Greenhouse

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!

We welcome everyone back for a new and exciting school year. We have a few additional resources in our new and improved version of Curiosity Corner. Curiosity Corner is a comprehensive preschool program. The newest version includes a home link DVD, to create a stronger connection at home. The focus on oral language and social-emotional development are very evident in this new version. Interactive whiteboard videos and support is built in to the curriculum. We are looking forward to fun and productive school year!

BELA places preschool and kindergarten students with disabilities in a typical early childhood educational center setting along with typically developing peers. Our mission is to provide a rich learning environment for students with disabilities and their typically developing peers. The program offers a full-day integrated preschool class and an integrated kindergarten class.  Our goal is to see our students move on to an integrated elementary school setting.

A structured curriculum, Curiosity Corner and Kinder Corner, related services, and enrichment activities in physical education, art, and music are all components of the BELA program. Instruction is delivered in an integrated/inclusive manner where all students learn together. Related services are provided as per the student's Individualized Education Plan (IEP) via an integrated approach with opportunities for individual therapy and/or small group instruction. Parents also have the option of registering for before- and after-school day care services at an additional fee.

For more information regarding before and after care at BELA, please go to Bergen County Technical Schools, Day Care web page.
