at Race Brook School are participating in a songwriting workshop.

This program was made possible by a grant awarded to RBS from the  Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation.

Students were asked to brainstorm freely as a whole and then broken into smaller groups to allow for the development of themes, lyrics, and melodies.

The groups were offered guidance as needed but encouraged to work as a team to flesh out their ideas. This gets them out of their comfort zone and fosters cooperation and team building.

This program is called “Write it Out”  started by Guilford-based singer/songwriter Laura Clapp. She is a Berklee College of Music graduate, mother of two and performer who loves working with children through song.

Amity Students Participate In PEACE Project

 Amity High School, Around Town, Home, Latest News, School News, Today's Events  Comments Off on Amity Students Participate In PEACE Project
May 242019
 

Students at Amity Middle School in Bethany, Amity Middle School in Orange, and Amity Regional High School have been working to paint symbols of peace, harmony, and unity. 

Throughout Amity Regional School District No. 5 schools The Peace Project will be installed in outdoor areas, such as our own courtyards.

This project of peace is a direct response to the anti-Semitic concerns that were raised at Amity Regional High School earlier this school year. 

The Peace Project showcases that the Amity community does not condone discriminatory sentiments and instead wishes to live in a community of support and peace.  It is up to us, as members of this community, to work to make this wish a reality.
