Scott Kallensee, Chartwells Director of Dining Services and Beth McCann, Chartwells Assistant Director of Dining Services presented Superintendent Howard Lerner, Director of Instruction Tara Bohan and the staff and students of New Bridges with a generous donation of raised beds and garden soil for our horticulture program. New Bridges students have been planting herbs and vegetables in the greenhouse and will soon fill the beds donated by Chartwells with summer vegetables. This week we harvested our first group of lettuce which was made into delicious salads for staff and students. Our school community is looking forward to expanding our crop making us a farm to table school!

graduation capsOn August 31, The Careers through Technology (CTT) Adult Program graduated Chasen Brown and Jacob “Yasha” Kaminer in a ceremony at the New Bridges’ Atrium. Distinguished guests included Superintendent Dr. Howard Lerner, and Directors of Instruction Mitchell Badiner and Tara Bohan. Several members from the community, family and friends were in attendance to celebrate this special occasion.

During Chasen’s time at CTT, he developed an extensive knowledge of computer technology becoming proficient in the areas of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Additionally, Chasen mastered skills necessary in order to become self-reliant, independent in daily living activities, make informed decisions and advocate for himself. During his tenure at CTT, Chasen sought and gained employment at Hillcrest Gardens in Paramus developing appropriate job skills, interpersonal skills, independent travel, and structured techniques. Chasen also worked in the Adult Programs by entering and processing all district food orders in our vendor’s data base. Chasen will continue his employment at Hillcrest Gardens and will attend Bergen Community College pursuing an Associate’s Degree in Psychology.

Yasha additionally has become accomplished in the area of technology honing his skills in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Publisher. During his time at CTT, Yasha has also enjoyed working on several research assignments throughout the years presenting to the class and improving his own public speaking skills. Yasha gained employment with Bowen and Bowen Accounts and Auditors in Hackensack through the instruction and support of CTT staff and will continue in his capacity there. Additionally, Yasha is employed by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office. Yasha will also be attending the Opportunity Center in Fair Law where he will explore his passion of the arts specially in the area of music.

The BCSS Adult Programs’ staff are proud of these two individuals, and congratulate them on completing all the requirements necessary to graduate from the CTT Program. We wish them well in their future endeavors.
