This grant was awarded by the Bergen County Utilities Authority in recognition of our outstanding recycling program. This is our third year receiving this prestigious award and we couldn’t be more proud. Our program has benefitted greatly from these grants, which have allowed us to purchase a new shredder for our Career Awareness Center, a greenhouse for our elective program, and a portable tent which serves as our staging area during our school-wide clean-ups.
Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan and representatives from the Bergen County Utilities Authority were on hand to present this award. Representing Bleshman at the Check Presentation Ceremony were students Taryn, Andrew, and Lynn; Dr. Howard Lerner, Superintendent; Tara Bohan, Supervisor of Instruction; Angela Cupo, Principal; and, Giordano Rodriguez, Community Integration Coach.
Congratulations everyone for all you do everyday to keep our environment and community clean and healthy.
Message from the Principal
N. A. Bleshman Regional Day School
I hope that everyone enjoyed the holidays. We at Bleshman are well underway into the New Year. Faculty, staff and students are "gearing up" for what is shaping up to be a most exciting and busy 2014.
Plans are underway for a Winter Craft activity (1-17-14), Rizzo's Wildlife Discovery Program (1-31-14) and annual Jump-A-Thon, benefiting the American Heart Association (2-7-14). Please visit our events and spotlights section and calendar on our web page for additional information and updates.
At Bleshman, we continue to provide a comprehensive school program to students, ages, three through twenty-one with cognitive and/or physical disabilities. Programming offers an exciting academic/ functional/ career-based curriculum that includes an integrated therapy approach to instruction. All instruction will also continue to be aligned to the New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards. Community-based instruction will allow students to continue to achieve exposure to workplace skills as well as aspects of industry.
Please check back for program updates throughout the school year.
