This Spring the students and staff of the Bleshman School were fortunate enough to be a part of the NY Giants Play 60 Challenge.
The Transition Center at Wood-Ridge began the Month of May with a school-wide trip to the Planetarium at Morris County College. Students and staff enjoyed a constellation of stars and learned to identify their locations. We learned about the planets and their surfaces. Students had a glimpse of campus life as they enjoyed lunch by making independent choices and purchases in the student center/cafeteria.
Preparation is underway this month for the annual Prom enjoyed by students from all classes. In the true spirit of the Transition Center, along with the weekly internships, school trips were planned to Turtle Back Zoo, Bowling and the Aquarium, just to name a few.
Students continue their Internships at Marshalls, Fiesta, Toys R Us, Goodwill and Hackensack Hospital along with many others. Nutrition and a healthy living style is highlighted in ADL classes and visits to the Health Barn located in Ridgewood. Students have learned to make better choices and are more informed. Our music show will take place this May. Parents and staff always enjoy the enthusiasm displayed by the students.
Graduates enjoyed Dave and Busters and will be going to Medieval Times this month as well. As we end the month, we start to say goodbye to our graduates, we start to prepare for graduation, as we celebrate the growth and friendships that have developed.
