The Forum School
The Forum School is a private, non-profit, non-sectarian day program for developmentally atypical children through 21 years of age.
The Forum School offers a therapeutic educational environment for children who cannot be accommodated in a public school setting. Psycho-educational and behavioral techniques are utilized along with a structured, developmentally stimulating curriculum appropriate to each student's level. Classes, which are ungraded, are small, with a ratio of at least one adult for every two children.
Teachers, administrators, and consulting staff collaborate with the student's Child Study Team and parents to develop an Individualized Educational Program addressing his/her specific needs.
On Friday, October 23, several classes volunteered to collect at the local Stop & Shop for our annual food drive which is donated to a local food bank. Our outing was HUGE success! In addition to a large amount of food, we also collect about $250 in monetary donations! Thanks to all who participated and donated to this wonderful cause!
A huge THANK YOU to the NJLCA, Jody Shilan, Danielle Goldstein, and Gail Woolcott for designing and installing our new Sensory Garden and outdoor classroom. A ribbon-cutting was held on October 7 and students got a chance to thank some of the MANY landscapers that donated supplies and their time during hot, August weekends to bring this project to life!
The L.I.F.T. program will be collecting food items to donate to a local food pantry from Oct 13th – Nov 11th! Please see attached flyer for a specific list of items needed. Thank you!
Welcome back! We hope you all had an enjoyable summer vacation! I’d like to welcome our two new staff members: Katherine Kandravy, our social worker, and Joe Rosolen, our new cook. We have an exciting year in store for all of our students and look forward to sharing it all with you at Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 30! One big change is that Forum is now providing OT and PT services. We are currently contracting with Rickard Rehabilitation to service our students’ OT and PT needs. As always, please keep the lines of communication open with your child’s teacher so we can all work together to maximize his or her progress this year!
All the best,
Brian & Vicki
